Generally it takes several weeks for Live + 7 ratings to be released. I don't think Almost Human has even been on long enough yet to know whether it's performing well with DVR users, and even if we do have DVR numbers from those first two episodes (Nov 17-18), we don't have DVR numbers for any subsequent episodes, which are really the ones that matter.

Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

NOTE: Due to the nature of live programming the ratings for NBC & FOX (NFL Football & Overrun) are approximate and subject to more than the typical adjustments in the final numbers.

Note: Due to NFL football overrun, CBS prime started 27 minutes delayed in the following markets: Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington DC, Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis, Knoxville, Houston, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis. Ratings are subject to change.

NBC was number one among adults 18-49, and with total viewers.

On NBC Sunday Night Football, (Panthers-Saints) earned a preliminary 6.0, up from last week's preliminary 5.4 adults 18-49 rating.

On FOX, The Simpsons matched the 3.0 adults 18-49 rating it earned two weeks ago. Bob’s Burgers scored a 2.1, up half a ratings point from last week's 1.6 adults 18-49 rating. Family Guy notched a 2.6, up four tenths from a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating two weeks ago. American Dad garnered a 2.1, up four tenths from last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 rating

On CBS, 60 Minutes earned a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating down from last week's football inflated 3.9 adults 18-49 rating.The two hour season finale of The Amazing Race matched last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating, which is an all-time low for a finale. The Mentalist was even with last week's 1.7 adults 18-49 rating when the show aired after primetime.

On ABC, America’s Funniest Home Videos garnered a 1.5, up three tenths from last week's 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Once Upon A Time earned a 2.2, up three tenths from last week’s series low 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were too pessimistic!

I really like Almost Human. It's one of the few hour long dramas I watch immediately rather then building up a few episodes and watching in blocks. The only other shows I do this with are Homeland, Shameless, The Walking Dead and Game Of Thrones. Everything else I typically let 3+ episodes build up and then watch them all at once.

I happened to see a mention of Happy Endings again (I think I was on cnn on my phone and it was "an article you'd like to see" or somesuch).

Did Happy Endings get higher ratings than the shows that replaced it? I *think* so, but am not sure.

Comments from TVbytheNumbers:

CBS was number one with adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

Note: Last nights Thursday Night football game was simulcast on the CBS affiliates in Denver and San Diego. As a result CBS ratings may be inflated and subject to more than typical adjustments.

Note: Adults 18-49 usage was down -6% from 8-10pm and -6% from 8-11pm last night vs last week.

On NBC, The Sing-Off earned a 1.4 down 22 percent from Wednesday’s 1.8 adults 18-49 rating. Sean Saves the World scored a 1.0 adults 18-49 rating up 11 percent from a 0.9 on November 21. The Michael J. Fox Show matched the 0.9 adults 18-49 rating of its most recent episode on November 21. Parenthood matched November 17’s 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

On CBS, The Big Bang Theory earned a 5.3 up 10 percent from last week's 4.8 adults 18-49 rating. The Millers garnered a 2.9 up 21 percent from last week's 2.4 adults 18-49 rating. The Crazy Ones matched last week's 2.1 adults 18-49 rating. Two and a Half Men notched a 2.1 down 9 percent from last week’s 2.3 adults 18-49 rating. Elementary matched last week’s 1.8 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland matched from last week's series low 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. Grey's Anatomy scored a 2.7 up 17 percent from last week's series low 2.3 adults 18-49 rating. Scandal earned a 3.2 up 7 percent from last week's 3.0 adults 18-49 rating. Your predictions were a little too optimistic.

On FOX The X Factor garnered a 1.2 down 14 percent from last week's 1.4 adults 18-49 rating.

On The CW The Vampire Diaries matched last week's 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. Reign scored a 0.6, even with last week's 0.6 adults 18-49 rating.

So, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland lost to a show on the CW?

That means it's dead, right?

