Ratings: CSI Returns Down; Family Guy, Madam Sec'y Slip; Revenge Ticks Up

CSI Season 15 Ratings

CBS’ CSI returned from two successive weeks of preemptions to 8.6 million total viewers and a 1.2 demo rating, down 3 and 14 percent from its last fresh outing.

Opening the Eye’s night — and pending adjustments due to slight NFL overrun — Madam Secretary (12.6 mil/1.4) was down 5 and 22 percent, while The Good Wife (10.7 mil/1.4) was steady.


ABC | Once Upon a Time (7.4 mil/2.5) ticked down one tenth and Resurrection (4.5 mil/1.2) slipped 10 percent and two tenths, but Revenge (5.2 mil/1.3) rose 10 percent and a tenth.

NBC | Sunday Night Football (17.3 mil/6.2) is up a tick from last week’s fast nationals.

FOX | Leading out of football, The Simpsons‘ crossover with Futurama (6.6 mil/2.9) popped 57 and 45 percent, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine (4 mil/1.8) rose 18 percent and a tenth. Family Guy (3.6 mil/1.8) dropped 23 and 28 percent from its last original, yet still boosted Mulaney (2 mil/0.9) by 25 and 29 percent.

  1. Great for Revenge, As the season 4 continues, they giving us better episodes than the season 3 we saw last year. And it’s good for them, ’cause now the ratings are improving a little bit.

      I agree.. Revenge is really good this season with this episode being pretty nail-biting. This show is the guilty pleasure i am glad i didn’t quit when it went stray in season 2(b)

    the CSI show last night on CBS I saw 2 weeks ago on CTV, maybe others had also seen it and that is why it was down in ratings

    • JeffDJ says:

      I was going to mention that too. I don’t recall if it was on CBS that week as well or preempted. So I didn’t watch last night either, but do ratings in Canada even matter in the States?

    CBS better end CSI after 15 seasons even though the move to Sundays is a very bad idea because of football overruns.

    Yay for Revenge !

  5. Jax says:

    It’s past time to retire CSI. I’m sorry, but that pic is sadly indicative of what this once groundbreaking show has become. Death with dignity I fear is no longer an option. Remember the good ole days via syndication.
