Sunday TV Ratings 10/30/22: Bob’s Burgers, The Great North and Family Guy Hit New Highs with Halloween Episodes, The Simpsons Also Rises for Treehouse of Horror, Celebrity Jeopardy Slides, East New York Rises in Special Timeslot (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: The NFL overrun (6.46/3.02) was prevalent on Fox for another week and helped 'The Simpsons' (1.29, +0.15) grow significantly for its annual Treehouse of Horror episode. 'The Great North' (0.68, +0.08) also climbed to its highest rating since the premiere. In the 9PM hour, 'Bob's Burgers' (0.59, +0.10) and 'Family Guy' (0.53, +0.11) were boosted to new season highs for their respective Halloween-themed installments. On ABC, 'Toy Story of Terror!' (0.26) and a rerun of 'The Conners' (0.14) completely underwhelmed in the 7PM hour. That caused 'Celebrity Jeopardy!' (0.34, -0.13) to crash to a new series low and also had a negative effect on 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (0.34, -0.04) and 'The Rookie' (0.28, -0.07). CBS's 'East New York' (0.49, +0.12) got to air directly behind '60 Minutes' (0.68, +0.07) and surged as a result. 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.45, +0.11) climbed to a new season high at 9 and led into a rerun of 'Fire Country' (0.23). The 'Packers v. Bills' NFL game (5.36) was nearly a full ratings point higher than last week's 'Steelers v. Dolphins' matchup (4.38) on NBC. The CW's 'Family Law' (0.05, +0.02) picked up two-hundredths while 'Coroner' (0.02, -0.01) ticked down.

Finals Update: 'NFL Overrun' (+3.7), 'The OT' (+0.8), 'The Simpsons' (+0.1), '60 Minutes' (+0.1), 'Toy Story of Terror' (+0.1), and 'NFL: Packers v. Bills' (+1.2) adjusted up. 'Football Night In America' (-0.7) adjusted down.

Saturday TV Ratings 10/29/22: Saturday Night Live Hits Season High, World Series Slips on Night 2, College Football Strong (UPDATED)

 

Ratings Analysis: Game 2 of the '2022 World Series' (2.42, -0.43) was a little over 15% lower than Friday's opening game (2.85) but still gave Fox a comfortable win on Saturday night. ABC's 'MI St. v. MI' college football game (1.30) was solid in its own right but settled for second place in the 8PM hour. On NBC, a Jack Harlow-hosted 'Saturday Night Live' (0.75, +0.09) posted a higher rating than every other episode from this season. Earlier in the night, reruns of 'Password' (0.12), 'Dateline' (0.18), and 'SNL Vintage' (0.21) were abysmal. CBS had a feeble 'NWSL Soccer Championship' (0.23) and an anemic 10:30PM 'Young Sheldon' rerun (0.06). On the CW, 'Criss Angel's Magic with the Stars' (0.04, -0.01) and 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.04, -0.02) trickled down. 

Finals Update: '2022 World Series Game 2' (+0.7) and 'College Football: MI St. v. MI' (+0.2) adjusted up. The repeat of 'Young Sheldon' (-0.1) adjusted down.

FOX Renew/Cancel Week 6: ’The Resident’ Is Still In Stable Condition


 Predictions for 10/29/22

Photo Credit: Fox

Below are the latest renew/cancel predictions for the Fox network in the 2022-23 television season. The numbers listed in the table mark the Nielsen rating low, average, and high for each respective program in the Adults 18-49 demographic. Since the last update, 'The Resident', 'Call Me Kat', and 'Welcome To Flatch' have all posted new season highs. Only scripted programming will be taken into account in this column. 



The Resident: 'The Resident' just aired its 100th episode on the Fox network and climbed to a new season high in the process. This serves as a major milestone for a series that often finds itself in the middle of the pack in terms of Nielsen ratings. The 0.38 rating that the medical drama garnered on October 25th may not seem like much, but it was enough to make it the fourth highest-rated broadcast of the evening (only behind juggernauts like 'Bachelor in Paradise', 'FBI', and 'The Voice'). It's hard to imagine that a Fox drama outside of '9-1-1' (or its spinoff series '9-1-1: Lone Star') could perform this well against such stiff competition. This Amy Holden Jones creation is Likely to be Renewed as usual. 


