Well the preliminary numbers were:
9:00 p.m. Amazing Race Viewers: 9.58 million (#2), A18-49: 2.7/ 7 (#3)

So the finals improved in both total viewers  to 9.69 and to a  2.9 in adults 18-49.  Not to bad (glad to see us nearly getting a 3.0 in the demo for that crappy time of the year).

That brings the average viewer total to 11.22 million viewers.

Now most long term comparisons of AR ratings use Season Long averages provided by the Hollywood reporter.

But I have been using (since season 10), the ones released weekly by Nielson Media research.

And while they are close (for this season ), I have some variances with seasons 10 and All Stars. 

Hollywood reporter shows a season average:
Season 10: as 11.5 million viewers.

While using Nielson's numbers averages to 11.17 million viewers

All Stars: as 10.1 million viewers

While using Nielson's numbers averages to 9.78 million viewers (and technically should actually be even lowered but they count the two hour block of episodes which I believe was Germany's episodes as one single episode (and it got the third lowest rating of the season).  If counted as two episodes the season average would actually come out to 9.72 million viewers.

So using Nielsons for this season and comparing to Hollywood reporters for the rest, We have drop to the 4th most watched season with a current average of 11.22 million viewers.

Season 7:  13.05
Season 6:  11.54
Season 10:  11.50
Season 12:  11.22
Season 5:  10.73
Season 2:  10.3
Season 11(All Stars):  10.1
Season 8 (Family Edition):  10.08
Season 9:  9.1
Season 3:  8.98
Season 1:  8.8
Season 4:  8.32

Now if Nielson's weekly final numbers are more accurate then we are still 3rd and ahead of Season 10, which they show an average of 11.17.

But no matter with the up coming schedule we shouldn't fall lower then position #4.  And for a show thats on its 12th cycle thats pretty amazing.

Well ratings were delayed this morning, but better late then never.

-Total Viewers:
CBS: 15.35 million, ABC: 12.85, NBC: 11.23, Fox: 5.79, CW: 790,000

-Adults 18-49:
ABC and CBS: 4.5 rating/11 share each, NBC: 4.4/11, Fox: 2.7/ 6, CW: 0.3/ 1

and for CBS broken down by the half hour.

CBS
7:00 p.m. NFL AFC Wild Card Game Viewers: 28.09 million (#1), A18-49: 9.4 rating/25 share (#1)
7:30 p.m. NFL/Post-Game/60 Minutes Viewers: 20.77 million (#1), A18-49: 6.0/15 (#1)
8:00 p.m. 60 Minutes Viewers: 17.86 million (#1), A18-49: 4.9/12 (#1)
8:30 p.m. 60 Minutes/Amazing Race 12 Viewers: 14.29 million (#1), A18-49: 4.4/10 (#2)
9:00 p.m. Amazing Race 12 Viewers: 11.54 million (#3), A18-49: 3.4/ 8 (#3)
9:30 p.m. Amazing Race 12/Cold Case Viewers: 10.95 million (#3), A18-49: 2.9/ 6 (#3)
10:00 p.m. Cold Case Viewers: 10.44 million (#3), A18-49: 2.5/ 6 (#3)
10:30 p.m. Cold Case/Shark R Viewers: 9.34 million (#3), A18-49: 2.2/ 6 (#3)

When the figure out real totals for each show.  I would expect that we scored slightly higher then 11.54 million viewers.  I think we will probably hold steady in the demo of 3.4.

For this Sunday, while Fox will have the Giants-Cowboys/Jessica Simpson-Tony Romo lovefest, CBS should still do well in the ratings.

60 Minutes is expected to have Brian McNamee, the guy who spilled the beans on Roger Clemens, to have a rebuttal interview and the Golden Globes Awards show will be no more than a press conference without any stars crossing the Writers Guild picket lines, so I expect TAR to do rather decently opposite the series premiere of the Sarah Connor Chronicles on Fox.

See this is what happens after beating Puddin last week.  I am late for the party.

Very pleased with the uptick in viewers and demo.

Yes, ratings are gradually on the up, last Sunday had TAR's highest average to date. BUT looking ahead to the finale on Sunday, Jan 20 doom looms.  Fox will have the NFC championship game on against TAR.  Last year, the NFC championship game was the third highest rated show of all shows during all of 2007, with an average audience four times that of the best TAR has ever done.  So look for a low number for the final Sunday.  TVGuide doesn't even promote the finale, just "leg 11"  So what do they know?

But hopefully CBS knows that TAR is up against a juggernaut on the 20th and will still go ahead with TAR13.

Kogs, I certainly hope that it will be Seahawks vs. Giants. However, Green Bay vs. Dallas is much more likely and that will be of interest to most NFL fans, way more so than Chicago vs. New Orleans last year. If I were CBS I would have taken a week off and gone to Jan. 27 for the finale, but I seem to remember that there is something else already in that time slot.

It is what it is. You can't change things now. Just plow ahead and hope the TiVO ratings will be high for TAR (yes, the networks have TiVO ratings, too).

