Week 22 TV Ratings and Analysis; How the Sitcoms Did

2012-13 Week 22 TV Ratings (first four nights, Mon-Thu): 

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

Week 22 (Feb. 18-24) Analysis: It's been a normal week so far but that changes tonight with The Oscars. Right now, through the first four nights, we see Fox with the edge so far over CBS in 18-49. But it won't hang on to first place after tonight after ABC's coverage of The Oscars. We don't have final Thursday network averages (we only have program averages), but we will project what is happening through the first four nights.  We can project CBS has the lead in HH/total viewers, while Fox is on top in adults 18-49. CBS is a close second place in 18-49, followed closely by ABC, then NBC is a very distant fourth. Fox is second in HH/viewers, followed by ABC. Then NBC is a distant fourth and it continues to be a long winter for them. It's basically similar to previous week. When the week is done, ABC will come back and take the week in 18-49. More on that later. As for last week, week 21, Fox took home first in adults 18-49 thanks just getting by CBS and ABC. CBS was a close second behind Fox only two tenths behind while ABC was only  a tenth behind CBS. NBC was way back there. Among total viewers, it was of course CBS on top easily over Fox and ABC. ABC was a close third (it tied Fox in HH rating) and NBC was way back behind in fourth.

Monday saw ABC tie CBS. Starting with ABC, a two-hour The Bachelor from 8-10pm did 9.26 million and a 3.0 18-49 rating, which is up another three tenths in 18-49 from previous week and another season high. This has been a solid season because we have seen the growth each week and I could tell this was going to happen after just 2-3 weeks. At 10pm, Castle was new with a big 2-part episode and part one did 9.85 million and a 2.3 18-49 rating, up three tenths in 18-49 from previous week for a season high. It might do even better tomorrow night for the conclusion. Great stuff. For NBC, they had a two-hour The Biggest Loser from 8-10pm doing 5.65 million and a 2.1 18-49 rating, which is back up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week's season low. At 10pm, week seven of new drama dud Deception didn't do much with 3.13 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, which was on par in 18-49 with previous week. CBS was all-new with its comedies, as a new How I Met Your Mother did 8.86 million and a 3.4 18-49 rating, which was up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. A new Rules of Engagement at 8:30pm did 8.19 million and a 2.9 18-49 rating, which is solid and up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. At 9pm, a new 2 Broke Girls followed with 10.25 million and a 3.5 18-49 rating, down another tenth in 18-49 from previous week and not nearly as strong as a CBS Monday anchor should be. Next, a new Mike & Molly did 10.33 million (building from its lead-in)  and a 3.2 18-49 rating, up two tenths in 18-49 week-to-week. A new Hawaii Five-0 at 10pm did 9.11 million and a 2.0 18-49 rating, which was down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week and was second place, like I thought it would be. Fox aired an all-new episode of Bones at 8 and it did 8.47 million and a 2.2 18-49 rating, which was on par in 18-49 with previous week. At 9pm, week five of new drama The Following at 9pm did 8.39 million and a 2.9 18-49 rating, which was back up five tenths in 18-49 from previous week's season low. A sigh of relief. The CW aired week six of The Carrie Diaries at 8 and did 1.08 million and a 0.4 18-49 rating, which is down a tenth in 18-49 from the previous week for a series low.  At 9, 90210 was new and did only 0.55 million and a 0.2 18-49 rating, down another tenth from previous week in 18-49 and a series low. This is horrible! If it's not canceled, then I have no idea what The CW is doing.

On Tuesday, it was CBS with the win as they beat second place ABC by a good margin. On CBS, NCIS was new and did 21.08 million and a 3.5 18-49 rating, which is solid. At 9pm, a new NCIS: Los Angeles did 16.27 million and a 2.7 18-49 rating, just getting by ABC for first place. At 10pm, the struggling Vegas did 9.52 million and a 1.5 18-49 rating, but actually that was good enough to win the hour...sad. Onto ABC, at 8pm week five of The Taste did 4.76 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating, up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. It will be moving to 9pm this week. At 9, ABC aired the special The Bachelor: Sean Tells All that did very well with 8.11 million and a 2.6 18-49 rating, as it was smart to air this on Tuesday. ABC will air the three-week event Celebrity Wife Swap at 8pm starting this week. The season premiere of Body of Proof aired at 10pm and did 6.75 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, which was not good in 18-49. I think it will be better once Dancing comes as a lead-in. NBC aired Betty White's Off Their Rockers from 8-9pm as the first half-hour did 4.59 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, which was up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week's repeat. Another new episode followed at 8:30pm and did 4.64 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating, up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. At 9pm, Go On was all-new but NBC wishes it wasn't airing as it only did 3.3 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating for series lows. At 9:30pm, it was more bad news as The New Normal did a horrible 2.8 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating. Ouch. At 10pm, it was just as bad with a new Smash doing 3.29 million and am embarrassing 0.9 18-49 rating. I bet they wished they had more Parenthood episodes now right? Fox aired comedies as a new Raising Hope at 8pm did 3.65 million and a 1.5 18-49 rating, which is a bit below what it could do. A repeat of New Girl followed at a special time of 8:30pm doing 2.7 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, up a tenth in 18-49 week-to-week. A new episode followed at 9pm and did a below normal 4.31 million and a 2.2 18-49 rating. At 9:30pm was a new episode of The Mindy Project that did an uneventful 3.05 million and a 1.6 18-49 rating. The CW aired a new Hart of Dixie and did just 1.37 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating. New series Cult premiered at 9 and was ignored with just 0.86 million and a 0.3 18-49 rating, ouch!

