Still checking the finals at sitcomsonline.com. Here you go.

Thursday final ratings

Supernatural received 3.38 million viewers with a 1.4/3 in the 18-49 demographic and a 1.6/3 in the 25-54 category. Interesting how it skews up a whole three tenths once you add the 50 year olds. This series does have older fans. Not every show skews up in the older demo as reported on this site, but Supernatural always does.

Smallville ticked up in the finals to receive 5.01 million viewers, and a 2.1/5 in both 18-49 and 25-54 demos.

The OC edged out Supernatural with 3.39 million viewers and a 1.5/3 in 18-49, 1.6/3 in 25-54 category. It beat them by 1,000 viewers and one tenth in 18-49 demographic. :(

What blows my mind is the performance of frigging Deal or No Deal on NBC for crying out loud. 13.22 million viewers and that's supposed to be the weak network competition. :bang Add in 20.77 million for CSI and 21.02 for your favorite and mine--Grey's Anatomy. :bang

Yeah I know Galveston, DOND will be taken off Thursday's by the end of the month and replaced with weaker sitcoms. :)

Also Fox is shifting The OC to Wednesday nights for two weeks and if it does well there it will stay. However if it fails then it might be cancelled.

But we always go up and down next week we will go back up again.

Also- guess who is in more homes? That's right- FOX. So, to see that they beat us by only 1,000 viewers? Give us the same number of homes.... that's right. We probably have them beat.

1. We are the top 3 (in normal CW shows) and 5 in (reality, wrestling & normal shows). TOP 3!!!

2. With a considerable less amount of households than Fox, and to have stood up by that much... lets just say it's not a pretty sight over at Fox right now.

3. CW is obviously setting up Supernatural as one of it's flagships. With merchandise and a possible companion show to try to repeat the sucess of the show.

So, stop worrying. Everything is going great. Don't see any negative. Yeah, we went down a little this week- big deal. If a week meant life or death- then panic. But, a week is a week. That's all it is.

Wow, I didn't know that SN had so many older viewers. I've already posted this at the help desk, but no one's answered yet, so I'm going to ask again here. What do all those tenths mean? I've tried looking it up on other pages and every time I try to read an explanation I get confused. Could one of you more ratings savvy ppl please help me out here? Thanks!!!

Dean5339 -- you hit the nail on the head. Since the CW isn't available in all areas, that makes the ratings a bit skewed. I am convinced we have a lot more viewers out there then the ratings show but those people are having to go to YouTube to watch the episodes. I also think we dipped a bit because it was the season premiere of The OC. People were curious as to how that show was going to work having killed off a major character. Judging from the less then stellar performance (The OC was down something like 45% from last year), people tuned in, watched, and then left to go do something else. I suspect we will see a return in some of those numbers this week.

As for the tenths (hopefully I am explaining it right)....ratings are done in percentages not whole numbers. From the Neilson site...there is an estimated 130.6 people between the ages of 18-49 in America (the key demographic) so 1% of those equals 1.31 million people. Remember not everybody has one of those cool little ratings recorder in their homes and most homes have more then one TV -- this is one of the reason that many in the industry are calling for a new way to count ratings. The old way is just that...old and antiquated and is probably not truly representing the face of the average television viewer.

escapism you got the clincher right there. The season premiers are always pretty high and if the OC only beat SN by 1,000 viewers that speaks volumes. SN's premier was way higher than the OC.

I really don't think we have much to worry about.

Personally, it doesn't make sense to me to compare the CW with CBS, NBC, ABC, and FOX because most people can only get the CW if they have cable or satelite. DESPITE it being a supposed local network station. :huh:

It makes more sense to me to compare it to other cable/satelite networks like USA, SciFi, and TBS and so on. Then Supernatural's ratings are pretty darn good. I mean, Stargate was getting 4.1 on average for ratings and SciFi thought that was great. Supernatural with 3.38....

I think a good promotion campaign would be for the CW to make deals and get their shows, Supernatural especially, promoted on other cable/satelite networks. I'll bet money they'd get even better ratings. There is just no way they can compete with CBS, ABC, NBC, and FOX when everyone gets those networks but not many can get the CW locally...

I totally agree, I think that SN will be ok. Not that I would be opposed to any kind of letter writing campaigne (I saw that on some thread in here I get lost). I hope that the CW is setting SN to be a flagship show. I also think rerunning the eps on Sunday will help draw in viewers too.

