Broadcast TV Ratings for Wednesday, June 6, 2007

FOX takes the evening among households, viewers and adults 18-49 thanks to another solid outing for So You Think You Can Dance?, which grew by total audience from last week’s episode. It was the evening’s top draw among households, viewers and adults 18-49. Positive results for second week of ‘Next Best Thing’, but weakened second season premiere for American Inventor.

Fox finished in first place for the evening with a 5.4/9 household rating, 8.58 million total viewers and a 3.6/11 rating among adults 18-49.

  • Last Week:
    • Households – 5.7/10 rating [#1]
    • Viewers – 9.33 million [#1]
    • Adults 18-49 – 4.1/12 rating [#1]
  • 8:00 p.m.: A repeat of So You Think You Can Dance? (4.4/8 HH rating, 6.95M viewers, 2.8/9 A18-49) got things started off positively for FOX, as it managed to be first for the hour among adults 18-49.
  • 9:00 p.m.: That led into a new episode of So You Think You Can Dance? (6.4/11 HH rating, 10.21M viewers, 4.4/12 A18-49) which grew by leaps and bounds from its lead-in, and was the nights highest rated and most watched program. The series is really getting into a groove, as it managed to build from last week’s two-hour episode, growing by 880,000 viewers (9%), 12% among households and 7% among adults 18-49.
    • Week-to-week numbers (vs. 8:00-10:00 p.m.):
      • Households – 5.7/10 to 6.4/11
      • Viewers – 9.33M to 10.21M
      • Adults 18-49 – 4.1/12 to 4.4/12

CBS followed in second place for the evening with a 5.3/9 household rating and 7.48 million viewers, but was third among adults 18-49 with a 2.1/6 rating.

  • Last Week:
    • Households - 5.6/9 rating [#2]
    • Viewers - 8.01 million [#2]
    • Adults 18-49 – 2.4/7 rating [#2]
  • 8:00 & 8:30 p.m.: Back-to-back repeats of The King of Queens (3.9/7 HH rating, 5.53M viewers, 1.8/6 A18-49 rating) were fairly even with last week’s performance. Nothing too special.
    • Last week’s numbers (The King of Queens-REPEAT – 8:00 p.m.):
      • Households – 3.6/7
      • Viewers – 5.05M
      • Adults 18-49 – 1.7/6
    • Last week’s numbers (The King of Queens-REPEAT – 8:30 p.m.):
      • Households – 3.7/6
      • Viewers – 5.22M
      • Adults 18-49 – 2.0/7
  • 9:00 p.m.: A repeat of Criminal Minds (5.5/9 HH rgating, 7.75M viewers, 1.9/5 A18-49 rating) declined a bit from last week, but still pulled in solid numbers for a repeat, growing modestly from its lead-in.
    • Last week’s numbers (Criminal Minds-REPEAT):
      • Households – 6.1/10
      • Viewers – 8.80M
      • Adults 18-49 – 2.5/7
  • 10:00 p.m.: A repeat of CSI: NY (6.3/10 HH rating, 9.17M viewers, 2.7/8 A18-49 rating) continued the up-ward trend for CBS, as it notched the networks highest ratings for the evening, and an easy first place finish for the hour, eclipsing an original episode of Traveler and the final portion of The Stanley Cup game. In fact, it beat the combined household (6.3 to 5.5) and viewer (9.17M to 8.31M) average of those two programs, and nearly did the same among adults 18-49.
    • Last week’s numbers (CSI: NY-REPEAT):
      • Households – 7.1/12
      • Viewers – 10.10M
      • Adults 18-49 – 3.0/8

ABC finished in third place for the evening with a 4.6/8 household rating and 7.19 million viewers, but managed a stronger second place finish among adults 18-49 with a 2.5/7 rating.

