For Monday, November 2, 2015 (Posted on November 3, 2015)


The Peacock Network on Monday had singing. At 8P, ‘The Voice’ finished with an average 11.87 million viewers and a 7.6/11. Then at 10P, ‘Blindspot’ with a superb episode with guest star Lou Diamond Phillips, provided another clue to Jane’s mystery. Who know she could fly a hilo as it finished with an average million viewers and a 5.1/9.


The Alphabet Network on Monday had singing. At 8P, ‘Dancing With The Stars’ finished with an average 12.44 million viewers and an 8.3/12. Then at 10P, ‘Countdown to the CMA Awards: Country’s Greatest Crossover Hits With Robin Roberts’ finished with an average million viewers and a 3.6/6, replacing ‘Castle’ for some unknown reason beside promoting the CMA’s.

The Disney Sports Network had ‘Monday Night Football’ and that usually is the top contender for this evening when ‘The Big Bang Theory’ is no longer on this night (it moved to Thursday this week). This week, the Indianapolis Colts pushed the Carolina Panthers into overtime but lost by three. The Week #8 Colts/Panthers Monday Night Football game had an average of 12.404 million viewers and earned an 8.8 overnight rating on ESPN, down 27% from Washington/Cowboys last year (12.1) but up 16% from Seahawks/Rams in 2013 (7.6). Overnights peaked at a 10.4 from 930-945P, marking the sixth time in the past seven weeks that MNF has peaked before 10P ET. ESPN’s telecast had a 13.2 rating in Indianapolis and a 12.5 in Charlotte. The game was simulcast on local affiliates in both markets, earning an 18.1 on Indianapolis ABC affiliate WRTV and a 20.1 on Charlotte ABC affiliate WSOC. Greensboro, NC (20.2), Raleigh-Durham (14.6) and New Orleans (13.5) were the other markets in the top five.


The Tiffany Network had no singing or dancing…just a complete schedule of drama. At 8P, ‘Supergirl’, in an episode titled ‘Stronger Together’ became super with an episode that began to meet the challenges of this new presentation. It drew an average 8.86 million viewers and a 5.8/9. Then at 9P, ‘Scorpion’ with an episode titled ‘Crazy Train’ was intense as a runaway subway in LA (who knew) threatened to derail until team terrific got into the action. Very tight directing made this a thrilling episode which drew an average 9.40 million viewers and a 6.2/9. Then at 10, ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ finished with an average million viewers and a 5.4/9 as it won for the second straight week ‘Monday’s Battle @ 10P’.


The Animal Network of Broadcast began with comic book power and ended with syfy. At 8P, ‘Gotham’ was as good as this series gets on Monday with more action than imaginable. With an episode titled, ‘Rise of the Villains: Mommy’s Little Monster’, while misleading, had more action than any of the combined programs on this night. Terrific episode which finished with an average 4.30 million viewers and a 3.0/4. Then at 9P, ‘Minority Report’ finished with an average 1.77 million viewers and a 1.3/2.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t should get an award for innovation as it will never win the majority of viewers with this lineup. At 8P, ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ gave us another ‘Humorology’ performance, this time based around our heroine becoming a vegan which is bound to failure but showed us the less than brainy side of her love interest. Well, it drew 976,500 viewers and an 0.8/1, more commonly referred to as friends and family and very loyal Humorology lovers. At 9P, ‘Jane The Virgin’ died as well with an average 1.085 million viewers and an 0.8/1. Is this lineup really about girl power?

For The Record

ESPN finished #1 overall Monday with an average 11.55 million viewers. NBC finished as the #1 broadcast network on Monday with an average 10.57 million viewers and a 6.8/11. ABC finished #3 with an average 10.14 million viewers and a 6.7/11. CBS finished #4 with an average 8.86 million viewers and a 5.8/9. USA Network finished #5 with an average 3.248 million viewers. FOX finished #6 with an average 3.03 million viewers and a 2.1/3. VH1 finished #7 with an average 1.925 million viewers. Univision finished #8 with an average 1.70 million viewers and a 1.2/2. Telemundo finished #9 with an average 1.30 million viewers and a 1.0/2. The CW finished #10 with an average 1.03 million viewers and a 0.8/1.

If there is any doubt that fewer people are watching first run television programming on their television sets at the prescribed time, look no further than on Monday evening. Compared to 2014 on the same comparable days, networks this Monday were down a total of -4.339 million viewers from 38.163 million broadcast viewers last year. That’s an 11%+ drop in a single year. IF YOU ARE ADVERTISING ON BROADCAST TELEVISION, make sure you are negotiating your cost accordingly. The rate card is not sacrosanct. More importantly, you have to address the escaping flow of viewers to mobile/digital. Adjust your budgets accordingly. This is why a majority of the top brands are shifting their funds away from television toward digital/mobile.

Today In TV History
On this date in 1975, ‘Good Morning America’ premiered on ABC-TV. With host David Hartman, and despite debuting without a single advertiser, within a few years GMA would overtake NBC’s storied ‘Today’ show for the morning ratings crown.

Mobile Research
Only 8% said they didn’t want to receive marketing, while each respondent cited a preferred way of discovering new products. More than one-third of those surveyed said they preferred to get email from brands on their smartphones. http://bit.ly/1WtSmsc
