Week 19 TV Ratings and Analysis; How the Sitcoms Did

2012-13 Week 19 TV Ratings (first four nights, Mon-Thu): 

Households: N/A
Total Viewers: N/A.
Adults 18-49: N/A

Week 19 (Jan. 28-Feb. 3) Analysis: February sweep started on Thursday but some repeats were airing Mon-Wed, so the first full week of sweep will be this coming week. Fox saw a good week two for a new series. We don't have final network averages through Thursday, but we can  project through the first four night averages, CBS has the lead in HH/total viewers, while Fox is on top in adults 18-49. CBS is distant second place in 18-49, followed very closely by ABC, then NBC a very distant fourth. Fox is a very close second in HH/viewers, followed by ABC. Then NBC is a distant fourth and it will be a long winter for them. This is all similar to previous week, so far. When the week is done, CBS will come back and take the week in 18-49 obviously thanks to the Super Bowl tonight. No question about it. The only question is will CBS continue the streak of the previous few Super Bowls and make this the most watched Super Bowl ever again? I am thinking no. Fox will have to settle for a distant second in adults 18-49, followed by ABC and NBC battling. More on that later. As for last week, week 18, Fox took home first in adults 18-49, crushing second place CBS. Then ABC and NBC tied but were just a tenth behind CBS for third. Among total viewers, CBS took that crown over a close by Fox. ABC was third and NBC was close behind in fourth.

Monday saw Fox take the night with CBS in repeats. Starting with ABC, a two-hour The Bachelor from 8-10pm did 7.9 million and a 2.5 18-49 rating, which is on par in 18-49 with previous week but up some in total viewers. Like any good season for this series, it goes up weekly and it has not gone down all season. At 10pm, Castle was a repeat and did 6.0 million and a first place 1.4 18-49 rating.  For NBC, they had a two-hour The Biggest Loser from 8-10pm doing 6.18 million and a 2.3 18-49 rating, which is down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. It is steady but not going up like the competing ABC reality series. At 10pm, week four of new drama dud Deception didn't do much with 3.73 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, down another tenth in 18-49 from previous week and losing to repeats on ABC and CBS. Not good news and doesn't have much of a future. CBS was all repeats  with its comedies, as a repeat of How I Met Your Mother did 5.78 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, which seems below normal. A repeat of The Big Bang Theory at 8:30pm did 8.16 million and a 2.4 18-49 rating, which is solid but down eight tenths in 18-49 from previous week when its lead-in was new. At 9pm, a repeat of 2 Broke Girls followed with 7.39 million and a 2.0 18-49 rating, while solid not nearly as strong as a CBS Monday anchor should be in a repeat. Next, a repeat of Mike & Molly did 7.02 million and a 1.8 18-49 rating, nearly retaining all of its lead-in. A repeat of Hawaii Five-0 at 10pm did 6.26 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, which was only good for second place. Fox aired an all-new episode of Bones at 8 and it did 9.25 million and a 2.6 18-49 rating, which was up three tenths in 18-49 from previous week, likely helped by CBS in repeats. At 9pm, week two of new drama The Following at 9pm did 10.1 million and a 3.3 18-49 rating, which is up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week's series premiere. That's wonderful news, but keep in mind CBS was in repeats. If it can do a 3 tomorrow, then we have a big hit. The CW aired week three of The Carrie Diaries at 8 and did 1.38 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating, which is on par in 18-49 from the previous week.  At 9, 90210 was new and did only 0.78 million and a 0.4 18-49 rating, also on par with previous week in 18-49. Needs to be canceled.