  • Last Week:
    • Households – 4.2/7 rating [#3]
    • Viewers – 6.32 million [#3]
    • A18-49 – 2.0/6 rating [#3]
  • 8:00 p.m.: The second week of The Next Best Thing: Who Is The Greatest Celebrity Impersonator (5.2/10 HH rating, 8.31M viewers, 2.7/9 A18-49 rating) managed to build slightly from its series premiere last week, a positive sign for the longevity of the program. Gains were minimal (4% among households, 560,000 viewers or 7% and 8% among adults 18-49), but they are worth noting none the less.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 5.0/9 to 5.2/10
      • Viewers – 7.75M to 8.31M
      • Adults 18-49 – 2.5/8 to 2.7/9
  • 9:00 p.m.: The second season premiere of American Inventor (4.9/8 HH rating, 7.81M viewers, 3.0/8 A18-49 rating) managed to keep most of the audience from its lead-in (improving a solid 11% among adults 18-49), but the show was well down from the series premiere last March. As you can see from the numbers below, this seasons premiere was down by 6.34M viewers (45%), 44% among households and 21% among adults 18-49. Since that was its series premiere during a different month, it may be more accurate to measure the shows performance against the season 1 average. In that instance, it was still down, but not nearly as much so (9.44M viewer average).
    • Season premiere comparison (Thursday, 3/16/2006 – 8:00-10:01 p.m.):
      • Households – 8.7/14 to 4.9/8
      • Viewers – 14.15M to 7.81M
      • Adults 18-49 – 3.8/11 to 3.0/8
    • Last week’s numbers (Traveler-REPEAT):
      • Households – 3.4/6
      • Viewers – 4.93M
      • Adults 18-49 – 1.5/4
  • 10:00 p.m.: Traveler (3.7/6 HH rating, 5.44M viewers, 1.8/5 A18-49 rating) declined yet again in its third week, hitting a series low with its weekly decline of 840,000 viewers (13%), 12% among households and 14% among adults 18-49. It’s a shame ABC saw it necessary to hold the series until the Summer as I find it to be a very enjoyable hour of television.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 4.2/7 to 3.7/6
      • Viewers – 6.28M to 5.44M

  • 8:00-11:00 p.m.: NBC’s coverage of Game 5 of the 2007 Stanley Cup Finals between the Anaheim Ducks (H) and Ottawa Senators (A) (1.8/3 HH rating, 2.87M viewers, 1.2/4 A18-49 rating), which of course turned out to be the last game of the the Cup, improved only minimally (and not even in all categories) from Game 4 and was well off from last year’s already too low numbers. The game was down by 980,000 viewers (25%), 25% among households and 20% among adults 18-49.

      • Households – 1.9/3 to 1.8/3
      • Viewers – 2.80M to 2.87M
      • Adults 18-49 – 1.1/4 to 1.2/4

The CW finished in fifth place for the evening with a 1.3/2 household rating, 1.82 million viewers and a 0.7/2 rating among adults 18-49.

  • Last Week:
    • Households – 1.4/2 rating [#5]
    • Viewers – 1.83 million [#5]
    • Adults 18-49 – 0.8/2 rating [#5]
  • 8:00 p.m.: There was no gain for the second episode of Hidden Palms (1.1/2 HH rating, 1.54M viewers, 0.4/2 A18-49 rating). Sure ratings weren’t much lower from last week (4% among viewers and 8% among households, with a much more significant loss among adults 18-49 of 33%), but when ratings are already this low, how much lower can you possibly get?
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 1.2/2 to 1.1/2
      • Viewers – 1.60M to 1.54M
      • Adults 18-49 – 0.6/2 to 0.4/2
  • 9:00 p.m.: One Tree Hill (1.6/3 HH rating, 2.11M viewers, 0.9/2 A18-49 rating) again performed very poorly. It was up slightly from the week prior among households and viewers, but that could change once the finals are released (like they did last week).
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 1.5/3 to 1.6/3
      • Viewers – 2.06M to 2.11M
      • Adults 18-49 – 0.9/3 to 0.9/2