Wednesday of course means American Idol and it took 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 a new Survivor: Caramoan at 8 doing 9.32 million and a 2.4 18-49 rating, which is on par in 18-49 with previous week's 90-minute season premiere. Criminal Minds was new at 9 and did 10.69 million and a 2.6 18-49 rating, which is below normal. At 10pm, a new CSI did 10.65 million and a 2.3 18-49 rating, up four tenths in 18-49 from previous week, as it was up because it had a compatible lead-in.  ABC kicked off the night with a new The Middle doing 8.27 million and a 2.3 18-49 rating, which is back up four tenths in 18-49 from previous week's season low. At 8:30pm a new episode of The Neighbors did 6.34 million and a 1.9 18-49 rating, up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. At 9pm, a new Modern Family did the best of the block with 10.62 million and a 4.0 18-49 rating, which was up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. It has gone up slowly each week the past three weeks. Suburgatory followed at 9:30pm with a new episode doing 5.74 million and a 2.0 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. Perhaps it is better suited to air at 8:30pm. At 10pm, Nashville was preempted for A Special Edition of 20/20: Mad About OSCAR with Katie Couric doing 5.02 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, five tenths below in 18-49 from previous week's Nashville. On Fox, a two-hour American Idol did a solid 14.37 million and a 4.1 18-49 rating, but down two tenths in 18-49 from previous week as it keeps going down each week. Onto NBC a new episode of Whitney started it off at 8pm with 3.14 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. At 8:30pm, a new Guys with Kids did 2.83 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating, on par in 18-49 with previous week, tying a series low. Season finale for the latter is this week with Keshia Knight Pulliam guest starring!  Law & Order: SVU followed at 9pm with a new airing as well that did only 5.61 million and only a 1.6 18-49 rating, up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. At 10pm, a new Chicago Fire did 6.5 million and a 1.9 18-49 rating, which is solid and on par in 18-49 with previous week once again. It's not a hit, but it's consistent and doing well enough for NBC. The CW aired a new airing of its new hit Arrow and did 3.15 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, but down two tenths from previous week in 18-49. At 9pm, a new Supernatural did 2.1 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 week-to-week. 

On Thursday, saw Fox with the win thanks to an expanded Idol. Starting with ABC, week two of Zero Hour did 5.39 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, down three tenths in 18-49 from its series premiere. Not really a good show either. At 9pm, Grey's Anatomy was new and did a solid 8.75 million and a 3.1 18-49 rating, back up three tenths in 18-49 from previous week. An excellent season of storytelling, too. The surging Scandal at 10pm was all-new doing 7.68 million and a 2.7 18-49 rating, on par in 18-49 with previous week. The #1 series at 10pm on all of network TV, people! CBS had a night of new episodes and opened with a new The Big Bang Theory doing 17.62 million and a 5.6 18-49 rating, which is great and up tenth in 18-49 from previous week. No drastic ups and downs this week. A new Two and a Half Men was up next and benefited with 13.41 million and a 3.9 18-49 rating, also up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. At 9pm, a new showing of older-skewing Person of Interest followed with 14.22 million and a 2.9 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 week-to-week. 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 11.19 million and a 2.4 18-49 rating, up a tenth from previous week in 18-49. It is doing decent for 10pm, but still a waste to air it following the Super Bowl as it has gotten no bump. Fox had a two-hour American Idol from 8-10 that did 13.66 million and a 3.9 18-49 rating, which was up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week when it was one-hour. Finally went up. Glee was preempted. NBC aired new episodes of its comedies, as week three of Community did just 3.08 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week but still skewed young. Parks & Recreation was new at 8:30pm and did 3.07 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. I don't think this series can anchor a night at 9pm next season, if they go that route as a new episode also aired at 9pm and did 2.95 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating, six tenths lower in 18-49 than previous week's episode of The Office which was preempted. Not good news. At 9:30m a new 1600 Penn, which is doing horrible, did only 2.34 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating. It's time to pull it. At 10pm, NBC had a repeat of Law & Order: SVU doing 3.88 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, as that was up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. The CW's big gun Vampire Diaries aired at 8 and did 2.91 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, which is great and up three tenths in 18-49 from previous week topping both ABC and NBC. At 9, Beauty and the Beast was new and did 1.52 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating, losing more than half of its lead-in's 18-49 rating and on par in 18-49 with previous week. If they bring it back, it shouldn't be on Thursdays.

