The Sked: Sunday Network Scorecard 3.31.2019


Note the errors on the charts below:  ABC aired a 3-hour AMERICAN IDOL rather than SHARK TANK, and BOB’S BURGERS was a rerun.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary live+same day 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.

ABC:  AMERICA’S FUNNIEST HOME VIDEOS aired its first new episode in 3 weeks and was steady at 0.9.  The 3-hour AMERICAN IDOL held last week’s 2-hour 1.2.

CBS:  An NCAA TOURNAMENT overrun pushed the primetime schedule, which will be subject to adjustment.  Currently, 60 MINUTES is steady at 1.6, GOD FRIENDED ME is up 0.2 to 1.1, NCIS: LA is steady at 0.9, and MADAM SECRETARY is down 0.1 to 0.5.
