Summer Week 8 Sitcom Ratings; New Sitcoms On TV This Summer

We're in the dog days of summer, 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 8 (July 15-21) How the Network Sitcoms Did

Last Sunday Sitcoms (counts for week of July 8-14)
  • The Simpsons (Fox) 2 airings - A summer repeat at 8pm did 2.82 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, which is up down tenths in 18-49 from previous week. A 7:30pm repeat leading in did 2.17 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating, but up two tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • The Cleveland Show (Fox) - A repeat at 7pm did only 1.87 million and a 0.8 18-49 rating, again up one tenth in 18-49 with previous week.
  • Bob's Burgers (Fox) - An encore airing at 8:30pm did 2.38 million and a 1.0 18-49 rating, down three tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • Family Guy (Fox) - A repeat at 9 posted 3.4 million and a 1.5 18-49 rating, back down two tenths in 18-49 from previous week.
  • American Dad! (Fox) - A repeat at 9:30pm did 3.1 million and a 1.4 18-49 rating, which is back down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week.
Monday Sitcoms
  • How I Met Your Mother (CBS) - A repeat at 8pm did 4.17 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, down again one tenth in 18-49 from previous week.
  • Raising Hope (Fox) 2 airings - A repeat at 8pm did 1.83 million and a 0.6 18-49 rating, on par in 18-49 with previous week. The 8:30pm repeat did 1.58 million and a 0.6 18-49 rating, also on par in 18-49 with previous week.
  • Mike & Molly (CBS) 2 airings - A repeat at 8:30pm did 4.33 million and a 1.1 18-49 rating, down a tenth in 18-49 from previous week's 2 Broke Girls repeat in the time period. The regular 9:30pm encore did 5.3 million and a 1.3 18-49 rating, up a tenth in 18-49 week-to-week.
  • 2 Broke Girls (CBS) - A repeat at 9pm did 4.86 million and a 1.2 18-49 rating, down one tenth in 18-49 from previous week.
  • New Girl (Fox) - A repeat at 9 did only 1.29 million and just a 0.6 18-49 rating, up a tenth in 18-49 from previous week. It doesn't repeat well for an anchor at all.
  • The Mindy Project (Fox) - A repeat on Fox did 1.18 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating at 9:30pm, down one tenth in 18-49 from previous week.
Tuesday Sitcoms
  • None.
Wednesday Sitcoms
  • The Middle (ABC) - A summer repeat did 3.23 million and a 0.7 18-49 rating, on par in 18-49 with previous week.
  • Suburgatory (ABC) - A repeat at 8:30pm did 2.3 million and a 0.5 18-49 rating, down two tenths in 18-49 from previous week's Family Tools finale.
  • Modern Family (ABC) - At 9pm, a summer repeat did 2.65 million and a 0.8 rating, down one tenth in 18-49 from previous week. It hasn't repeated that well the last few weeks it seems.
  • The Neighbors (ABC) - A summer repeat did 2.09 million and a 0.7 18-49 rating at 9:30pm, on par in 18-49 with previous week. Good exposure for the fall when it moves to Fridays.
Thursday Sitcoms
  • The Big Bang Theory (CBS) - A repeat at 8 did 7.23 million and a 1.7 rating, down three tenths in 18-49 from previous week but a clear leader in sitcoms for the week.
  • Two and a Half Men (CBS) - A repeat at 8:30pm did 6.16 million and a 1.5 18-49 rating, down a tenth 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. Repeats of The Big Bang Theory & Two and a Half Men was impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as repeats of 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly) or just plain old terrible (such as repeats of New Girl and The Mindy Project).
