A premiere- and return-heavy night brought a definite mixed bag in the ratings Sunday.
The season premiere of “Little Big Shots” led the night with a 2.0 rating among adults 18-49 for NBC, down a good amount from the 2.9 for its series debut last year but in line with its Season 1 average. “Chicago Justice” (1.4) was off 0.3 from its midweek premiere but held up fairly well, putting up the night’s second-best rating. “Shades of Blue” (1.0) was also down considerably from its series premiere last year (1.9) but on par with where it ended.
At ABC, “Once Upon a Time” returned from hiatus to a 0.9, even with its last episode of the fall. “Time After Time” managed only a 0.6 for its premiere, putting it in second place among time-travel shows for the night.
FOX’s time-travel comedy “Making History” (0.9) fared slightly better, though it was below “Son of Zorn’s” average for the season. “The Last Man on Earth” (1.0) returned up slightly from its last episode.
“NCIS: Los Angeles” scored a 1.2 for CBS, also up a tick from its last episode. “Madam Secretary” and “Elementary” each dipped a tenth of a point.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.3/5||0.9/3||0.9/3||0.8/3|
|Total Viewers (millions)||7.56||7.89||2.13||3.33|
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.
