  2. FROM ABC

    CMA Country Christmas (8-10pm – 7.8 million and 1.3/4 in AD18-49): From 8-10pm, ABC’s annual telecast of CMA Country Christmas surged over its year-ago telecast (on 12/3/15) in Total Viewers (+34% – 7.8 million vs. 5.8 million) and Adults 18-49 (+44% – 1.3/4 vs. 0.9/3), taking 2nd place in the 2-hour time slot among the broadcasters to NBC with The Voice.

    Please note: ABC’s Monday lineup was preempted in Philadelphia and Milwaukee for local NFL coverage (3.347% U.S.).

  3. It should be noted that Supergirl on The CW was pre-empted in the Philadelphia and Milwaukee markets for Monday Night Football so expect a huge downward adjustment.

    CMA’s back up from last year after airing on a Thursday, ABC needs to keep this Mondays after DWTS season ends.

    I’m surprised CBS was in reruns last night but I am excited to see what the comedies do next Monday when they return for the first time this season when not going against DWTS.

      • My bad you was right it was ABC in those cities, I read it wrong from this other site because I was doing something else at the same time. It was Green Bay who was preempted on The CW which is a very small city so that shouldn’t make no difference like it would in Milwaukee or Philly. Plus it might legitimately be up since I heard this was a crossover week for the superhero shows on the network.

        • It’s “legitimate” all right, but a result of a big promotional push including buying ad space outside the network for those four hours.

          The result? Bad ratings still…

          • 21% increase for Supergirl
            40% increase for The Flash
            94% increase for Arrow.
            83% increase for LoT
            Were you expecting a 1000% increase?
            In what world are those bad ratings? What would you consider good ratings?

            • The point is that percentage increases are meaningless as the lower the base, the higher the percentage for the same audience gain.

              I’ll give you again the same example I used before (sorry for those who read it before):

              If Crazy Ex Girlfriend goes from 1 million viewers to 2 million viewers, it’s a 100% improvement.

              If NCIS goes from 20 million viewers to 22 million, it’s a 10 % improvement.

              Yet NCIS gained another million viewers on Crazy Ex Girlfriend.

              That’s why network PR (and in particular CW and FOX) loves those numbers. The lower the ratings ,the better the percentages…

  4. Supergirl did well against Gotham with the announcement of this four way crossover event .Gotham is done until mid January as is Lucifer and their winter finale is Jan 30th

    Love Lucifer. That’s a pretty solid bounce there especially in total viewers. Love this show!

    Timeless I don’t see how it will go past this season. I think it was given 16 episodes. What are NBC’s Monday at 10PM plans for early next year? Quantico would only be a mild improvement for ABC at 10PM

  5. CW spent a lot of promo money and still couldn’t beat Gotham…

    I wouldn’t call that “soaring” I’m afraid…
