It’s a new Monday and many networks brought new episodes of favorite shows. Here’s a look inside the live TV ratings for 4400, Ordinary Joe, and more.
CBS had a night of reruns on Monday, Oct. 25. It means we’re not paying that much attention to the network. The focus is on the networks with new episodes.
The CW debuted a new season of All American and the new series 4400. Both performed well for the network compared to other shows this season so far. However, the numbers are down considerably from last season. The CW will consider the dips, but it will also consider the shows overall this season.
All American was down from the Season 3 premiere by 48% in the demo and 38% in the audience. That would be alarming if it wasn’t for the fact that the show is at the top of all CW shows! 4400 debuted with a 0.2 demo and 0.54 million viewers. Again, that would be alarming except that the series is No. 2 on the network right now.
We’ll have to see how things stabilize, but these are good signs for both CW shows getting renewals.
The Big Leap down, Ordinary Joe up in the live TV ratings
The Voice pulled in the largest number of viewers and the larges demo. Both were also up from the previous Monday episode. Meanwhile, Dancing With the Stars was down 15% in the demo and 9% in the audience, but those numbers were still the second-best of the whole night. There’s no need to think these two reality shows are going anywhere.
The Masked Singer had a new episode that saw more than a 50% drop in both metrics. However, this new episode was on a different night and wasn’t all that well advertised. 9-1-1 fans just knew a new episode of their favorite show wasn’t on, which would have led to people heading elsewhere for content.
The Big Leap was the only other show to see a downward tick in the metrics. It was down another 13% in the demo and 12% in the audience. I just don’t see this show being renewed at all. It’s not stabilized yet and the numbers are way down compared to returning shows on the network.
The Good Doctor returned after a week off with a 5% increase in the demo and a 7% increase in the audience. The show was the top of the timeslot in the audience and joint top with Ordinary Joe in the demo. As long as Freddie Highmore signs on for another season, we’ll see this show renewed.
I also think Ordinary Joe will make it through. The show was up 8% in the demo and 14% in the audience. While the audience numbers are lower than the audience numbers of the NCIS: Hawaii rerun, this is a competitive night. The fact that the numbers keep going up is a good sign, and we need more shows like this. I’d just like to see it get a better timeslot.
