Monday Final Nationals: Double-Digit Increases for ‘WWE Raw’ on USA with Daniel Bryan Retirement

Three broadcast networks earned a share in the top honors of this Monday night. CBS won in total viewers with an average of 9.67 million, Fox won in adults 18-49 (2.1 rating/7 share) and in adults 25-54 (2.8/7), and ABC won in adults 18-34 (1.8/7).

On the downside, although “The Bachelor” reached a season-high to-date ratings performance, lead-out “Castle” returned from its 10-week hiatus to its season-low in total viewership.

The retirement of popular wrestler Daniel Bryan boosted USA’s “WWE Raw” total audience (3.73 million vs. 3.38 million) by 10 percent, its adults 18-49 crowd by 11 percent (1.726 million vs. 1.544 million) and by a significant 22 percent among adults 18-34 (1.30 rating vs. 1.07 rating) — mainly due to the same 22 percent increase in the “WWE Raw” primary target demo of males 18-34 (1.70 rating vs. 1.43 rating) — over its week-ago telecast.

Also on cable, the debut of comedy news program “Full Frontal” with host Samantha Bee (formerly of “The Daily Show”) averaged 2.501 million viewers and 1.301 million adults 18-49 across five Turner networks — TBS, Adult Swim, TNT, HLN and truTV.

  1. Visitors requesting ratings are only allowed a MAXIMUM of TWO shows per query. You cannot make additional requests until the prior ones you had made are addressed.

    With the exception of broadcast network half-hours, time-block requests will not be answered. Requests also won’t be fulfilled for a network’s show rankings nor telecasts of marathons longer than two-hour periods.

    Please note Programming Insider will not answer any request for a show’s ratings prior to November 16, 2015. If you are requesting prior dates’ numbers from Nov. 16 or later, you MUST post your query as a comment at that respective date’s ratings page via http://programminginsider.com/category/ratings/

    • Teen Titans Go! (Cartoon Network, 2/08 6:00-6:30 p.m.) 1.166 million viewers; 0.26 adults 18-49 rating

      Amazing World of Gumball (Cartoon Network, 2/08 6:30-7:00 p.m.) 1.281 million viewers; 0.27 adults 18-49 rating

  2. I had to use Disqus to get here since I can’t seem to get onto the site, but do you have the numbers for ‘Strange Inheritance’ (9pm & 9:30pm) on Fox Business? I’m also curious to know how ‘Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’ did on HLN … Thank you!

    • “‪Strange Inheritance” (Fox Business, 2/08 9-9:30‪ p.m.‬): 0.103 million viewers (0.01 adults 18-49 rating)

      “Strange Inheritance” (Fox Business, 2/08 9:30-1‪0 p.m.‬): 0.105 million viewers (0.03 adults 18-49 rating)

      I included the HLN data in the article. Nielsen labeled that time slot as Forensic Files but I knew it was actually Sam Bee’s show.

  3. L+7 for ‘The Fosters’, and ‘Recovery Road’ (Freeform) is all I’m looking for from this day. Thanks again