On Tuesday, it was CBS with the win in 18-49  with its dramas. On CBS, a new NCIS aired at 8 and did 22.07 million and a 3.8 18-49 rating, which is amazing but still old skewing. Next a new NCIS: Los Angeles at 9 did 17.3 million and a 3.1 18-49 rating. And finally at 10pm, a new episode of freshman Vegas did 11.23 million and only a 1.9 18-49 rating, which is up from usual but it faced repeats. Onto ABC, at 8pm week two of The Taste did 4.8 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, down five tenths in 18-49 from previous week's two hour series premiere. Even so, ABC was second place at 8 behind CBS. At 9, ABC aired two new episodes of Happy Endings and did 2.92 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating for the first one and 2.85 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating for the second one. It beat the NBC comedy hour, though. At 10pm, a special encore of Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Matt Damon did a solid 3.15 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating for a repeat, better than most Private Practice airings since November. NBC aired new episodes of Betty White's Off Their Rockers from 8-9pm. At 8pm it did 5.15 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating, down two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. At 8:30pm it did better with 5.23 million and a 1.5 18-49 rating, but down three tenths in 18-49 from previous week, likely hurt by the competing ABC reality series. At 9pm, a new Go On did only 3.95 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, which is on par in 18-49 with previous week's series low. At 9:30pm, The New Normal was new and did 3.08 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week for yet another new series low. Without The Voice as a lead-in, they are tanking, as expected. At 10pm, a special Dateline did 4.92 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating. Fox aired comedies as well as a new Raising Hope at 8pm did 3.84 million and a 1.7 18-49 rating, which on par in 18-49 with previous week. A second all-new episode followed and did 3.32 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, four tenths higher in 18-49 than previous week's Ben and Kate episode, as that series is canceled. A new episode of New Girl followed at 9 with 4.74 million and a 2.6 18-49 rating, which is the best of the block and up four tenths in 18-49 from previous week. As this series has rebounded some since a series low a few weeks ago. At 9:30pm, a new The Mindy Project did 3.2 million and a 1.7 18-49 rating, up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week as its lead-in went really up. The CW aired a new Hart of Dixie at 8 and did 1.32 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. A new episode of new series Emily Owens MD at 9 did 1.33 million and only a 0.4 18-49 rating, which is on par in 18-49 with previous week. New series Cult will take over soon.

Wednesday had American Idol take the night of course since its two-hours every week and Fox only programs 2 hours a night. But first, CBS started the night off with the annual Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials at 8pm doing 9.65 million and a 2.0 18-49 rating, up five tenths in 18-49 from previous week's Criminal Minds repeat. At 9pm, a repeat of Criminal Minds did 6.95 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, as this series doesn't repeat as well anymore. At 10pm, a repeat of CSI did 7.72 million and a 1.5 18-49 rating.  ABC kicked off the night with a repeat of The Middle doing 5.51 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, which is below normal it seems. At 8:30pm a new episode of The Neighbors did 5.27 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, down four tenths in 18-49 from previous week when its lead-in was new, though. Such a good show now. At 9pm, a repeat of Modern Family did the best of the block with 6.14 million and a 2.2 18-49 rating, which is great for a repeat. Suburgatory followed at 9:30pm with a new episode doing 4.73 million and a 1.8 18-49 rating, down four tenths in 18-49 from previous week. At 10pm, Nashville was a repeat and did 3.01 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, as it doesn't repeat well. It should be over a 2 this week with a big episode. On Fox, a two-hour American Idol did a solid 15.78 million and a 5.5 18-49 rating, which is on par in 18-49 with previous week and STILL higher than The Voice from this fall. Still the reality king, folks. Onto NBC a new episode of Whitney started it off at 8pm with 3.64 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, and it couldn't even beat an ABC comedy repeat. At 8:30pm, a new Guys with Kids did 2.93 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, which outright lost to ABC's new comedy airing by a lot.  Law & Order: SVU followed at 9pm with a new airing as well that did 6.42 million and only a 1.7 18-49 rating, only getting by a tenth for a CBS competing drama repeat. Not good. At 10pm, a new Chicago Fire did 7.31 million and a 2.1 18-49 rating, which is solid and quietly doing well, but keep in mind it hasn't faced its CBS drama competition in many weeks. It will this week and let's see how it does then. The CW aired a new airing of its new hit Arrow and did 2.97 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, which is down two tenths from previous week in 18-49 for a series low. At 9pm, a new Supernatural did 2.12 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, on par in 18-49 week-to-week and holding on to 100% of its lead-in's ratings.

