Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Wednesday, Nov. 23, 2016

The numbers for Wednesday are predictably lower with the Thanksgiving week reruns, and a few other small drops:

Time Show Adults 18-49 Rating/Share Viewers (millions)
8 p.m. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving (ABC) 1.9/6 7.15
Survivor (CBS) (8-10 p.m.) 1.5/5 7.69
Macy’s 90th Thanksgiving Day Parade Special (NBC) 0.9/4 4.65
Lethal Weapon (FOX) – R 0.8/3 3.76
The Hollywood Walk of Fame Honors (The CW) (8-10 p.m.) – S 0.3/1 0.83
9 p.m. SNL Thanksgiving 2016 (NBC) (9-11 p.m.) – S 1.6/5 5.38
Modern Family (ABC) – R 1.3/4 4.64
Empire (FOX) – R 0.7/3 2.8
9:30 p.m. Black-ish (ABC) – R 1.1/4 3.93
10 p.m. Code Black (CBS) 0.9/3 6.16
20/20 (ABC) 0.9/3 4.3

 

The lineup was predictably different from last week’s due to the Thanksgiving day reruns and specials. ABC’s broadcast of “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” grabbed the top rating of the night however, with a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49. Meanwhile, reruns of both “Modern Family” and “Black-ish” still performed fairly well in the night with 1.3 and 1.1 ratings, respectively. “20/20” rounded out the network’s lineup for the night with a 0.9.

“SNL Thanksgiving 2016” followed behind with the second-highest rating of the night on NBC, scoring a 1.6 average rating throughout its two-hour broadcast. Right before that from 8-9 p.m., the network’s “90th Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Special” brought in a 0.9 as well.

CBS hung in there with “Survivor” scoring a 1.5 also, and its late-night broadcast of “Code Black” tying with “20/20” in the 10-11 p.m. time slot with a 0.9.

Network averages:

Definitions:

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.
