For Monday, October 12, 2015 (Posted on October 13, 2015)

NBC #1 Broadcast Network Monday as CBS' 'The Big Bang Theory' top program.

ESPN #1 Monday as CBS’ ‘The Big Bang Theory’ top program.


ESPN

The Disney Sports Network had Pro Football on Monday. At 8P, ‘Monday Night Football’ finished with a season-low 8.5 overnight household rating for its game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and San Diego Chargers, peaking with a 10.1 in the final 15 minutes (1130P). The game scored a 35.9 rating in Pittsburgh on ESPN and ABC affiliate WTAE. It also did a combined 33.9 in San Diego on ESPN and KFMB.

NBC

The Peacock Network finished as the #1 Broadcast Network Monday in one of the most competitive nights of television as it edged ABC by a song and a tattooed lady. As Pro Football was on one cable channel and NLCS MLB Baseball was one another, and the season premiere ‘Fargo’ on cable as well, all of which ratings will be posted when available. At 8P, ‘The Voice’ finished with an average 11.96 million viewers and a 7.9 rating/12 share. Then at 10P, ‘Blindspot’ finished with an average 8.45 million viewers and a 5.5/9. It was tied for the #1 program in the broadcast network’s ‘Battle @ 10P’ with NCIS: Los Angeles’.

ABC

The Alphabet Network ran it same powerful lineup on Monday and finished behind 30 Rock. At 8P, ‘Dancing With The Stars’ finished with an average 11.64 million viewers and a 7.8/12, as dancing beat singing on this Monday. At 10P, ‘Castle’ which has lost much of it magic with the two-stars-split-is-a-mystery arc, finished badly with an average 6.78 million viewers and a 4.5/8. With some of the snappy dialog, which made this a fan favorite, is back, the separation of Kate and Rick isn’t working. Once the power of ‘The Battle @ 10P on Monday’ is not working with the two apart. Either this is fixed quickly or the fan base will walk away. Or is that what the suits at Walt’s World want?

CBS

The Tiffany Network has a unique problem on Monday night. At 8P, it has the #1 comedy on television as ‘The Big Bang Theory’ finished with an average 14.96 million viewers and a 9.7/15. But at 830P, the new comedy, ‘Life In Pieces’ is finding it difficult to follow the king as it finished with an average 7.84 million viewers and a 4.9/7, going from 1st to 3rd within an hour. At 9P, ‘Scorpion’ finished with an average 9.40 million viewers and a 6.2/9. At 10P, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ finished with an average 8.45 million viewers and a 5.2/9, finished tied for #1 among broadcast network programming in ‘The Battle @ 10’ on Monday.

TBS

Ted’s Baseball System had a glorious Monday as it presented the final two games of a quadruple header. Game 3 of the St. Louis Cardinals/Chicago Cubs National League Division Series drew an average 5.784 million viewers and a 3.8 overnight rating Monday evening, up 171% from Giants/Nationals on MLB Network last year (1.4). The 3.8 is the highest of the series and ties the highest mark for the N.L. playoffs thus far. The Cubs’ win drew a 27.7 rating in St. Louis, the market’s highest Division Series rating since Padres/Cardinals Game 4 on FOX in 2006. It had a 22.3 rating in Chicago, surpassing last week’s Cubs/Pirates Wild Card Game as the top MLB telecast in the market since the White Sox clinched the 2005 World Series.

Beginning at 937P, The Los Angeles Dodgers/New York Mets ‘NLDS Game #3’ had the Mets’ blowout win which delivered an average 3.960 million viewers and a 10.9 rating in New York, the market’s highest for a Mets game since 2012. Ratings in Los Angeles were not available.

FOX

The Animal Network of Broadcast is having trouble finding a running mate for its opening program. At 8P, ‘Gotham’ continues to be a fan favorite as Michael Chiklas made his debut in the cast and finished with an average 4.17 million viewers and a 3.0/5. On Monday, it still had the magic. But at 9P, the freshman entry, ‘Minority Report’ is slipping badly as it finished with an average 2.05 million viewers and a 1.6/2, a drop of nearly 2 million viewers in an hour. Not good, Minions.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t pulled off one of the finest moments in television history Monday. At 8P, the series premiere of the critically acclaimed comedy ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ exploded onto the small screen and presented one of the finest first 13 minutes in the history of television. It finished with an average 900,000 viewers and an 0.8/1 as sampling was very small on a network starving for a hit. However, a star was born as Rachel Bloom was presented to the world, and magic happened for anyone who ever was in a musical, likes musical comedies, has any musical liking, liked Humorology in Madtown or really wants to witness some of the finest production values ever to hit the television screen. For those who missed it, this was a MUST SEE ON DEMAND TV episode. The big question is, can they keep this up? Absolutely spectacular! Then at 9P, the second season premiere of ‘Jane The Virgin’ finished with an average 1.06 million viewers and an 0.8/1. This network now has two critically acclaimed programs on this night. More people have to see it.

For The Record

NBC finished as the #1 broadcast network on Monday with an average 10.66 million viewers and a 7.1/11. ABC finished with an average 10.27 million viewers and a 6.7/11. CBS finished with an average 9.60 million viewers and a 6.2/10. TBS finished with an average 4.872 million viewers and a 3.9 HH Rating. FOX finished with an average 3.13 million viewers and a 2.3/3. Univision finished with an average 1.700 million viewers and a 1.2/2. Telemundo finished with an average 1.300 viewers and a 0.9/1. The CW finished with an average 999,000 viewers and a 0.8/1.

Today In TV History

U.S. Adults Major Media Daily Consumption
remote-ratings-placeholder
Television Viewing Still Leads
While there has been much talk about the impending death of television, the fact is that people do invest a considerable amount of team on a daily basis watching television. While dropping slightly from the previous year, the average American adult still watches 4 hours and 11 minutes of television each day. That can mean watching it live and/or DVR or ON DEMAND. That number is down 11 minutes since last year. Mobile is #2, as the average American adult spends 2 hours, 54 minutes spent on mobile. While the average adult uses their mobile devices throughout the day and night, it is for shorter periods. So accumulatively it is less than television. However, this total is up 17 minutes from last year and it will continue to rise, especially as the screens increase in size. The desktop/laptop is #3 with the average American adult spending 2 hours and 12 minutes on these devices. That is down by 2 minutes from the previous year.

The average American adult spend exactly 12 hours a day with major media consumption daily.

Surprising to some is that #4 is radio. The average American adult spends 1 hour 27 minutes daily listening to the radio. Obviously much of that is done during drive time in the morning and in the evening drive times. Regardless, it is a considerable amount of time.

The time spent on print is another matter. #5 is magazine. The average American adult spends 17 minutes a day reading magazines. However, that does not boast well for the fact that ‘Nobody Reads The Newspaper Anymore’ as the average American spends just 13 minutes a day reading the newspaper. To be perfectly clear, this study conducted by eMarketer does not include TV, radio and/or print digested on digital/mobile.
