Out of interest what episode has the most ratings from the whole series so far?

Depends on how you want to measure.   The following are what I have.  Prior to season 5, Live + 7 was not released except occasionally.  However, when it was, the numbers didn't approach those live + 7 numbers in later years.  Note the asterisks.  The Deception Verification was the second half of a two episode premiere.    That show had "The Hofstadter Insufficiency as it's lead in, instead of the local programming it normally has as a lead-in.   Those numbers without the asterisks, are the highest number starting cold at 8:00 PM.  

Live + Same Day 18-49 Demo:      6.4                   January 10, 2013  The Bakersfield Expedition  (Viewers 20.00 million)

Live + 7        18-49 Demo                8.3                   January 10, 2013  The Bakersfield Expedition  (Viewers  23.81 million)

Live + 7        18-49 Demo*              8.6                   September 26,2013 (8:30)  The Deception Verification (Live + Same Day demo 6.1)

Again, it was the only repeat airing the whole night, out of thirteen shows and was up against two series finales, and one season finale.  

Out of the thirteen shows, it was fourth in demo, and sixth in viewers.    

Finals

TBBT was even in Demo and share with the overnights.  It picked up 50,000 viewers.   It stayed  fourth in demo, and sixth in viewers.

  3. Wheel of Fortune                                   6.3
  4. Jeopardy                                                  5.9

  9. Family Feud                Weekend             3.2
  10. Live with Kelly and Michael                   3.1 

 

Top ten in 25-54 Women:

          Show                                             25-54 Women Rating

  1. Family Feud                                              3.5     
  2. TBBT                                                           3.4
  3. Judge Judy                                                 2.9
  4. Law and Order:SVU                                 2.9
  5. TBBT                            Weekend              2.4
  6. Modern Family                                         2.2
  7. Wheel of Fortune                                     2.0
  8. Jeopardy                                                    1.8
  9. Modern Family            Weekend             1.8
  10. Live with Kelly and Micheal                     1.6

 

I've gotten the question as to why the 25-54 rating.   For daytime shows, the women 25-54 is the more important ratings.  As you can see, TBBT still does rather well with this demo.   There is a show called Weekend Adventure.  It is a group of nature programs broadcast during the day on weekends for kids.  I've pulled it as it is not late Afternoon/early evening programming.

Week 35 Households, Top 25, Overnights and Demo Breakouts for 20 May, 2016

As the season is over for TBBT, I'm going to make a bit of a change to the reports this week.  They will be put up later and will include all the early numbers in one post.   There will not be comparisons to previous weeks.  

CBS ran a repeat of 9.11 The Opening Night Excitation.  It had a 5.7 with a 10 share (5.7/10)in households.   In demo, it had a 1.7, with a 7 share and 8.45 million viewers.  

For households, Grey's Anatomy was in first with a 6.1/11.  In second was TBBT with a 5.7/10, and in third was Mom, with a 5.3/9.

In the top 25 markets, Grey's Anatomy was number one with a 2.4.  Number two was the Blacklist with 1.5 and Mom was third with a 1.4.

Number one for the night, in demo, was the season finale of Grey's Anatomy, with a 2.3.  TBBT as tied with Mom for second with a 1.7.

For viewers, TBBT was first with 8.45 million viewers, in second was Grey's Anatomy with 8.12 million viewers. In third was Mom, with 8.00 million viewers. 

 In the 18-34 demo, Grey's Anatomy was in first  with a 1.9.  There was a tie for second, at 1.0 between TBBT and Mom. 

In the 25-54 demo, Grey's Anatomy was first with a 2.7  and in second,  was TBBT with a 2.6.  Finally, in third was Mom, with a 2.5.

I want to point out that TBBT was running a repeat and the three shows on the list above (Grey's Anatomy, Mom, and the Blacklist) were running the season finale. And speaking of TBBT repeats, I have a post I will be putting up about how TBBT repeats did this year, and how they compare to the first run shows this season.  

The finals will be up later, when I'm able to get  them.

TBBT will, for the second straight year, run at least as many repeats as it does new shows.  Last year CBS ran 32 in-season repeats.  This year, there are now 23, with one more scheduled for next week, the traditional end of the winter season.   Since we don't get DVR viewing for repeats, I will be using Live + Same Day ratings through this whole post.  

So, how did the repeats of TBBT do?  First, there were 101 different shows on the five broadcast networks this year.   For all the broadcast shows, the average demo rating is 1.42 this year.  I don't have the average number of viewers for broadcast shows, (I'll get it an put it in here) but I do have individual viewer numbers for this year.

For all TBBT repeats, the average demo was 1.63 and with an average of 7.76 million viewers.    It pulled in  a 3.2 demo for the Thanksgiving evening repeat, with over 12 million viewers.    Only two show averaged a 3.0 this year, and only three shows averaged over 12 million viewers (Including new TBBT).  I know that a single episode is not the same as an average for a season.  But remember, were talking about repeats here.  In addition, TBBT repeats never fell below a 1.0 this year. 

