Broadcast TV Ratings for Wednesday, June 27, 2007

FOX takes the evening with another strong outing from the popular So You Think You Can Dance? reality show.

Fox finished in first place for the evening with a 5.7/10 household rating, 9.14 million total viewers and a 3.5/11 rating among adults 18-49.

  • Last Week:
    • Households – 5.4/10 rating [#1]
    • Viewers – 9.05 million [#1]
    • Adults 18-49 – 3.8/12 rating [#1]
  • 8:00-10:00 p.m.: A two-hour edition of So You Think You Can Dance? (5.7/10 HH rating, 9.14M viewers, 3.5/11 A18-49) once again gave FOX the win for the evening.  Compared to the week prior, the show held up pretty well among households and viewers (increasing among households, with a slight and virtually unchanged performance among viewers), while dipping slightly (-8%) among adults 18-49.  Even still, the performance was good enough to lead the evening across all of those three main categories.
    • Week-to-week numbers (9:00 p.m.):
      • Households – 5.4/10 to 5.7/10
      • Viewers – 9.17M to 9.14M
      • Adults 18-49 – 3.8/12 to 3.5/11

CBS followed in second place for the evening with a 4.6/8 household rating and 6.64 million viewers, but was tied for third among adults 18-49 with a 1.8/6 rating.

  • Last Week:
    • Households – 5.2/9 rating [#3]
    • Viewers – 7.70 million [#3]
    • Adults 18-49 – 1.9/6 rating [#4]
  • Reverting back to an all repeat line-up after last week’s telecast of the AFI special, CBS actually didn’t perform too all that different from the week prior, as it was off by only about 1 million viewers and 5% among adults 18-49.  CBS once again continues to show how strong the network is when they air repeats, especially if their repeats are of the procedural variety (as they were in the case of 2 of the 3 hours programmed this evening).  Basic ratings data for this evening, and last week’s final data for the AFI special follow below.
  • 8:00 & 8:30 p.m.: Back-to-back repeats of King of Queens (3.5/6 HH rating, 5.24M viewers, 1.8/6 A18-49 rating).
  • 9:00 p.m.: A repeat of Criminal Minds (4.7/8 HH rating, 6.57M viewers, 1.6/5 A18-49 rating).
  • 10:00 p.m.: A repeat of CSI: NY (5.7/10 HH rating, 8.12M viewers, 2.3/7 A18-49 rating).
    • Last week’s numbers (AFI’s 100 Years…100 Movies8:00-11:00 p.m.):
      • Households – 5.1/9
      • Viewers – 7.71M
      • Adults 18-49 – 1.9/6

NBC followed in fourth place for the evening with a 3.6/6 household rating and 5.49 million viewers, but managed a stronger second place finish among adults 18-49 with a 2.1/7 rating.

  • Last Week:
    • Households – 3.6/6 rating [#2]
    • Viewers – 5.49 million [#2]
    • A18-49 – 2.1/7 rating [#2]
  • 8:00 p.m: A repeat of last week’s Last Comic Standing (2.7/5 HH rating, 4.07M viewers, 1.6/6 A18-49 rating) started off the evening for NBC, which as you’ll see in a moment, actually wasn’t all too much weaker than an original episode in the following hour.
  • 9:00 p.m.: Last Comic Standing (3.5/6 HH rating, 5.75M viewers, 2.5/7 A18-49 rating) though not off by much, wasn’t able to gain any ground, or regain some of its lost momentum, as the series continues to pace below last year’s installment.
    • Last week’s numbers (Last Comic Standing – 9:00-11:00 p.m.):
      • Households – 3.7/6 to 3.5/6
      • Viewers – 5.98M to 5.75M
      • Adults 18-49 – 2.6/8 to 2.5/7
  • 10:00 p.m.: Dateline NBC (4.4/8 HH rating, 6.16M viewers, 2.2/6 A18-49 rating), as it did the week prior, posted the networks strongest ratings among households and viewers, and stayed consistent among adults 18-49.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 4.5/8 to 4.4/8
      • Viewers – 6.60M to 6.16M
      • Adults 18 49 – 2.2/7 to 2.2/6

ABC finished in third place for the evening with a 3.7/7 household rating and 5.58 million viewers, but was tied for third among adults 18-49 with a 1.9/6 rating.

