The CW’s superhero crossover concluded Tuesday with a sizable boost for “Legends of Tomorrow” — but nothing for “The Flash.”
Both shows scored a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49. For “Legends,” that’s a 0.4-point boost over its season average. For “The Flash,” that’s on par with its average so far. As a whole, the event’s 0.9 rating is off from last season’s 1.3 average across the four shows, but the average percentage lift is not far off (60 percent this week vs. 65 percent a year ago).
NBC led the night as “This Is Us” (2.7) hit a five-week high, “The Voice” (1.8) was up 0.1 over last week and “Chicago Med” (1.3) matched its premiere a week ago. All three shows improved in total viewers week to week.
“The Mick” (0.8) and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (0.7) each rose a tenth for FOX. “Lethal Weapon” was steady in adults 18-49 at 1.0 and had its most-watched episode of the season with 4.95 million viewers.
A pair of CBS specials were each down a fair amount from last year. “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” slipped half a point to 1.8, and “The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” (1.5) was off six tenths.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.9/7||1.5/6||0.9/3||0.9/3||0.6/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||9.74||6.92||3.46||2.75||2.54|
Late-night metered market ratings to come.
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.