A point or two about TAR's ratings averages.  The Nielsen weekly ratings don't really include much of the DVR time-shifted viewing any more than the overnights do; which is a problem trying to use those weekly ratings to compute the season's average.

DVR penitration is now estimated to be 20 % of the audience.  At the beginning of the season, CBS was giving some number folding in the DVR-within-3-days viewers, but that doesn't help figure out the averages because the weekly numbers come out on Tuesday, which hasn;t already been three days.

CBS did mention an average audience for TAR appropaching 12 million at one point earlier this season (I think it was Thanksgiving weeked, if I recall correctly. The AP list of the Top 20 shows this week also included the placing of the listed shows for the season to date, and TAR was 24th (keep in mind that the listing would include shows that started their season after TAR did, and include shows that ended their seasons before TAR will,

From what I've seen t TAR 12 average numbers (with the DVR viewers included should be placing it only behind season 7 in the season average for viewers. Looking at it a different way, TAR has finished in the top 30 every week, has finished in the top 20 in 7 of the 9 weeks, and finished in the top 10 twice, IIRC. On that alone, TAR is having one of its best seasons ratings-wise.

Welcome to the forum famous theschnauzers

Let me add another big time welcome.   :waves:

Years and races ago when I was a newbie, two posters, at TWOP and RFF didn't make fun of me when I first posted on TWoP and here, theschnauzers and Puddin.  For them to post back to back is something else.  A sincere thanks to the both of you.

Back on Topic.  Thanks a bunch to mswoods' post and the others.

This season is doing great like season 10, but the football overruns have a lot to do to it.

No matter have you feel about Boston Rob and Amber, Race 7 is still the gold standard.

And, Chip McAllister from Race 5  is still the Franchise. His and Kim's trial's and tribulations against Colin and Christie were great TV and saved the Amazing Race franchise from cancellation.  I'm still disappointed that they were not selected for All-Stars.

On that alone, TAR is having one of its best seasons ratings-wise.



The ratings I post (and what is now common) is any viewing in that day.  So it already does include some DVR usage.  Then they have the all important live plus 3 data, and that has been released occasionally throughout the season and TAR usually doesn't show up in it (for either top twenty overall, or ten largest gainers for DVR useage).  And that is the important one (since ads rates are set by it).  And its really difficult to gauge without seeing how it fairs (Some do very well, but many are still below ten percent).  And thats why I tend not to mention it.  So far I have seen nothing (though I haven't checked since late December, boring TV period that it is), to give us any indication on how this particular show does (on a typical night) with DVR's.  It certainly isn't on the high end (that I can say), whether its middle of the road or below average, I honestly don't know.

The also know that in years past that the VCR also held additional viewers but they were never able to accurate track that data in a reliable fashion.

Studios will also list live plus 7, ad really those numbers on a practical level don't matter.  There was one show that I was following that got a 34% increase on the live plus 7.  Unfortunately most of that was after the 3 days, where typically advertisers don't give a damn and won't consider for ad rates.

 :yess:

Our Show is awesome.   :lol3: :tup:

Earlier in the evening on CBS was veteran 60 Minutes (Viewers: #2, 9.49 million; A18-49: #3, 1.9/ 5) and The Amazing Race 12 (Viewers: #2, 11.63 million; A18-49: #3, 3.8/ 9) from 7-9 p.m. Worth noting for The Amazing Race was growth of 2.14 million viewers and 100 percent in the demo out of 60 Minutes.


Thats with absolutely no overrun.   :jam: :tup:

This is the best non overrun episode that wasn't in I don't know how long (I will check later today).

I was hoping that the lonesome dove sequel would help, did it?

Comanche Moon (CBS)
9:00 p.m. Viewers: 17.08 million (#1), A18-49: 3.6/ 8 (#3)
9:30 p.m. Viewers: 16.13 million (#1), A18-49: 3.4/ 8 (#3)
10:00 p.m. Viewers: 15.10 million (#1), A18-49: 3.2/ 8 (#2)
10:30 p.m. Viewers: 14.71 million (#1), A18-49: 3.1/ 8 (#2)

Yes, it did.

And CBS for the night.
-Total Viewers:
Fox: 21.86 million, CBS: 13.16, ABC: 10.79, NBC: 4.75, CW: 1.03

-Adults 18-49:
Fox: 9.0 rating/21 share, ABC: 3.9/ 9, CBS: 3.1/ 7, NBC: 1.4/ 3, CW: 0.4/ 1

That's fantastic news, mswood. I thought the fact that the Golden Globes Awards Announcements would draw low and they did. Despite the fact that Fox had the much-hyped Sarah Connor Chronicles, fans stayed with CBS.

Next week, CBS will be helped with the ratings now the Cowboys are not in the NFC Championship. This season has built as it's gone along and fans have enjoyed the cast.

Re: AR #12 Ratings

Awesome that it even increase another 20,000 viewers with finals.

Tonight, I think I will check to see if this the best rating in the last two years for a non overrun episode of AR.

And would you believe, Puddin.  I actually forgot final numbers came out today?
