In the latest TV show ratings, The CW’s All American returned from a five-week break to 706,000 total viewers (its second smallest audience of the season) and a 0.2 demo rating, down a tenth from its last fresh episode to match its series low.
Leading out of that, Black Lightning‘s planted Painkiller spinoff pilot dropped a few eyeballs (with 396K) while steady in the demo (with a 0.1.).
ABC | American Idol: Paula’s Return (5.2 mil/0.7) ticked up week-to-week, tying The Voice for the Monday demo win.
NBC | The Voice (5.6 mil/0.7) ticked down week-to-week but still delivered Monday’s largest audience; Debris (2.7 mil/0.4) was steady.
FOX | America’s Most Wanted (1.5 mil/0.3) slipped 25 percent with its revival finale.
CBS | The Neighborhood (4.8 mil/0.6) and Bob Hearts Abishola (4.6 mil/0.5) both hit and tied series lows. On the yet-to-be-renewed front, All Rise (3.7 mil/0.4) hit an audience low while steady in the demo, and Bull (5 mil/0.4) was steady all around.
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. Warning: Contents may be hot!
