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 6 (July 1-7) How the Network Sitcoms Did

Last Sunday Sitcoms (counts for week of June 24-30)

  • New Girl (Fox) - A repeat at 9 did only 1.29 million and just a 0.5 18-49 rating, back down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. It doesn't repeat well for an anchor at all.

  • Modern Family (ABC) - At 9pm, a summer repeat did 2.96 million and a 0.8 rating, down three tenths in 18-49 week-to-week. Day before 4th of July doesn't help.

Thursday Sitcoms
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS) - It's the 4th of July and final ratings are not available yet for Thursday, so we will go off of preliminary ratings. A repeat at 8 did a prelim 5.41 million and a prelim 1.2 18-49 rating, down a preliminary nine tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS) - A repeat at 8:30pm did a prelim 4.22 million and a prelim 0.9 18-49 rating, which is down a preliminary four tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • The Office (NBC) - preempted. 
  • Parks and Recreation (NBC) - preempted.
Friday Sitcoms
  • None.
Saturday Sitcoms
  • None.
Airing tonight (Sunday) are repeats of Fox Animation Domination from 7-10pm.

Summing it up. Repeat of the Monday The Big Bang Theory was impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as repeats of 2 Broke Girls, How I Met Your Mother) or just plain old terrible (such as repeats of New Girl and new airing of The Goodwin Games).
