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.

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.

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.

Here’s the live plus seven data for episode 4:

In the demo, live plus 7:
#16 Amazing Race (CBS, Wed. 5/08/19) +0.57 (L+SD: 0.83; L+7: 1.40)
That’s about a 70 percent gain over live plus same day.

In the total audience, live plus 7:
#29 Amazing Race (CBS, Wed. 5/08/19) +1.979m (L+SD: 4.434m; L+7: 6.413m) about a 50 per cent gain over live plus same day.

0.9 for the 8 pm hour, 0.7 for the 9 pm her, per showbuzz daily.

CBS should know by now that TAR is an 8 pm show. I'd say that's a solid result for the 8 pm hour, since it is higher than it's most recent episode 2 weeks ago, despite being out of Survivor's shadow.

Those numbers just show more people DVRd the 9pm episode, thus the higher percentage gain.
But the total viewers for the 9pm ep still lower than the 8pm ep.

Basically, more people watched live at 8pm than 9pm.

Those numbers just show more people DVRd the 9pm episode, thus the higher percentage gain.
But the total viewers for the 9pm ep still lower than the 8pm ep.

Basically, more people watched live at 8pm than 9pm.

What I have heard is that the delayed views are hugely important as well. I think that may be  a big factor for our renewals. Just as much if not more than live. ???

Yes, but with regards to the 8pm vs 9pm debate, the numbers show (more so during TAR30) that more people watched live at 8pm than 9pm. And in fact, people actually tuned out at 9pm. Which of course was odd considering how the eps were edited last year in a seamless way. But maybe not if a chunk of families tuned out as well if 9pm was too late for the kiddies.

Just still reinforcing that the live views may not be the most important.

Could be a factor though if we are being considered for a 9PM slot sometime....

But the DVR views are serious as well and we seem to be doing well there!

As we’ve seen in the pre May 15th episodes, there’s consistently been another noticeable bump up with live plus seven numbers. And some local markets have had to deal with severe weather and pro sports playoffs (NBA and NHL) which also affect live numbers and live plus same day.

I don't understand how live numbers could be less important when the vast majority just forwards through the ads in DVRs.
I just seriously don't get it, and this has been a point rammed into the ground over and over again by certain people.

Because broadcasters and streamers have confirmed through years of research that an increasing percentage of viewers time shift their viewing. The thing to keep in mind, is the different shows have different levels of time shifted viewing. For TAR, that percentage seven days out is a 40 plus percent increase in the 18-49 demo, and 50 percent among total viewers. Others shows can be higher or lower, thus it can’t be assumed that live audiences will show the whole viewership story. Off the top of my head, TAR 31 in both categories after 7 days is running even with TAR 30, thus supporting that argument that the Wednesday night time slot is an advantage.

I will try to weigh in on the question. I think the question concerns whether advertisers derive any benefit from time shifted viewers that would justify being concerned with the plus x day ratings. I know that I, personally, time shift many shows that I watch just so that I can use the 'wonderful' skip button on my Tivo. Therefore, my watching wouldn't benefit advertisers very much since I don't see their ads.

DVR numbers are nice, but don't be fooled into thinking that Live numbers aren't important. For the most part, the biggest benefits in DVR gainers are the biggest rated shows to begin with. It's extremely rare to see a show that doesn't rate very well in Live ratings add more than other shows in DVR. Your Big Bang Theory's and Walking Deads are always going to be the biggest DVR gainers, as they are the biggest shows. Generally, the rich get richer and the poor get slightly less poor.

And I know I'll get countered with "percentage increase" arguments, but those are pointless. Would a network rather have a show add 75% of a 0.8 Live rating and get to a 1.4 after 7 days, or add 20% of a 1.5 Live rating and get to a 1.8?

If you want to help the show, stream it on CBS's website (I know it used to free, I'm not sure if it's locked behind All Access now). Only Nielsen homes get counted in Live or DVR ratings, but CBS gets to see exactly how many people stream on their sites. Also, throw out some #AmazingRace tweets during an episode, as social engagement is measured now as well, and it's only a matter of time before that factors into advertising as well (if it doesn't already).

