Ratings Review: THE EXES (Season Four - Winter 2015)

In general, original comedies, on cable, are taking a hit in the ratings. TV LAND is feeling a large portion of that hit as all of its original programming is sitcoms. THE EXES does relatively decent numbers, but they are not good numbers.

Preliminary Ratings: Tuesday 03/03/15

There were to spring season premieres, on Tuesday night, and neither did anything to set the ratings on fire.

HELL'S KITCHEN is back and is taking over the MASTERCHEF JUNIOR slot, on FOX. the premiere collected 4.1 million viewers and a 1.4 rating in Adults 18-49. That is near even with the Fall 2014 premiere, though slightly lower. The series should do a decent job in the ratings, but will not ever come close to being a ratings contender.

Complete Nielsen Ratings: Feb 23 - March 1, 2015

The full Nielsen rankings and ratings from #1 to #90: 

The last week of February, 2015, turned out to be one of the more competitive weeks of the season, by the Big 4 networks. In the A18-49 demographic ratings, the four networks were separated by just one tenth of a ratings point, with all four getting the same five share. In the A25-54 demographic, CBS took the top spot, but the other three networks were within four tenths of a point. If this is any indication, the rest of the season should be fun to watch, as we go down to the wire to see which network comes out on top.

Primetime Cable Ratings: March 2, 2015

The season finale of HGTV's competition series, ELLEN'S DESIGN CHALLENGE, drew 2.4 million viewers and a 0.5 rating in Adults 18-49, capping off a season that puts it as one of the highest rated series in HGTV History. The series consistently drew over two million viewers per episodes, not counting encores or time shifted data. Although the only black mark the series may have is the controversial ending, which we will not spoil here.

Top 100 Primetime Cable: Feb 23 - March 1, 2015

Half way through the winter half of season five, THE WALKING DEAD posted its best numbers since the mid-season premiere. The 14.4 million viewers and 7.5 A18-49 rating, are within 90% of first episodes of 2015. The series has just four episodes left for the 2014-15 season, so expect ratings to continue to grow throughout March.

  • NBC to launch OTT service  
  • TruTV orders multiple  series
  • Daytime Emmys back to TV
  • FX renews low rated sitcom

Final Broadcast Ratings: March 2, 2015

The third season premiere of THE FOLLOWING looks to have bombed at the starting gate, collecting just 4.9 million viewers and a 1.6 rating in the A18-49 ratings. Last year, airing on a Sunday night, THE FOLLOWING drew 11.2 million viewers and a 4.4 demo rating. That is a loss of 6.3 million viewers (-55%) and nearly three full ratings points (-64%) in the demo. With CBS and The CW in encores, it should have had a decent chance at good numbers.
