Ratings Roundup for the Week of December 13, 2020


CBS wrapped up the pre-holiday week with a slew of new episodes. Young Sheldon ran its first new episode in a month, and lost a ratings tenth for its trouble. B Positive, Bob (Hearts) Abishola, and Mom were also all down a tenth from the previous week. The Unicorn was also down, and fans may want to start worrying. If that number doesn't come up in the new year, the show may be done after two seasons. MacGyver, Magnum PI, Blue Bloods, and SWAT were all even. All Rise and SEAL Team lost a tenth.

NBC's schedule last week was mostly The Voice and holiday specials. The Voice gained a tenth for both its Monday and Tuesday finale episodes. Canadian import program, Nurses, held its low opening. The chances of the network picking up the program as it did with Transplant are slim with those numbers.

FOX wrapped The Masked Singer with a healthy bump, up more than half a point from the previous week. The Simpsons benefited from a good Sunday afternoon football game, though there wasn't an overrun. Bless The Harts, Bob's Burgers, and Family Guy were all up a few tenths as well.

The CW saw much the same as in previous weeks. No show rated higher than a 0.1. Premieres in January can't come fast enough for the network.

And that wraps up the Fall network season, such as it was, for the five main networks. So far, it has been an odd season thanks to filming restrictions, and all of the networks are hoping for more of a normal schedule in the new year. The CW will premiere its new season beginning the week of January 17 with Batwoman, Charmed, and freshman drama Walker amongst others, and will be trickling out other premieres over the following weeks. 

Ratings Roundup is off for the holidays and will return in January.

Happy Holidays!