Based on these numbers, between 30% and 35% of persons aged 18-49 were watching TV at 8 pm on a Thursday night in the middle of December. I don't know the historical context of that but it sounds kind of low to me.

I did that by dividing rating by share for the same show. I think that's correct math but someone can correct me if it's not.

Not watching TV, but watching a show on a national network on the night that it aired. There were others watching cable, watching previously recorded shows, watching Netflix etc. etc.

Watching Live TV. Why does it have to be "on a national network?" What about people watching a local channel?

The share can't be just a percentage of people watching the OTA networks. Because if it was the share numbers would add to 100. The shares for the 8:00 time slot add to 31. Which means 69% of TVs in use were watching something else (a cable channel). Right?

Yes, at 8:00, 31% of the 18-49's that were watching TV were watching network TV, the other 69% were watching something else which could be a cable channel, PBS, another local channel etc.

Ok, 30-35% were watching live TV, and that 30-35% is split, 31% network, 69% something else.

Which leaves (100% of the) other 65%-70% of the population which was either watching recorded television or not watching television.

Assume it's 35% for the sake of discussion. The 18-49 population divided up like this:
10.85% watching live OTA network TV
24.15% watching live TV, not on an OTA network
65% not watching live TV

Right?

If so, that 65% strikes me as a high number.

Initially I thought that you were getting the 30-35% number from the share which would have been incorrect but that's not where you were getting it from.
The 8pm total rating was 9.8 and the share was 31. Using (100/31) * 9.8, you get the % of possible 18-49's that were watching TV, which is 31.6%. That's where I believe you were getting the number from correct?

We can see also how much network TV loses viewers later on in the evening but the total people watching television hasn't changed much. At 10pm, the rating was 6.2 and the share was 18. So (100/18)*6.2 gives us 34%. So the total percentage of 18-49s watching TV is about the same but the % watching network TV dropped from 31% to 18%.

I got the number from 5.3 / 17 for the voice, and the same for a few other shows. I assume rounding is the reason they're not all exactly the same in a given time slot.

(5.3 persons watching The Voice / 100 persons) X (100 persons watching TV / 17 persons watching the Voice)

The 100s cancel and the units "Persons Watching the Voice” cancel, and you're left with 5.3 persons watching TV / 17 persons.

In the :30 time slots you have people who are watching hour long shows, who are not listed. And at 10 you have people watching local news on Fox and CW channels. But yeah, still.

I think it's decent, but that's really a horrible number.

OTOH, I cannot figure out how The Millers are getting that number. I wonder how it would do without TBBT as a crutch? And I also wonder if The Crazy Ones would out perform it if they swapped spots.

NBC ordered a full season (22 episodes) before they had ever even produced a pilot. There was even a bit of a bidding war among the networks. So I'm sure NBC isn't about to admit defeat by pulling it off the air prematurely. Also, I wouldn't be surprised if there is a clause in the deal that requires NBC to show all the ordered episodes. And finally, what is NBC going to replace it with? NBC has much bigger problems. MJF isn't even the lowest-rated show on NBC on that night.

TBBT gets more viewers and more 18-49s than pretty much anything else on TV. And then CBS' viewership drops each half hour throughout the rest of Thursday evening. So it's a pretty safe bet that if they swapped The Crazy Ones and The Millers, the ratings would follow suit. But I'm sure CBS execs decided that Robin Williams was a big enough draw to bring an audience on his own, so they didn't want to waste his show in the post-TBBT slot, when they could literally put up nearly anything and get good ratings.

I think this is also the reason NBC put MJF at 9:30 instead of 9 pm, because they hoped he'd be a bit of a tentpole to get viewers from earlier in the night all the way through Parenthood. Hasn't worked, but I can see the thought process involved.

