Wednesday Final Nationals: Fox Gets Slight Boost with New Time Slot for ‘Hell’s Kitchen’

CBS was Wednesday’s most-watched network with 7.82 million viewers.

Fox won in all key demos with the combo of “American Idol” and, on its new night, “Hell’s Kitchen” which moved from its previous Friday 9 p.m. time where it had aired the prior two weeks (and to where the slumping “Second Chance” will air beginning Jan. 29).

Comparatively from its previous Wednesday, Fox saw increases on the night due to the “Hell’s Kitchen” move among total viewers (+6 percent), adults 18-49 (+12 percent), adults 18-34 (+9 percent) and adults 25-54 (+13 percent).

  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/

    • SpongeBob (Nickelodeon, 1/27 4:00-4:30 p.m.) 1.748 million viewers; 0.39 adults 18-49 rating

      SpongeBob (Nickelodeon, 1/27 4:30-5:00 p.m.) 1.963 million viewers; 0.42 adults 18-49 rating

  2. Do you have the ratings for ‘Saturday Morning Fever’ (Fuse), and ‘Sound FX’ (NFL Network)? Thank you!

  3. Yeah you don’t seem to ever get stuff like this wrong, so I will only come here for requests. I do have 3 more questions though:

    1. That 6-8pm telecast was an old episode, or a new one?
    2. That 130K is a series high for the show, does that seem unusual for such a small network?
    3. I have all the ratings for Lucha Underground for the first season (courtesy of you and a couple other places for the 2014 eps), except for the December 17, 2014 episode. If it isn’t too much trouble, and you have the data, could I please have the info for that date?

    Thanks for all of the responses, and again, I’m really liking the new Programming Insider!

  4. For Wednesday 1/27, could I have the L+7 ratings for:

    -Suits (USA)
    -It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FXX)

    Thanks!
