UPDATE: In time zone-adjusted “fast official” ratings, the Golden Globe Awards drew a 5.0 rating among adults 18-49 and 19 million viewers. That’s down 11 percent in adults 18-49 and 5 percent in viewers vs. the 2017 awards (5.6, 20.01 million).
The original post is below.
Early numbers for the Golden Globes are in line with last year’s ceremony.
The show drew a 13.4 household rating in the metered markets, up a tenth of a point from 13.3 last season. NBC’s broadcast is off some in the fast nationals (4.2 in adults 18-49 vs. 4.8), but it will likely adjust up in the finals. NBC will likely release time zone-adjusted ratings later in the day.
Also Sunday, an NFL wild-card game on FOX bled into primetime and helped deliver season highs for the network’s lineup. “The Simpsons” (3.4), “Ghosted” (1.6), “Family Guy” (1.5) and “The Last Man on Earth” (1.1) all had their best showings of the season in adults 18-49.
ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (1.4) also hit a season high, and “Shark Tank” tied its best with a 1.3 at 9 p.m. CBS’ “Wisdom of the Crowd” (0.7) was down 0.3 vs. its last episode (which got an NFL boost), “NCIS: Los Angeles” was steady at 0.9 and “Madam Secretary” slipped a tenth to 0.6.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||4.2/14||3.7/12||1.2/4||0.8/3|
|Total Viewers (millions)||12.65||14.46||4.77||6.87|
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.
