Weekly Broadcast Ratings: ABC Wednesday Falls, but Tuesday Rises in Week 6

ABC's Wednesday comedy line-up saw concerning week-to-week-declines for the week ending November 4, 2018. 'Modern Family' and 'The Goldbergs' each lost three tenths in unrounded ratings  from last week's finals, 'American Housewife' lost two tenths, and 'Single Parents' lost a tenth (0.14 unrounded).

Best of the Week:
NBC's 'Sunday Night Football' (7.47, 23.75 million) saw the largest week-to-gains, rising 67% from last week (4.48, 14.14 million). Over at CBS, '60 Minutes' (1.14, 9.86 million) was up 48%, 'Hawaii Five-0' (0.88, 7.88 million) rose 26%, and 'MacGyver' (0.78, 6.07 million) saw a 22% lift. The story of the week; however, was ABC Tuesday. All four comedies on the night grew week-to-week. 'Splitting Up Together' (0.88, 3.29 million) had the best gain of the night, up 31% from last week; just behind it was 'black-ish' (1.13, 4.22 million) at 25%, and 'The Kids Are Alright' (1.27, 5.39 million) at 20%. In raw unrounded ratings, each of the shows rose by 0.2. 'The Connors' (1.80, 7.83 million) rose only 3.5%, but was already pulling huge numbers. The week's other big gain belonged to the CW's 'Legacies' (0.37, 1.12 million) which ticked up 27%.

Worst of the Week:
ABC's Wednesday comedy block was polar opposite from its Tuesday comedy block. All four Wednesday comedies saw notable decreases from last week. Lead-off 'The Goldbergs' (0.99, 4.79 million) dropped 24% from last week to a new series-low - the first time it ever fell below a 1.0 in the demo. 'American Housewife' (0.87, 4.14 million) fell 20% and 'Modern Family' (1.22, 5.01 million) was down 18%, both to series-lows. 'Single Parents' (0.91, 3.65 million) lost only 13% week-to-week; however, it was still a new low for the young show. Ending the night was 'A Million Little Things' (0.79, 3.31 million) which was down 5% from last week, but narrowly avoided hitting a new low (current low is 0.77). Other notable declines include the CW's 'Black Lightning' (0.31, 972,000) which dropped 16% to a new low.

A number of shows demonstrated remarkable week-to-week retention, averaging the same unrounded 18-49 rating this week as they did last week. On CBS Monday, comedy 'The Neighborhood' (1.14, 6.11 million) held last week's figures, and lead-out 'Happy Together' (0.86, 4.38 million) rose 0.01. On NBC, both 'Midnight, Texas' (0.39, 1.99 million) and 'Will & Grace' (0.85, 3.45 million) saw zero growth in the demo, as did ABC's 'The Rookie' (0.83, 4.53 million), FOX's 'The Resident' (0.98, 4.97 million), and the CW's 'Supergirl' (0.37, 1.23 million) & 'Legends of Tomorrow' (0.32, 943,000).
