Wednesday Final Nationals: ‘Survivor Kaoh Rong’ on CBS Tops Night’s Telecasts in Same-Day Viewers

CBS and Fox split Wednesday night victory. CBS topped in total viewers (8.38 million), Fox topped in all key demos: adults 18-49 (2.4 rating/9 share), adults 18-34 (2.1/9), and adults 25-54 (2.8/8).

For the first time this season, when “Empire” aired on the same night, the long-running CBS reality competition “Survivor Kaoh Rong” bested the Fox serial drama to become TV’s most-watched telecast of Wednesday night, according to live plus same day viewers (“Empire” will most likely be tops on the night, though, when time-shifted audience figures are factored in the coming week).

  1. Let me start by saying: I LOVE the cable chart. I like how it’s only primetime because that’s generally where most of the higher-rated programming is.
    ———
    On a separate note, do you have ‘Autopsy’ & ‘Stalkers Who Kill’ (Reelz)? They probably didn’t bring in that many viewers. Thank you.

    • Autopsy: The Last Hours of Heath Ledger (Reelz, 5/04 9:00-10:00 p.m.) 164,000 viewers; 0.06 adults 18-49 rating

      Stalkers Who Kill (Reelz, 5/04 12:00-1:00 a.m.) 60,000 viewers; 0.01 adults 18-49 rating

      • Thanks a lot! The last 2 are ‘Micro Monsters with David Attenborough’ (Smithsonian) and ‘Going RV’ (GAC) at 9pm/9:30pm.

        • Micro Monsters with David Attenborough (Smithsonian, 5/04 8:00-9:00 p.m.) 71,000 viewers; 0.01 adults 18-49 rating

          Going RV (GAC, 5/04 9:00-9:30 p.m.) 101,000 viewers; 0.01 adults 18-49 rating

          Going RV (GAC, 5/04 9:30-10:00 p.m.) 126,000 viewers; 0.02 adults 18-49 rating

  2. Douglas, do you have the exact 18-49 figures for Skin Wars at 9pm and 10pm? Also, Idiotest from 5/3? Thanks
