2nd ep. "Amazing Race 13" ratings improve in final analysis


While the early rough estimates indicated the disturbing lack of a football ratings boost for the 2nd episode of "The Amazing Race 13," final same-day ratings indicated that TAR13 received at least a minor boost from the football overrun after all.

The October 5, 2008 airing of TAR13 received a final 3.4 Nielsen rating among same day viewers in the age 18-49 demo, up from the initially reported 3.2 estimate and also up from last week's confirmed 3.2 premiere mark. "The Amazing Race 13" 2nd airing was viewed by 11.0 million people, up from the originally estimated 10.4 million viewers and also up from last week's confirmed 10.0 million count.

"The Amazing Race 13" finished in 18th place among prime-time programs in overall viewership this past week and 16th place among age 25-54 viewers, admittedly helped by a "60 Minutes" lead-in that took 3rd and 10th places by those respective measures. TAR13 did not make the primetime top 25 in the 18-49 demographic.

CBS won the network battles for the week among overall, age 18-49 and age 25-54 viewership with "The Amazing Race" scoring near or above the network average in all those measures. While run #13 still isn't hitting early run #12 ratings levels, the program's long-term place on the CBS lineup seems more secure than it did just a few days ago.

   EDT          Series                 Viewers(millions)     Rating(18-49)
7:30 p.m.   60 Minutes               16.6                         4.0
8:30 p.m.   The Amazing Race 13 11.0                         3.4
9:30 p.m.   Cold Case                 11.1                         2.8
10:30 p.m.  The Unit                  9.5                           2.7
 
CBS weekly average                   11.1                          3.2

Boy the ratings were so not that good, last night.  Though there were some markets delayed by overruns, I don't foresee a large impact.


Amazing Race in Fast Nationals (again these do change some in finals) had 9.17 million viewers a 2.8 in adults 18-49 and a 2.0 in adults 18-34.

On CBS we barely beat the Unit in total viewers 9.12 to 9.17 million viewers (thats the closest we have been to last in viewers this season).  We easily beat the others in the  adult 18-34 demo (not a huge factor for CBS they are much more concerned with the 18-49 and 25-54 demos, but hey I'll take anything I can get).  We barely beat Cold Case and the Unit in the 18-49 demo. We had a 2.8, Cold Case 2.7, the Unit 2.6, thats the closest we have been this season.

For the fall cycles the viewer total of 9.17 is 2nd lowest we have ever had on a Sunday.  The lowest was during Christmas week last season (were far, far fewer people are watching tv in general, so 9 million then was a great rating, here its terrible).

Going back to the typical fall broadcast schedule (which las year wasn't due to its late start), we have to go back to the Family Edition who had one episode lower then 10 million, with 8.8 million.

Thats just awful.

Now the spring cycles for All Stars and season 9 both had ratings lower (but TAR like most of the broadcast schedule does get lower ratings during the spring).

And the first week's DVR information is out.  Two important things here.  Teh DVR information that is released weekly includes 2 charts.  The first is the top 20 based on largest increase of total viewers.  The 2nd is based on the top 20 based on percentage increase.  That 2nd chart usually helps things with a smaller audience (like the whole CW lineup, which is DVR at a much higher percentage rate).  SO if we have weeks with no data. It means that it didn't make either of those top twenty charts.

Lucky this week, we snuck by.

The season premiere DVR results.

Amazing Race
Live Viewers (people who watched during the live broadcast) 9.089 million viewers.

Live Same Day (what I report as final numbers each week, refers to anyone who watched the show the day it aired up to 3am that night) 10.036 million

So 947 thousand people watched the first episode that night but after it aired.
Live plus 7 (those that watched with DVRs after the live broadcast to 7 days later) 10.587 million viewers.

So after that first night 551 thousand people watched it Monday through Saturday.

It also means that a total of 1.498 million people watch AR on their DVR's.

We ranked an increase of 16.5%, and were the 2Oth show on the list for largest audience gain (so we barely made the chart).

Out of CBS shows only 6 had better increases in total viewers.  NCIS, CSI Miami, Two and a Half Men, Criminal Minds, Survivor, and the Mentalist.

We had the largest increase in audience for any show in the 8pm Sunday time slot.

Only two other shows on Sunday made either list (though both did better) ABC desperate Housewives and Brothers and Sisters.

While its good news, its not as good as last year.  With an estimated 9% increase year to year of DVR usage, we scored better last season in all but one episode in increase of viewers.  But in comparison to the rest of CBS lineup we did rather well.

As Puddin beat me to it.