I'm saying that I don't understand the delusions in looking at the poor ratings/viewerships TAR has been getting in recent years and saying it's fine because adding DVR numbers make it decent.
I have no idea why advertisers would show a huge interest in shows that only rank high after DVR stuff is added in when, you know, the people watching DVRs have and take the option to forward through all the pesky ads?

Marionette, all broadcast shows have suffered substantial ratings declines every year for about the last ten years. So a viable show now needs a lower threshold than it used to.

And TheRabbi, the ability to track viewership has vastly improved over the last ten years for everything except viewers using over the air antennas. The ability exists for cable providers, streaming services, such as DirectvNow, as well as more specific streaming apps to track what all their subscribers are watching live or time shifted. This is so different than what it was even 5 years ago.

That's why I said to go stream it on CBS. Streaming is trackable. But for the many, many people still watching on traditional cable (and DVR), the only way you're [legally] getting tracked is if you have a Nielsen box.

Yes, the standards for renewing shows has changed significantly in the last 5-10 years in regards to raw numbers, but Live ratings are still important and should not be overlooked. Shows with bad Live numbers are still getting canceled. I didn't hear much about the World's Best at CBS's upfront. It had terrible ratings and was canceled.

Just to be clear on what I was saying, cable and streaming services now have the capacity using technology from Nielsen and other to track viewing of all channels on their systems. My viewing TAR on either Directv Now, or CBS All Access gets tracked either way. That’s one of the differences that has rapidly spread in the past five years, and how they’re fully able to have live plus 30 data. You don’t have to be a Nielsen household anymore unless you watch CBS over the air without a cable or streaming service.

NBC's American Ninja Warrior led Wednesday's non-sports offerings in primetime with a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49, followed closely by The Amazing Race (0.8) on CBS. The latter had a small edge in total viewers with 4.65 million to 4.34 million for Ninja Warrior.


The NBA Finals put up consistent ratings on Wednesday, once again carrying ABC to an easy win for the night.

As was the case with the first two games of the series, however, Game 3 was down significantly year to year.

ABC's live broadcast of the Toronto Raptors' 123-109 win over the Golden State Warriors drew a 10.0 household rating in metered markets, in line with the 10.1 and 10.2 for the first two contests. That's off 21 percent from a preliminary 12.7 in 2018 and the lowest for Game 3 of the series since 2013 (also 10.0).

Yet another unrelated fact.
The ads. I'm talking about the ads and the advertisers. Those are the primary reasons why I don't see networks caring too much about live +something numbers.

http://www.showbuzzdaily.com/articles/showbuzzdailys-top-150-wednesday-cable-originals-network-finals-6-5-2019.html Race adjusted up in the final Wednesday numbers to a 0.9 rating, tying Ninja Warrior in the slot, and improving week to week. Definitely good news! It really is a shame CBS has kind of squashed this show recently. It clearly can hold its own. We were all excited when 2 seasons filmed last year, but that hasn't altered CBS's scheduling of it.

Live plus 7 days in points and percentages for 18 to 49 demo:
#4 Amazing Race (P) (CBS, Wed. 5/29/19) +0.49 (L+SD: 0.81; L+7: 1.30)
#10 Amazing Race (P) (CBS, Wed. 5/29/19) +61% (L+SD: 0.81; L+7: 1.30)

Live plus 7 days in millions and percentages for total viewers:
#5 Amazing Race (P) (CBS, Wed. 5/29/19) +1.777m (L+SD: 4.748m; L+7: 6.525m)
#12 Amazing Race (P) (CBS, Wed. 5/29/19) +37.43% (L+SD: 4.748m; L+7: 6.525m)

The key here is that the numbers remained fairly consistent for TAR 31 regardless of whether it’s at 8pm or 9pm, and consistent with TAR 30, essentially showing that Wednesday nights have been better than the time slots of other recent seasons.
