TAR Episode 1 Premiered with a 1.2 rating in 18-49 demo. Down 0.4 from last years premiere, but improved the time slot.

I think, all things considered, it's a pretty decent result. It's better than what has been in the time slot this year (Seal team, Million dollar Mile, World's Best), and while it's lower than last year's premiere, last year was in January, which is a much more watched TV-time than April. I think it's pretty solid.

It did great for it being off for over a year. 1.2 is definitely great for CBS since most of their shows except for a few are below a 1.0.

ABC – “Modern Family” (R): 2.1/ 4 (#4)
CBS – “The Amazing Race” (season premiere): 3.6/ 6 (#1)
NBC – “Chicago Fire” (R): 2.7/ 5 (#2)
Fox – “Star”: 2.6/ 4 (#3)
CW – “Jane the Virgin”: 0.6/ 1 (#5)

I am not really understanding these numbers but this seems like really good result to me? Comparing it with other show that night... Number one baby. <3 It beat (once) popular show like Modern Family and Chicago Fire!!! I really hope it can keep on...

The other comparison mentioned in some of the reports on the overnight ratings was with Criminal Minds a year ago, where TAR’s overnight numbers in demo and total audience was an even 20 percent increase. Given how broadcast network numbers tend to drift downwards from year to year, that’s like the TAR 30 performance in the winter of 2018.

Not as strong as TAR30's start, which got over 7 million :(

I hate to admit the Jess & Cody fans may not have been entirely wrong, lol

I don't think it was all because of Jess and Cody. TAR30 premiered the first week of January and people were still home on vacation.

Keep in mind the (R) next to Modern Family and Chicago Fire indicates they were both reruns, so TAR had very little competition this week.

The 1.2 rating is fine. Just keep in mind that premieres are generally the highest rated episodes, so if it goes down in the coming weeks (when the other shows aren't in reruns), then the ratings won't look that great. But it's off to a fine start.

Also keep in mind that season 30 was in the 8pm timeslot for the first half of that season, then shifted to 9pm. So the fact season 30 had higher numbers for the premiere in live plus same day can at least be partly attributable to that.
Nor is it clear whether TAR will shift to the 8pm hour after Survivor ends which was the original plan for May 22nd, or what CBS is going to do. A weaker lead-in wouldn’t be helpful.

I think CBS will move it up to 8pm and have 2 hour episodes until the finale. Just speculation though.

TAR Episode 2 got a 1.0 rating in 18-49 demo. Down 0.2 from the premiere. Still not bad as nothing else on CBS this year has been able to get that or higher.

The halves were 1.1/1.0 so it could possibly adjust up. TAR improved CBS' 9pm Wednesday Time Slot by 20% from last year.

I think it has to do with the time TAR is on. The first half of TAR rates well. The second half drops off probably because of families going to sleep.

The 9 pm hour is more watched than the 8 pm hour. Unfortunately, Survivor is just a more popular show and always has been. Hopefully CBS is at least taking note of how TAR is improving the slot over everything that has aired there this season, and that it's rating higher than a majority of their shows currently on.

I'm actually impressed on how well TAR is doing. It's doing amazing (pun intended) for a show that was only given about 10-12 days to promote along with premiering in April (a low rated month for TV)

Also have to remember that as a business model, scripted shows have more value for the networks than reality shows in syndication such as the streaming and international market. Which is why CBS can keep shows like Elementary and others going because they still make money for them in the afterlife even if their ratings are absurdly low.

So in that sense, TAR might have a higher bar to clear than a scripted drama would when it comes to CBS' scheduling decisions.

mmh that explain why they do survivor twice a year and TAR only once per year, i thought all this time its because TAR is way more expensive to produce
but in last decade, BB and TAR attract more casual viewer ie younger audience than survivor

It also had a full slate of competition, even higher than usual, as the Billboard Music Awards were on NBC and dominated the night easily, plus ABC's comedies returned with new episodes. I'm curious to see how it will do starting 5/22 when it moves up to 8pm and Survivor is done. Would be nice to see it stay steady.

So in percentages it between 33 and 40 percent.
That source also has the total viewer data which also reflects a similar percent growth:
Quote
#24 Amazing Race (CBS, Wed. 4/24/19) +1.588m (L+SD: 4.650m; L+3: 6.238m)
It seems to me that the show hasn’t lost any viewers from TAR 30 in the 9 pm hour. I just think we’ll do better once the shift to 8pm takes place on May 22.

Last night's episode was down yet another tick to a 0.8.

That's a 1.2, 1.0, 0.9, and 0.8 for the first 4 episodes (Live numbers). Not a great trend, but here's hoping it stabilizes once it moves to 8 pm.

And unlike Survivor, TAR is still able to produce decent seasons.

Ratings are ok, I guess, but definitely not high enough to guarantee fall spot for TAR32.

CBS renewed the bulk of their lineup today, and ordered a bunch of new series. I'd honestly be surprised to see it on the fall schedule. We'll find out next week.

I’m as concerned about live plus same day data as I am live plus three and live plus seven. Live plus seven tends to be very consistent. Plus this is graduation week at many high schools and colleges and vacation season, so that may be a factor this week.

CBS tends to pick up series to air in mid season now. One just renewed series, Bull, Ian alredy in trouble as Steven Spielberg and in Ambon Entertainment studio have quit as executive process on the series just after renewal announcement.
