So much for that FLASH crossover bounce for SUPERGIRL.

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.

Fasts Demo 2016 Apr MON.11


CBS:  Any momentum that SUPERGIRL might have carried from its big FLASH crossover faded with last week’s preemption, and the show lost all of its 0.4 bump, back down to a problematic 1.3. SCORPION was steady with its 1.6 from 2 weeks ago, and NCIS: LA was up 0.1 to 1.3.

ABC:  DANCING WITH THE STARS benefited from a night of Disney music, up 0.3 to 2.0.  CASTLE stayed at 1.1.

NBC:  THE VOICE fell 0.3 to 2.2, and then BLINDSPOT gained 0.1 to 1.4.

FOX:  The network also skipped last week, and GOTHAM and LUCIFER were each down 0.1 from 2 weeks ago to 1.2/1.1.

CW:  Don’t get too attached to the 0.4/0.5 for CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND and JANE THE VIRGIN, since a baseball preemption in Chicago means they’re likely to come down in final numbers.

Tonight NBC gives GAME OF SILENCE its now-customary post-VOICE preview slot, before the show arrives in its regular berth on Thursday at 10PM.  IZOMBIE ends its season with back-to-back episodes.

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