Ratings Roundup for the Week of November 14, 2021


The CW premiered The Flash and Riverdale last week. The Flash opened up a bit from where it ended in July. Riverdale opened its sixth season less than a month after wrapping its fifth. The show opened down one hundred thousand viewers from its finale. Walker lost one hundred thousand viewers as well but it's still the show with the highest viewer numbers on the network and is in no danger. All American was even.

ABC had a quiet week last week. The Wednesday comedy block returned after a week off. The Goldbergs, The Conners, and The Wonder Years were all even with their last new episodes. Home Economics managed to pick up a tenth. Queens lost another hundred thousand viewers and is likely done. (Much to the relief of Big Sky, The Rookie, and A Million Little Things, which are also in danger of cancellation at the end of the current season.)

CBS ran repeats for most of the week. Magnum PI and Blue Bloods were even for ratings, though both shows lost a few hundred thousand viewers over the previous week. FBI and FBI: International where both even. FBI: Most Wanted bounced back a tenth after a couple of low weeks. CSI: Vegas not only held its ratings numbers from the previous week but managed to pick up seven hundred thousand viewers in the process. Along with Bull, CSI: Vegas remains the lowest-rated drama for the network, however, which does not bode well for its future.

NBC is playing out the side with Ordinary Joe at this point. No renewal news came for the drama series when La Brea's renewal was announced, so fans should enjoy the last few episodes. La Brea held its ratings from the previous week. New Amsterdam was steady as well.

Expect schedule shuffling as networks head into the holiday season this week. Networks will run mostly repeats for Thanksgiving week, and then the Christmas specials start.

Yeah Magnum is ... Magnum has the same problem as MacGyver, Peter Lenkov took a main character/supporting cast plot and tried to make it an ensemble. It just doesn't work well. 

I love his remake of Hawaii Five-0 and keep hope the others would live up to that standard.

CSI: Vegas is fine, nothing special, but if they want something to get rid of it should Magnum. It started great but every new episode it got worse and worse and then the season 2 ending struck the final blow.
