TAR32 Ratings
« on: October 15, 2020, 06:23:44 PM »
No one has made this yet, so I'll be reporting it here.

Final numbers - The TAR32 premiere is the show's lowest rated premiere and lowest viewed episode ever. A 0.7 with a paltry 3.58 million viewers. The show's prior low was a 0.6 and 3.6 million viewers with TAR29 South Korea.

Honestly not great.

CBS barely advertised it until 2 weeks before the premiere, besides little blurbs during other shows.

I'm honestly not too surprised by this.

Truly a network that loves us  :2hearts:

And the episode wasn't even on All Access until 4 AM EST - conversely, the Wednesday episode of Big Brother was there immediately after it aired. In fact - if you go to the CBS site right now to see "Episodes on Demand", amongst the row of "Trending Now" titles.... TAR is in the 5th row that you'd still have to scroll down to even see. Truly a good way to treat a show coming back that just premiered.

I also have it on good authority that there were quite a few people who didn't even know it was on. There were tweets of people saying "Oh TAR is tonight???".

Ratings are usually getting lower after premiere, so I am really scared for this show now, tbh.

This would never have happened if we just aired on a network that cherished and supported us.

TAR30 got the show its highest ratings since TAR23 in 2018 and what do they do after that? Film 31 and 32 in 2018. Dump 31 to borderline summer in 2019. Dump 32 in 2020 near the summer only to yank it and air it in Fall. Film 33 in 2020 when they had all of 2019 to do so. Barely promote TAR32. Not even have the show on your own streaming service by yanking the episodes after the season ended.

In a "perfect TAR world", we got TAR31 in late 2018, 32 in early 2019, had TAR33 and 34 filmed in 2019 with 33 airing in fall 2019, 24 in early 2020, and TAR35 was our season that would have gotten unfortunately suspended.

Instead here we are, potentially 2 seasons behind what we could have gotten and at risk of getting no more.

Very well said, if CBS just treated TAR properly, the ratings would have been better. I'm surprised and a little worried. Hope the DVR ratings are good. If they properly stuck with proper airing times and kept with the momentum of S.30, then it would have been better. They started this with S.29 and it has become a precedent in succeeding seasons.
THEY'RE KILLING A SHOW THAT SHOULD NOT GET THE AXE!!!!
They messed up TAR 32 with their long wait time to air, lack of marketing, changing airing times from summer to fall.

One thing to keep in mind. Broadcast networks ratings have been in decline for years, and networks are far more interested in Live plus seven and live plus 30 than in overnights. But y’all persist in worshipping overnight numbers as if they’re engraved in gold. Hint: They’re not.
TAR has a lot of other things going for it, including near simultaneous broadcasting in Canada, Australia, and other places. And this is election season. They may have been local stations that pre-emoted TAR and BB last night for debates. And my local CBS station preempted the live Thursday BB eviction episode tonight.

Live can be a big deal irregardless - the fact that a well established brand like TAR did POORLY in the face of a new show like I Can See Your Voice, where FOX normally has a lower general viewerbase, is definitely not good.

That's so depressing to think that we could have had 35 seasons by now if CBS didn't treat TAR like trash. I truly don't understand the logic some of the CBS execs have made. After TAR30's outstanding ratings, they went out and filmed two seasons in 2018. But then for some reason held them for one year, and then two years, respectively...? What...?!

And I get some people don't think that the overnight ratings mean all that much, which is somewhat true. But the fact of the matter is: premiere episodes are usually some of most highest rated of an entire season. The fact that this premiere started off so low, along with having the lowest viewership of any TAR episode ever, is extremely concerning because it's probably only downhill from here. Even when the show moves to 8/7c after Big Brother is over, it'll compete directly against The Masked Singer which won't help at all.

This is even worse when you look at last year's premiere for 31 which at least got a 1.2 demo and almost 6 million viewers. Literally about ~half of the audience from last year's premiere did not tune into this year's premiere. Phil Keoghan's other show, Tough as Nails, literally had higher viewership (over 4 million viewers) tune into the premiere that aired this past summer. When Tough as Nails, a much cheaper show that even aired in the SUMMER, had higher viewership than Amazing Race did, then you know we're in trouble.

