Summer Week 3 Sitcom Ratings; New Sitcoms On TV This Summer

Summer has started but there are still sitcom airings, new and repeats. We will be back with our normal weekly ratings 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! Here are our summer ratings:

Summer Week 3 (June 10-16) How the Network Sitcoms Did

Last Sunday Sitcoms (counts for week of June 3-9)
  • The Simpsons (Fox) - A summer repeat at 8pm did 2.4 million and a 1.01 18-49 rating, which is down about five tenths 18-49 from previous week.
  • The Cleveland Show (Fox) - A repeat at 7pm did only 1.58 million and a 0.67 18-49 rating, but that is just about on par in 18-49 with previous week.
  • Bob's Burgers (Fox) - An encore airing at 8:30pm did 2.13 million and a 0.94 18-49 rating, off about four tenths in 18-49 week-to-week.
  • Family Guy (Fox) 2 airings - A repeat at 9 posted 2.89 million and a 1.33 18-49 rating, down four tenths in 18-49 from previous week. A second repeat at 9:30pm followed with 2.79 million and a 1.28 18-49 rating, that is down about a half a point in 18-49 from previous week. NBA Finals clearly affected the Fox comedy encores.
  • American Dad! (Fox) - A repeat at 7:30pm did 1.91 million and a 0.80 18-49 rating, down just a little over a tenth in 18-49 from previous week.
Monday Sitcoms
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS) - A repeat at 8 did 3.91 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating, up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • Raising Hope (Fox) - A repeat at 8pm did 2.08 million and a 0.7 18-49 rating, back down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week.
  • The Goodwin Games (Fox) - A brand new episode at 8:30pm did only 1.54 million and a 0.6 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49.
  • 2 Broke Girls (CBS) - A repeat did 4.53 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • New Girl (Fox) - A repeat at 9 did 1.31 million and just a 0.6 18-49 rating, but again on par in 18-49 with previous week. It doesn't repeat well for an anchor, though.
  • Mike & Molly (CBS) 2 airings - 4.66 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating for a repeat, up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week.  A repeat earlier in the night at 8:30pm did 4.06 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating.
  • Anger Management (Fox) - A new episode on Fox, did 1.71 million and a 0.7 18-49 rating at 9:30pm, on par in 18-49 with previous week's first ever airing on Fox.
Tuesday Sitcoms
  • None.
Wednesday Sitcoms
  • The Middle (ABC) - A summer repeat did 4.45 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating, once again on par in 18-49 with previous week. Steady as can be.
  • Family Tools (ABC) - A new episode at 8:30pm did 3.67 million and a 0.9 18-49 rating, also on par in 18-49 with previous week's series low.
  • Modern Family (ABC) - At 9pm, a summer repeat did 4.22 million and a 1.2 rating, down two tenths in 18-49 week-to-week.
  • How To Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) (ABC) - A new episode at 9:30pm did 4.06 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, again down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week for a series low.
Thursday Sitcoms
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS) - A repeat at 8 did 8.62 million and a 2.1 18-49 rating, down two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. Should stay above a 2 all summer.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS) - A repeat at 8:30pm did 6.34 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating, which is down three tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • Save Me (NBC) 2 episodes - A repeat at 8 did 2.33 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating. A new episode followed with just 2.15 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating, down two tenths in 18-49 from previous week. That's all the episodes NBC will be airing.
  • The Office (NBC) - A repeat at 9 did just 1.59 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating, again down a tenth in 18-49 week-to-week. 
  • Parks and Recreation (NBC) - A repeat at 9:30pm did 1.54 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating, again down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week and this time it didn't build from its lead-in.
Friday Sitcoms
  • None.
Saturday Sitcoms
  • None.
Airing tonight (Sunday) are repeats of Fox Animation Domination from 7-10pm.

Summing it up. Repeats of The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men, were impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as repeats of Modern Family, The Middle) or just plain old terrible (such as  repeats of New Girl and new airings of The Goodwin Games, Save Me).



Feeling the repeat blues? Look for original sitcoms on TV this summer. Some highlights include: Mondays at 8:30pm on Fox will be original episodes of The Goodwin Games at 8:30pm. ABC has original episodes of Family Tools on Wednesdays at 8:30pm and How To Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life) on Wednesdays at 9:30pm through the end of June.

BET will return with the second half of the season of The Game on Tuesday, July 2 at 10pm. TBS airs Sullivan & Son Thursdays at 10, with week two this Thursday.
