Superstore grew its total audience for the fourth consecutive episode, while The Big Bang Theory‘stayed atop the non-sports heap Thursday despite declining. The 3.42 million viewers for Superstore are a season high for the show, and its 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 is steady for the sixth week in a row.
NBC’s Windy City trio gives the network another solid performance to close out 2018. All three of NBC’s Chicago shows led their hour in total viewers, and Fire (1.2 rating among adults 18-49) and PD (1.1) also topped their slots in the demo.
The Conners recorded a season low among adults 18-49 Tuesday, and the rest of ABC’s lineup slipped a bit, too. The Roseanne spinoff fell a tenth of a point in adults 18-49 to 1.3, its low mark of the season. The show’s 6.63 million viewers were also a season low. The Kids Are Alright (0.8), Black-ish (0.8), Splitting Up Together (0.6) and The Rookie (0.7) all declined by 0.1 in the demo as well.
The Good Doctor‘s fall finale showed improved ratings Monday, and Deal or No Deal‘s brief return to NBC turned in decent numbers. ABC’s numbers are inflated thanks to Monday Night Football preemptions in Philadelphia and Washington, but The Good Doctor‘s 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 is currently running 0.2 ahead of last week, when it was also bumped in two markets for football.
It took a trio of attempts but the Los Angeles Chargers were finally able to get that field goal to claim a 33-30 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on a jaw clenching Sunday Night Football on NBC. Yet, in a season that has seen upticks from last year’s hobbled results, the ratings stumbled for the network or the NFL. Up against a Garth Brooks special, the Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show Holiday Special and a full loaded primetime, last night’s game snagged a 12.3/21 in metered market results.
CBS announced Sunday the game drew a 10.52 rating, an increase of 25% over last year’s SEC title game between Auburn and Georgia and the best rating for any non-bowl game since LSU and Alabama played a No. 1 vs. No. 2 matchup in November 2011. That Game of the Century got an 11.9 rating on CBS.