[I had planned on taking a break until shows resume in January, but saw this juicy article on Fall TV Ratings from Matt Webb Mitovich on TVLine]

Fall TV Ratings Champs: NFL, Voice and Spader Fuel NBC's Demo Win; CBS Draws Most Eyeballs

The numbers are in for the opening thrust of the 2013-14 TV season, and NBC was No. 1 in delivering the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo, averaging a 3.2 rating versus CBS’ 2.7 and Fox’s 2.5. ABC placed fourth with a 2.4 rating, followed by The CW’s 0.9.

In total viewers, CBS as usual topped all broadcasters, averaging 11.75 million total viewers. NBC placed second with 9.9 mil, followed by ABC (8.5 mil), Fox (7.3 mil) and The CW (2.07 mil).

Among new shows debuting this fall, NBC’s The Blacklist netted the best demo rating, with a 5.0. Rounding out the Top 5 freshmen were ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (3.9), Fox’s Sleepy Hollow (3.9), CBS’ The Millers (3.2) and CBS’ The Crazy Ones (3.1).

In total audience, the freshman Top 5 were The Blacklist (16.6 million viewers), The Millers (12.2 mil), The Crazy Ones (11.5 mil), S.H.I.E.L.D. (10.3 mil) and Sleepy Hollow (9.6 mil).

Now that NBC appears to have developed an actual scripted hit in The Blacklist, which appears to be popular on its own and not just because it follows another popular show, it will be interesting to see how that translates in the spring when they don't have the NFL and when The Voice is on hiatus. Will NBC be able to continue to build, or will Spring 2014 be a disaster for them just like Spring 2013 was?

Comments:

CBS was number one with adults 18-49 and with total viewers.

On CBS, The Big Bang Theory earned a 5.3, up two tenths from its last original's 5.1 adults 18-49 rating. The Millers earned a 2.9, up three tenths from its last original's 2.6 adults 18-49 rating. The Crazy Ones returned to a 2.0, up a tenth from its last original's 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Two and a Half Men notched a 2.1, up two tenths from the 1.9 it earned three weeks ago. Elementary notched a 1.8, up a tenth adults 18-49 rating from its last original's 1.7.

On NBC, the season premiere of Community notched a 1.3, down six tenths from the 1.9 adults 18-49 rating last season's premiere earned and an all-time low for a premiere. Your predictions were about right. A second episode at 8:30 earned a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating. Sean Saves the World earned a series low 0.8, down two tenths from its last original's 1.0 adults 18-49 rating. The Michael J. Fox Show notched a series low 0.8, down a tenth from its last original's 0.9 adults 18-49 rating. Parenthood earned a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating, up a tenth from its last original's 1.2 adults 18-49 rating.

On ABC, the second season premiere of The Taste earned a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating, a far cry from last year's 2.1 adults 18-49 premiere rating. The premiere of The Assets earned a dismal 0.7 adults 18-49 rating, and has the distinction of being the lowest rated in-season drama debut ever among the "Big 4".

Wow, MJF Show is for all practical purposes DEAD.

Poor Community is barely a blip on the radar as well, and even their own fans bailed on them for the second episode. Not a good sign. I for one enjoy the show for the most part but if it wrapped up for good this season I'd be fine with that.

People watching The Millers instead of Community

I'm not surprised. Really a shame.

But the Millers is like a mirror image of most viewers lives so they totally relate to the middle America bickering/disfunctional family scenario MUCH more than a totally WAY offbeat show like Community. Only a small niche of folks like some of us get some/all of the jokes that get tossed around the show each week. Completely over the heads of most of America.

How do you figure that a drop from 1.3 to 1.2 indicates that "their own fans bailed on them for the second episode?"

Oh I get that. Now only if the Millers was funny.

The Middle is a much better representation of that in my opinion. I'm not from Middle America, but I can certainly relate to that family a lot more than The Millers who don't feel very real to me as a family.

Agreed. Millers is NOT funny. But it's just part of the dumbing down of America. There's more and more folks who find this kind of crapolla "funny".