EDIT: Not only did Tough as Nails premiere have higher viewership then this premiere episode of TAR, but Game On! did as well. Remember Game On!? The show that replaced TAR when it was moved off the schedule at the end of May? Yeah, that premiere had over 4 million viewers too AND even tied the 0.7 demo that TAR got. An in-studio, easy-to-film, low cost gameshow beat/tied a high budget difficult-to-film-due to COVID show. This... is not good. 💀

Tough as Nails and Game On aired at 8pm did they not? For TAR 8pm versus 9pm makes a big difference in live viewership. That was true a couple of seasons back when the first half of the season aired at 8pm, then ratings dropped when it was moved back an hour to 9 pm. So that’s been a persistent pattern for years.
As I mentioned earlier, the ratings may have been affected by local preemptions due to political debates. There’s no way to know offhand, or when the episode was delayed to.

That can also be a factor.

This is very true! But I also think; looking back at TAR ratings the last few years, historically, the premiere episode is usually one of, if not, the highest rated of the entire season. So despite it airing at 9/8c instead of 8/7c, I still think it should have done at least somewhat better than it actually did. Plus, like I said, even when it does move to the earlier hour after Big Brother is over, it'll compete against FOX's The Masked Singer which will also be tough competition to beat.

Some thoughts and responses, from someone who has followed the TV industry for years.

"CBS didn't advertise the show enough"

People have to be watching CBS for ads to be effective. No one is watching CBS, or any of the broadcast networks, right now because they are a cesspool of reruns, game shows, leftovers from other networks/streamers, and a few reality shows. That 0.7 rating is still better than anything CBS has run in the past month besides Big Brother. Broadcast ratings are at catastrophic levels. I was reading about this just a week or two ago, and this summer has accelerated the fall of the broadcast networks by several years (and they were falling considerably already). With Hollywood shut down and no TV shows on the networks, more and more cut the cord and are switching to streaming. The one platform that CBS still has to advertise things is the NFL, and I DID see ads for TAR over the weekend when I was watching football. That shows that they did try to advertise it on their biggest available platform.

"CBS hates the show/treats us like trash"

Look, it's unfortunate that the 2 seasons filmed in 2018 took so long to air. But they have been candid about this: they know their big 3 reality shows have been around forever, and they've been desperate to find some new hits. That is what cost us the January time slot last year, when they were trying flops like The World's Best and Million Dollar Mile. They know that TAR is a steady performer and will do ok wherever they put it. But they have to take risks to try to find the next big hits, and TAR was the one to play backup to the ones that didn't work out. If CBS hated the show, they wouldn't have left us alone on Sundays for nearly a decade. They only started moving it when the ratings started seeing significant declines around season 23/24.

I also think it's worth reminding that when the show got the green light to film twice in 2018, it was under the old regime. That was back when Les Moonves was still head of CBS, before his sexual harassment scandal, and also before CBS merged with Viacom. It's entirely possible that the old regime was more onboard with the frequency of TAR and would have aired the seasons sooner, while the new regime under Viacom doesn't find the expense vs. results to be worth it as much. A show like the Race also doesn't make as much over the years as their dramas that they fully own like the NCIS series. It's more lucrative for them to try to find new dramas to get multiple seasons of, even if they get less ratings than TAR, because they will make more in the long run with shows they fully own. Even still, we're at season 32, and would have had 33 if not for world events. They still believe in the show enough to keep it around.

Maybe not after this season if it keeps sinking, which unfortunately looks likely. As mentioned, Masked Singer is strong, strong competition and if it moves to 8 it might do even worse.

IMO
I hate this whole TV industry stuff. The new merger and management is doing TAR no good.
I'd keep TAR over those dramas which are mostly of the same theme.
Getting tired of these singing shows and crime-related dramas.
I want my TAR & Survivor to carry on.

It is definitely a cause of concern and the fact that this season is likely to join 31/30's fate of being shelved off All Access immediately after the finale while continuing to plummet (since, typically, ratings go down after premieres) means the show can just disappear without a blip.

At this point, I think we'd have done better if we just aired after Survivor as planned. Way back then, everyone was still at home. Now, despite broadcast TV taking a big hit, people, for better or worse, are working again and there is a relative "new normal". Not quite a captive audience anymore that initially led to ratings increases.

Final numbers for Leg 2 are in - steady at 0.7 but the total viewers are lower than Leg 1, which means it has overtaken the premiere for the title of lowest viewed live episode in TAR history.

