Wednesday Final Nationals: Big-4 Nets Share a Piece of Prime Time Victory

Less than 1.9 million viewers separated the first (CBS, 6.89 million) and fourth place (Fox, 5 million) networks for Wednesday night leadership in average total audience. ABC earned the slight win in adults 18-49 (1.5 rating/6 share) as well as sharing the adults 25-54 lead with a rerun-filled NBC (1.9/6).

ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox each tied for the top among adults 18-34 (0.8/4).

  • @SonOfTheBronx:disqus Do you have anything for The Voice and/or think that’s what hurt The Goldbergs and Speechless?

    • To be clear, you mean in sub-demos?

    • I think this definitely affected ABC. NBC doesn’t usual draw demos this well at this specific hour.

      • Thanks so much! Looks like it was stronger at 8:30 as expected. It’s weird because I don’t recall ABC Wednesday being affected by previous Voice recaps, but it looks like that happened this time.
