Since The Good Wife is on its final season, will we be seeing TAR moving back to Sunday nights if the ratings stay solid or somehow improve?

A 6 million average is pretty good for viewership, but as the season progresses it's more likely the younger one-team viewers will tune out once their team to look out for is eliminated. Let's hope ratings + viewers can stay stagnant.

UGH. March Madness!

One week is one thing, but TWO is something else. Can someone look and see what happened to 26's ratings then? Can't be good...

TAR26 was consistently 1.3-1.2, then post-break it plumetted to inconsistent 1.2-1.0 ratings. :(
Episodes 1 to 4 had 1.5, 1.1, 1.2 and 1.3 ratings respectively (unless we're looking at different sources and wikipedia is incorrect).
It returned after the fortnight break with a rating of 1.3 and then stayed consistently at 1.1 until the very finale.

So directly after the break the show wasn't affected, the way I see it. The ratings (and viewership as well) started decreasing only later.

CSI: Cyber is most likely toast and with The Good Wife gone, there are two big holes on CBS's Sunday schedule.

Ironically, TAR on Friday for this premiere did much better than the average of CBS's Sunday shows this season.

Here's praying the ratings stick for this season, as CBS is definitely experimenting with returning Reality TV to Sundays (Undercover Boss premiered for about 4 episodes on Sunday before heading back to Friday), and if the ratings were good enough, TAR is potentially headed back.

Back to 1.1 but almost 6 million viewers :( If it adjusts up it might tie #1 for its timeslot

Rachel, just a remider, the key here is how many additional eyeballs CBS picks up on all platforms within 7 days after broadcast. Nielsen has quit reporting live plus three after live plus same day.

Live plus seven day is what counts. And until we hear some number to show how much it is happening this season, it would be difficult to make judgments like that. All I've seen is that TAR tends to pick up around 50% in the demo and a but more in the total audience, both of which would be about where TAR was 5 years/10 seasons ago or more. Given the overall deterioration and fragmentation of the broadcast nets overall numbers with cable, alternative platforms and other (streaming and download) holding those numbers with live plus 7 puts TAR ahead of the pattern, and not behind.

Wiki is focused on the overnights and live plus same days. The media is. but the networks and the advertisers aren't. CBS for instance is monetizing the On Demand service on cable by including all of the commercials that ran on air during the episode, even the network promos for shows that ran that night before the episode even became accessible on demand.

So those eyeballs will get counted at live plus 7 and live plus 30. CBS apparently is doing the same thing on its CBS All-Access as well. (Think about what this means, please.) And the only way to avoid commercials to to use Amazon or I-Tunes to buy the episodes singly or as a season pass. (And CBS makes money on that too.

No, they're not going to shoot a gift horse in the mouth now that the figured out how to get commercials in and use it to get advertisers to buy time. Keep those things in mind.


Note: This was originally in the scheduling thread and without that context, this loses some meaning from not being with the immediately preceding posts about scheduling this season compared to last spring. Just an fyi for those who are confused about what led to this post.

If you average the 2 ABC shows, Dr. Ken pulled them down enough that TAR squeaked out a narrow 1st place in the 8-9 PM time slot.  :yess:

I'm not sure it works that way though.

A 1.3 was the highest rating of the night, so hopefully CBS doesn't take too much issue with a 1.1 rating. Not a bad result if they can hold that level this season. Been relatively stable since starting on Fridays.

I just needed to chime in here with the comparison that the show's ratings are in line  with where they were 5 years ago. That is simply not true. Season 18 averaged around a 2.5-2.9 rating in the demo (same day rating, and DVR gains were still a factor back then as well).

The current season is averaging about a 1.2 rating. I'm not privy to exactly how the first 2 episodes performed in Live+7, but it didn't show up in the top 25, so it wasn't more than a 0.6 gain. So definitely less than a 2.0 total rating, as opposed to probably around a 3.0 rating after DVR numbers 5 years ago, or at least a 33% decline.

To be fair, that is very common in today's age. All shows that were on 5 years ago have experienced drops, from Survivor to Greys anatomy.  And while it's true that internet streaming is more of a factor than it was 5 years ago, it's such a miniscule portion of the market. Same day ratings (technically C+3 ratings) are still the primary source of paying the bills, as well as sponsorships.  I think we'll be fine for seasons 29 and 30 at our current levels. CBS has bigger problems to worry about.

TheRabbi, the only way we will know for certain is when we get to see live plus seven, or even live plus 30 data. If you read what I've said, I have consistently pointed to live plus seven as showing basically no change, especially with all the alternate viewing platforms taken into account.

