Without a new episode of “The Flash” as a lead-in and opposite the Winter Olympics, The CW’s “Black Lightning” held up pretty well Tuesday night. “The Bachelor Winter Games” had a mediocre premiere on ABC
“Black Lightning” drew a 0.5 rating in adults 18-49, off a tenth of a point from last week. That’s a season low, but given the circumstances it’s a pretty solid performance for the show.
“The Bachelor Winter Games,” featuring contestants from various “Bachelor” iterations around the world, managed a 0.8 for ABC. That’s about half the average for “The Bachelor” so far this season. A “20/20” special, “Lights, Camera, Romance!,” came in at 0.4.
The Winter Olympics posted a 15.2/25 in metered-market households (NBC and NBC Sports Net combined), up from the 14.5 (NBC only) for the comparable night of the 2014 games. Its fast national numbers are on par with Monday night’s broadcast.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||5.2/19||0.7/3||0.6/2||0.6/2||0.4/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||20.12||2.73||5.81||1.98||1.44|
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.
