TAR 21 Ratings thread

<< < (5/9) > >>

Given that the hybrid storm Sandy is headed towards the east coast, and the fact that watches and warnings were issued for the east coast from North Carolina to Maine, and well inland (Ohio, Indiana, and the southern Appalachians), in addition to the last game of the World Series plus NFL football), TAR's ratings may end up taking a hit.
The only mention I've seen so far about the overnights was that TAR's total audience was down 8 percent from last week (but still over 9 million), however, it is possible the weekly live plus same day numbers may not be available tomorrow.

Because it deals with ratings, I'm posting a link and the quoted article from on Les Moonves (chairman of CBS) on the question of what ratings investors and advertisers should be looking at; he's in favor of ignoring overnight ratings and favors using the Live plus 7 data and including all mobile device views in the numbers:

--- Quote ---Les Moonves Urges Industry Watchers To “Stop Looking At Overnight Ratings”
By DAVID LIEBERMAN, Executive Editor
Add the CBS chief to the gaggle of broadcast network execs who say that their soft early-season ratings mostly reflect changes in viewing habits — not dissatisfaction with their shows. “DVR usage has been growing, and streaming is pretty new, as is VOD,” Les Moonves told analysts in a call to discuss CBS Corp’s Q3 earnings. CBS shares are down about 10% since the fall season began, in part because investors are concerned about the ratings. (CBS is -17.6% in primetime among 18- to 49-year-olds for the first six weeks.) Things should improve, Moonves says, as Nielsen begins to count the growing number of viewers who watch shows on digital gadgets including smartphones and tablets. And he hopes to fold in many DVR users who record shows and watch them several days later. While the current system counts people who watch ads up to three days after a program airs, “we’re pushing to get it seven days, and we think it will happen in a short time.” With all of the changes, “people have to stop looking at overnight ratings. It’s a different ballgame.” Yet he remains characteristically upbeat that CBS will improve soon. At the beginning of the season many viewers like to sample new shows on other networks, but then return to their familiar favorites. “This past week we had our highest rated week ever,” Moonves says. Advertisers “realize by the end of the year we’re going to be fine” — and CBS won’t have to offer them make-good ads to compensate for ratings shortfalls.

Maybe the Turkish bath house played a part in the ratings?  :lol:

Here's what the CBS press release for the weekly ratings had to say about this past Sunday's episode compared to last week's (which weren't posted here, so it gives us more information about last Sunday as well:

--- Quote ---THE AMAZING RACE 21 (8:34-9:34 PM) was second in households (6.3/09) and viewers (10.20m), tied for second in adults 25-54 (3.6/07, with ABC) and averaged 2.6/06 in 18-49. Compared to last week, THE AMAZING RACE 21 was up +13% in households (from 5.6/08), +3% in adults 25-54 (from 3.5/07), +4% in adults 18-49 (from 2.5/06) and +790,000 viewers (from 9.41m, +8%).
--- End quote ---

So for the episode aired 10/28, Households were 5.6/08, adults 25-54 3.5/07, adults 18-49 (2.5/06) and 9.41 million viewers.
For this week, the episode aired 11/4, Households were 6.3/09, adults 25-54 3.6/07, adults 18-49 2.6/06; and 10.20 million viewers. And the show placed in the top 25 for the week:

--- Quote ---CBS top programs of the week:  #2 NCIS (B) (an average of 18.83m viewers), #3 60 MINUTES (16.30m), #4 NCIS: LOS ANGELES (B) (16.28m), #5 THE BIG BANG THEORY (B) (15.90m), #9 PERSON OF INTEREST (B) (13.60m), #10 TWO AND A HALF MEN (B) (12.65m), #14 CRIMINAL MINDS (B) (11.99m), #16 HOME DEPOT PRIME COLLEGE FOOTBALL "Alabama Crimson Tide at LSU Tigers" (S) (11.35m), #17 BLUE BLOOD (B) (11.05m), #18 CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION (B) (10.91m), #20 VEGAS (B) (10.75m), #22 ELEMENTARY (B) (10.49m), #23 THE AMAZING RACE 21 (10.20m), #25 CSI: NY (B) (10.05m), #26 THE GOOD WIFE (9.93m), #27 SURVIVOR: PHILIPPINES (B) (9.83m) and #29 THE MENTALIST (9.11m).

CBS did not put out a press release last week so there's no information beyond that extracted from this week about last week's episode.

It's nice to see TAR beat Survivor. That doesn't happen very often.  :conf:
