Hey, I'm a huge fan of the show (one of my favorites on televisions).  I'm glad to see a forum dedicated to TAR and its ratings as I always look for the fast nationals Monday mornings @ pifeedback.com.

Anyways, Sunday's episode has a 60 Min. with Obama as a lead-in.  The last time this happened was on 11/16/08.  The line-up has about a half-hour overrun which scored approx. 25.34 million viewers and a 7.7 in the demo.  60 Min. got 25.104 million viewers and a 6.3 in the demo.  TAR followed with 12.124 million viewers and a 3.5 in the demo.  So, the rentention wasn't great.  But, the ratings were good for TAR.

I think this Sunday the rating might be slightly lower for 60 Min. (without the football to help it) say...20 million and a 5.5 in the demo.  However, if TAR can either keep doing how it's been doing or push its demo up to a 3.4 or so, it would have better retention.

Anyways, I'm happy that TAR has won its timeslot against orginal Extreme Makeover: Home Edition in their last two head-to-heads.  Hopefully, it can keep it up.  I think it deserves too.

If TAR is able to keep the ratings its been getting, I think we'll get two cycles.  Million Dollar Password's failure in being a demo performer in the timeslot certainly helped.

Hi tg,

Welcome to the forum!  :waves: :waves:

There will be an overrun this week in the Eastern half of the country due to the NCAA Tournament so that will help ratings as Obama will definitely raise ratings for 60 Minutes and then the audience will stay for TAR.

CBS will have three games in the 5 p.m. window for the NCAA Tournament. Their projected start times are 4:50 p.m., 5 p.m. and 5:20 p.m.

Each game takes just over 2 hours to complete. CBS will cut into each game so the entire nation sees the finish and then the East and Central time zones will join 60 Minutes in its entirety probably around 7:30 p.m. So expect TAR to start around 8:20 - 8:30 p.m. provided there's not an overtime period.

I get the CBS Sports press releases so I do have their tip times for the Tournament for this weekend. :)

Fast National ratings for Sunday, March 22, 2009.

CBS controlled Sunday night's ratings, but how did the network do it? Was it largely run-over from a series of close NCAA second round games? Was it a "60 Minutes" interview with President Barack Obama? It's hard to know.

Among adults 18-49, CBS won the night with a 3.5 rating, nipping the 3.4 rating for ABC. FOX was a distant third with a 3.4 rating, followed by the 2.1 rating for NBC. The CW was fifth with a 0.3 rating.

Overall, CBS had things easier with an estimated 13.55 million viewers and an 8.3 rating/14 share, though those are likely to change, as is the nature with life events. ABC was well back in second with a 6.5/11, comfortably ahead of the 4.1/7 for NBC. FOX's 3.0/5 and The CW's 0.6/1 followed.

In the 7 p.m. hour, CBS won with the 9.5/17 combination of NCAA Tournament games and "60 Minutes." NBC was second with a 4.3/8 for "Dateline NBC," nipping ABC's "America's Funniest Home Videos" in the ratings, though ABC's show was ahead in viewers. FOX' "Hole in the Wall" was fourth, beating The CW's 0.6/1 for a repeat of "Jericho."

At 8 p.m. CBS had a 9.9/16 for the combination of "60 Minutes" and "The Amazing Race." ABC's "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" had a 5.8/9 for second. FOX's "The Simpsons" and "King of the Hill" averaged 3.5/6 between them, beating the dismal 2.9/5 for the second week of "Kings" on NBC. The CW's broadcast of "The Mod Squad" was fifth.

ABC moved into first at 9 p.m. with a 9.2/14 for "Desperate Housewives." CBS fell to second with a 7.0/11 for the combination of "The Amazing Race" and "Cold Case." NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" and FOX's "Family Guy" and "American Dad" tied with a 4.1/6, with FOX holding an actual advantage in both viewers and the 18-49 demo. The CW's movie was last.

"Brothers & Sisters" had a 7.0/11 to win the 10 p.m. hour for ABC. CBS' "Cold Case" and "The Unit" was second with a 6.8/11. NBC's "Celebrity Apprentice" improved in its second hour, but still finished third.

Here is the rough Fast National data (we could see quite a bit of change in final numbers on this one).

11.627 million Viewers 3.2 in the 18-49 demo and a 2.2 in adults 18-34

With this having such a large overrun 60 minutes was the show that benefited the most (plus its Obama interview) as it won easily beat us in all demo groups and it viewers (in viewers it was the highest rated show of the night).

Hard to accurately judge Fast Nationals with such a big overrun (as they will have some changes with the correction of Pacific and East Coast times.

Tory

It's quite possible those numbers can fall (or rise) last year for example in a similar situation we had a Fast National score of 12.520 million and dropped to  a 11.996 million.

Either way its a good number for the show (I was hoping for marginally higher) but typically with overruns we get good sized increase with overruns of 15-45 minutes, after that the benefit starts to decrease.  With us nearly starting on the hour it makes it easier for people to switch to the other networks without missing anything or losing much time.

