Summer Week 3 Sitcom Ratings; Coming Week Preview

Summer is in session and it's repeats galore mainly for sitcoms. We will be back with our normal weekly report with the first four nights numbers and analysis in the fall, but we still will have our regular how the sitcoms did all summer long, along with a coming week preview! Here are our summer ratings:

Last Sunday Sitcoms (counts for week of June 7-June 13)
  • 'Til Death (Fox) - Only 2.07 million and a 0.8 18-49 rating for an all-new episode...series finale tonight.
  • Sons of Tucson (Fox) - Did even worse than the lead-in with 1.94 million and only a 0.8 18-49 rating for an all-new episode of this canceled series.
  • The Simpsons (Fox) - A repeat did 4.00 million and a 1.8 18-49 rating. Up from last week. Decent.
  • The Cleveland Show (Fox) - 3.82 million and a 1.7 18-49 rating for a repeat, nice holds from the lead-in.
  • Family Guy (Fox) - A repeat did 4.49 million and a 2.1 18-49 rating. Very good 18-49 rating for a repeat in the summer.
  • American Dad! (Fox) - 3.96 million and a 1.7 18-49 rating for a repeat, much better retention than it normally does when it is all-new.
