FOX's Sunday comedy block has, by far, the youngest-skewing shows on broadcast with 'Bob's Burgers' the youngest (median age: 46.9) and 'Family Guy' (47.0), 'Great North' (48.7), and 'The Simpsons' (49.8) just behind.

Premium Cable Versus the Super Bowl

This was the Super Bowl-related post I was going to make before seeing NBC's press release and switching gears over to write something about that. I've always been fascinated by the decision making of networks to air new episodes of programs at the same time that the Super Bowl is airing. As the game is - by far - the largest ratings generator of the year, and towers above everything else, it seems odd on the surface for networks to continue with regularly scheduled programming while it is airing. Yet, a few still do.

Last Week Tonight (HBO): Ratings Recap

Below are the full Nielsen ratings for HBO's late-night program 'Last Week Tonight.' The show premiered April 27, 2014 and averaged a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating with 873,000 viewers in its first season. It steadily rose in the ratings over the next few seasons, peaking in its fourth season (2017) where it averaged a 0.46 rating & 1.26 million viewers, but then slowly trickled down to 0.14 & 615,000 viewers on-average in its eighth season (2021). The show was renewed for a ninth season which will air in 2022.

Curb Your Enthusiasm (HBO): Ratings Recap

HBO's 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' premiered October 15, 2000 to a 2.1 HH rating and 3.08 million viewers, but tumbled in its second week to 1.8 million and averaged ~2.1 million viewers in its first 10 episodes. A second season aired in fall 2001 with most of its episodes airing on the same nights as HBO's huge miniseries 'Band of Brothers', pushing the show up to 2.3 million viewers on-average. The third season (2002) represented the peak of the show's performance, airing behind the highest-rated season of 'The Sopranos' where it took full advantage - averaging about 4.5 million viewers. It also received a slight boost in its fourth season (3.1 million) which mostly aired behind the final season of 'Sex and the City' and the last 2 episodes airing behind the fifth-season of 'The Sopranos.' The numbers crumbled after that though, to 1.3 million in 2005 (airing behind the moderately-rated 'Rome'), and to 965,000 in 2007 (where it had no notable lead-in). It managed to pick up steam in the next two seasons, averaging about 1.2 million 2009 and just under 2 million in 2011, but then took a 6-year break and returned back down just over 1 million in fall 2017. It declined even further in 2020 (663,000) and fell to its lowest numbers ever in 2021 (441,000). There is no word yet on the status of a 12th season.

Getting On (HBO): Ratings Recap

HBO's 'Getting On' premiered November 24, 2013 to a low 520,000 viewers, but the 18-49 rating is unfortunately not known. It was never a high-ratings generator for HBO with the first season episodes mostly pulling just over 300K viewers and the following 2 seasons in the mid-to-high 200K range. It lasted longer than can probably be expected considering those numbers, but since its seasons only had 6 episodes, it only aired 18 episodes over the course of its 3 seasons. Note: the ratings for episodes 2-6 of the first season come from a source with direct access to Nielsen ratings and are not the primetime averages reported in The Futon Critic.

Some Broadcast Subdemos: Week Ending February 6, 2022

These days, sub-demographic ratings data for broadcast programs is not nearly as readily available as it is for cable programs. ShowBuzzDaily obviously posts 8 different sub-demos daily for the top 50 cable programs, but for broadcast, they unfortunately only provide demographic shares for men & women 18-49. I see some of this data every so often, but only for the higher-rated programs, so here is a peak at some of the sub-demos for the most-recent week I have data for. If a particular sub-demo isn't included for a show then I don't have it.

Super Bowl LVI Ratings Comparisons: What is the Truth?

Network spin is nothing new, and nothing I haven't talked about in-depth before - most recently in regards to HBO and "Euphoria." However, there really isn't anything quite like Super Bowl-spin. It being by far the most-watched event of the year, its ratings are reported in basically any and every U.S. news publication you can think of, and this reporting is often lifted directly from the network press release. NBC's press release is actually not bad as it's pretty transparent with the ratings; my only qualm is with the historical comparisons.

Looking at the linear TV viewership, Nielsen reported 99.178 million viewers for the game, and NBC does acknowledge this figure in their release - rounding it to an even 99.2 million. Nielsen also reported, and NBC acknowledges, an additional 1.91 million viewers on Spanish-language network Telemundo. Together, this is a linear TV total of about 101.09 million viewers. All of that is fine. The issue comes with how the streaming audience is integrated into their Total Audience Delivery (TAD) figure.

Ratings for the 2022 AFC & NFC Championship Games

While we await the ratings for Super Bowl LVI, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the numbers from the 2 conference championship games from 2 weeks ago. To begin, 2022 marked the third straight year of the NFC game beating the AFC game (2020, 2021, 2022) in total viewership after the AFC game dominated the previous four years (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019). Detailed breakdowns are provided for each game below:

Top Streaming (SVOD) Ratings: w/e Dec. 19, 2021 - w/e Jan. 16, 2022

I have not done as good a job at keeping up with posting the weekly Nielsen streaming ratings as I would've liked to, so here are the charts for the most-recent five weeks of data. Even if/when the weekly posts are delayed, I always update the individual show charts which are located in the "Streaming Archive" under the "Ratings Archive Directory" tab. 

Per usual, the charts 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.

It has been a very strong five weeks on streaming with a number of 2 billion+ minute performances. First, Netflix debuted the second season 'The Witcher' Dec. 17th, and it ranked atop the chart for 2 straight weeks with 2.19 billion minutes in its first 3 days of availability and an additional 2.73 billion the week after. It likely would've remained atop the chart for a few more weeks had it not been for the fourth-season drop of 'Cobra Kai' which delivered 2.43 billion minutes in its first 3 days (week ending Jan. 2) and held at #1 among originals the following 2 weeks. Both dwarfed the second-season launch of 'Emily in Paris' which had 938 million in its first 5 days and 1.11 billion the week after. Among movies, the story of the last 2 months has been Disney+'s 'Encanto' which logged its first full week at an impressive 2.2 billion minutes and then spent the next two weeks at just around 1.5 billion (leading among all streaming programs in the w/e Jan. 16). Finally, among acquired programming, 'Cocomelon' reached 11 straight weeks at #1 before finally (and likely temporarily) being dethroned by 'NCIS'.

Super Bowl Ratings (1967-present)

UPDATED FOR SUPER BOWL LVI: Below are the Nielsen ratings for every Super Bowl back to Super Bowl I in 1967. There are several columns of data in the chart below, including HH data (presented in ratings form & viewership form), average viewership, and total viewership for every game. Average viewership is the standard viewership metric while total viewership refers to the number of unique people who watched at least 6 minutes of the broadcast.
