ABC’s drama “The Family” got to a mediocre start Thursday, drawing a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49, below “Scandal’s” usual number in the hour. That it was against weaker than usual competition, since “The Blacklist” had the night off for NBC, doesn’t look great for the show. (“The Family” was also lower than most TVBTN users thought it would be.)
On the plus side for ABC, “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.2) was up week to week and had the night’s best 18-49 rating. “How to Get Away with Murder” (1.4) was off a tenth from last week.
“Life in Pieces” (1.8) fell 0.3 vs. last week without an original “Big Bang Theory” as a lead-in. “Mom” (1.7), “2 Broke Girls” (1.7) and “Elementary” (1.1), however, were largely unaffected; “Mom” was off 0.1 and the others were even.
“American Idol” (1.9) was down two tenths from last week for FOX. “Shades of Blue” (1.0) was steady for NBC despite a much softer lead-in with a “Blindspot” rerun in place of “The Blacklist.” “Legends of Tomorrow” held at 0.9 for The CW, but “The 100” slipped a tenth to 0.5.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.9/6||1.7/6||1.6/5||0.7/2||0.7/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||8.68||6.00||7.46||1.85||3.08|

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.