If we think of repeats as a separate show, that 1.63 demo makes it a top 25 show at 22nd.   Supergirl was 21st with a 1.68 and Law and Order:SVU was 23rd, with a 1.62.  In terms of viewers, the 7.76 million makes it a top 20 show, in 19th.  In 18th was Mom, with 7.90 million viewers and in 20th was Supergirl, with 7.69.  Remember, we are comparing TBBT repeats with first run episodes of the other shows.  

Compare the ratings the repeats pulled in, compared to the other CBS comedies:

       TBBT repeats                    1.63 demo                 7.76 million viewers

  • Life in Pieces                  1.99 demo                 8.63 million viewers
  • Mom                                1.68 demo                 7.90 million viewers
  • Two Broke Girls              1.61 demo                 6.42 million veiwers
  • Mike and Molly               1.55 demo                 7.26 million viewers
  • The Odd Couple              1.50 demo                7.24 million viewers

The top comedies on the other networks were:

ABC  Modern Family                2.58 demo                 7.97 million viewers

FOX  Brooklyn Nine-nine         1.21 demo                 2.72 million viewers

NBC Superstore                        1.48 demo                 5.08 million viewers

Again, remember, it's TBBT repeats, and first run episodes of those other shows.   

It's amazing, really, how similar the averages of "Supergirl" and repeats of TBBT are.   CBS could have run repeats of TBBT in place of "Supergirl", got basically the same ratings, at a much lower cost.  Which is why you've seen CBS adding TBBT repeats in places where they cancelled a show (Angel from Hell), or they needed a half hour comedy (A couple of the Wednesday shows).   This, of course ignores the "fatigue" of repeating repeats(yes, I know what I said :icon_razz:).  I'm actually surprised CBS has run as many as they have the last two years.

Week 35 Final Ratings For Friday, May 20, 2016; for broadcasts, 19 May, 2016

In the finals, the only changes I normally get are for demo and for viewers.   In this case, none of the top three in demo changed.  For viewers, TBBT increased by 180,000 viewers to 8.63 million viewers.  in second was Grey's Anatomy was up 70,000 viewers to 8.19 million. In third was Mom, was up 140,000 viewers to 8.14 million viewers. 

So, for the night, TBBT repeat had the highest number of viewers.

@Tensor, can I ask you a question? Is it just my impression or the gap in Demo between Empire and TBBT has been decreasing  a lot during the second half of the season?

It has.  TBBT has been between 3.0 and 3.5 since daylight savings time started, and every week, it has added a 2.0 for it's live + 7 demo.   Empire debut in the spring (on March 30) with a 4.8 and it's lost a point to the upper threes (except this last week it was at 4.1).  Most of it's Live + 7 has been in the upper ones (1.8-1.9, with a 2.0 in there).  So, its been more of Empire dropping. In the fall, Empire debut with a 6.7 demo, and fell two points to a 4.5 for its final fall show.  

Here's an interesting fact, Empire, on the Wednesday before the US Thanksgiving Holiday had a 3.2 demo with a new episode.   TBBT, the next day, on the Thanksgiving holiday, had a 3.2 demo, WITH A REPEAT of 9.01 The Matrimonial Momentum.

So television viewing figures have been pretty much dropping on a whole? Modern Family seems to have seen a major drop as well.

Still it must be seen as a positive to CBS that a show that has been going for 9 seasons appears to be holding up pretty well compared to the competition some of which is much younger and perhaps seen as more fresh.

Could the lack of drop be because of a loyal fan base.  I don't think you can consider the show pure comedy, I think people sort of get invested in these characters lives, they wanted to see Lenny get married, when Sheldon and Amy got physical, and are looking forward to the Shamy marriage, maybe even want to see them all have kids, houses and Nobels.

Yeah that could be a contributing factor. But even still I can recall some pretty popular shows with a large fanbase have viewing figures fall off a cliff after so many seasons so they deserve some credit.

Overall Broadcast Television viewing has been dropping at around 11%, per year, since around 2000.   It is a positive that although viewership has been dropping, it's ratings, relative to other current shows, is still higher than all but one show, and higher than all comedies.  

 

Part of the reason is TBBT fan base is spread out (and probably loyal).  For instance, if we go back to last week, Empire had a 3.7 demo, with about 4.7 million demo viewers.   TBBT had a 3.4 with about 4.3 million demo viewers.    What we don't normally get, is the break out for the other demos.   18-34, 25-54, 55+.    What information I have gotten is a large part of the 18-49 number for Empire is because it has a strong 18-34 demo.  TBBT has more viewers in the 35-49 part of the demo, which is why it almost catches it, in the 18-49 demo, behind by only three tenths.  