Call Me Kat: On October 24, comedian and actor Leslie Jordan sadly passed away in a car accident while on his way to film scenes for 'Call Me Kat'. Jordan played the character "Phil" in the Mayim Bialik sitcom and has been in every episode since the program's start. Production for 'Call Me Kat'  reportedly stopped for the time being and it is currently unknown when it will resume. Seemingly as a result of what happened, 'Kat' surged to a 0.27 Nielsen rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic on the 27th. The comedy improved by nearly 30% from its 'Welcome To Flatch' lead-in and boasted a staggering 50% week-to-week increase. Nonetheless, it is still unlikely that 'Kat' will be back for season four. The death of a series regular does not bode well for the future of any program and the sudden growth is almost certainly due to the media attention surrounding Jordan's death. As the weeks progress, these new viewers will probably lose interest and the series will sink back to its normal level. 'Kat' is Likely to be Canceled as of October 29, 2022.


Welcome To Flatch: 'Call Me Kat' and 'The Resident' were not the only shows to hit a new season high this week. Struggling sitcom 'Welcome To Flatch' grew to a 0.21 on October 27th and tied its highest rating of all time. That sounds quite impressive due to the semantics, but this remains an extremely poor performance for a series on a big 4 network. Its 'Hell's Kitchen' lead-in (0.46) also soared to a new high at 8, meaning 'Flatch' retained a meager 45% of the Gordon Ramsay staple. 'Flatch' is once again Likely to be Canceled and has now fallen behind 'Kat' to become the lowest-rated program on the Fox network (Flatch has a 0.186 average that rounds up to a 0.19 while 'Kat' has grown to a 0.194).

Friday TV Ratings 10/28/22: Matthew Perry Interview Performs Well, World Series Opens Up from 2021, College Bowl Ends Down (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Diane Sawyer's interview with Matthew Perry (0.47) performed well enough on ABC and gave the 9PM '20/20' (0.38, +0.10) a noticeable boost. To put things into perspective, the Sawyer-Perry interview was only a hundredth shy of the week-ago 'Shark Tank' (0.48). On Fox, game one of the '2022 World Series' (2.85) was about 13% higher than the first game of 2021 (2.52) in the Adults 18-49 demographic. NBC's 'Capital One College Bowl' (0.22/0.21) dipped for its finale and led into a sinking 'Dateline' (0.26, -0.08). 'College Bowl' trailed its week-ago rating (0.24) but avoided hitting a new low. 'SWAT' (0.41, +0.01) and 'Fire Country' (0.47, +0.02) grew by a touch on CBS while 'Blue Bloods' (0.41, -0.04) dealt with a mild decline in the 10PM hour. 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.06, -0.03) and 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?' (0.05, -0.05) crumbled on the CW.

Finals Update: '2022 World Series Game 1' (+0.6), 'Matthew Perry: The Diane Sawyer Interview' (+0.1), 'Fire Country' (+0.1), and 'Dateline NBC' (+0.1) adjusted up.

The Real Love Boat Officially Decommissioned by CBS, Will Now Set Sail at Paramount+


After hitting a ratings iceberg, The Real Love Boat has officially been put out of commission. It has been pulled from CBS's schedule after only four episodes, the first series this season to have this fate befall it. The dating reality series has been a beyond-embarrassing performer for CBS, ranking as the third-lowest-rated Big Four series while airing behind TV's #1 show, Survivor (not counting NFl-inflated episodes of 60 Minutes and The Simpsons). Its 0.24 average was a tenth below the average of The Amazing Race, which aired as TRLB's 10 PM lead-out. Hosted by Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn, the series will air out the remaining episodes in a weekly basis on Paramount+, the streamer that shares a parent company with CBS and is the exclusive next-day streaming home to all CBS series. CBS will now move The Amazing Race to 9 PM, with drama repeats airing at 10.