  • Last Week:
    • Households – 3.7/7 rating [#4]
    • Viewers – 5.58 million [#4]
    • A18-49 – 1.9/6 rating [#3]
  • 8:00 p.m.: The Next Best Thing: Who Is The Greatest Celebrity Impersonator (4.6/9 HH rating, 6.22M viewers, 2.0/7 A18-49 rating) posted a much needed increase for ABC, growing by 980,000 viewers (16%), 12% among households and 10% among adults 18-49.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 4.1/8 to 4.6/9
      • Viewers – 6.21M to 7.19M
      • Adults 18-49 – 2.0/7 to 2.2/8
  • 9:00 p.m.: American Inventor (4.1/7 HH rating, 6.58M viewers, 2.4/7 A18-49 rating) also grew from the week prior, but did so significantly in only one category: adults 18-49.  In addition to building from its lead-in in the category, the show was up by a noteworthy 14% in the demo.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 4.1/7 to 4.1/7
      • Viewers – 6.12M to 6.58M
      • Adults 18-49 – 2.1/6 to 2.4/7
  • 10:00 p.m.: Traveler (2.6/5 HH rating, 3.86M viewers, 1.3/4 A18-49 rating), unfortunately, wasn’t able to build from last week’s first increase of the season, as it fell off by 620,000 viewers (14%), 13% among households and 19% among adults 18-49. (Update: The final nationals show a little better performance for the show: 2.7/5 HH Rating, 3.94M Viewers and a 1.4/4 A18-49 Rating).  I tell ya, it would be great if ABC could somehow find a way to keep this show around, but these ratings certainly aren’t helping the cause.  Hopefully the season finale has some sort of finality to it.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 3.0/5 to 2.6/5
      • Viewers – 4.48M to 3.86M
      • Adults 18-49 – 1.6/5 to 1.3/4

The CW finished in fifth place for the evening with a 1.2/2 household rating, 1.63 million viewers and a 0.6/2 rating among adults 18-49.

  • Last Week:
    • Households – 1.2/2 rating [#5]
    • Viewers – 1.63 million [#5]
    • Adults 18-49 – 0.6/2 rating [#5]
  • 8:00 p.m.: As it heads towards its series finale next week, Hidden Palms (0.9/2 HH rating, 1.46M viewers, 0.5/2 A18-49 rating) grew a tad among viewers, while staying consistent among households and adults 18-49.  But really that’s not really impressive considering just how weak the series is overall in the ratings, plus…
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 0.9/2 to 0.9/2
      • Viewers – 1.28M to 1.46M
      • Adults 18-49 – 0.5/2 to 0.5/2
  • 9:00 p.m.: unlike last week when the second episode of the evening of the series increased from its lead-in, this time the 9 p.m. hour of Hidden Palms (0.8/1 HH rating, 1.42M viewers, 0.6/2 A18-49 rating) fell off, just a tad, from its lead-in.
    • Week-to-week numbers:
      • Households – 1.1/2 to 0.8/1
      • Viewers – 1.54 to 1.42M

Note: Network average numbers from the week prior are based on fast national data. Comparison’s from the week prior (or episode-to-episode, etc.) on specific shows are based on final national data. Ratings for the current day are based on fast nationals. (Expect all three scenarios to be the case at all times, unless otherwise noted). The final rating for first-run episodes that aired this evening will be reported the following week. So for example, the final rating for tonights episode of “So You Think You Can Dance?” will be reported in next weeks report for Wednesday, July 4, 2007.

Also keep in mind that because these are fast national ratings, numbers may increase or decrease when the final nationals are released.