If TAR gets axed. Thanks a lot CBS! You screwed it, what are you going to replace it with? Another boring singing show where the winners don’t even make it big in the industry? Or some saturated crime drama with plots that’s been beaten to death many times by other networks? JUST NO!!!

Where do we go to see the +7 day ratings for episodes? Would be interesting to see how much of an uptake we got on those ratings, as 3.58 seems remarkably low. I guess we should be telling everyone on here to go onto the CBS website and view, view, view those episodes on repeat and keep sharing online!

...which was shutdown mid-season after barely even completing three episodes due to COVID-19? They could easily look at the worldwide traveling conditions due to the pandemic, low ratings for this season, and ultimately say it's not worth finishing season 33 and cancelling the show. Obviously this is worst case scenario, but just because season 33 started does not mean it will finish, or even mean we'll get a season 34 and beyond, period... yet, at least.

Exactly. I understand that Live+3 and Live+7 are very important. But to say overnight ratings are irrelevant and pointless is an act of sheer folly.

Delayed numbers are not guarantees that the show will be fine. What if the delayed numbers aren't that great either?

As is, this is the lowest rated season in the show's entire lifespan by quite a margin. Furthermore, despite the fact that the World Series was on last night, Big Brother was the second highest rated show of the night with a 1.0 and 4.2 million viewers. Immediately after Big Brother ended, the numbers sank by a near million and 0.3 points.

This is not good.

That said, the true test will be November. Whether it continues going down even when more TV is coming back is the big question.

Maybe this will help those of you think overnight des/fast nationals have any significance now.

From TVLand’s post about fast nationals rationals for the five broadcast services:
Quote

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Not a doctor.

Keep in mind  it isn’t until live plus 7 and live plus 30, that services know how many eyeballs did watch on a delayed basis, or away from home..Those are the numbers that really count. And with the vast number of programming sources,  the live plus same day numbers aren’t going to reach 10 million/week.

Okay, look.
You're saying "here's proof overnight ratings hold no value," meanwhile the source you cite merely states "overnight ratings don't reflect everything".
Of course they don't. It's simply naive to ignore this massive red flag by saying "oh it'll turn orange with +7".

I also cannot wait to see the +whatever ratings for our premiere episode, but I'm not expecting an eighth wonder of the world.

For heaven's sake.

We should stay about 0.6 or above to hold steady.

For those of you whining CBS doesn't care? Get over it.  :groan:

CBS gave us OUR BEST TIME SLOT EVER  (wed at 8pm) starting next week.

There are MULTIPLE commercials running including during high cost times.

They are running the episodes on MANY platforms.

They have made the show available from midnight of the day for FREE on the CBS site itself.


They have re-invested in merchandize .

Doesn't care? Hah!! 


Instead of whining maybe go share on your own platforms some excitement. Repost the promos and publicity stiuff on FB and twitter and IG. Use stories.

PROMOTE the show yourselves . Be a POSITIVE help not a whiner.

Very well said Peach. I think re-investing in merchandise is huge, as it's all brand new merch,, and there hasn't been anything on the CBS store in at least 18 months. That costs a fair amount of money to get set up. I ordered a mug and a face mask.

If you want to support the show and don't have a Nielsen box, watch it on CBS.com (where they can easily track your viewership), buy merch from the store, and tweet a few times during the episode with #AmazingRace. Nielsen monitors and releases twitter data now to show which shows are trending. Griping about it here doesn't accomplish anything.

Preliminary ratings in - TAR actually got more viewers moving to 8 PM (got all the way up to 4 million), but we're still "steady" at 0.7. In terms of raw viewers, TAR is actually the 3rd most viewed show of the night in terms of raw viewers, but it lags behind because other shows performed better despite having less of a base. So TAR actually got more viewers than Big Brother, but Big Brother got more 18-49ers which is the more important thing and rating.

TL;DR for CBS - TAR got the boomers, Big Brother got the zoomers.

Getting over 4 million+ viewers is great for Amazing Race, especially considering it beat Big Brother's viewership. Unfortunately though, yeah, Amazing Race skews much older than Big Brother and a bunch of other shows, so despite having more viewers, we're still at just a 0.7 demo.

