I was going to wait until the finals were out, but this seems significant.  A repeat of TBBT, 7.10 The Discovery Disapation,  on Thursday finished the night as the number one show in both demo and viewers.  Currently, it brought in a 2.0, the only show to break a 2.0.  Second was a tie between Hell's Kitchen and Last Comic Standing at 1.6.  In terms of viewers, TBBT led with 8.69 million, in second was Mom, with 6.45 Million, and third was Two and a Half Men, with 6.24 Million.  Interestingly, Mom aired behind TBBT last night, just as it will while TBBT is on Monday's this fall.  Last night it retained 75% of TBBT audience.  For the year, The Millers only retained an averaged of 60% from TBBT.  This could bode well for Mom, this fall.  As a reference, there were six new shows running last night.

 

ETA:  Nothing really changed with the finals.  The top three demos stayed the same.  TBBT was up 30,000 viewers, and Mom and Two and A Half Men drop about 7-10 thousand viewers.

Week 37 Live + 7, 02 June, 2014

 

Based on Week 34 ratings.

 

TBBT had their final episode of the season and of the May sweeps, 7.24 The Status Quo Combustion. It was the most watched season final in the shows history. TBBT  was in first place for total demo was with a 7.4 , in second was Modern Familywith a 5.2 and in third was The Blacklist with a 4.6  In demo lift first place was  TBBT with a 2.5, with Modern Family and The Blacklist tying for second with a 2.0.  

In total viewers,  TBBT pulled in 22.59 million to finish in first,  NCIS was in second with  21.04 million,  and in third was NCIS:LA with 17.79 million.  In terms of lift, first was TBBT with 5.86 million, The Blacklist was in second, with 5.85 million and in third was Modern Family  with 4.76 million.

Last week TBBT beat The Blacklist for highest lift for the first time this year (when they both had new shows in the same week), and it continued with that this week. Second, TBBT continued beating NCIS in the live + 7.

I put the following in the comments section last week:

By getting to 20 million in Live + 7 this week, TBBT will finish the season crossing the 20 million viewer threshold every week of the season in Live + 7, the only show to accomplish that. With minor changes in the totals, TBBT will finish ahead of both Sunday Night Football and NCIS in Live + 7 for the year in total viewers.

That statement was an expectation of the way the ratings had been going all year, the numbers this week confirmed the statement.

Well, this brings us to the end of the ratings season. There will continue to be bits and pieces here, the three piece end of year wrap up being the biggest. But, for the rest, there won't be anything, unless something interesting happens. For the rest, I'll see you in September, in the Season 8 forum. Thank you so much for reading this thread this year.

Weekly Rankings and Notes for 05 June, 2014.  

 

 

Something interesting (at least to me) came up this week.    TBBT, with a repeat, brought in a 2.0 demo, was second for the entire week.   The only show to beat it was Americas's Got Talent, with a 3.0.  Four of the top eight shows (I'll get to the other two in the top ten in a minute), were premiering for their seasons.  The other three, besides TBBT,  were new episodes of series that premiered last week.   So, for the top eight, seven shows were new and TBBT beat six of them.  

 

As for the other two, Chuck Lorre is very happy.   Mom and Two and A Half Men finished ninth and tenth, also with repeats.   So, out of the top 15 shows, there were three repeats, all of them from Chuck Lorre productions.   

 

I'm going to throw one more thing in here.  There were some people who warned that renewing TBBT for three years could be a problem.  After all Glee was renewed for two seasons and its demo rating dropped to the low ones to high zeros.  This ignores just how big the show is right now.   Television viewing dropped 11% this year (this is for broadcast television only.  Viewing on other platforms (computer, tablet, phone, etc), from other distributors (netflx, Hulu, etc) has increased).  Many show dropped 15-25%, indicating that these shows fell more than overall viewing.  

 

TBBT dropped just 4% this year (demo only, total viewers actually went up), indicating that TBBT actually grew, in relation to overall television viewing.  At their current demo,  (6.2) TBBT could lose a quarter of their audience for the next threeyears, and it would still have a 2.6 rating, which would make it a top 20 show for THIS year.   If we limit losses to just the 11% per year, the demo after the third year would be 4.3, which would make it a top 5 show THIS year.    So, while rating don't necessarily correlate to quality.  The chances are it will still be a top 10 show at the end of it's three year extension.

While I finish up the Season 7 Ratings Wrap-up, here's this bit of information. For the week of 6/30-7-6, TBBT placed THREE shows (ALL REPEATS) in the top 10, in both Demo and viewers. In Demo it was fifth, with a 1.8, seventh, with a 1.7 and tenth, with a 1.5. The other seven shows in the top 10 were first run.

In viewers, it was, again, fifth, seventh, and tenth for the week. Although a few other repeats, like NCIS, snuck in there also.

Interesting Tidbits from the ratings this week.

 

Last night, with a total of 15 shows, eight of them new, TBBT scored a 2.1 demo, with 8.3 million viewers.  It was higher in Demo than everything except Big Brother, which earned a 2.3 and it was the leader in viewers.  The second highest show, for viewers, was the show that aired right after TBBT, Mom, with 6.75 million.   

 

That 2.1 by TBBT placed it fourth this week.   The only shows that beat it were Big Brother on Wednesday (2.2), Thursday 2.3), and The NFL Football game on Sunday (2.8 ).   There were 35 new shows this week and 12 of those were scripted.  TBBT was the top scripted show  and beat all the other reality shows, except for Big Brother.  

 

Last night, TBS showed four TBBT, and  they scored a 1.0. 0.9, 0.9 and a 0.8.   On Broadcast last night (CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, and CW), CBS four shows that scored a 1.2 or better (the only network with shows above a 1.0).  There were no other shows, last night on Broadcast, that beat the 1.0 or 0.9 demos.  One other show, would have beat the 0.8.    There were five half hours of TBBT on TV last night (in the US), those five half hours beat everything on broadcast TV, except for one show.
