S.W.A.T. drew 3.3 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating, up 50 and 33 percent from last week and copping its biggest audience of the young season. Opening CBS’ night, a double pump of The Amazing Race averaged 3.75 mil and a 0.6 — pretty much on par with last week. (Read double-episode recap.)
Over on ABC, The Goldbergs (3.5 mil/0.6) and American Housewife (3 mil/0.5) both dipped, The Conners (3.7 mil/0.6) and black-ish (2.4 mil/0.4) were steady, and For Life (2 mil/0.5) rose a tenth from its season opener.
Elsewhere, NBC’s Women of Worth special did 1.6 mil/0.2, followed by the SNL Thanksgiving special’s 2.4 mil/0.5…. Part 3 of The CW’s airing of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life (520K/0.1, read recap) was on par with the previous two.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives.
