Nobody does family events like Disney.

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 quasi-live, quasi-film clip version of THE LITTLE MERMAID dominated the night at 2.6.  That boosted EMERGENCE by 0.2 to 0.7, but the boost was very frontloaded, from 0.9 at 10PM to 0.6 half an hour later.

CBS:  Returning from a rerun week, NCIS was down 0.1 to 1.0, and both FBI (0.8) and NCIS: NEW ORLEANS (0.7) were steady.

NBC:  THE VOICE gained 0.1 to 1.3, while THIS IS US (1.3) and NEW AMSTERDAM (0.7) were both down 0.1.

FOX:  After 2 weeks off for the World Series, THE RESIDENT held at 0.7, and EMPIRE lost 0.1 to 0.7.

CW:  The young-skewing network may have been hurt by the ABC competition, as THE FLASH (0.4) and ARROW (0.2) were both down 0.1.

Tonight, THE MASKED SINGER returns from its World Series break with a 2-hour episode.

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.