Thursday TV Ratings 10/27/22: Call Me Kat Hits Season High Following Death of Leslie Jordan, Station 19 and Alaska Daily Rise from Lows, Law & Order Slightly Up After Week Off (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: 'Hell's Kitchen' (0.46, +0.08), 'Welcome To Flatch' (0.21, +0.04), and 'Call Me Kat' (0.27, +0.09) all exploded to new season highs on Fox. 'Kat' pulled off the strongest surge of the three, growing by close to a full tenth for its first episode since the passing of cast member Leslie Jordan. NBC's 'Law & Order' (0.48, +0.01) picked up a hundredth after taking last week off. 'Law & Order: SVU' (0.56, -0.03) and 'Law & Order: Organized Crime' (0.45, -0.05) failed to rise alongside the mothership. 'Station 19' (0.53, +0.09) and 'Alaska Daily' (0.26, +0.05) rebounded on ABC while 'Grey's Anatomy' (0.46, -0.03) slipped to a new series low. CBS's 'Young Sheldon' (0.56, +0.01), 'Ghosts' (0.53, +0.02), and 'So Help Me Todd' (0.33, +0.01) all grew by minor amounts. 'CSI: Vegas' (0.28, -0.02) went in the opposite direction. 'Walker' (0.07, -0.01) and 'Walker: Independence' (0.04, -0.01) each shed a hundredth on the CW.

Finals Update: 'Young Sheldon' (+0.1), 'Law & Order: SVU' (+0.1), and 'Law & Order' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'Welcome to Flatch' (-0.1) adjusted down.

Wednesday TV Ratings 10/26/22: The Conners, The Goldbergs, Abbott Elementary, and Home Economics All Rise for Halloween Episodes, The Masked Singer Rebounds, Real Love Boat Sinks Further (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Season highs were prevalent on ABC as 'The Conners' (0.56, +0.05), 'Home Economics' (0.39, +0.03), and 'Big Sky' (0.31, +0.08) all rose to their strongest ratings of Fall 2022. 'The Goldbergs' (0.41, +0.02) and 'Abbott Elementary' (0.55, +0.07) also shot up for their Halloween-themed episodes but fell short of new high territory. Fox's 'The Masked Singer' (0.72, +0.33) similarly surged to its highest rating of the season after crashing to an alarming low on the 19th (0.39). At 9,  'LEGO Masters' (0.43, +0.16) shot up to its best showing in over a year. CBS's 'Survivor' (0.76, +0.09) and 'The Amazing Race' (0.30, +0.03) were both on the rise. Sandwiched in-between those staples, 'The Real Love Boat' (0.19, -0.07) sank to an egregious new low. NBC reruns of 'Chicago Med' (0.32), 'Chicago Fire' (0.37), and 'Chicago PD' (0.31) all outpaced the back-half of CBS's lineup. 'Stargirl' (0.09, 0.00) and 'Kung Fu' (0.06, 0.00) were steady on the CW.

Finals Update: 'Survivor' (+0.1), 'The Masked Singer' (+0.1), and 'The Conners' (+0.1) adjusted up.

Nancy Drew Ending After Four Seasons

The CW programming purge continues, as the network has announced that the midseason-bound fourth season of Nancy Drew will also be its final season. The series has always been a poor performer for The CW, and its days certainly looked numbered when a slew of CW shows were canceled last season. Though it managed to escape the cut, having been party of the mass renewal earlier in the season, the cut made it clear that The CW was no longer going to drag out aging, low-rated veterans for as long as they please anymore. Nancy Drew ranked as The CW's second-lowest-rated in-season scripted program last season with just a 0.05 average, below numerous canceled series. Its streaming performance, however, was what set it apart from that pack, and is what will now allow the show to get a pre-announced ending. The fourth season is currently in production, which should allow the creative team to give the show the closure that many other CW shows did not receive. Kennedy McMann, Leah Lewis, Maddison Jaizani and Scott Wolf star in the series.

Tuesday TV Ratings 10/25/22: Bachelor in Paradise Tops the Night, The Resident Hits Season High for 100th Episode, The Rookie: Feds Back Down (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Fox drama 'The Resident' (0.38, +0.07) soared to a new season high for its 100th episode, but struggling freshman 'Monarch' (0.21, +0.01) only managed to gain a hundredth. On ABC, 'Bachelor in Paradise' (0.63) was nearly a full tenth higher than last week (0.55), but that did not stop 'The Rookie: Feds' (0.24, -0.05) from sinking in the 10PM hour. 'The Voice' (0.62, +0.02) and 'La Brea' (0.35, +0.03) burned brighter on NBC while 'New Amsterdam' (0.27, -0.01) lost a tick. CBS's reruns of 'FBI' (0.41), 'FBI: International' (0.35), and 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.29) were strong enough to be competitive with the first-run broadcasts of the night. 'The Winchesters' (0.09, +0.02) and 'Professionals' (0.05, +0.01) grew on the CW.