Y'all insist on playing around with the shorter time frame numbers, while the advertisers and the networks have moved on to live plus seven and CBS has moved on to live plus 30, and for new shows projections as to live plus 30. That is why shows are rarely being cancelled after a very few weeks, instead the networks are using initial and extended season orders especially for first seasons to kill off poor performers without "cancelling" them, and why shows starting to fade get shortened season orders and unfavorable time slots. (Example Person of Interest, which has yet to be set for a season premiere for a 13-episode order, and for which CBS had promised would premiere before the end of the spring season, i.e., May sweeps. A virtual impossibility at this point.)

Don't forget TAR makes money for CBS from its production costs, its overall revenue, including the syndication fees for the show worldwide, and it wouldn't surprise me if the show is whlly funded between placement fees from advertisers and the international syndication fees. This explains Survivor and Big Brother's survival while American Idol is dying.

This is not necessarily true. Look at the following CBS Shows: (All examples of the past 5 years)

-Angel From Hell (Yanked from the schedule after 5 episodes)
-NYC 22 (Cancelled after 4 episodes)
-Made in Jersey (Cancelled after 2 episodes and yanked from the schedule)
-We Are Men (Cancelled after 2 episodes)
-The Millers (Cancelled 4 episodes into Season Two)
-The McCarthys (Cancelled after 11 episodes and yanked from the schedule)
-Friends With Better Lives (Cancelled after 5 episodes)
-Battle Creek (Cancelled after 9 episodes)

I would say that CBS definitely still tracks Live and factors that. DVR means something, but it's not that heavy on weight, as live still matters the most.

To paraphrase from the TV Grim Reaper/Cancellation Bear:
"DVR + X do not f***ing matter."

This explains Survivor and Big Brother's survival while American Idol is dying.

The irony is American Idol is pulling much better numbers than Survivor and BB despite being cancelled, both Live and DVR.

Last Man Standing wasn't on so we won the timeslot.

Weirdly, we are as flat as last week with a 1.1 and 5.78 million viewers. EXACTLY THE SAME.

What is interesting is that the TAR lead in kept CBS on top for the whole night even with both those shows being ReRuns.  :yess:

Last Man Standing was on but also a rerun, right?

I've absolutely read what you've been saying, I just respectfully disagree.  There has been a sizable change.  Have you seen Live + 7 numbers for the season 28 premiere yet? (I'm genuinely asking and curious, I'm not trying to be a dick).  I saw the top 25 listing, and TAR wasn't on there, which means it had to have gained 0.6 or less, from its 1.3 premiere Live + same day.  So either, way, it's less than a 2.0 Live + 7 rating.  As I noted further up, 5 years ago the show was routinely doing 2.5's - 2.9's in the same day ratings.  DVR's existed back then as well, so while I don't have the +7 numbers for 5 years ago either, I'm just taking a very conservative estimate and saying we may have averaged a 3.0 Live +7 rating 5 years ago, compared to less than a 2.0 rating now, which is a significant dip.

I'm also curious and/or worried about Ford dropping their sponsorship.  No mentions in TAR27 or thus far in 28.  That had to be a decent revenue stream for the show, so maybe Ford wasn't happy with the results and/or portrayal.  Losing sponsors is a sure path to eventual demise of a show.  They did get Fitbit as a sponsor for 26 and 27 at least, though I haven't heard it mentioned yet this season.

Those "alternate viewing platforms" you mention are such a miniscule portion of the market that it doesn't put a big dent into how networks make their dollars. Internet streaming is counted by the hundreds or thousands.  Television viewers are counted by the millions.  The online market is certainly there (and slowly growing), but TV ad revenue is where the majority of the bills are paid, and that is still primarily Live Commercial ratings.

Live plus 30 is even less relevant.  If movie companies are advertising the weekend's new release during the show, they don't care who is seeing that ad 30 days from now when the movie is already gone.  Ads are meant to be seen immediately for their effect.  Networks keep promoting these numbers, since they are obviously the highest numbers they have, including everyone that has watched the program to that point, but advertisers are still sticklers for the smaller window of the first few days.

The change from Sunday to Friday accounts for a lot of that dip.
 
I am also worried about sponsors. If we were to lose Travelocity we would be dead. FitBit was a good 'fit" and gave us some good tasks, sad to see it not around again. Where is the selfies stick sponsor? ???. We could REALLY use a bank credit card tie-in aka TARCanada. Really nice to see REI last night! We had some online ads from LLBean last season, not seeing them now either, their clothing would have been a great tie-in. REI could supply some cold weather gear, will be interesting to see if we see anything in the Chamonix leg.


Ford I heard was not so happy with its cars being made to look bad/difficult to drive by racers who were unable to drive stick. (Hence the quotes from 27 racers about them being bugged by production to take lessons etc). But also heard that the change also happened at a time of a big Ford International reorganization/belt tightening which may have severely limited available sponsor funds...so who knows. In any case, it was a HUGE loss to us, and the tasks it generated, and the prizes offered as well. I miss them. (and Snapple, they were awesome!!)
