lack of posting

Sorry for the lack of posting recently. A lot of life-changes are happening at the moment that have been taking up a lot of my mental energy and physical time, so I haven't had the opportunity to put a lot of effort into posting the old ratings data. I'm hoping things will get back to normal soon, but until then, the current ratings will continue to be posted Mondays but the old stuff will be more sporadic.

Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency (BBC America): Ratings Recap

One of my really good friends, and my travel companion on the recent trip to LA, is big fan of BBC America's short-lived program 'Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency' and so I've heard all about this show for a while now. So it seemed apt to finally do a recap of its ratings. The show premiered October 22, 2016 to an OK 0.12 adults 18-49 rating and 437,000 viewers, but spent the majority of its 8-episode first season at around 0.09 in the demo and between 200K-300K viewers which was apparently high enough to warrant a second-season renewal. The second season aired in fall 2017 and rated just slightly below the first, at 0.07 in the demo and about 250,000 viewers. It was not renewed for a third season and aired just 18 episodes over the course of its run.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (WB/UPN): Ratings Recap

'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' premiered on the WB March 10, 1997 with a 3.2/5 household rating/share and 4.59 million viewers - solid numbers based on the low-rated WB network was getting at the time. It sunk to as few as 2.47 million viewers in its short 12-episode first season, but rebounded up to 4 million by its finale. The show's ratings soared in its second season, averaging 5.7 million viewers and reaching well over 7 million (and over 3.0 in the 18-49 demo) for a slew of episodes in January 1998. The show's third season logged the highest average viewership of any season (6.1 million) despite some scheduling weirdness which pushed the high-rated season finale (6.53 million viewers; 3.1/10 A18-49) out to mid-July 1999. 'Buffy' remained remarkably stable for the next few seasons, pulling in over 5.2 million viewers on-average and holding at comfortably higher than a 2.0 demo rating. The show moved networks over to UPN where its sixth season premiere was reported to have logged the highest 18-49 rating (3.8/10) and second-best viewership (7.65 million) of its entire run, and viewership for the season as a whole actually averaged slightly higher than the previous 2 WB runs at 5.34 million. A seventh and final season premiered in 2002 with the fall portion holding at just around 5 million viewers, but unfortunately the 2003 portion fell into the 3-4 million range and below a 2.0 A18-49 rating and the show was not renewed. Note: I only have very limited 18-49 information for the first 3 seasons, but there is full data beginning with season 4.

Sporadic posting for the next week

Hello, starting tomorrow and for the next week or so I will be away in Los Angeles, so I will be not be posting any old 2000-2002 ratings data until I return. I will try to have the top 200 reruns for the week ending March 6th posted on Monday per usual, but the broadcast, cable ratings, and news ratings may be delayed until next Thursday or Friday.

Also, just as an update: I recently finished posting all of the data from the 2009-10 TV season and have transitioned over to working on summer & fall 2014/spring 2015. I will return to do the 2010-11 season at some point (hopefully before summer), but I've felt compelled to do 2014-15 for a while now, so I just want to get that over with. The posts from this period are being back-dated and this will be continue to be the case for all posts in the 2013-14 season & 2014-15 season. When they are eventually completed, the 2010-11, 2011-12, and 2012-13 seasons will posted as normal and not back-dated.

Finally, my goal is to have the 2000-01, 2001-02, and 2002-03 seasons completed by the end of the summer.

Ryan :)

Intruders (BBC America): Ratings Recap

BBC America's 'The Intruders' premiered August 23, 2014 to a 0.23 adults 18-49 rating and 796,000 viewers, which in any other circumstance would've been great numbers for the network. But this program had a sizable 'Doctor Who' lead-in of 0.85 & 2.2 million which it was only able to hold about a third. In week 2 it tumbled down to 0.08 & 366,000 viewers and remained well-below even that low mark for the rest of its run - holding only about a fourth of the 'Doctor Who' numbers. Needless to say, it was not renewed for a second season.

Euphoria (HBO): Ratings Recap

HBO's 'Euphoria' premiered June 16, 2019 to a 0.17 adults 18-49 rating with 577,000 viewers and averaged 560,000 linear TV viewers over the course of its first 8 episodes. Based on the available data, linear viewers seemed to account for about half of total same-night viewership during the first season with HBO reporting 1.2 million multi-platform viewers for the first season finale. A second season aired two-and-a-half years later and saw a significant decline in linear viewership, premiering to just 254,000 viewers and averaging below 350,000 throughout its run. Interestingly, the multi-platform portion of the audience rose to nearly 90% this season according to HBO's numbers, so with those figures included, the show averaged about 4 million viewers per episode. It concluded its second-season with the largest linear audience (625,000) and largest multi-platform audience (6.6 million) of its entire run and will be back for a third season. Note: I included a table at the bottom with ratings for the second season same-night re-airings, but I don't have that data for the first season. Additionally, I included HBO's reported multi-platform viewers (presented in millions) in the tables for episodes that the data was available for (even though the validity of these numbers is in dispute).
