The Family Ratings

Ratings: The Family Ticks Up Again

ABC’s The Family this Sunday drew 3.2 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating, ticking up in both measures for a second consecutive week to mark a 4-week high in audience and tie its best Sunday demo number to date.

Bookending the bubble drama, Once Upon a Time (3.7 mil/1.1) and Quantico (3.6 mil/1.0) were steady.

Elsewhere in the ratings….

NBC | Little Big Shots (12.1 mil/2.0), The Carmichael Show (5.7 mil/1.2) and Crowded (4.3 mil/1.0) each gained in audience and added two tenths in the demo, with LBS dominating all of broadcast in both measures.

CBS | Madam Secretary (9.4 mil/1.1) ticked up a tenth. Elementary‘s first hour (6.3 mil/0.9) was on par with The Good Wife ‘s most recent demo delivery, while its second episode (5.8 mil/0.8) matched its most recent 10 pm outing.

FOX | Bordertown (1.2 mil/0.5), Cooper Barrett (1.1 mil/0.5), The Simpsons (2.5 mil/1.1) and Bob’s Burgers (2.3 mil/1.1) each rose a tenth, while Last Man on Earth (2.7 mil/1.1) was up two tenths from last week’s series lows.

    The Family is really good. If you wanted answers last night’s eppy was for you!! It just keeps getting better and better :-)

    Hey, other shows: the reason The Family is getting better ratings each week is that this show does something radical: it actually provides answers.

    I can only imagine how long a lot of shows would have dragged out the revelations that The Family has already gotten to (The Walking Dead would have probably taken four seasons)– but, as of last night, we now know answers to most of the original mystery at the heart of the show, yet the show still has a lot of tension and interesting character development to keep us watching.

    This is how you do it. Pay attention, other shows!

    The trouble with the second hour of Elementary is likely due to the fact it didn’t start until 10:30/9:30. CBS continues to screw their shows with sports interruptions. It is nice to see it continue to do relatively well on Sunday

    Cooper Barrett is really good, I wish more people watched.

  5. A. D. says:

    Crowded is hilarious and fresh…people need to watch!

    This show was hard enough to watch in the first place. Super depressing and messed up, but I quit watching when they showed the dog abuse scene. That was seriously messed up, and I don’t need to watch that for entertainment. I’m done with this show.

    I like The Family… it’s good entertainment to make the time pass by for the main event of the night for me… Quantico!

    People on the East Coast should know that most of the time, the CBS shows start in their regular time periods West of them.

    Wasn’t The Family’s best demo number the premiere at a 1.5?

  10. Wow! I have been searching for this info for a while.
    Thank you you writing this post. :)|