Now, final numbers for Friday and Saturday are not available, as ABC took Friday in 18-49 again. CBS returned Undercover Boss at 8, but still sneaked out a win.  Kitchen Nightmares was fourth for Fox as ABC's Last Man Standing and Malibu Country and NBC's Dateline battled.  ABC was back to first at 9pm by a lot with a new Shark Tank easily beating the season finale of CSI: NY at 9. From 8-10pm Dateline did OK for NBC, as Rock Center was last place at 10pm again.  CBS was tied for first at 10pm with a new Blue Bloods tying ABC 20/20. which focused on Robin Roberts' journey. Fox struggled badly with Touch at 9.
Saturday had Fox and ABC tie for the win on a very slow night. Fox took the 8pm hour with Cops, but struggled at 9 with a repeat of The Following, while CBS took 9pm with a special time period of 48 Hours. NBC settled for repeats of American Ninja Warrior, Chicago Fire and SNL which all struggled. The CBS special Vanity Fair's Hollywood was dead last at 10. ABC aired the Dreamgirls film from 8-11pm and was good enough to tie for the lead for the night.

Tonight ABC Sunday is all-new but AFV, Once Upon a Time and Revenge are preempted for the coverage of the Oscars hosted by Seth MacFarlane. Look for an easy first place finish and probably over a 12.0 in 18-49 for the awards itself. NBC devotes the night to Dateline at 7, repeats of Betty White's Off Their Rockers at 8, and an SNL special repeat from 9-11pm, which is a fourth place finish for sure. CBS has 60 Minutes at 7, followed by a new Amazing Race, which is strange to air against The Oscars. Then CBS has repeats of struggling The Good Wife & The Mentalist from 9-11pm. I'm thinking a distant second (or third) place finish for CBS. Fox's animation block is all repeats from 7-10pm and should be second (or third) place in 18-49.

As for the week (week 22), ABC will come back and and take the week in 18-49 with something like a 12.0 18-49 rating for the Oscars helping them. Maybe close to 40 million. Fox will be second, and CBS will be third in 18-49. NBC will be way behind and in fourth.  For total viewers, it should be ABC on top here as well, then CBS over Fox for second, and NBC in a distant fourth.  As for the coming week (week 23), ABC has the season premiere of Celebrity Wife Swap Tuesday at 8pm that should do solid and young. CBS has the series premiere of Golden Boy on Tuesday at 10, which could do OK. And February sweeps ends after Wednesday, so look for repeats to start Thursday for many shows. Next Sunday features the series premiere of Red Widow on ABC and the season premiere of Celebrity Apprentice on NBC, both from 9-11pm.


