U.S. Primetime Broadcast TV Ratings: 9/25 - 10/1/2017

Below are the broadcast TV ratings for the week ending October 1, 2017. The first chart includes ratings based on households (HH), adults 18-34, adults 18-49 (to two-decimal places), adults 25-54, and total viewers (presented in millions) while the second chart presents sub-demographic ratings (divided by gender) for adults 18-34 and adults 18-49. A third chart is also provided which includes persons-using-television (PUT) 18-49 data for each day of the week (except Saturdays). Note: most reruns are excluded from the chart below.

It was premiere week for most of the broadcast networks this week. On Monday, CBS led in the advertiser-friendly 18-49 demographic and in total viewers, averaging a 2.3/8 and 10.68 million viewers. It was aided by the season premiere of 'The Big Bang Theory' (4.1/16, 17.65m) and the series premiere of 'Young Sheldon' (3.8/14, 17.21m) - the second largest premiere for a comedy since 2001's 'Inside Schwartz' (11.1/29 in 18-49s, 14.1/22 in households, 22.515 million) & 2011's '2 Broke Girls' (7.1/16, 19.37m). NBC was in close second with a 2.2/8 and 9.06 million viewers, aided by 'The Voice' (2.6/9, 10.57m) and the premiere of 'The Brave' (1.3/5, 5.96m). The biggest surprise of the night was ABC's 'The Good Doctor' which put up a 2.2/8 in the 18-49s and 11.2 million viewers.

On Tuesday, NBC dominated the night, putting up a 2.8/11 in the 18-49 demo and 10 million viewers. The season premiere of the hit drama 'This Is Us' hit series-highs in the 18-49 demo (3.9/14) and in total viewers (12.94m). With a 3 day timeshift  'This Is Us' rose to a 5.7 18-49 rating and 17.79m viewers. 'The Voice' (2.7/11, 10.94m) was no slacker either. With its older-skewing lineup, CBS was second on the night in 18-49s (1.3/5), but led in total viewers with 10.7m. The season premieres of 'NCIS' (1.6/7, 13.29m), 'Bull' (1.3/5, 10.06m), and 'NCIS: New Orleans' (1.0/4, 8.78m) rounded out CBS's night. 

On Wednesday, FOX led all of the broadcast networks in the coveted 18-49 demo (2.1/8), and CBS again won in total viewers (8.4 million). FOX was fueled by the season premieres of 'Empire' (2.4/10, 7.06m) and 'Star' (1.8/7, 5.4 million), while CBS was fueled by the premieres of 'Survivor' (1.8/6, 8.34m), 'Seal Team' (1.5/6, 9.88m), and 'Criminal Minds' (1.3/5, 7 million). 

On Thursday, CBS's 'Thursday Night Football' reigned supreme, bringing in a monster 4.8/20 adults 18-49 rating and 14.61 million total viewers. 28% of all men 18-34 who were watching television at that time were watching the game. The story; however, was the series/season premiere of NBC's revamped 'Will & Grace' which dominated everything else on the night. 'Will & Grace' had an unrounded 2.996/11 adults 18-49 rating/share and 10 million live viewers. The viewership figure increased to 14.79m with 3 day timeshift, which actually eclipsed football's 14.73m. In the overnight households, the show did a 7.9/13 in New York, a 9.3/14 in Los Angeles, and a 7.8/13 in Chicago.

On Friday, CBS won in the 18-49 bracket and in total viewers, averaging a 1.0/5 rating/share, and 8.46 million viewers. It premiered new seasons of 'MacGyver' (0.8/4, 6.69m), 'Hawaii Five-0' (1.0/5, 8.64m), and 'Blue Bloods' (1.1/5, 10.04m). ABC saw the series premiere of 'Marvel's Inhumans' (0.9/4, 3.75m), and FOX saw the premiere of 'Exorcist' (0.5/2, 1.58m), both of which flopped. 

On Saturday, 'Saturday Night Live' premiered its new season to the tune of 7.02 million viewers with 1.91 million in the 18-49 bracket. The viewership was down from last year's premiere (8.3 million), but still a high mark for the show. 

On Sunday, NBC easily won the night with help from 'Sunday Night Football' (5.8/21, 16.73m). Of all males 18-34 watching television, 29% were watching the game, and 27% of males 18-49 were watching. FOX saw the premieres of 'Bob's Burgers' (1.3/5, 2.93m), 'The Simpsons' (1.4/5, 3.26m), 'Ghosted' (1.4/5, 3.58m), 'Family Guy' (1.3/4, 2.8m), and 'The Last Man on Earth' (0.9/3, 2.28m). Other premieres of the night included ABC's 'Ten Days in the Valley' (0.5/2, 3.44m), and CBS's 'Wisdom of the Crowd' (1.3/5, 8.83m).
