    CBS Sunday Live + Same Day Highlights

    “WISDOM OF THE CROWD,” “NCIS: LOS ANGELES”
    AND “MADAM SECRETARY” ARE SUNDAY’S TOP
    THREE SCRIPTED BROADCASTS

    “Madam Secretary” Posts Growth in A18-49

    · Note: Due to late running football, CBS prime started at approximately 7:34 PM in Eastern and Central time zones. Ratings are tentative and subject to change.

    · From 7:30-8:30 PM, 60 MINUTES averaged 13.95m, 2.5 in A18-49 and 3.4 in A25-54.

    · From 8:30-9:30 PM, WISDOM OF THE CROWD averaged 8.01m, 1.1 in A18-49 (nc) and 1.6 in A25-54. WISDOM OF THE CROWD was Sunday’s #1 broadcast in viewers.

    · From 9:30-10:30 PM, NCIS: LOS ANGELES averaged 7.91m, 1.0 in A18-49 and 1.6 in A25-54.

    · From 10:30-11:30 PM, MADAM SECRETARY averaged 6.21m, 0.8 in A18-49 (up +14%) and 1.2 in A25-54 (nc).

  2. Man alive, Toy Box must be dirt cheap for ABC or there is no way they could tolerate those ratings. And, as we discussed, they must just be riding the storm out for TDITV since it is a limited series.

    • As I often say, it’s all about the internal politics of ABC. They’ll “tolerate” just about anything if there’s the right connections and power involved… 🙁

      There’s also that they can’t afford to make replacement shows any longer… 🙁

  3. I checked out the 2012 rating and surprisingly, football is not down much if at all. The big difference is what’s against it. FOX had the Baseball playoffs (and an NFL overrrun) and was doing WAY higher ratings (18 million viewers!). CBS was about where it is now and ABC was around 7-8 million viewers, over double what it did this Sunday…

    [don’t know if the grid will hold – if not apologies…]

  4. Watch how The Mick and Bob’s Burger destroyed the football lead-in at Fox…

    Also Last Man on Earth remains a humongous flop as predicted…

    At ABC Ten Days In The Valley also worthy of a special mention for how low its ratings are…