One thing I do want to point out.  When we exclude the episode against the Oscars and we eliminate all sports overruns at this point we are actually performer stronger then season 13 (Which was the only season on Sunday to see year to year declines). 

And since networks tend to judge versus on same day year to year data, we are currently averaging just  a little over 300,000 viewers less then All Stars (the last time we aired in the spring. Which is a decline of only 3% over two years.  With most shows losing 5-10% each season that a great for our decline.  And if we can manage to stay at 9.3 million or better for the rest of the season (on average) we will actually end with a higher viewer average.  Soethig we really, really want to see.

This is the CBS press release:

SPORTS, NEWS AND ENTERTAINMENT DRIVE CBS TO SUNDAY NIGHT WIN IN VIEWERS AND KEY DEMOGRAPHICS

Sports (NCAA MENS BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP), News (60 MINUTES) and Entertainment (THE AMAZING RACE 14 and COLD CASE)  combined to give CBS a Sunday win in viewers and key demographics, according to Nielsen preliminary live plus same day ratings for March 22.

 

            Editors Note:  CBS’s prime time ratings include a 52-minute runover for CBS Sports coverage of the NCAA MENS BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP.  As a result, all regularly scheduled prime time programs were broadcast off the clock, and ratings and rankings for The Network and the individual series are tentative and subject to change.

 

            CBS Sunday included Steve Kroft's interview with President Obama on 60 MINUTES which was seen by at least 16 million viewers.

 

            Preliminary estimates for CBS's primetime entertainment programming include THE AMAZING RACE 14 (11.63m) and COLD CASE (10.79m).

 

For the night, CBS was first in households (8.3/14), viewers (13.55m), adults 25-54 (4.4/11) and adults 18-49 (3.5/09).

CBS PLACES FIRST IN VIEWERS FOR THE THIRD CONSECUTIVE WEEK AND FOR THE 20TH TIME IN 26 WEEKS THIS SEASON
CBS Continues as the Only Network Posting Year-to-Year Gains in Viewers, Adults 18-49, Adults 25-54 and Adults 18-34

 

"60 Minutes," with 17 Million Viewers, is CBS's Number One Show of the Week

 
"The Amazing Race" Delivers its Largest Audience Since November 2007 Helping Lead CBS to its Fourth Straight Sunday Win

Wow, those are staggering numbers. To get over 10 million viewers is an achievement, but to get 12.4 million in this day and age is certainly noteworthy. Now, how much of that was an Obama bounce and from the NCAA Tournament whose numbers are up 6% from last year, we don't know, but to hold that much of the audience from 60 Minutes is very good.

Next week, we'll have another overrun which will help especially if North Carolina, an NCAA Tournament brand name, is in the late game. Ratings will go up if 1) the game is close and 2) 60 Minutes has another blockbuster night like it has for the last two weeks (Federal Charman Bernanke and President Obama).
Just here to visit.

Yes its a great result (and unlike last time it occured we actually went up in Finals.

Here is the kicker.  This is the 2nd highest rated episode of AR since we moved to Sundays.  Season's 12 opener after the huge Patriots Overrun is the only time we have scored higher on Sunday.

Its the highest spring performance ever on a Sunday.

More Historic Data its officially 10th highest viewed episode out of all 14 seasons of TAR.

Only beat (not in order of viewers, too lazy).
Season 1:  Season finale
Season 2:  3rd episode which aired I believe after Survivor
Season 5:  2 hour season finale
Season 6:  2 hour season finale
Season 7: 5 episodes in the season including the 2 hour season finale
Season 12:  Season Preimere.

Its a great, great performance.

It makes our season average push over the 10 million and gives us a 3.0 18-49 average.  We would like to stay close to that.  So basically what happened is this made up for the terrible performance against the Oscars.

CBS.com Posts Record Month in Unique Viewers, Streams, and Minutes
Network Website had 21 million unique viewers for February
By David Tanklefsky -- Broadcasting & Cable, 3/24/2009 3:35:00 PM MT
CBS.com recorded a record-setting 21 million unique viewers for the month of February, with a 576% increase for the month compared to last year. The site also saw large year-by-year increases in streams (up 315%) and total minutes (up 452%).
 
“We continue to see growth to CBS.com as a result of our strategy to bring our content to where fans are through hundreds of CBS Audience Network partners," said Bill Binenstock, VP of CBS.com in a statement.
 
The growth of CBS.com is driven by a multi-partner syndication strategy which includes 300 partner sites that stream content from CBS.com through the audience network. CBS.com also capitalized on success of shows like The Amazing Race by building out behind-the-scenes video content related to the programming as well as games and online contest.
 
The network can also thank Joaquin Phoenix, whose incoherent rambling interview on David Letterman Feb. 11 delivered more than 7.5 million clips views online the week following the Late Show broadcast