Like I said when the fast nationals came out, a one week dip is okay, it's not going to kill us. Now, if the numbers continue to drop, then hit the panic button. I don't foresee that happening any time soon.

I decided we should start a CW Ratings Thread for all the CW shows Including SN.

So post all ratings here as we get them. So we can keep track of how the shows are doing and not have multiple threads floating around.

So here are Tuesday's Numbers for fast nationals.


Prime-Time Metered Market Tuesday Ratings: ABC Dances to Victory; CBS No. 3 in Election Night Coverage

Tuesday 11/07/06 Metered Market Ratings

NETWORK HH RATING/SHARE
ABC 11.2/16
CBS 7.7/11
Fox 7.6/11
NBC 5.2/8
CW 2.8/4

Note: Due to Election night coverage, overnight comparisons to the year-ago evening are excluded. As a reminder, the fast national results for Tuesday will be posted at www.pifeedback.com at 12 p.m. ET. Go to the website, click on Ratings Box (the first category), then Last Night's Results, and Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2006.

----------

-Yesterday's Winners:
Dancing With the Stars (ABC), NCIS (CBS), House (Fox)

-Yesterday's Losers (excluding repeats):
Friday Night Lights (NBC), Standoff (CBS), Veronica Mars (CW)

----------

-Ratings Breakdown:
Led by the countdown to the season-finale of Dancing With the Stars and Election Night coverage, ABC dominated Tuesday, with an average overnight rating advantage over second-place CBS of a hefty 45 percent. Expect ABC to also rule once the fast national rating results are posted at www.pifeedback.com at 12 p.m. ET.

A half-hour clips edition of the addictive Dancing With the Stars opened the evening for ABC with a first-place 12.9 rating/19 share at 8 p.m. That led into the one-hour semi-finals at a season-high 15.0/21 in the overnights from 8:30-9:30 p.m. As to who is going home tonight (based on their two dances, Mario, Emmitt and Joey are tied with 59 points from the judges), it's time for the former Gimme A Break kid to sadly bid adieu.

Second in the 8 p.m. hour was CBS' rock solid NCIS at a 10.4/15 in the overnights, followed by NBC's struggling Friday Night Lights (4.1/ 6), Fox's poorly relocated Standoff (3.7/ 5), and the CW's diluted Gilmore Girls (3.7/ 5). Comparably, Gilmore Girls on the WB on the year-ago evening was considerably more potent at a 5.3/ 8 (on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2005).

Opposite the final half-hour of ABC's Dancing With the Stars (plus the first half-hour of ABC's Election coverage), Fox's House stood tall with a second-place 11.4/16 in the overnights from 9-10 p.m. (and an expected first-place finish among adults 18-49 once the fast nationals are released). Comparably, House built from anemic lead-in Standoff by a mammoth 208 percent in rating and 11 share points.

Third in the overnights in the 9 p.m. hour was CBS' The Unit (7.2/10), which remains a compatible fit out of NCIS. NBC's Law & Order: Criminal Intent ranked fourth with a 5.9/ 8 (44 percent above lead-in Friday Night Lights), followed by the CW's still struggling Veronica Mars (2.0/ 3). To the fans wondering if the CW will give Veronica Mars a back-nine episode order, my guess is yes given the lack of upcoming new midseason programming options.

ABC got a jump on Election Night coverage, with a 9.3/13 in the overnights in the 9:30 p.m. half-hour (out of Dancing With the Stars, of course). In the battle of the Election coverage from 10-11 p.m., ABC remained the top choice, followed by NBC and CBS. Take a look:

Tuesday 10-11 p.m. Election Night Coverage
ABC: 6.6/11, NBC: 5.3/ 8, CBS: 4.5/ 7

Don't forget, for a more detailed analysis using fast national data, go to www.pifeedback.com at 12 p.m., click on Ratings Box (the first category), then Last Night's Results, and Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2006.


Looks Like VM is Dead against House as predicted. But look at the Drop of with Gilmore Girls. A lot of fans are upset with the pairing of C/L

She's deader than dead. :( Berman corrected his viewer number at the end of his thread at his pifeedback.com site. VM received 2.85 million viewers and a 1.3 demo. I believe GG only received 4.3 million and change. That Lorelai /Christopher storyline is sure reeling them in. :lol:
