Ratings Roundup for the Week of December 5, 2021

957311.jpg

ABC gave an early premiere to Abbott Elementary last week, setting the new comedy series behind a strong lead-in of Live In Front of a Studio Audience. The question is, will that audience remember the show by the time its second episode airs in January? Station 19 lost a couple of tenths with its first new episode in a couple of weeks. Grey's Anatomy was down a tenth. Queens returned after a week off. The good news was it picked up about four hundred thousand viewers from its last new episode. The less good news is that is still lower than what Superstar managed in the same slot. The Rookie and Big Sky were even with their last new episodes.

CBS wrapped CSI: Vegas last week. With no news regarding a back nine order or anything about a renewal, chances are the show will be quietly shuffled off. Ghosts picked up five hundred thousand viewers. The FBI shows returned after a few weeks off. FBI was down a tenth from its last new episode, FBI: Most Wanted and FBI: International were even. NCIS Hawai'i was down a tenth. Bull was even, but as the lowest-rated drama on the network, its chances for a season seven are slim at best.

FOX wrapped Alter Ego and The Big Leap last week. Chances are that's the last you will see of both shows. Our Kind Of People lost a ratings tenth and another three hundred thousand viewers. It will finish its run and limp off into the dust pile of TV history in January.

All American returned after a week off, losing a hundred thousand viewers. 4400 was even.

For example, if there had been a report for today, it would cover the week of December 12, however, there were only a few network shows running new episodes last week. The week of Christmas and the week of New Year's there aren't any. 

Did you have a question about a specific show? If it ran last week, I can find the numbers for you. 

No, I was just wondering. Because I just start following your articles recently. Thanks, though.

The NFL season runs through most of the regular television season, so if we were to skip those weeks, there wouldn't be any ratings news until February. Football does skew things, especially if there is an overrun into primetime hours, but it's also a known variable.
