Sunday Final Nationals: Increased Growth for ‘Little Big Shots’ in Time Slot Premiere on NBC

NBC's 'The Carmichael Show' Reaches Series-Highs, UniMas+Univision Deportes Delivers Top Rated Regular Season Club Soccer Match on TV in Six Years

AMC was once again victorious on Sunday night in all key demos (2.4 adults 18-49 rating, 1.9 adults 18-34 rating, 2.8 adults 25-54 rating) with “The Walking Dead”. But it was NBC’s revamped Sunday lineup — with an average of 7.79 million — that won prime time among total viewers. It’s the first time NBC has won an in-season Sunday outright among solely the broadcast networks in adults 18-49 with a full night of entertainment series programming (which means not counting sports like the NFL) in nearly 12 years (since April 8, 2004 with “Dateline,” a repeat “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” and “Crossing Jordan”). It’s also the first time NBC has won an in-season Sunday night among the broadcast networks in total viewers with a full night of entertainment series programming in nearly 12 years (since May 16, 2004 with “Dateline,” “L&O: Criminal Intent” and “Crossing Jordan”).

The regular-slot premiere of “Little Big Shots” was NBC’s most-watched Sunday night regularly-scheduled entertainment telecast (excluding post-Super Bowl shows) in more than a decade, since “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” on March 13, 2005 (15.715 million). It increased its total audience by +17 percent from its Mar. 8 preview.

Unsurprisingly, NBC has already renewed “Little Big Shots” for a second season.

The regular-slot second-season premiere of NBC sitcom “The Carmichael Show” set series records in 18-49 and total viewers. With the assistance of its “Little Big Shots” lead-in, it topped the prior record by +17 percent in 18-49 (1.4 vs. 1.2 on Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2015).

Univision Deportes delivered strong ratings for El Súper Clásico soccer match between Chivas and Guadalajara that aired on UniMás. The match was the highest rated regular season club soccer match on any network, regardless of language, among total viewers and adults 18-49, since 2010. The match’s audience from UniMás and Univision Deportes combined to average 2.914 million total viewers and 1.773 million adults 18-49. On that night, UDN (Univision Deportes Network) ranked as the second most-watched cable sports network, regardless of language, in primetime among total viewers and adults 18-49, outperforming Fox Sports 1, NBC Sports Network and ESPN2.

For those who tuned into at least six minutes of the match, the telecast reached 4.7 million total viewers and 2.9 million adults 18-49, outperforming all NBA games on ESPN and NHL matches on NBC for the current season-to-date. The telecast also grew +1 percent among Total Viewers 2+ and +5 percent among Adults 18-49 from the Clausura 2015 Súper Clásico on Univision Deportes.

  2. Could I please have ‘Rachel Hunter’s Tour of Beauty’ and ‘Rough Draft with Reza Aslan’ (Ovation)? Thanks.

      • Thank you for going back in time to get this data for me today! I really hate to do this, but could I also have ‘Lily Cole’s Art Matters'(Ovation) from this day? It’s the last one I’m missing from March. There’s no rush obviously, and thanks again for everything you do!

        Also, can I have an update on the project I emailed you about? If you haven’t gotten to it yet, it’s completely fine, I’ve been really busy too lately; I just need to know when I should have the $$$ set aside for. Thanks again!!
