Summer Week 4 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 3, week of June 14-20)
  • 'Til Death (Fox) - Only 1.53 million and a 0.6 18-49 rating for the series finale. That is the lowest ratings for the show ever, I believe. Not a good way to go out.
  • Sons of Tucson (Fox) - Did even worse than the lead-in with 1.37 million and only a 0.6 18-49 rating for an all-new episode of this canceled series. It will be moving to 7pm starting tonight...how low will it go there?
  • The Simpsons (Fox) - A repeat did 3.22 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating. Down from previous week...maybe the terrible 7pm hour was the reason.
  • The Cleveland Show (Fox) - 3.5 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating for a repeat, down from previous week but built from the lead-in.
  • Family Guy (Fox) - A repeat did 4.59 million and a 2.1 18-49 rating. Very good 18-49 rating for a repeat in the summer and the same as previous week despite 7-9pm being down.
  • American Dad! (Fox) - 3.84 million and a 1.7 18-49 rating for a repeat, down some from previous week.

Summer Week 4 (June 21-27)

Monday Sitcoms
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS) - 4.77 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating for a repeat. Down some from previous week.
  • Rules of Engagement (CBS) - 5.75 million and a 1.8 18-49 rating for a repeat airing. Built from the lead-in again and down a bit from previous week in viewers but up a tenth in 18-49.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS) - 8.54 million and a 2.2 18-49 rating for a repeat, down from previous week and the lowest ratings it has done this summer.
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS) - 8.32 million and a 2.5 18-49 rating for a repeat. Built from the lead-in in 18-49 again, but down some from previous week again. As with the lead-in, lowest ratings it has done this summer. Still good, though.
Tuesday Sitcoms
  • None.
Wednesday Sitcoms
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS) - A Wednesday repeat did only 3.65 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating.
  • Rules of Engagement (CBS) - A Wednesday repeat at 8:30pm did 3.95 million and 1.2 18-49 rating...about the same as previous week when it aired at 9:30.
  • The Middle (ABC) 2 airings - The 8pm repeat did 4.08 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating, but the 8:30pm repeat built on that and did 4.13 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating. Both up from previous week, though.
  • Modern Family (ABC) - A repeat at 9pm did 4.33 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating. On par with previous week.
  • Cougar Town (ABC) - A summer repeat did only 2.89 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating. Could be better given the lead-in. I guess extra exposure is all that is needed in summer.
Thursday Sitcoms
  • Community (NBC) - A repeat only did 2.2 million and a 0.7 18-49 rating. Lower even than previous week. Yes, it is summer, but this is not good.
  • 100 Questions (NBC) - An all-new episode did 1.74 million and a 0.6 18-49 rating. Ouch again. Down from previous week and series lows again. Yet NBC keeps it on the air?
  • The Office (NBC) 2 airings - The regular 9pm edition repeat did only 2.34 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating, building from the lead-in. A 10pm repeat did 2.22 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating. This show doesn't seem to repeat as well anymore...but on par from previous week at least.
  • 30 Rock (NBC) -Airing at 9:30pm, a repeat did just 1.99 million and a 0.8 18-49 rating, down from previous week.
  • Parks and Recreation (NBC) - A 10:30pm repeat didn't do well, doing only 1.98 million and a 0.8 18-49 rating, but oddly it was up from previous week. These NBC comedy numbers are terrible...repeat or not.
