Wednesday Final Nationals: ‘black-ish’ Dips to Series Lows in Back-to-Back Airings on ABC

CBS was the Wednesday prime time leader among total viewers (6.65 million) and shared the lead with Fox among adults 25-54 (1.8 rating/6 share). Fox also shared the lead in another demo category: adults 18-49 (approx. 1.5 rating), with TNT. Coverage of the “2017 NBA Playoffs”: Atlanta at Washington Game 5 (1.83 million viewers) in the early evening, followed by Chicago at Boston Game 5 (4.28 million viewers) in prime time gave TNT an outright victory among adults 18-34 (approx. 1.5 rating)

ABC scheduled back-to-back original episodes of the comedy “black-ish” in the 9 p.m. hour. The first episode hit a series-low (to-date) in adults 18-49 delivery (with a 1.2 rating); the latter episode sunk to a series-low (to-date) in total viewers (4.22 million). As a slight positive, the latter episode built upon its earlier one among adults 18-49 (1.3 rating).
