The Sked: Tuesday Network Scorecard 10.30.2018


A solid night for ABC’s sitcoms.

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:  THE CONNERS seems to have found its footing, up 0.1 to 1.8, and THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT gained 0.2 to 1.3.  BLACK-ISH (1.1) and SPLITTING UP TOGETHER (0.9) were also up 0.2.  However, THE ROOKIE lost 0.1 to 0.8.

NBC:  THE VOICE (1.6) and THIS IS US (2.1) were steady.  NEW AMSTERDAM slipped 0.1 to 1.3.

FOX:  After a World Series break, THE GIFTED remained at 0.6, while LETHAL WEAPON was down 0.1 to a new low 0.6.

CW:  THE FLASH (0.6) and BLACK LIGHTNING (0.3) were each down 0.1.

CBS:  NCIS (1.3) and NCIS: NEW ORLEANS (0.9) were each up 0.1, and FBI was steady at 1.0. 

As is its custom, CW will take Halloween night off, since much of its target audience won’t be watching TV tonight.

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

CABLE RATINGS: Come back this afternoon for detailed demographic ratings for top cable programs from this day.
