Episode 1: 7.31 million viewers, highest of any show during the night! 1.6 rating (0.2 higher than Hunted's first episode in the same time slot last year)

The total is higher than any TAR29 episode including +7 DVR wow!

It was also higher than any episode that aired on a Friday (season 25-28). So this is the highest rating since at least season 24. Great news!!

Modern family and the premiere of 911 did have higher 18-49 ratings which is important,  but TAR shockingly beat the return of the X files on fox (1.6 vs 1.4), as well as the ABC sitcoms and the blacklist. It nearly doubled the other CBS dramas on the evening. This is undoubtedly a huge win. Hopefully it maintains relatively close to this level and CBS would have no choice but to renew it, and maybe even consider multiple cycles again.

Yeah, it can't be understated how huge that 1.6 live number is. It's a big number in this day for any show. But especially huge for TAR. The TAR26 premiere that aired after Survivor on Wednesday got a 1.5 and 6.16 million viewers.

Those are good! The timeslot is half of TAR's battle.

Also, I've always said tv should start ASAP after the holidays. People are at home, staying out of the cold. Give them something to watch!

While Jody probably brought in more viewers, a jump this high in viewers was probably more to a better time slot and more advertising

Well sure, Jody fans are probably a significant portion of that, but a few of the other teams bring a pre-established fan base, too. And with it being on a much better night of the week.

But sure. Thanks for the much-needed boost, Jody fans!

Out of school week, and the hour would be my guess. Will be interesting to see how next week goes.

Time slot definitely is a factor.. but why did they get that time slot? Because they knew they could parlay the Jess and Cody/Big brother fan base into more viewers... so even just getting the time slot was thanks to them.

And the more advertising... like 80% of CBSí promotion has been of Jess and Cody.. they even had a CBS social employee with them all last night filming them watching the episode... and team Indy was there as well and they didnít have any cbs rep with them ...

Here's what I think. The Hour first, plus the fact that school was still out.

That it was an open start with a batch of people wanting to watch themselves.

The fan base of EACH team with some celebrity.

Am sure Jody's fan base helped. But not the only factor in play.

I just wanted to chime in that the timeslot is a much more reasonable explanation for the boost in viewers. I wouldn't argue that Jessica & Cody brought in the most viewers out of all the teams, but let's not spin everything to their glory. :cmaslol
Either way, I'm really happy and looking forward to steady viewership!

I'd argue that TAR28 had at least 3 teams with similarly sized (if not bigger), similarly dedicated fanbases as Jody who were also similarly uninterested in TAR before their team was cast. Yet there was a negligible impact on viewership.

The existing fanbases of these pseudo-celebrity teams together can certainly account for some new or returning viewers. But as has been pointed out, the Wednesday timeslot and premiering in this holiday-like week are much bigger factors for such a sizeable jump.

As huge as these premiere numbers are (and whatever the next week of DVR viewing might bring), I'll echo Peach saying that it will be interesting to see how next week goes. And the following weeks. This big premiere definitely gives TAR a much bigger cushion, especially as it heads toward the double episodes and then against the Olympics.

Or also, CBS needed a ready-to-go benchwarmer (which CBB also is) to fill the slot through the Olympics. And they've usually kept Survivor's slot warm with a reality/unscripted show as well.
