SHOWBUZZDAILY’s Top 25 Tuesday Cable Originals (& Network Update): 4.21.2015


COMING SOON: In addition to our detailed demographic chart of the Top 25 cable originals, we will be adding a searchable list with even more cable originals, summarizing the most important demographics. Stay tuned for more details.

NETWORK UPDATE:  THE VOICE and UNDATEABLE each picked up 0.1 in final network numbers, as did AGENTS OF SHIELD, HELL’S KITCHEN and THE FLASH.  IZOMBIE was the only show to lose 0.1.

Ratings in key demos for the Top 25 original cable telecasts:


TNT’s NBA PLAYOFFS doubleheader led Tuesday cable at 1.73/1.42.  Discovery’s DEADLIEST CATCH was next, although it was down a substantial 0.28 from last week’s season premiere to 0.93.  Its lead-out DEADLIEST CATCH: CORNELIA was at 0.80.  At TLC, 19 KIDS AND COUNTING gained a tenth to 0.81, 7 LITTLE JOHNSTONS was at 0.39/0.37, roughly the same as last week’s 1-hour episode, and the night’s lead-in 19 KIDS AND COUNTING: RECOUNT was down 0.01 to 0.30 with 994K total viewers .  Comedy Central returned INSIDE AMY SCHUMER (already renewed for next season) to its air at 0.59, down 0.26 from last year’s season premiere, although that was in keeping with lead-in TOSH.0, which at 0.74 was up 0.07 from last week but down a big 0.25 from the parallel night last year.  On OWN, IF LIVING YOU IS WRONG was off a tick to 0.69.  Lifetime’s DANCE MOMS was up a tenth to 0.66, and KIM OF QUEENS gained 0.03 to 0.32.  REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW YORK lost a hundredth to 0.60, but the BEVERLY HILLS installment that served as lead-in was down 0.31 to 0.49 (a clip show or reunion?).  MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT (A&E) upticked to 0.49.  TBS’s sitcom YOUR FAMILY OR MINE rose by a tenth to 0.47.  On MTV, FINDING CARTER was stable, down a hundredth in 18-49s to 0.43, and down 0.04 in the F12-34 demo to 1.01.  BET’s KEYSHIA COLE: ALL IN was at 0.27, with 683K total viewers.  MAKE IT POP (Nick) held at 0.22, with 1.2M total viewers.  YOUNGER, which has just been renewed (the ratings may not be stellar, but it’s apparently accomplishing the rebranding that the network wanted), and which is still considered a TV Land show despite simultaneously airing all its episodic premieres on Nick At Night, continued by scoring 0.22 on the latter network (up 0.02) with 579K total viewers and 0.14 in TV Land (up 0.03) with 550K total viewers.  The demo split continues as well, with the results lopsided toward younger audiences on Nick At Nite (up 0.02 to 0.36) and toward older audiences on TV Land (up 0.02 to 0.23).
