News Ratings: Week Ending June 19, 2022

I don't have the full cable ratings for this week, so the charts below don't have all of the data they usually have. No NewsNation programming is available for Saturday or Sunday, 18-49 data is presented in ratings form and not viewership form, no 18-49 data is available for NewsNation programs, and there is no P55+ data available at all. The cable chart will be updated if I end up receiving the full data. 

Below are the ratings for the evening news telecasts on the three major broadcast networks: ABC (World News Tonight), CBS (CBS Evening News), and NBC (NBC Nightly News), as
 well as the daily ratings for six hours of evening/night ratings (6pm-12am) on four cable news networks: CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and NewsNation. The chart below has four columns of data (all presented in thousands): P18-49 viewers, P25-54 viewers, P55+ viewers, and total viewers. To calculate the 18-49 ratings based on the viewership, feel free to use the conversion tool in the right sidebar or calculate by hand by using the 18-49 Universe Estimate.

Cable TV Ratings: Week Ending June 19, 2022

Unfortunately I still haven't received the full cable ratings for this week, so all data below is from ShowBuzzDaily. This post will be updated with additional data if I end up receiving it at some point.

Syndicated programming, sports news, and non-original movies are not included in these charts. A second chart includes ratings data for cable sports telecasts that aired this week, and there is a separate post for cable news ratings.

Top Streaming (SVOD) Ratings: Week Ending May 15, 2022

Below are the weekly streaming/video-on-demand (SVOD) ratings for the week ending May 15, 2022. The chart below includes the top 10 original programs, top 10 movies, and top 10 acquired programs from Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Apple TV+ measured on total minutes of watch-time. The data represents only viewing within the U.S. and comes from Nielsen Media Research.

Netflix's 'Ozark' spent a third consecutive week atop the Nielsen SVOD ratings chart, logging 1.73 billion minutes of watch-time in the w/e May 15th. Though this was down by about half from last week's 3.33 billion, it was still more than double second-ranked 'The Lincoln Lawyer' which managed 884 million in its first 3 days of availability. With that 'Grace and Frankie' (584 million) dipped to 3rd among originals, just ahead of Hulu's 'Candy' which had 577 million in its first week. We had new faces atop the movie chart with Netflix's 'Senior Year' taking the top spot with 797 million in its first 3 days and 'Our Father' ranking second with 450 million in its first 5 days. This pushed Disney+'s 'Encanto' down to #3, its lowest ranking since the w/e March 27th (also #3). Finally, things were relatively steady in acquired programming with 'Cocomelon' again at the top though 'Outlander' made its first appearance since the w/e February 28, 2021.

Top Streaming (SVOD) Ratings: Week Ending May 8, 2022

Below are the weekly streaming/video-on-demand (SVOD) ratings for the week ending May 8, 2022. The chart below includes the top 10 original programs, top 10 movies, and top 10 acquired programs from Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Apple TV+ measured on total minutes of watch-time. The data represents only viewing within the U.S. and comes from Nielsen Media Research.

In the first full week of availability of its final drop of episodes, Netflix's 'Ozark' logged a huge 3.33 billion minutes of watch-time, easily ranking atop the chart. This was up from last week's already sizable 2.57 billion and actually ranks #8 all-time since Nielsen began tracking SVOD ratings. 'Grace and Frankie' ranked a distant-second, up slightly from last week, and Disney+'s 'Moon Knight' held the third spot. On the movie-front, the 1998 film 'U.S. Marshals' registered 354 million minutes in its first week on the streamer, ranking second behind 'Encanto' which had 449 million. Finally, 'Cocomelon' (701 million) again led all acquired programming and 'Gilmore Girls' returned to the chart for the first time since the w/e March 27th.

Cable Ratings Issue

I have yet to receive the full cable ratings for the week of June 13-19, 2022 and it remains unclear if I will end up getting them. If I do get them then I will obviously post the top 200 reruns and the normal cable post; however, if I don't get them by Thursday then I will just make the weekly cable & news recaps using data from ShowBuzzDaily and TVNewser. If that's the case then I won't be able to take any requests for that week.

NBA Finals Ratings (1999-present)

Below are the Nielsen ratings for the last 24 years of NBA Finals, back to 1999. Household (HH) ratings, 18-49 ratings, and viewership (to 3-decimal places) have been provided for each year; M18-49 ratings have been provided for each year that they were available for. The color-coding works exactly how it works in the World Series post with each metric compared against each other: i.e. all HH ratings are compared, and all 18-49 ratings are compared. The greener the chart, the better the ratings. Note: I've included both the undercount viewership and revised viewership for 2020 and 2021; this post will be updated if/when additional data is located and/or to add older years.

2022 NBA Finals & Out-of-Home

Last month I made two posts looking at the ratings of the first and second rounds of the NBA Playoffs from 2019 and 2022 and estimating the out-of home (OOH) viewership. Nielsen began including OOH viewership as part of the linear ratings reporting beginning in September 2020, so it's been difficult to make meaningful comparisons between today's ratings and ratings from before Sept. 2020. And since Nielsen doesn't ever provide a breakout of the OOH from the in-home viewership, I used household (HH) ratings and viewers-per-home (VPN) estimations to extract the portion of the OOH audience that is now lumped in with the in-home audience.

Short hiatus

Hello,

I've had a lot going on in my life in the last week and in addition to that, I am traveling until Thursday, so the weekly broadcast, cable, and news posts will be delayed until later this week unfortunately. I will resume posting the older 2001 & 2002 data hopefully by this weekend or next week.

Top Streaming (SVOD) Ratings: Week Ending May 1, 2022

Below are the weekly streaming/video-on-demand (SVOD) ratings for the week ending May 1, 2022. The chart below includes the top 10 original programs, top 10 movies, and top 10 acquired programs from Netflix, Disney+, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and Apple TV+ measured on total minutes of watch-time. The data represents only viewing within the U.S. and comes from Nielsen Media Research.

With the final batch of episodes dropped Apr. 29th, Netflix's 'Ozark' was propelled to the top of the streaming (SVOD) chart for the week ending May 1st. The show logged 2.58 billion minutes of watch-time during the week, though the new episodes were only available for the last 3 days. This was Ozark's best total since the week ending Jan. 30, 2022 (4.1 billion) - the first full week of availability for the first-half of the fourth season. Notably, this week's figure was significantly lower than the previous 2 release-week frames of w/e Jan. 23, 2022 (2.9 billion) and w/e Mar. 29, 2020 (3.5 billion) though it still ranks #19 all-time. 

Elsewhere this week, 'Grace and Frankie' ranked second among originals with 701 million minutes of watch-time due to the release of its final batch of episodes. This is a sizable jump from the 465 million minutes that the show garnered in the w/e Aug. 15, 2021 when the season's first set of episodes were released. On the movie side, Disney+'s 'Encanto' remained atop (439 million), and in acquired programming, Netflix's 'Cocomelon' reclaimed its spot at the summit (767 million) for the first time since the w/e Jan. 9, 2022.