Finals Update: 'The Resident' (+0.1) adjusted up.

Monday TV Ratings 10/24/22: The Neighborhood, 9-1-1, and Bob Hearts Abishola Hit Season Highs, Bachelor in Paradise Also Rises, The Voice Slips (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: CBS shows 'The Neighborhood' (0.63, +0.04), 'Bob Hearts Abishola' (0.46, +0.02), and 'NCIS' (0.53, +0.07) all rose to new season highs. 'NCIS: Hawai'i' (0.36, -0.02) was the odd one out in this lineup and slipped a little further. Fox's '9-1-1' (0.69, +0.06) tied its previous high that was set on season premiere night. At 9, 'The Cleaning Lady' (0.32, +0.05) rebounded a bit from last week's ugly new low. On ABC, 'Bachelor in Paradise' (0.58) was six-hundredths higher than last Monday, but 'The Good Doctor' (0.33, -0.01) shed a hundredth at 10. 'The Voice' (0.60, -0.10) and new drama 'Quantum Leap' (0.33, -0.02) shrunk in size on NBC. The CW's 'All American' (0.14, +0.01) and 'All: American: Homecoming' (0.13, +0.03) both climbed to their highest ratings of the season. 

Finals Update: '9-1-1' (+0.1), 'Bachelor in Paradise' (+0.1), 'Bob Hearts Abishola' (+0.1), and 'NCIS: Hawai'i' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'Quantum Leap' (-0.1) adjusted down.

Sunday TV Ratings 10/23/22: East New York Plunges to New Low as The Equalizer and NCIS: LA Also Slide, The Great North and Bob’s Burgers Trail Previous Post-NFL Ratings, Celebrity Jeopardy and The Rookie Inch Up (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Without the NFL around to lift them up, 'The Equalizer' (0.49, -0.30), 'East New York' (0.37, -0.19), and 'NCIS: Los Angeles' (0.34, -0.09) all crashed to new season lows on CBS. '60 Minutes' (0.61, -0.93) took the largest plunge of them all but avoided hitting a new low. On Fox, 'NFL Overrun' (5.54) and 'The OT' (2.86) helped 'The Simpsons' (1.14, +0.79) jump to its highest rating since the season premiere. 'The Great North' (0.60, +0.34), 'Bob's Burgers' (0.49, +0.20) and 'Family Guy' (0.42, +0.10) also shot up but all three trailed their previous football-boosted episodes. 'America's Funniest Home Videos' (0.42, +0.03), 'Celebrity Jeopardy!' (0.47, +0.07), 'Celebrity Wheel of Fortune' (0.38, +0.03), and 'The Rookie' (0.35, +0.02) all ticked up on ABC. This serves as a new season high for 'The Rookie' and a new series high for 'Celebrity Jeopardy!'. NBC's 'Steelers v. Dolphins' NFL game (4.38) was well below last week's 'Cowboys v. Eagles' matchup (5.89). 'Family Law' (0.03, -0.02) and 'Coroner' (0.03, -0.01) slipped on the CW. 

Finals Update: 'NFL Overrun' (+2.7), 'NFL: Steelers v. Dolphins' (+1.0), 'The OT' (+0.1), 'The Simpsons' (+0.1), 'Celebrity Jeopardy' (+0.1), and 'East New York' (+0.1) adjusted up. 'Football Night In America' (-0.6) and '60 Minutes' (-0.1) adjusted down.

Saturday TV Ratings 10/22/22: MLB Tops College Football and Leads the Night, Magic with the Stars Starts Low (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Fox's broadcast of the 'Padres v. Phillies' MLB game (1.37) was markedly stronger than ABC's 'MN v. Penn St.' college football game (0.77), thus leading the Fox network to another Saturday victory. On the CW, the series premiere of 'Criss Angel's Magic with the Stars' (0.05) failed to amaze and was bested by the return of 'World's Funniest Animals' (0.07/0.06). On CBS, 10PM staple '48 Hours' (0.17, -0.14) suffered a steep decline on a week-to-week basis. Much of this is because the reruns of 'So Help Me Todd' (0.19) and 'Hours' (0.13) that led into it were not NFL-inflated like last week's encores were. NBC went with reruns of 'Quantum Leap' (0.10), 'Dateline' (0.16), and 'SNL Vintage' (0.26).

