Returning Broadcast Shows Suffer a 25% Ratings Drop
Only the NFL, ‘Empire’ Can Boast Significant Gains
Nielsen live-plus-same-day ratings for 41 of the 47 returning Big Four shows are down significantly from a year ago, with the average rate of change in the key 18-to-49 demo lurking at around the 25% mark. Only two shows are experiencing losses in the single digits; meanwhile, a dozen returning series have lost 30% or more of their relevant deliveries.
It’s not just creaky franchises like ABC’s “Castle” (-43%) or historically underperforming gap fillers like NBC’s “The Mysteries of Laura” (-33%) that are getting clobbered. Viewers are ghosting two of Fox’s biggest recent hits, as “Gotham” has fallen 48% from its year-ago marks, while the formerly white-hot “Sleepy Hollow” is languishing (-50%) in its new Thursday night slot. ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” is another fan favorite that has seen better days; through its first two airings this season, the fantasy drama has seen 47% of its viewership in the demographic go up in smoke.
The Sunday night thriller “Quantico” is perhaps its (ABC) least ambiguous new hit, posting a 1.9 in the claustrophobic 10 p.m. slot. That marks a 46% lift versus the year-ago “Revenge” and ties “Quantico” with CBS’s “Limitless” for bragging rights as the No. 3 drama in the final hour of prime time. Leading out of “The Voice” on Monday nights, “Blindspot” (2.9) is tops, while a slumping (-29%) “How to Get Away with Murder is runner-up with a 2.5.