Here's the results for CBS Sunday
7:00PM 60 MINUTES  10.75 million viewers, 1.9/6 18-48 demo, 2.7/7 25-54 demo
8:00PM AMAZING RACE 13  9.01 million viewers, 2.9/7 18-49 demo, 3.6/8 25-54 demo
9:00PM COLD CASE  10.99 million viewers, 2.7/6 18-49 demo, 3.7/8 25-54 demo
10:00PM THE UNIT  9.1 million viewers, 2.6/7 18-49 demo, 3.2/8 25-54 demo

So we actually did worse in viewers but improved slightly in the 18-49 demo, which is very important and actually more important then the viewer total.  We also did well  (though Cold Case for the first time this season) beat us in the 25-54 demo which is the bread and butter demo of CBS.

While the ratings (including the demos) are disappointing, ratings for the night across the board were down, so I guess misery loves company...

And exactly how old is the audience for 60 minutes.  Until last month I never tracked the 25-54 year demo (it pays per minute less, but it is CBS main demo).  But good 60 minutes doesn't even hit that demo at all. 

Is there a demo called 6 feet under....or one foot in the grave, because that appears to be the only people who watch it.

It is still the 30th ranked show overall...And in a world with a bajillion show each week in the rankings, 30 is nothing to sneeze at...

Plus, as the Race progresses and the "non-interesting" (I say that with a grain of salt and a discarded X-Men comic) racers are philiminated ,the numbers should increase. People always turn out when the Race is at its pinnacle.

CBS placed first on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday in the week beginning Oct. 13, and is projected to win its 3rd consecutive week in all key ratings measures.

Editors Note:  Due to CBS's late running football and NBC's prime sports programming, ratings for both networks and all time period rankings are tentative and subject to change.  CBS's football ran until approximately 7:45 PM, ET.

From 7:30-8:30 PM, 60 MINUTES was first in households (10.3/17), viewers (16.21m), adults 25-54 (5.5/14) and adults 18-49 (4.3/12).  Note:  There was 15 minutes of football included in this average.

At 8:30 PM, THE AMAZING RACE was second in households (7.1/11), viewers (11.21m), adults 25-54 (4.0/09) and averaged a 3.0/07 in adults 18-49 fourth in adults 18-49 (3.0/07).  Note:  There was 15 minutes of 60 MINUTES included in this average.

COLD CASE at 9:30 PM was second in households (7.0/11), viewers (10.57m), tied for second with NBC's tentative football delivery in adults 25-54 (3.6/08) and averaged a 2.7/06 in adults 18-49.  Note:  There was 15 minutes of AMAZING RACE included in this average.

THE UNIT from 10:30-11:30 PM posted a 5.8/11 with 8.64m viewers, 2.9/08 in adults 25-54 and 2.4/06 in adults 18-49.  Note: There was 15 minutes of COLD CASE in this average. 

For the night, CBS was first in households (8.6/14), viewers (13.45m), adults 25-54 (4.6/11) and tied for first in adults 18-49 (3.7/09, with ABC).

I would say it as "thank goodness for 60 Minutes carryovers, which were induced by CBS football game runovers."

Well I never posted the Fast Nationals as the football overrun was going to have a large change in teh results and they did.

Amazing Race 10.29 million viewers (the smallest audience ever Spring or Fall on Sunday with a major sports overrun) 3.1 in adults 18-49, and a 3.9 in adults 25-54.

60 minutes which truly benifits from the football overrun killed us on all fronts.  But we still manged to outperform Cold Case and the Unit in both Demo groups and the uNit in total viewers.

But this for the first time since moving to Sunday's we are seeing year to year declines in the same time period.

Sunday's Fast Nationals

60 minutes 12.52 million viewers and a 2.2 in adults 18-49
AR 9.71 million and a 2.9 in adults 18-49
Cold Case 11.99 2.7 in adults 18-49
Unit 9.10 and a 2.5 in adults 18-49

So again depresssing viewer totals but still managing to outscore the others in the important 18-49 demo.

Well I wouldn't say bad, as most shows lose viewers each season.  But since moving to Sunday's this is the first season where we aren't actually improving and are dropping so disappointing would be a better term.

..........

In addition, filmmaker Curtis Hanson (“L.A. Confidential”) and “Jericho” executive producer Carol Barbee are looking to put a new spin on the medical drama format for CBS. And while the odds are good that there will be more of “Survivor” and “The Amazing Race” next year, the status of Mark Burnett’s “Jingles” is still uncertain.

—When asked if “Survivor” would return for more cycles beyond the one currently in production, CBS Corp. President-CEO Leslie Moonves indicated it would. “I think it’s a pretty safe bet,” he said. “I’m also very pleased with the numbers for ‘The Amazing Race.’”   :jam:  :yess:

The only thing I really worry about (besides just being neurotic about ratings) is that typically the show performs worse in the spring, so I wouldn't be surprised to see the show get 8 million to 10 million during season 14. 

And that will be the time we get an official renewal notice (at least usually).