Finals Update: 'MLB: Padres v. Phillies' (+0.5), 'College Football: MN V. Penn State' (+0.2), 'SNL Vintage' (+0.1), and the repeat of 'Dateline' (+0.1) adjusted up.

FOX Renew/Cancel Week 5: ’Bob’s Burgers’ Is Certain To Stay In Business

 

Predictions for 10/22/22

Photo Credit: Fox

Below are the latest renew/cancel predictions for the Fox network in the 2022-23 television season. The numbers listed in the table mark the Nielsen rating low, average, and high for each respective program in the Adults 18-49 demographic. Since the previous update, 'The Simpsons', 'The Great North', 'Bob's Burgers', 'Family Guy', 'The Cleaning Lady', 'The Resident', and 'Welcome To Flatch' have all posted new season lows. Only scripted programming will be taken into account in this column. 


Bob's Burgers: It goes without saying that 'Bob's Burgers' has defied the odds in a way few in Fox animation history have. The series seemed destined for an early death like almost every cartoon that was not 'The Simpsons' or a Seth MacFarlane creation. Instead, the Loren Bochard series just got a big-screen adaption and went into its 13th season with the distinction of being the 9PM anchor on Sunday nights. The fact that Fox has committed to giving it a plush, primetime timeslot after years of dumping it at 7:30 shows they truly see value in the program. Despite all that success, 'Bob's' has evidently been a much weaker performer than 'Family Guy' was at 9. Most recently, the sitcom fell to a meager 0.29 A18-49 rating and only improved by a few hundredths from 'The Great North. This rating ties its previous series low and is well below the level it was at last fall. 'Bob's' is still doing well enough to be Certain to be Renewedbut its current performance leaves much to be desired.


The Cleaning Lady: Just as it seemed to be stabilizing at a respectable level, 'The Cleaning Lady' crashed to a pitiful 0.27 rating for its October 17th episode. What makes this showing even more dreadful is that its '9-1-1' lead-in (0.63) actually rose by a considerable amount when compared to the week prior. Though 'The Cleaning Lady' is Likely to be Renewed, a downgrade is starting to become more conceivable if it does not recover in the coming weeks.

Friday TV Ratings 10/21/22: Shark Tank and Fire Country Slip, Whose Line Ticks Up, WWE SmackDown Remains First (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: Friday-night mainstays 'Shark Tank' (0.48, -0.03) and '20/20' (0.28, -0.08) declined on ABC and were unable to top their respective hours. Fox's 'WWE Smackdown' (0.52, -0.02) also slipped a bit but remained on top. On CBS, 'Fire Country' (0.45, -0.03) lost some steam in week three but was still well above its premiere rating (0.40) from two weeks prior. 'SWAT' (0.40, -0.03) dipped by the same amount as 'Fire' while 'Blue Bloods' (0.45, +0.02) inched up to a new season high at 10. On NBC, 'Capital One College Bowl' (0.24, +0.04) and 'Dateline' (0.34, +0.07) were on the rise. The CW's 'Penn & Teller: Fool Us' (0.09, +0.03) and 'Whose Line Is It Anyway?'

ABC Orders Full Season of The Rookie: Feds

Fall's new series continue to gain order extensions, as ABC has now granted a full season to one of its new series, The Rookie: Feds. The pickup is for a full twenty-two episodes, the first such pickup this season (NBC granted eighteen episodes to Quantum Leap while CBS is remaining mum on the episode counts for its three extended dramas). Feds has been a poor first-run ratings performer this season, with just a 0.29 average in the 18-49 ratings demographic. However, it has performed much better in played multi-platform viewing, matching its parent series as a strong performer in that metric. Its twenty-two episodes will lock down the troubled Tuesday at 10 time slot for ABC, which has yet to find a show to last more than two seasons in that slot (the last shows to survivor the slot, The Rookie and Big Sky, were both moved off the slot for their second seasons) in recent memory.