Week 22 How the Sitcoms Did

Last Sunday Sitcoms (counts for Week 21 -- Feb. 11-17)
  • The Simpsons (Fox) 2 airings - A new episode at 8 did 4.57 million and a 2.0 18-49 rating, which was on par with previous week in 18-49 and still below normal. A repeat at 7 did 2.21 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, down two tenths in 18-49 from previous week's Bob's Burgers repeat in the same time period.
  • The Cleveland Show (Fox) - A new showing at 7:30pm did only 2.63 million and a bad 1.1 18-49 rating, down three tenths in 18-49 from previous week. Not good.
  • Bob's Burgers (Fox) - At 8:30, a new episode did 3.93 million and 1.8 18-49 rating, nearly holding all of its lead-in's ratings and on par in 18-49 with previous week.
  • Family Guy (Fox) - A new airing at 9 did 4.87 million and a 2.4 18-49 rating, the best of the block but down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week when it faced the Grammys.
  • American Dad! (Fox) - A 9:30pm airing was new and did 4.15 million and a 1.9 18-49 rating, also down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week when it faced the Grammys. I guess the NBA All-Star game had more of an affect on these comedies than the Grammys.
Monday Sitcoms
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS) - A new episode at 8 did 8.86 million and a 3.4 18-49 rating, which was up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. Solid.
  • Rules of Engagement (CBS) - Week three at 8:30pm did 8.19 million and a 2.9 18-49 rating, solid and up a tenth in 18-49 from the previous week. 
  • 2 Broke Girls (CBS) - A new episode at 9 did 10.25 million and a 3.5 18-49 rating, as it was down another tenth in 18-49 from previous week. This has been one of the disappointments of the season, I think. I really thought it would easily be doing 4's right now without Dancing/Voice.
  • Mike & Molly (CBS) - A new episode at 9:30pm did 10.33 million and a 3.2 18-49 rating, which is solid and up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. It did better than its lead-in in total viewers and it was up in 18-49 over previous week despite its lead-in going down. This was the CBS winner of the night.
Tuesday Sitcoms
  • Raising Hope (Fox) - A new episode at 8 pulled 3.65 million and a 1.5 18-49 rating, which could be better.
  • New Girl (Fox) 2 airings - A new episode at 9 did 4.31 million and a below normal 2.2 18-49 rating. A special repeat at 8:30pm did 2.7 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week.
  • Go On (NBC) - A new episode did a series low 3.3 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, as this series has completely tanked.
  • The Mindy Project (Fox) - A new airing at 9:30pm did 3.05 and a 1.6 18-49 rating, yes low but this is about what it has done all season.
  • The New Normal (NBC) - A new episode at 9:30pm was clobbered with just 2.8 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, as now I don't think this comedy will be back next season.
Wednesday Sitcoms
  • The Middle (ABC) - A new episode at 8 did 8.27 million and a 2.3 18-49 rating, which is good and back up four tenths in 18-49 from previous week's strange season low.
  • Whitney (NBC) - A new episode at 8 did 3.14 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, which is down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. This show isn't worth bringing back anymore. No point.
  • The Neighbors (ABC) - A new showing of this new comedy did 6.34 million and a 1.9 18-49 rating, up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. It WILL be back next season folks, whether it's here or on Friday. It's doing well creatively, too.
  • Guys with Kids (NBC) - At 8:30pm, a new episode of this series did 2.83 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating, which is terrible and on par in 18-49 with previous week's series low. Can a mini Cosby Show reunion help this Wednesday, which is the season finale? We've watched it already and look for our review of the episode posting on Wednesday!
  • Modern Family (ABC) - A new episode at 9 did 10.62 million and a 4.0 18-49 rating, #1 for the block as usual and up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. Good sign of climbs the past few weeks.
  • Suburgatory (ABC) - A new episode at 9:30pm did 5.74 million and a 2.0 18-49 rating, which is down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. Such a good show but might be better suited for 8:30.
Thursday Sitcoms
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS) - At 8pm, a new episode did 17.62 million and a 5.6 18-49 rating, which is excellent and up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. I thought it would be back over a 6 again.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS) - A new airing did 13.41 million and a 3.9 18-49 rating, which is also up a tenth in 18-49 week-to-week.
  • Community (NBC) - Week three did not do well doing 3.08 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, which is down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. It needs to do better if it wants another season on NBC. Hello TBS or Comedy Central next season?
  • Parks & Recreation (NBC) 2 episodes - A new episode at 8:30pm did 3.07 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating, which is down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. Not good, but it got worse at 9pm when a special new episode did 2.95 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating, down six tenths in 18-49 from previous week's The Office in the same slot. Just not mass appealing.
  • The Office (NBC) - preempted.
  • 1600 Penn (NBC) - A new episode at 9:30pm did only 2.34 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating. So many comedy duds on NBC this week. This show doesn't even fit the tone of the other NBC Thursday comedies. Bad scheduling.
Friday Sitcoms
  • Last Man Standing (ABC) - A new episode did a prelim 6.01 million and a prelim 1.3 18-49 rating, which was down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week's preliminaries.
  • Malibu Country (ABC) - A new airing of this new comedy did a prelim 5.05 million and a prelim 1.1 18-49 rating, also down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week's prelim ratings.
Saturday Sitcoms
  • None.
Airing tonight (Sunday) are repeat episodes of Fox Animation Domination comedies from 7-10pm.

Summing it up. The Big Bang Theory, Modern Family, Two and a Half Men, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement were impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as Suburgatory, New Girl) or just plain terrible (such as all the comedies on NBC like The New Normal, Guys with Kids, 1600 Penn).
