Week two of the new FX series THE STRAIN stayed in the cable to 10, but lost 17% in the A18-49 ratings and 29% in viewership, from last week's series premiere. Not horrible retention numbers, but nothing to build the confidence of FX in the new series. Perhaps the L+3 numbers will reflect better retention.
CBS swept a rather uneventful Sunday night of primetime TV, which featured just five hours of original programming, out of a possible 15 hours. CBS had the three most watched shows of the night, starting with 60 MINUTES, at 7 p.m., through UNFORGETTABLE, ending at 10 p.m. BIG BROTHER was the nights #1 show in the A18-49 demographic, grabbing a 2.2 rating.

GIRL MEETS WORLD has cooled off over the past few weeks. After drawing over five million viewers for it's series premiere, the latest episode is pulling in about half of that. From just last week, viewership is down 600,000. The Disney sitcom finished second on the night, behind SMACKDOWN.
It was a pretty horrible week for the CW. four programs drew just a 0.1 rating in Adults 18-49. Three of the programs are the stronger series by the network, including ARROW, on Tuesday night. Only three hours of programming managed to get above a 0.2 demo rating, two of which included WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY?
CBS and ABC split the Friday night ratings. CBS, with it's older drawing crime dramas, collected the most viewers, with five million. ABC edged NBC for the top spot of the A18-49 ratings, as 20/20 out performed DATELINE, in the demographic ratings.
CBS was the top network of the night, among the English language networks, grabbing the most viewers and the highest A18-49 rating. But, it was UNIVISION that was the #1 network of Thursday night, in the A18-49 ratings, with a solid 1.7 rating. Univision not only topped all the networks in the demo, it also beat FOX, NBC and the CW in total viewers, with 4.1 million.
