U.S. Primetime Broadcast TV Ratings: 10/9 - 10/15/2017

Below are the broadcast TV ratings for the week ending October 15, 2017. The first chart includes ratings based on households (HH), adults 18-34, adults 18-49 (most 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.

On Monday, 'The Big Bang Theory' was not enough to save CBS from dropping to third among the big 4 networks in the 18-49 ratings (1.3/5). NBC (2.0/7) beat out ABC (1.5/5) in the demo, but ABC won the night in total viewers (9.72 million). The highest airing on the broadcast networks was 'The Big Bang Theory' (2.9/11, 13.13M) and the lowest belonged to CW's premiere of 'Valor' (0.3/1, 1.2M). NBC's demo win was propelled by 'The Voice' (2.4/8, 10.91M), while ABC's viewership win was made possible with help from both 'Dancing with the Stars' (1.3/4, 9.25M), and 'The Good Doctor' (2.0/7, 10.69M). CBS's comedy block of '9JKL' (1.4/5, 7.04M), 'Kevin Can Wait' (1.2/4, 6.01M), and 'Me, Myself & I' (0.9/3, 4.33M) continued to underperform in week 3. The season premiere of 'Supergirl' on the CW, brought in 1.87 million viewers and a 0.5/2 18-49 rating/share. 

On Tuesday, NBC won the night in the 18-49s (2.1/8), but CBS's older skewing lineup pulled out the win in total viewers (11.46 million). NBC received a lot help from hits 'The Voice' (2.4/9, 11.09 million), and 'This Is Us' (2.8/10, 11.02M), but couldn't overcome the deficit left by 'Law & Order True Crime' (1.1/4, 4.72M) which lost a whopping 1.75 rating and over 6 million viewers from its 'This Is Us' lead-in. The top 2 shows of the night in total viewers were CBS's 'NCIS' (1.4/6, 13.6M), and 'Bull' (1.3/4, 11.26M); its other entry, 'NCIS: New Orleans' had a mediocre 1.0/4 rating/share and just over 9.5 million viewers. On The CW, the fourth season premiere of 'The Flash' had a 1.05/4 18-49 rating/share & 2.84 million viewers, its lowest season premiere to date, and down from last year's 1.3/5 & 3.17 million. The third season premiere of 'Legends of Tomorrow' was also its lowest start, and too, was down from last year's premiere (0.6/2, 1.82M). 

On Wednesday, FOX won the night in the 18-49s (1.7/7), but CBS won primetime in total viewers (7.3 million). On FOX, 'Empire' (2.0/8, 5.93 million) led all of primetime in the 18-49s, and 'Star' (1.5/5, 4.51M) was third on the day in that demo. In African-Americans, 'Empire' had 3.86 million and 'Star' had 3.04 million; in females 18-34, they were ranked 1 and 2 on the day at 1.8/9 and 1.4/6 respectively. On CW, the season premiere of 'Riverdale' (0.8/3, 2.34M) hit series-highs in viewers and 18-49, beating its series-premiere back in January (0.5/2, 1.38M); it had 161,000 viewers aged 2-11, and 422,000 viewers aged 12-17. CW's other premiere, 'Dynasty' began with a 0.3/1 18-49 rating (476,000 in that demo) and 1.26 million viewers; it had 52,000 viewers aged 2-11 and 101,000 viewers aged 12-17. 

On Thursday, CBS's coverage of 'Thursday Night Football' between the Eagles and Panthers, pushed it to a daily win in both 18-49 (4.1) and total viewers (13.49 million). The game had a 5.1/26 rating/share in males 18-34, and a 6.2/24 rating in males 18-49. In Philadelphia, the game had a 15.4/37 persons 2+ rating/share and 1.13 million viewers, and in Charlotte, it had a 12.3/31 rating and 356,000 viewers (it had 480,000 in New York and 365,000 in Los Angeles). ABC averaged a 1.4 18-49 rating and propelled by 'Grey's Anatomy' (2.1/8, 8.08M), 'Scandal' (1.2/4, 5M), and 'How to Get Away with Murder' (1.0/4, 3.88M). NBC's top airing was 'Will and Grace' (1.8/6, 6.72M), and on FOX, 'The Orville' (1.0/4, 3.37M) narrowly edged out 'Gotham' (0.9/3, 2.75M). Finally, on the CW, 'Supernatural' premiered its 13th season to 2.1 million viewers, it's highest numbers since last season's premiere (2.15M); and 'Arrow' premiered its sixth season to 1.52 million - its lowest number for a premiere yet.

On Friday, CBS claimed victory in both the 18-49s (0.9/4) and in total viewers (8.08 million), NBC was second (0.7/4, 3.45M). CBS's lineup: 'MacGyver' (0.8/4, 6.74M), 'Hawaii Five-0' (1.0/4, 8.51M), and 'Blue Bloods' (0.9/4, 8.98M) led every hour of primetime. A 2-hour 'Dateline' (0.9/4, 4.9M) was enough to push NBC to second for the 9pm hour and 10pm hour. The CW premiered new seasons of 'Jane the Virgin' (0.3/1, 681,000) and 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' (0.2/1, 624,000), both of which continue to push the downward ratings limits for broadcast television.

On Saturday,  NBC's 'Saturday Night Live' averaged a 2.01 18-49 rating and approximately 7.001 million viewers. Last year's week 3 airing found 7.854 million. ABC's 'Saturday Night Football' between Utah and USC had a 1.98 household rating, a 0.8 18-49 rating (1.072 million in that demo), and 3.192 million viewers.

ABC's 4pm game between Georgia Tech and Miami averaged a 2.13 household rating, 1.255 million adults 18-49, and 3.38 million total viewers.

On Sunday, NBC's coverage of 'Sunday Night Football', between the New York Giants and Denver Broncos, propelled it to a daily win in both the 18-49s (4.9/16) and total viewers (14.11 million). 'Sunday Night Football' averaged a 5.6/19 18-49 rating/share, a 9.4 household rating, and 16.16 million total viewers.  In New York City, the game had 1.32 million viewers, and in Denver, the game had 972,000 viewers.