Being at the earlier hour + having some potential Big Brother finale pre-tune, I think this is likely going to be one of highest, if not, the one highest rated episode all season long. I think, especially with Big Brother done now, chances are we might be going downhill from here.

I think what is most concerning is the fact that, the night before, on Tuesday; CBS aired a Price Is Right primetime special which got OVER 5 million viewers and a 0.8 demo (!!!). If a show like Price Is Right, which is much cheaper to produce than Amazing Race, is getting that much higher viewership/a better demo, then that's simply just... yikes. It's a very bad look for Amazing Race.

So basically... in my opinion, we're not doing exceptionally well. But we're not doing awful either. These types of ratings aren't going to suddenly make CBS want to do two seasons a year again. But if we stick to 0.7s, or at minimum 0.6's, throughout the rest of the season, it could hopefully be just enough to get by. Anything lower than that though, and I would start to worry. So basically, in other words, SPREAD THE WORD and try to WATCH LIVE!  :tup:

The ratings was only 127,000 viewers, but what do they expect when they put the show on late at night? :res:  :groan:. People who are committed fans would of watched the show already and a "family" show should not be aired at 10:06pm-11:07pm at night!

Plus if you are already a serious fan you have found other ways to watch.

If we are going to do this there cannot be a delay. It needs to air in real time  based on US showings...as in the SAME DAY.

No data present for the premiere, but apparently TAR32 Leg 2 was CBS's highest gainer for DVR ratings for that week. From a 0.7 with 3.3 million viewers to a 1.1 with 4.93 million viewers.

Here's hoping it somehow remains steady if we can't go up. Might be enough to keep the show in limbo for a season post-COVID.

Here to sum up this week's ratings.

TAR32 Episode 4 was steady at a 0.7 with 4.03 million viewers. It finished 3rd in its timeslot.

Now here's the interesting thing. Immediately after Episode 4, the SWAT rerun sank hard to a 0.3 with 1.64 million viewers. The fact that the timeslot after immediately just PLUMMETED speaks a lot of how CBS fumbled this. More than 2 million viewers dropped, just like that, and never came back, even when it was actual Election coverage already. CBS actually finished dead last out of all the News Specials. Essentially what I'm getting at here is I hope we remain steady or improve throughout the season, scheduling shenanigans be damned.

I've been checking ratings this week with broadcast TV returning, and TAR is actually on the upper end of TV shows that aired this week. That 0.7 is even more impressive considering that TAR was up against season premieres of ABC family sitcoms and The Masked Singer, which is currently the #1 show on broadcast.

Keep hope alive, maybe this show will get a Non Elimination Leg after all  :conf:

Thanks gamer.

It was not a good decision for sure.

I understand the News Team wanting to have the 10 PM hour.

Perhaps CBS was concerned that the 9PM episode was at high risk of interupptions, hence the rerun instead. Could have been a PROTECTIVE move for Ep 5.

In any case, hpefully next week will go smoothly!

Episode 5 was 0.7 once again. A big drop from 4.03 to 3.72 :(

A lot of people have been commenting on social media that the show didn't record for them for some reason, so the DVR +7 may not be spectacular this week.

Checked last week's ratings for CBS and surprisingly, TAR is actually CBS's third highest rated show of the week. It's tied with the NCIS Los Angeles premiere for being the second most watched show for the network demo-wise (0.7).

We'll have to see how this week goes.

I wouldn't be too surprised. For a while, 15 or 20 years back, San Francisco had 2 ABC stations and no NBC station until one of the ABC stations switched to NBC. However, this list at Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_United_States_television_markets has CBS with an affiliate in each of the top 200 US markets, so that's pretty much everywhere. There are probably remote areas with no over the air signals, but most people use cable, satellite and streaming services, so CBS is really available everywhere if you want it.

A new low. TAR was 3rd in its timeslot for the 8 PM episode (0.7 with 3.72 million viewers, exactly on par with last week), but at 9 PM it just sunk to a 0.5 with barely over 3 million viewers.

This is the lowest rated episode in TAR history. The FOX block of Masked Singer-See Your Voice and NBC's Chicago shows just crushed us.

Really discouraging, not gonna lie. But I'm sure I'll be corrected once more about how its about DVR, etc. etc. etc. :)

I actually do have a correction, but it's not about DVR numbers or whatever. The, umm, 8pm episode was actually at a 0.6... not a 0.7 💀 Soo, yeah

EDIT: Looks like we adjusted up to 0.7/0.6 at least! Yay?!

