TV Ratings: Sunday July 5, 2020

With no originals airing in primetime on the broadcast nets, we have to expand our search into earlier parts of the day to find ratings successes. NBC's afternoon coverage of the 'NASCAR Cup Series' delivered a 0.62 rating in adults 18-49, a 0.3 in adults 18-34, and 4.34 million viewers. This beat out everything in primetime except for a 7pm rerun of '60 Minutes' on CBS (6.09 million). The highest-viewed program on broadcast for the day came from ABC's 'World News Tonight' (7.94 million) which also saw decent numbers in 18-49 (0.6) and 18-34 (0.3). In adults over 50 it had the highest share among all evening programs (15 share) and in total day it was only eclipsed by CBS's 'Sunday Morning' at 9am (16 share).

As how it tends to be in the summer, things were much more interesting on the cable side. TLC's '90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?' led the day in most major demos including adults 18-49 (0.88 rating), women of that demo (1.16), adults 18-34 (0.61), females 12-34 (0.74), and adults 25-54 (1.09). It tied Adult Swim's 'Robot Chicken' (0.33, 615,000) for the lead in men 12-34 (0.29), and it was also the second-most-viewed program (3.03 million).

Lead-out 'Smothered' held just about half in each of those demos though saw the best retention in 18-49 (0.45), W18-49 (0.6), and F12-34 (0.37); among total viewers it was at 1.69 million. Closing out TLC's night was 'Pillow Talk' at 0.36 in the demo (0.46 in women) with 1.54 million.

Over at Paramout, 'Yellowstone' had strong week-to-week returns, essentially holding its demo rating (down only 0.01 to 0.70) and rising to 3.73 million viewers (from 3.52 million last week). It lost some steam in men 18-49 (0.69) and males 12-34 (0.28), but rose in people over 50 (2.36). 

Elsewhere, TNT's 'Snowpiercer' held last week's series-high 18-49 score (0.31), rose in 25-54 (0.45), and remained strong in total viewers (1.14 million). At AMC, 'NOS4A2' also held its demo score from last week (0.08), but ticked down to 385,000 viewers. The BBC America run interestingly gained in the demo (to 0.02 from 0.01), but lost 13K viewers to 82,000. 

On the premium cable nets, the best demo results came from Showtime's 'The Chi' (0.10, 352,000 viewers), but lead-out 'Outcry' premiered to dismal numbers (0.02, 153,000). Also on that net were 'Black Monday' (0.02, 82,000) and 'Desus & Mero' (0.03, 92,000). HBO had 'Perry Mason' and 'I'll Be Gone in the Dark' which tied at 0.07 among 18-49, but 'Mason' (950,000) delivered more than twice the viewership of 'Dark' (402,000).
