MacGyver Ratings

Ratings: MacGyver Rises, Hawaii Five-0 Draws Friday's Biggest Audience

CBS’ MacGyver this Friday drew 7 million total viewers and a 1.1 rating, rising two tenths in the demo from last week’s low (while dipping to its smallest audience yet). Leading out of that, Hawaii Five-0 (9 mil/1.1) tick-tick-ticked down in both measures, yet (with Blue Bloods in rerun mode) drew the night’s largest audience.

Over on ABC, Last Man Standing (6.6 mil/1.1) dipped a tenth, while Dr. Ken (4.6 mil/0.9) and an eventful Shark Tank (5.8 mil/1.3) — in which Shark bites-to-date broke the $100 million mark — each rose a tenth, with the latter topping the night in the demo.

NBC’s rock-steady Grimm (4 mil/0.8) actually added a few eyeballs. Emerald City (2.3 mil/0.6) marked a new audience low while steady in the demo.

Fox’s Rosewood (2.6 mil/0.6) and Sleepy Hollow (1.76 mil/0.5) were steady in the demo, though the latter inched down to another new audience low.

The CW’s Vampire Diaries (1.07 mil/0.4) and Reign (610K/0.2) were steady in the demo, though the latter inched down to a new audience low.

    Sleepy Hollow …… :)

  2. KLS says:

    I think that we can officially say that Sleepy Hollow’s revamping didn’t work.

    • herman1959 says:

      Yup. Against my better judgement, I came back to give the show a chance. The first six episodes weren’t bad, and at the end of Episode 7 it felt like they had drawn a line under Abigail and I was sort of OK with it. But, last night, I couldn’t make it through the episode. I turned it off before the half-way mark. Goodbye Sleepyheads … I tried.

    • delorb says:

      LOL. I bet you they get a season 5. Just on spite alone.

    I’m beginning to find the bickering bromance between Steve and Danny on H5-0 increasingly annoying, and it takes up way too much of the show. Danny whines and complains about everything, making his character less enjoyable to me. Still love the show, however, and hope to see another, less argumentative season.

    • cosmoman11 says:

      I agree. It kind of makes your glad that Danny is out every 4th episode.

    • KLS says:

      Some people still like it, but I find it extremely annoying and fast forward or mute it whenever they are alone together. It’s stopped me from watching the show a few times through the years.

  4. Kevin Tran says:

    What are the chances MacGyver gets renewed for a second season by CBS? BTW, I apologize for all the mean things I’ve said and I don’t like when someone tries to bullied me.

  5. Mike Jones says:

    Mitch, just curious to see what you think. It seems Friday nights are relevant again. For years it use to be a graveyard for shows. Don’t get me wrong still nothing compared Sunday-Thursday nights.

    • Chris says:

      Friday’s have stayed relatively steady while every other day during the week has driopped. No longer just the graveyard. Especially for cbs.

    Rock-steady-yet-cancelled Grimm… I still don’t understand that decision.

    • Iris says:

      Steadily and very fractional Grimm on NBC, a network that counts only two dramas and one comedy with fractional average. Grimm is the only non-freshman among them.
      No hate for the show at all but this is a rational decision. On ABC or FOX, it might have had a chance.

  7. Lola says:

    FYI- you know Riverdale is sad when a show on its last legs is beating it on a Friday. But that’s none of my business. You better not CW. But of course they will-see Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.

    • delorb says:

      The guy who plays Archie looks too old! I know he says, [side-eye] that he’s only 19, but he looks to be about 30.

      • KLS says:

        Most of the characters are supposed to be 15 or so. KJ Apa (at 19) is one of the youngest cast members. The CW is known for casting older actors.

  8. MacGyver in Amsterdam a shame the didn’t filmed in Amsterdam but in some fake village in usa.

  9. M says:

    Wish people had given or would give Emerald City a chance. I’m really enjoying it.

  10. Hurley says:

    I have been trying to find online MacGyver’s jacket but nothing! Could someone help me please? :(

  11. Dennis says:

    Poor CW. I often wonder if merging The WB and UPN was even a good idea…ahhh those ratings!!

  12. kmw says:

    Poor Rosewood and Sleepy Hollow. Staying even every week wont save either of them. Good for MacGyver for rising a bit

  13. Ninamags says:

    What a fantastic H5O episode!!!

    I love the Steve/Danny dynamic. Honestly if they weren’t bickering, what would they be talking about? It’s obviously a distraction from the more serious aspects of the show. They were bickering in order to not have to deal with the “reality” of their situation.

    It’s what they do. I love it.