No one has mentioned this yet, so I think it needs to be said. Ratings all across television are down since March. I'm sure everyone understands why. People aren't focusing as much lately on watching television. Being up against election coverage for a number of episodes will not help raw numbers either. What's important is how the show does compared to those in its time-slot, and other shows across the networks for the week.

A very heavy part of it is the competition being absent (NBC's Chicago + FOX's Masked Singer), but TAR won the night for CBS this week  :conf: It's not great objectively, but it's a good thing it won the night for sure.

0.6 for both episodes, with 3.94 million viewers moving down to 3.56 million viewers for the second half.

Ratings are expected to be low on Wednesday night for Holiday travel.  It used to be considered dead air time, and almost no one broadcast anything new (unless the show was already cancelled and the network was just using up episodes that they already had in the can).  But once stores started opening on Thanksgiving, or even midnight for Black Friday, networks would start airing some programming as ad buyers would pay premium dollars for national based sale pros to drive people into the store.  TAR did solid and probably earned more ad dollars this week than a normal week.

Yes, currently CBS reaches over the air 93% of the nations population.  Back ten years ago it was 99%.  This decline is true of all broadcasters.  Though the CW has even less coverage I think its currently at 87%.  Those percentages of course don't account for online viewing options.

Final ratings for last Wednesday's double episodes in India have just come in. 0.6/0.6 in the key adults 18-49 demo and 4.20m/3.80m in total viewers. That first India episode at 4.20m is actually a SEASON HIGH in total viewers.

In fact, that first Amazing Race episode at 8pm adjusted up from the preliminary ratings in the demos of adults 18-34 by +0.1, adults 25-54 by +0.1, AND overall viewers by almost ~300k... yet it unfortunately didn't adjust up in adults 18-49, which is the key demo. It's the first episode this season to only get a 0.6 at 8pm.

An episode earlier in the season that literally got around ~1m viewers LESS than last Wednesday's episode still got a 0.7, but yet the highest viewed episode of the season only got a 0.6. That's very... strange. So basically we have very good news with having a season high in total viewers... but kinda bad news that we're as low as a 0.6 in adults 18-49 at 8pm, especially on an episode that was our highest rated in total viewers.

So not sure how to feel about that, these ratings results are really strange.

Thanksgiving Eve does explain a lot. In past seasons, that week would have been skipped. But television scheduling is simply insane due to the pandemic, especially when you consider a regular season NFL will air on NBC on a late Wednesday afternoon in December.

No, the finale is on December 16th. There is a two hour episode tonight though, where they are cutting the field from six to three.

Good news!

We hit another SEASON HIGH in total viewership this past episode with over 4.3 million people tuning in live. We also rose from three episodes in a row at a 0.6 back up to a 0.7 in the key adults 18-49 demo, matching our season high we hit for the first six episodes in a row there.

Though it's not anywhere near what FOX's The Masked Singer or even NBC's Christmas Tree Lighting Special did, it's still good to see that we are setting new season highs in total viewers, and back to tying current season highs in the demo.

Let's hope our final two episodes can keep up the momentum and stay above 4 million viewers and a 0.7 demo, and maybe even grow to hit over 4.5 million viewers and a 0.8 demo!

So CBS took the night! But TAR was 3rd? Good news or bad lol?

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/ratings/2020/12/10/wednesdays-broadcast-ratings-


CBS (4.060 million viewers, #1; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T2) was the most-watched network with its trio of "The Amazing Race 32" (4.027 million viewers, #3; adults 18-49: 0.7, #T3), "SEAL Team" (4.342 million viewers, #2; adults 18-49: 0.6, #T5) and "S.W.A.T." (3.809 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.5, #7).

(3.809 million viewers, #5; adults 18-49: 0.5, #7).

It's pretty good! Honestly, just staying above 4m+ viewers and a 0.7 demo is good enough. The couple things of note were: The Great Christmas Light Fight on ABC tied TAR's demo with a 0.7 as well, which isn't a bad thing for TAR per say, but moreso a really good thing for GCLF. That show is super cheap to make and doing that high ratings to tie TAR with? That's really impressive on their part and may slightly have TAR not look us impressive. But still, sticking to a 0.7 is good enough. The other thing to note is that SEAL Team, which aired right after TAR, actually had about 300k MORE viewers than TAR did, but a lower demo at 0.6. So basically, TAR had the younger audience (which ad buyers love) but SEAL Team had more viewers (though they were a lot older). This, once again, is not bad for TAR per say, but it just makes SEAL Team look a LOT better by comparison that it was able to grow 300k+ viewers from it's lead-in.

