TAR 21 Ratings thread

<< < (9/9)

theschnauzers:
As I've tried to point out all season, the ratings system relying on live plus same day viewing does not fully measure audiences any longer. The networks, especially Les Moonves at CBS, and the advertisers both know it.
I want to wait to see the final weekly report tomorrow to see if it sheds any further light on this, especially since live plus three day and live plus seven day numbers aren't included.

Everything I've seen though suggests that by seven days out, the audience numbers are at a minimum stable, if not improving at little over time. I just wish there was actual numbers out there to show this.

I doubt that. It was the football game that dropped viewers. The sisters made this season entertaining

I know that, but the twinnies got MAJOR hate on facebook. Now that I think about it, it was probably a combo of football + twinnies. By the way, the Chippendales made this seaosn entertaining.

--- End quote ---

No offence but the people hating on the twins on facebook are the ones that are hypocritical and turn around and then call the girls names. Its crazy. Yes the Chippendales helped make the season but the Twins were definitely the stand out team. Every episode they made me laugh for ex.

--- End quote ---

I usually hate it when fans threat to not watch the show on facebook, many times hypocritical as you said, but at least for the twiinies, they had a reason. No one ever was in a "stealing" incident before, so its not being hypocritical.

'Amazing Race' Finale Delivers Not-so-Amazing Ratings

11 hours ago by Chuck Ross
TVbytheNumbers


The two-hour season finale of CBS reality franchise “The Amazing Race” stumbled at the finish line Sunday night, delivering a number that tied the program’s lowest-rated finale ever, based on Nielsen overnight results.

TVbytheNumbers.com reports that “Race” dipped to a 2.6 average rating in the key 18-49 demo, down a whopping 31% from the finale for the fall season a year ago, and down 4% from the show’s performance a week earlier.

Other programming on CBS Sunday night was also down: “60 Minutes” plunged 42% from a football-delayed episode a week ago to a 1.9 average in 18-49, while “The Mentalist” slipped 11% from its most recent fresh episode to a 1.6.

Meanwhile, NFL football was up, enabling NBC to coast to an easy win for the night. “Sunday Night Football” delivered a 6.9 average rating in the 18-49 demo, up from a 6.6 a week ago.

The report notes that live football broadcasts mean the numbers will be subject to more than the usual adjustments.

For prime time overall, NBC came in with a preliminary 5.7 average in viewers 18-49, ahead of Fox (3.5 average), CBS (2.2) and ABC (1.6). NBC also had a big win in total viewers, averaging 15.9 million to 9.6 million for CBS, 8.5 million for Fox and 6.7 million for ABC.
