The Animal Network of Broadcast had Jack. And that is all any network needs to take an evening. Beginning at 8P, ‘MasterChef’ drew 5.09 million viewers and a 3.9/7. Then at 9P there was overnight growth of 15% for ’24: Live Another Day’ as it drew 5.66 million viewers and a 4.5/7. The two, on average, beat the year-ago combination of sitcoms ‘Raising Hope’, ‘The Goodwin Games’, ‘New Girl’ and ‘Anger Management’ (only ‘The Goodwin Games’ was original) by a whopping 292%. Say what you want about ’24’ but it provides the fastest hour on television, filled with action and twists and turns. Jack Bauer is part of the fabric of American television and FOX should do everything it can to bring it back next year, just as it did this season. It is a Must See TV ON DEMAND program.
The Alphabet Network did lead at 8P with ‘The Bachelorette’ and drew 6.10 million viewers and a 4.7 rating/8 share. That was on par with the year-ago evening. But the summer drama ‘Mistresses’ however, dropped considerably at 10P with 3.53 million viewers and a third-place 2.7/ 5 (with retention out of ‘The Bachelorette’ of only 57%).
Guess what The Tiffany Network did? It had another evening with reruns beginning at 8P with ‘2 Broke Girls’ drew 4.72 million viewers and a 3.1/5. At 830P, a rerun of ‘Mom’ drew 4.79 million viewers and a 3.1/5. At 9P, the first of two rerun episodes of ‘Mike & Molly’ drew 5.62 million viewers as the top program on The Tiffany Network for the evening while at 930P, the second rerun drew 5.25 million viewers (two episodes: avg. 3.7/ 6). At 10P, an edition of ’48 Hours’ finished first in its time slot and drew 4.11 million viewers and a 3.2/6.
Over at the Peacock Network at 8P, ‘Last Comic Standing’ finished with 3.15 million viewers and a 2.4/4. At 9P, ‘American Ninja Warrior’ slipped by 10% week-to-week with 4.54 million viewers and a 2.7/ 5. The year-to-year loss of 62% for the network is a reflection of the final performance show of the season for ‘The Voice’ one year earlier.
The Little Network That Couldn’t aired two episodes (original and repeat) of ‘Whose Line is it Anyway?’, at 8P it drew 1.73 million viewers and at 830P, a rerun did 1.81 million viewers, both averaging 1.3 rating and a 2 share of the available audience. At 9P, a rerun of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ drew 810,000 viewers and a 0.6/1, which should not be returning next season. Year-to-year, ‘Whose Line’ increased by 117% from two episodes of failed game show ‘Oh Sit!’ (0.6/ 1 on 6/17/13).
NBC’s ‘The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ beginning with a week in Orlando pulled a 2.7/7, which outdelivered competing David Letterman on CBS (2.0/5) and Jimmy Kimmel LIVE on ABC (1.7/ 4) by 35% and 59%, respectively. But not to get too excited over at 30 Rock, one year earlier, ‘The Tonight Show with Jay Leno’ scored a similar 2.9/7. And he did it in Burbank. At 1235A, ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ pulled a (1.3/ 4), which beat competing Craig Ferguson on CBS (1.0/3) and ABC’s ‘Nightline’ (1.0/3) by 30%. At 135A, NBC’s ‘Carson Daly’ had an 0.7/3.
For The Record
FOX pulled off another victory on Monday with 5.38 million viewers and a 4.2 rating and a 7 share of the available audience. ABC came in second with 5.24 million viewers and a 4.0/7. CBS finished third with 4.77 million viewers and a 3.3/5. NBC was next with 4.08 million viewers and a 2.6/4. Univision finished with 2.76 million viewers. The CW drew 1.29 million viewers and a 0.9/2. Telemundo came in with 0.7/1.
Today In TV History
On this day in 1941, WNBT-TV in New York City, NY, was granted the first construction permit to operate a commercial TV station in the U.S. Today it is called WNBC-TV (NBC-4). For a unique look behind early television and a nostalgic look at the 10th Anniversary of the station on April 30, 1949 and what television looked like back in the late 1940s, go to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wswTTxj8_ls. Notice Ben Grauer as he keeps looking down at his script. Idiot cards didn’t exist at that time and nobody could deal with the camera as they were used to just sitting there in a studio.
Facebook Post Interaction
The most popular hour for brands to post on Facebook is 12-1PM (EST) per the TrackMaven analysis, while the least popular hours are between 1A and 4AM. Interestingly, posts published “after hours” (between 5PM and 1AM) have the highest average interactions per hour, at 2.49. Separately, the study finds that weekends have the lowest posting frequency but the highest interaction rates, a finding not supported by earlier studies from Adobe and Socialbakers. Much as Socialbakers has found, though, TrackMaven’s analysis reveals that interaction rates are higher for brand posts that contain pictures.
