Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Tuesday, June 7, 2016

Note: The CW affiliate in Chicago carried a major league baseball game in primetime, so the network’s numbers are subject to greater adjustments than usual.

The numbers for Tuesday:

Time Show Adults 18-49 Rating/Share Viewers (millions)
8 p.m. America’s Got Talent (NBC) (8-10 p.m.) 2.2/8 10.65
The Bachelorette (ABC) (8-10 p.m.) 2.0/7 6.70
NCIS (CBS) – R 0.8/3 6.70
Hotel Hell (FOX) 0.7/3 2.39
The Flash (The CW) – R 0.4/2 1.58
9 p.m. NCIS: New Orleans (CBS) – R 0.7/3 6.45
Coupled (FOX) 0.5/2 1.41
Containment (The CW) – R 0.4/1 1.41
10 p.m. 20/20 (ABC) – S 1.4/5 5.60
Maya & Marty (NBC) 1.2/4 4.89
Person of Interest (CBS) 1.0/3 6.38


“America’s Got Talent” came down some from its season premiere, but Tuesday’s episode still led the night in both adults 18-49 and viewers. The show posted a 2.2 in the demo, down 0.3 from last week. “Maya & Marty” (1.2) was likewise down three tenths.

A Tuesday edition of “The Bachelorette” was even with Monday’s 2.0. ABC also got a 1.4 from a special “20/20” focusing on singer Bobby Brown.

CBS’ “Person of Interest” held steady with last week’s 1.0, and FOX’s “Coupled” (0.5) also matched last week’s performance. “Hotel Hell,” however, was down a tenth at 0.7. The CW’s reruns are likely inflated due to a pre-emption in Chicago.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.9/7 1.8/6 0.8/3 0.6/2 0.4/1
Total Viewers (millions) 8.73 6.33 6.51 1.90 1.49

: 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.

  • The “Bachelorette” Episode 4 Recap Incl Next Episode Update, & Two Chad’s: The Marine & The Ex-Boyfriend – Reality Steve

    […] Ratings are in from last night, and I’m honestly surprised it did as well as it did considering Tuesday is not a “Bachelorette” night. It drew 6.7 million viewers with a 2.0 rating, which was almost identical to Monday’s night’s show (6.8, 2.0). Kaitlyn’s 4th episode last season that aired on a normal Monday night? 6.3 million and 1.8 rating. So I guess people can complain about Chad all they want (since essentially that’s what the first four episodes have focused on), but they’ll still watch. That’s why I just tune those people out. […]
