Season 13 ratings
« on: September 29, 2008, 11:20:33 AM »
Well preliminary ratins are out for last nights season premiere of AR.

Tar scored 10.29 million viewers.  And a 3.2 in the adult 18-49 demo.

Well this is both good and bad news.

Lets get the bad news out of the way.
1st Becuase of a sports overrun the viewer numbers will probably fall slightly.
2nd We are down 3.53 million from the premiere last year (which benifted by an excellent overrun).
3rd Both 60 minutes (12.14 million) and Cold Case (11.24 million scored more viewers)

Okay on with the good news.
Our demo was the highest for CBS 60 min (2.2), Cold Case (2.7), Unit (2.6).
We are up from the year ago performance of Viva Laughlin by about 4 million viewers.
We scored better then Extreme Makeover:  Home Edition in viewers and demo (and thats unusual.

So overall we did pretty good, not great, but pretty good.

Fox had the NFL overrun which hurt, plus NBC is having tremendous ratings with Sunday Night Football thus far.

Next week, CBS has the overrun so that should help.

the cowboys plus a bad jacksonville team playing on sunday night will help tar increase viewers

God we suck.

Fast Nationals are in (again because of the over run this might change a bit with final numbers) but here you go.  We were watched by only 10.78 million viewers.

That plain sucks for a sports overrun (and in fact since we moved to Sunday) thats the smallest audience the show has ever had with a sports overrun.

Even our 18-49 demo wasn't very good.  With just a 3.2 (though that was enough to beat Cold Case and the Unit).

Very disappointing.

i hope CBS doesn't cancel TAR14....or has it already been given the 100% greenlight, no matter how the TAR13 ratings are?

Its not that bad Michael.  Almost all shows are down from the year ago numbers (and thats typical).  Its just disappointing that this is the rist time since season 9 that TAR hasn't increased over the previous year's cycle.

Well, a lot of it has to do with the NFL ratings which are up this season. Once again, Sunday Night Football killed everyone this week. That's including Desperate Housewives which until this season had been "NFL-proof".

Weren't we supposed to be able to see complete episodes at CBS this time? If so, I haven't found them yet... I thought maybe that would play a role but maybe not...

I was thinking that TiVo and Later viewing is probably really big for TAR...I always like to be able to pause and take a second look here more than any other show I watch.  Is Tivo use tracked at all and factored in any of the rating charts?

This guy has been keeping charts for awhile


Last night TAR ratings held steady, actually it was even slightly
higher than the season premiere thanks to football overrun. It
even helped CBS to win 8PM time slot. It is a great news because
most shows lose 20% of viewers when the second episode airs. It is
an exciting episode thanks to the multiple trainwrecks spreading
over the whole hour. People love watching trainwreck, especially
reality show viewers. They should come back next week. Just don't
submit this episode for the next Emmy's.

DVR use is tracked and can be added to the overall ratings, but I'm not exactly sure how it's done.

Well I am surprised they didn't include the Vice Presidential Debate in this weeks ratings.  Because that alone would have been enough to knock us out of the top 20, since it did over 11 million viewers on 3 different networks.

On the demo front wit a 3.4 in the adult 18-49 we beat all but 60 minutes (typical during a sports overrun when 60 minutes gets the lion share of bleed over audience in all age groups).

Unlike last week we gt a minor bump in ratings, but Cold Case and The Unit took a hit in ratings and demo.  Which sorry for them, but good for us.  As we beat Cold Case and the Unit in all three demo groups 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 (which we did last week as well and beat 60 minutes in all three of those demos), but we also outperformed).

While it is nice to see us go up with finals (even if just marginally).  LAst year when 60 minutes would pull that high of a ratings number we were performing stronger.

With the ABC lineup also doing weaker across the board, I need to check last years Football to see if they are performing at similar levels (or lower or higher).

But to gloat (at CBS expense) the 8pm hour say dramatic year to year growth over same week last year.  When Viva premiered........

I'm shocked that ratings are down, because I think it's SUCH a good season!  Already so much drama!!!  Stupid stupid football and 60minutes gets in our way and then people lose interest :(

I agree Michael, TAR12 was not all that. This season rocks! I can't get into the TAR12 re-runs on the Travel Channel ..I watched 1 episode in all.

Special event news programming like the Presidential Debates aren't included in the ratings because they don't contain commercials. Debates are usually put into another category and aren't counted in the primetime ratings.

ETA - I omitted don't and I put that in bold. Sorry for the confusion.

I was curious because I knew they performed exceptionally well, especially for the Vice Presidential Debates.  I mean really.
