Ratings Roundup for the Week of February 2, 2020


NBC had two premieres last week. Brooklyn Nine-Nine opened much lower than its premiere last season, but was about even with where it ended last spring. The Peacock's bad luck with new shows continued with Indebted. The premiere barely garnered two million viewers. Don't expect it to last beyond its initial episode order. Lincoln Rhyme was steady, but low, it will quietly disappear in a few more weeks. Manifest gained a tenth and should be safe for another year.

CBS premiered the latest season of MacGyver last week. It opened a couple of tenths higher than where it ended last season. Time will tell if it can hold those numbers. Criminal Minds ran back-to-back episodes last week, both episodes lost over the previous week as the show starts to wrap up its series. Carol's Second Act lost another tenth it couldn't afford while The Unicorn gained a tenth.

FOX feasted on Super Bowl ratings, knocking on the door of 100 million viewers, there's a reason every other network ran repeats during the game. The Masked Singer premiered after the game to huge numbers as well. 9-1-1 Lone Star saw a healthy bump, gaining three tenths. Prodigal Son jumped two tenths, while Deputy was steady. LEGO Masters opened well, time will tell if it holds that audience.

The CW saw the return of The Flash last week, down a tenth from its last new episode in December. Katy Keene premiered in Supernatural's regular slot. Needless to say it is not the ratings winner for the network the way the Winchesters are, losing 500,000 viewers in the same time period. Dynasty shed more eye-balls last week as well, barely garnering 300,000 total viewers.

The CW is going to have to do something if it wants to continue as a network. It's always been a bit of a red-headed stepchild to the other four networks (being a joint effort by CBS and Warner doesn't help) but these numbers are simply not good. After this season, The Flash will be the only show on the network that can still pull in a middling audience of a little over a million viewers week after week, and with so little else to draw viewers to the network, even that may not last. 

Advertisers aren't going to waste money on advertising no one is watching. And before anyone says it, streaming deals will only get you so far.

Wow, Katy Keene did not have a big turnout for its premiere... I actually thought the quality of the episode was perhaps a slight improvement from some of the content Riverdale has been putting out recently.