So basically, the story of the night is, TAR did decently good. It doesn't look bad. Though some of it's competition/other shows that came after it, all look really good (or maybe even slightly better) by comparison as well.

For our finale, let's just hope we stick with over 4m+ viewers and hold that 0.7 demo. Like I said last week, if we somehow get to over 4.5m+ viewers and 0.8 demo for the finale, then that'll be even better and I'm sure CBS would be really happy with that. Though with the reception from a lot of the fans from this most recent episode, let's just hope ratings don't crash for this finale instead.

Survivor and Big Brother do appear to be doing better overall. So something for The Amazing Race to consider - let's go back to the roots! But I am glad with the rise in viewers of the last couple of legs and also notice the DVR ratings +7 days are pushing us to 5.5M which isn't too bad. Remaining hopeful, but not sure we are likely to see a return to two seasons airing a year?

We will not return to two season airing in a year, we will be lucky if TAR will not get cancelled. TAR will stay mid-season replacement airing once every 1/1.5 year at best.

Despite being up against the Masked Singer finale, TAR32 had a 0.8 with 4.32 million viewers, the highest of the season! Assuming it doesn't adjust down this is the FIRST time since TAR19 where the finale is the highest rated and most viewed episode of the season. Also the most viewers tuning in to a TAR finale since TAR28.

That is quite incredible!! Especially given how lackluster the finale leg/episode was.
I definitely did not expect this, thought we'd be at 3.5m and a 0.6. Great news!!

Final ratings are in! 4.46m viewers and the 0.8 demo in adults 18-49 held!

Hitting a season high and, as gamer said, having the highest total viewership for a season finale in over four years since TAR28 is great news! :conf:

Can't believe I'm saying this about a TAR finale but...crud. Was actually hoping for a season low, so production would have more motivation to throw in some rules some next season to stem this kind of gameplay from happening again.

Does it still count as a viewer if someone only tunes into the last 5 minutes?

I'm guessing because it was a New Orleans leg, people who have a personal connection to the locale decided to see what this was all about. Finales always tend to do better than midseason episodes. I know when the Race came back to Chicago for season 29, CBS Local morning and evening news were promoting it the day of that finale.

Really pleased about the finale reaching a 0.8 and 4.5 million before DVR+7. I think that is a highly positive sign for the future. Nonetheless, the race is still behind Big Brother and Survivor in terms of their reality juggernauts, and I think part of that has been the constant changing of the format. We want ordinary people and a diversity of age, ethnicity and background.

I don't agree that this rating high will stop producers from seeing the fan comments all across on social media about the excessive amount of Yield/U-Turns and the alliance issues. I am sure they will try to work something out on both ends. I enjoyed the finale a great deal, but don't disagree that there should have been some sort of memory challenge or more difficult task. Still thoroughly enjoyed the route and cast overall, and having had the privilege of following the teams for the first leg of Season 33 and the beginning of leg two, I think it looked fairly strong too.

As always, I remain positive.

Now that the week is essentially over, we can now confirm that the season finale of The Amazing Race hitting a 0.8 makes it the HIGHEST rated show in the demo on CBS all week. We are officially the #1 show on CBS!

For some reason, CBS seems to hate TAR but hopefully with this good ratings news, it'll makes them more willing to resume TAR33 when it's safe to do so and air it ASAP instead of holding onto it for over a year?

https://deadline.com/2021/05/tv-ratings-2019-2021-final-rankings-nfl-ncis-masked-singer-cbs-fox-1234764734/ TAR32 checked in with a 1.1 rating (18-49 yr old), tied for 31st of all the broadcast networks in the television season, which runs from September - May. It tied with other established shows like The Voice, American Idol, and The Good Doctor. It did not crack the top 40 in viewers.

Given the same-day ratings if I recall were always around 0.7/0.8, you can now get an idea of how many viewers are watching it later, such as On Demand or on the DVR.