On Thursday, saw CBS and Fox battle but it was CBS with the win in both 18-49 and total viewers. Starting with ABC, a repeat of durable Shark Tank did 4.56 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, down only a tenth in 18-49 from previous week's all-new Last Resort. Not bad for a repeat in sweeps. At 9pm, Grey's Anatomy was new and did a solid 8.93 million and a 2.8 18-49 rating, but down two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. The surging Scandal at 10pm was all-new doing 8.09 million and a 2.7 18-49 rating, its second best performance ever. Look for a series high this Thursday with a BIG episode again. It might even build on its lead-in this week for the first time ever. Now the #1 10pm drama on TV! CBS had a night of new episodes and opened with a new The Big Bang Theory doing 17.76 million and a 5.4 18-49 rating, which is great but down a full point in 18-49 with its last new airing three weeks prior.  Though, this was the first time it faced Idol, so there is your reason. I knew it wouldn't be over a 6.0 18-49 again. A new Two and a Half Men was up next and benefited with 13.7 million and a 3.9 18-49 rating. At 9pm, a new showing of older-skewing Person of Interest followed with 15.71 million and a 3.2 18-49 rating, #1 in its slot for the second time. Still, should CBS opt for younger-skewing comedies next season, this series would be perfect on Tuesdays at 9 or 10 following older NCIS. They would make a better match. At 10pm, a new showing of freshman Elementary closed the night with 10.9 million and a 2.2 18-49 rating.  I don't think a post-Super Bowl episode will give this show much of a bump this Thursday and it will still lose to the more buzzy Scandal. Fox had a one-hour American Idol at 8 that did 13.8 million and a 4.5 18-49 rating, which was down seven tenths in 18-49 from previous week, as it got beat by Big Bang at 8. Glee had a new episode at 9 and did 5.48 million and a 2.1 18-49 rating, down five tenths in 18-49 from previous week and still couldn't hang on to #1 with a large lead-in. In fact, it barely beat NBC. NBC aired new episodes of its comedies, as the one-hour series finale of 30 Rock did just 4.88 million and a 1.8 18-49 rating, up four tenths in 18-49 from previous week when it was a half-hour. A season high but sums up the show's run well that it just was never a ratings hit. Parks & Recreation was preempted. At 9, The Office was new and did 4.45 million and a 2.1 18-49 rating, which is up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. A second new episode followed with just 3.97 million and a 1.9 18-49 rating, but still better than previous week's 1600 Penn by six tenths in 18-49, as that series was preempted. And it got worse at 10pm with the series premiere of new drama Do No Harm doing a horrible 3.12 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, as that was just a tenth better in 18-49 than previous week's Rock Center with Brian Williams which is on the move to Fridays. NBC is in for a long winter, indeed. The CW's big gun Vampire Diaries aired at 8 and did 2.56 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, which is great and on par in 18-49 with previous week. At 9, Beauty and the Beast was new and did 1.72 million and a 0.7 18-49 rating, losing nearly half of its lead-in's 18-49 rating but still on par in 18-49 with previous week.

Now, final numbers for Friday and Saturday are not available, as CBS edged ABC in 18-49 by a tenth in the preliminaries. CBS easily took the 8pm hour with a new Undercover Boss, besting a new Kitchen Nightmares on Fox by a lot and ABC opted for second with Last Man Standing and Malibu Country. ABC was first at 9pm by a lot with a new Shark Tank easily beating a new CSI: NY at 9. From 8-10pm NAACP Awards didn't do much for NBC, as Dateline was dead last at 10pm.  CBS was tied for first at 10pm with a new Blue Bloods and ABC 20/20. The Following encore at 9 for Fox was fourth place.
Saturday had Fox take the night with lead by an hour of Cops, while CBS aired 48 Hours at 8 because of the NFL Honors from 9-11pm, which didn't do much. NBC settled for repeats of American Ninja Warrior, Chicago Fire and Law & Order: SVU which battled for last with ABC's movie.

