Ratings Roundup for the Week of January 12, 2020


NBC gave some good news to fans of New Amsterdam last week, renewing the program for the next three seasons. This Is Us returned even with its last new episode in November. Manifest lost a couple of tenths from its premiere, as did Lincoln Rhymes: The Hunt for the Bone Collector. It's been a tough season for the Peacock's freshman shows, and it's likely none the new shows from this season will see the fall schedule.

ABC enjoyed another ratings boost from prime-time Jeopardy last week. Unfortunately, Mixed-ish and Black-ish didn't reap much of the audience reward, both shows dropped back down to where they were before Christmas. Stumptown also lost a tenth it couldn't afford, and Emergence is going to go out with a whimper at the end of the month.

CBS saw God Friended Me bounce back from its awful numbers the previous week, picking up four tenths thanks to the NFL playoffs, NCIS: Los Angeles was up three tenths the same night. Criminal Minds, The Unicorn and Carol's Second Act were even with the previous week. Evil appears to have settled at the low end of the ratings chart, its numbers were even with its last new episode. The program will likely be pushed off to the summer next season.

The CW wrapped up the Crisis on Infinite Earths story line and Legends of Tomorrow had a nice bump, up two tenths from where it ended last season. Dynasty's numbers are getting even more embarrassing; it's possible this may be the first prime-time network show to earn a 0.0 in the not too distant future.

@tnt It did not receive any additional episode orders, it's effectively cancelled. Did ABC come out and say this? No, but they don't for freshman shows, they just sort of fade away after thirteen episodes.

Is it official about Emergence cancellation, or it's just on the bubble for now?

FBI Most Wanted was a new episode in its regular Tuesday time slot (it scored a 0.8 and is right behind its parent show on the chart). The network ran a repeat on Saturday that scored a 0.5.

I have a question, why by FBI: Most Wanted do you have rerun? Wasn't it a new episode? Or did they re-air an episode?

LadyShelley posted 27 days ago

Perfect Harmony did not receive any addition episode order, it's effectively cancelled. Yes both Mixed-ish and Black-ish ran new episodes last week, at they're regular time slot. Both shows also ran reruns last Thursday

jcar03 posted 27 days ago

When was it announced Perfect Harmony was for sure cancelled?  Weren't Black-ish and Mixed-ish both new last week?
