October 6, 2015



Things are settling in on fall Mondays.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.

Demo Profile 2015 MON.05 Oct

NBC:  THE VOICE lost 0.2 to 3.2, but the big news for NBC was the stable performance of BLINDSPOT, down just 0.1 to 2.5.  That number is still bolstered by its lead-in (the show fell to 2.2 in its 2d half-hour), but is nevertheless enough to make the series a bona fide hit.

FOX:  GOTHAM slipped 0.1 to 1.5, but it’s hard to see how MINORITY REPORT will survive past FOX’s upcoming baseball preemptions, down another 0.2 to a deadly 0.7.

CBS:  THE BIG BANG THEORY was down 0.1 to 3.7 and LIFE IN PIECES was steady at 1.9, although those numbers may be shuffled a bit when finals are released this afternoon.  SCORPION gained 0.1 to 1.8, and NCIS LA held at 1.2.

ABC:  At the moment, DANCING WITH THE STARS is up 0.1 to 1.7, and CASTLE is up 0.1 to 1.3, but adjustments for MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL preemptions may change those this afternoon.

CW:  A night of season finales found PENN & TELLER: FOOL US, WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY and SIGNIFICANT MOTHER all steady at 0.4, 0.4 and 0.2.

CW’s fall season finally begins tonight with season premieres of THE FLASH and IZOMBIE.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