Tonight ABC Sunday is preempted as only AFV, is on with repeats from 7-9pm. Once Upon a Time and Revenge are preempted for Shark Tank & Modern Family repeats from 9-11pm. Look for a distant third place finish. NBC devotes the night to repeats of Betty White's Off Their Rockers from 7-9pm and an SNL special repeat from 9-11pm, which is looking like a fourth place finish. CBS is preempting 60 Minutes, The Good Wife & The Mentatlist for the Super Bowl and it will obviously take the night big time. A post-Super Bowl airing of Elementary airs at 10 and I bet it won't do great in terms of historical airings after the Super Bowl. And no bump on Thursday either. Maybe only a couple of tenths, if anything. Fox's animation block is all repeats from 7-10pm and should be a very distant second place in 18-49.

As for the week (week 19), I think any idiot can tell you that CBS will take the week in 18-49 and any other demo out there. Fox will be second, and ABC will likely be third in 18-49. NBC will be way behind and in fourth.  For total viewers, it should be CBS on top here of course, then likely Fox, ABC and NBC in that order.  As for the coming week (week 20), we have the first full week of February sweep! It's new episodes galore. CBS has the season premiere of Rules of Engagement Monday at 8:30pm and NBC has a two-hour season premiere of Smash from 9-11pm on Tuesday but ABC will counter with a special all-new The Bachelor in the same time period. I think the latter will win. Then we have the season premiere of Community on Thursday on NBC, along with the series premiere of The Job on CBS Friday and the season premiere of Touch on Fox. Episode of the week: Scandal on Thursday. Must watch episode that will do big ratings.


