UPDATE: CBS has released time zone-adjusted ratings for “Hunted,” which put the show at a 4.0 in adults 18-49 — the best series debut of the season — and 11.83 million viewers. The original post is below.
CBS’ new unscripted series “Hunted” got off to a strong start Sunday night following the AFC Championship game. The show, which follows teams of two who try to go off the grid and the professionals who track them down, scored a preliminary 3.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.77 million viewers.
Its ratings will likely change some in the finals, but “Hunted” is likely to end up as the top series premiere of the season thus far.
The AFC title game’s preliminary numbers are down vs. last year’s primetime NFC Championship on FOX in adults 18-49 (13.4 vs. 14.3) but up a little bit in total viewers (41.25 million vs. 40.69 million). There was a sizable dropoff in its last hour as the game ended before 10 p.m. ET.
The only other original program Sunday was “Son of Zorn” on FOX, which drew a 0.9 opposite CBS’ NFL broadcast.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||11.0/32||1.0/3||0.7/2||0.6/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||33.63||2.51||3.34||3.17|
Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
