TV Ratings: Olympics dominate repeats and Valentine's Day programs

Fast National ratings for Friday, Feb. 14, 2014It's no surprise that the 2014 Winter Olympics dominated television on Friday, Feb. 14. With almost all other networks showing repeats or Charlie Brown specials, there wasn't much chance of toppling the Winter Games. Even new episodes of "Enlisted" and "Raising Hope" on FOX didn't stand much of chance.The Olympics dipped somewhat in viewers between Thursday and Friday, even with the highly anticipated men's figure-skating finals. An average of 19.1 million viewers tuned in to the NBC primetime broadcast.Still, that number dwarfed the nearest competition, a repeat of "Hawaii Five-0" on CBS at 9 p.m. Dismal numbers for new programming were represented by "Enlisted" (1.8 million viewers), "Raising Hope" (1.5 million) and "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" (0.86 million).Overall, NBC's 19.1 million viewers led to a 11.0 rating/19 share in households. CBS followed with 5.4 million viewers (3.5/6). ABC (4.3 million, 2.8/5), FOX (2.4 million, 1.5/3) and... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/02/tv-ratings-olympics-dominate-repeats-and-valentines-day-programs.html

TV ratings: ABC scores demo wins while CBS takes Friday

Fast National ratings for Friday, Jan. 17, 2014It was another solid Friday night for the usual suspects on ABC and CBS, with the triple whammy of "Undercover Boss," "Hawaii Five-0" and "Blue Bloods" snagging the night's most viewers, while ABC pulled wins in the 18-49 demographic with "Shark Tank" and "20/20." Unfortunately, the low debut for FOX's new comedy "Enlisted" wasn't a fluke, with 0.4 million viewers dropping out from premiere week -- which wouldn't actually that big of a drop if the number weren't so low in the first place. CBS won the night overall with an average 10.6 million viewers and a 6.6 rating/11 household share. ABC trailed behind with 6.3 million (4.2/7), while NBC nabbed 5.2 million (3.3/6), FOX got 4.5 million (2.7/5) and The CW trailed with 801,000 viewers and a 0.5/1.In the 18-49 demo, however, ABC pulled ahead with an average of 1.7 for the night, with CBS earning... http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/01/tv-ratings-abc-scores-demo-wins-while-cbs-takes-friday.html