Week 19 How the Sitcoms Did

Last Sunday Sitcoms (counts for Week 18 -- Jan. 21-27)
  • The Simpsons (Fox) - A new episode at 8 did 5.23 million and a 2.3 18-49 rating, which is low but this is how it should do the rest of the season without the NFL as a lead-in.
  • The Cleveland Show (Fox) - A new episode at 7:30pm did only 2.57 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, lower than previous week's repeat. Ouch.
  • Bob's Burgers (Fox) 2 airings - At 8:30, a new episode did 4.12 million and 2.0 18-49 rating, not too bad. A repeat earlier in the night at 7 did 1.9 million and a 0.8 18-49 rating, which is down seven tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • Family Guy (Fox) - A new airing at 9 did 5.63 million and a 2.9 18-49 rating, the best of the block but once again not what it used to do.
  • American Dad! (Fox) - A 9:30pm airing was new and did 4.27 million and a 2.2 18-49 rating, which is OK.
Monday Sitcoms
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS) - A repeat at 8 did 5.78 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, which is OK but could be better. 
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS) - A special Monday repeat at 8:30pm did 8.16 million and a 2.4 18-49 rating, but that was down eight tenths in 18-49 from the previous week. 
  • 2 Broke Girls (CBS) - A repeat at 9 did 7.39 million and a 2.0 18-49 rating, also solid but could be better for a repeat on CBS Monday.
  • Mike & Molly (CBS) - A repeat at 9:30pm did 7.02 million and a 1.8 18-49 rating, did solid considering the lead-in was a 2.0 18-49 rtg. 
Tuesday Sitcoms
  • Raising Hope (Fox) 2 episodes - A new episode at 8 pulled 3.84 million and a 1.7 18-49 rating, which is on par in 18-49 with previous week.  A second all-new episode followed at 8:30pm with a lower 3.32 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, but four tenths higher in 18-49 than Ben & Kate from previous week.
  • New Girl (Fox) - A new showing at 9 did 4.74 million and a 2.6 18-49 rating, which is up four tenths in 18-49 from previous week. And up seven tenths in 18-49 since its series low two weeks ago. Good rebound.
  • Go On (NBC) - A new episode at 9 without The Voice as a lead-in, did only 3.95 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, on par in 18-49 from previous week but still a series low. Ouch. It was a good arc with guest star Piper Perabo, too.
  • Happy Endings (ABC) 2 episodes - A new episode at 9pm did 2.92 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating early beating the competing NBC series. A second episode did 2.85 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, beating the competing NBC series. I think this show would do better in a comedy block with four comedies. It is worth saving.
  • The Mindy Project (Fox) - A new episode at 9:30pm did 3.2 million and a 1.7 18-49 rating, finally going up from previous week as it went up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. I thought it would never move out of a 1.5.
  • The New Normal (NBC) - A new episode at 9:30pm did 3.08 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, as it went down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week for another new series low. Lost to the competing ABC comedy.
Wednesday Sitcoms
  • The Middle (ABC) - A repeat at 8 did 5.51 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, which is OK but could be better for a repeat.
  • Whitney (NBC) - Anew episode at 8 did 3.64 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, which is not good tying a repeat on ABC. Very bad.
  • The Neighbors (ABC) - A new showing of this new comedy did 5.27 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, down four tenths in 18-49 from previous week but that was when its lead-in was new. Still one of the surprises of the season in quality as it gets better and better.
  • Guys with Kids (NBC) - At 8:30pm, a new episode of this series did 2.93 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, which is terrible and crushed by ABC's competing freshman comedy.
  • Modern Family (ABC) - A repeat at 9 did 6.14 million and a 2.2 18-49 rating, #1 for the block as usual and solid repeat ratings.
  • Suburgatory (ABC) - A new episode at 9:30pm did 4.73 million and a 1.8 18-49 rating, which is down four tenths in 18-49 from previous week when its lead-in was new. Not bad, considering.
Thursday Sitcoms
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS) - At 8pm, a new episode did 17.76 million and a 5.4 18-49 rating, which is excellent but down a full point in 18-49 from its last airing three weeks ago that was a series high. It's facing Idol now, though.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS) - A new airing did 13.7 million and a 3.9 18-49 rating, which is #2 for the week in sitcoms (and scripted TV).
  • 30 Rock (NBC) one-hour episode - The series finale did 4.88 million and a 1.9 18-49 rating, which is not bad but still couldn't get over a 2. That sums up the series' run, as it just was never a mass hit.
  • 1600 Penn (NBC) - preempted.
  • The Office (NBC) 2 episodes - A new episode at 9 did 4.45 million and a 2.1 18-49 rating, which is up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. A special second episode did only 3.97 million and a 1.9 18-49 rating, which is much better than 1600 Penn but still not great.
  • Parks & Recreation (NBC) - preempted.
Friday Sitcoms
  • Last Man Standing (ABC) - A new episode did a prelim 6.89 million and a prelim 1.3 18-49 rating, which was good for second place in its timeslot. Solid, but could be a little younger.
  • Malibu Country (ABC) - A new airing of this new comedy did a prelim 5.95 million and a prelim 1.1 18-49 rating. also second place in its time period, but could be higher.
Saturday Sitcoms
  • Last Man Standing (ABC) - A special Saturday repeat did a prelim 2.7 million and a prelim 0.6 18-49 rating. Can't say much since this was a one-time thing.
Airing tonight (Sunday) are repeats of Fox Animation Domination comedies from 7-10pm and Modern Family repeats on ABC from 10-11pm.

Summing it up. The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, New Girl, Modern Family, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly were impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as 30 Rock, The Neighbors) or just plain terrible (such as Guys with Kids, The New Normal).
