Thursday Overnights: Hefty Victory for Night 2 of the Live Democratic Debate on NBC

Sitcom 'Life in Pieces' Concludes

Thursday, June 27, 2019

Household Rating/Share
NBC: 6.2/12, CBS: 2.6/ 5, ABC and Fox: 2.1/ 4 each, CW: 0.4/ 1

-Note: The year-to-year percent comparison is excluded because of NBC’s live broadcast of night 2 of the 2020 Democratic Candidates Debate.

Ratings Breakdown:
Night two of the live 2019 Democratic Candidates Debate, as expected, out-rated night one due to the higher caliber participants like former Vice President Joe Biden and the return of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. It scored an approximate 8.1 rating/15 share in the household overnights from 9-11 p.m., which was 16 percent above the 7.0/13 for the first debate one night earlier. That 7.0 household rating translated into 15.3 million viewers across the platforms NBC, MNBC and Telemundo, according to the Live+Same Day data from Nielsen (which does not include streaming viewership on the platforms featuring the debate —YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and NBC’s digital outlets).

In series final news was CBS sitcom “Life in Pieces,” which concluded its four season run at a 2.5/ 4 in households (#2) in the 9:30 p.m. half-hour.

In week two news, ABC’s summer Thursday line-up of “Holy Moley” (#1: 2.9/ 5 at 8 p.m.; -15 percent from week-ago premiere), “Family Food Fight” (#4: 1.8/ 3 at 9 p.m.; -18 percent) and drama “Reef Break” (#3: 1.5/ 3 at 10 p.m.; -32 percent) all lost double-digit stream versus their week-ago debuts. Week two of Fox game show “Spin the Wheel” (#3: 1.9/ 4) declined by 30 percent from its opener. Let’s see what happens without facing the Democratic Debates next week.