Now, lets look at the actual viewers.     In demo, Empire had 4.7 million and TBBT had 4.3 million.   But, in total viewers, TBBT had 14.7 million versus 9.8 million for Empire.   For Empire, 5.1 million came from outside of the 18-49 demo.   For TBBT 10.4 million came from outside of the 18-49 demo.   While TBBT has slightly less viewers than Empire, in the 18-49 demo, it doubles the number of viewers in demos of 49+.   

Those older viewers are more inclined to watch TV in the traditional way.  At a specific time, on a specific night of the week, when it is broadcast.  This helps TBBT, in the Live + Same Day numbers, but should hurt them in Live + 7.   The big demo for Empire, the 18-34, watch more TV in less traditional ways.  Streaming, or recording it on a DVR and then watching it when they have the time or inclination.   That hurts the Live + Same Day numbers, but should help them in Live + 7.  

However, TBBT also leads almost every week in demo point increase, and viewer increase on Live + 7, which means TBBT also has a large base in those younger demos that record and watch.  In fact, TBBT gains more demo points and more viewers than any other show, generally.    It was the number one gainer in demo and viewers this past Live + 7.  It finished second to Empire in total demo, but beat it be over five million total viewers.   And it finished second to NCIS in total viewers, but beat it by 2.2 total demo points.

Is there any indication that the extensive syndication of TBBT helps in the ratings for new episodes?  It seems to me that most shows in syndication do not have new episodes showing as well.  I'm thinking that new viewers may find the show in syndication first since it's everywhere, then migrate to watching the new episodes.

You could make a case for it back in season four, five, and six as the reason for, first, it not falling very far, with the move to Thursday.   Second for increasing in season five and six.   Not so much since then.  The first I don't have data for, but in it's second year in syndication it was near number one.  TBBT was close to number one in syndication (and it was number one, in syndication, in it's third year, the same year (season six) TBBT finished as the number one non-sports show on any network).  During season seven and eight, it dropped to around third, and most of this year it's been in fifth.   While it has dropped to fifth, the shows above it are all game shows or Judge Judy, with new content almost every night.    TBBT is much higher than any of the rerun syndicated network series--as a matter of fact most weeks, the weekend edition of TBBT beats the weekday edition of Modern Family.  But it is still  down from its first two years of syndication.

  10. Live with Kelly and Michael                   3.3 

 

Top ten in 25-54 Women:

          Show                                             25-54 Women Rating

  1. TBBT                                                           3.6     
  2. Family Feud                                              3.3
  3. Judge Judy                                                 3.2

  9. Dr Phil                                                        1.6
  10. Modern Family        Weekend                 1.5

 

I've gotten the question as to why the 25-54 rating.   For daytime shows, the women 25-54 is the more important ratings.  As you can see, TBBT still does rather well with this demo.   There is a show called Weekend Adventure.  It is a group of nature programs broadcast during the day on weekends for kids.  I've pulled it as it is not late Afternoon/early evening programming.

Week 36 Households, Top 25, Overnights and Demo Breakouts for 27 May, 2016

As the is over for TBBT, I'm going to make a bit of a change to the reports this week.  They will be put up later and will include all the early numbers in one post.   There will not be comparisons to previous weeks.  

The demo breakouts, households, and Top 25 markets are still not up.  If those become available, I will put those up when I get them.  

CBS ran a repeat of 9.13 The Empathy Optimization.  It had a 5.7 with a 10 share (5.7/10)in households.   In demo, it had a 1.4, with a 6 share and 7.21 million viewers.  

Number one for the night, in demo, was TBBT repeat with that 1.4.    There was a tie for second between Mom and Life In Pieces for second with a 1.0, both repeats.

For viewers, TBBT was first with 7.21 million viewers, in second was Mom with 5.29 million viewers. In third was Life in Pieces, with 5.16 million viewers. 

Johnny Galecki and Mayim Bialik were on the  "Red Nose Day" Charity special.  It had a 0.6 demo, a 2 share, and 2.16 million viewers.  A repeat of Modern Family pulled in a 0.7 demo, with a 3 share, with 2.97 million viewers.  

The finals will be up later, when I'm able to get  them.

I will be doing a more extensive end of the year post, but the final full season averages for Live + Same Day were released today.   For entertainment programming, TBBT finished second with a 3.7.  The first place program was Empire, with a 4.4.  Two interesting notes.  First,  NCIS finished tied for tenth, with a 2.2 (see below) and second, TBBT repeats would have finished tied for 31st.

For viewers, TBBT again finished second, averaging 15,224,000 viewers per show.  However, in viewers, it finished second to NCIS, which averaged 16,609,000 viewers per show.    For viewers, Empire finished eighth, averaging 11,593,000 viewers per show.  TBBT repeats, averaging 7.760,000 viewers per show would have finished in the same place as it did for demo, tied for 31st.

If you include sports, or sports related programing, TBBT finished sixth in demo, but forth in viewers.
