Ratings Roundup for the Week of October 9, 2022

1066888.jpg

The CW premiered the rest of its fall schedule last week. The Winchesters opened well by CW standards. The test will be if it can hold its audience now that the looky-loos have had a peek. Walker Independence did hold its premiere audience, though, in the current atmosphere, there's no way to know if that will be enough. Penn & Teller: Fool Us opened its ninth season, once again beating most of the rest of the network fare. All American and All American: Homecoming opened with okay ratings but low viewer numbers.

ABC saw most of its shows lose viewers last week. Alaska Daily lost the better part of a ratings tenth and six hundred thousand viewers off its premiere. The Rookie: Feds continued its slide, losing another two hundred thousand viewers. Enjoy what there is, as the show will not be getting any sort of back nine order. The Good Doctor dropped three hundred thousand viewers off its premiere. The show is in its sixth season, it may not see a seventh. Station 19 and Grey's Anatomy both saw diminishing returns, each losing close to one million viewers.

CBS saw signs of life with its rookie shows last week. East New York picked up an additional three hundred thousand viewers. So Help Me Todd found one hundred thousand new viewers. Fire Country was steady, holding its rating and only losing one hundred thousand viewers from its premiere. The Real Love Boat lost half a million viewers, and it wouldn't be a surprise if the network yanks it and burns off the remaining episodes either over the summer or on its streamer. Young Sheldon picked up half a million viewers last week. NCIS and NCIS: Hawai'i each lost three hundred thousand viewers. NCIS: Los Angeles had a late premiere, but even with the lower numbers from the other two, all three are likely to be renewed. CSI: Vegas was steady.

NBC announced a six-episode order pickup for Quantum Leap last week. Ratings for the show were up, though it lost one hundred thousand viewers. La Brea lost four hundred thousand viewers. Law & Order and its spin-offs all saw gains last week and will likely be renewed.

FOX saw a Sunday night bump thanks to an NFL overrun. 9-1-1 lost one hundred thousand viewers but is in no danger. The Resident and The Cleaning Lady were both steady. If there is any good news for fans of Call Me Kat, the show didn't lose any viewers last week, but its chances for renewal are fading fast. Welcome to Flatch somehow found one hundred thousand viewers more last week than the previous week. Monarch was also up with an additional hundred thousand viewers.

I haven't watched sitcoms in years. They all seem to come across as inane and not that funny.

yeah I saw that yesterday. It will get a mention in this week's article, along with the pick-ups for Fire Country, East New York, and So Help Me Todd.

It's certainly not looking good, that's for sure. The problem is, unlike Lucifer (another FOX show so it makes a good example) Call Me Kat does not have an audience number that would be enticing for a streamer to snatch up the show in the hopes of building a subscriber audience. I have the funny feeling Lucifer was one of the last shows to benefit from that phenomenon. Streamers are going to stay with their own content these days as it's cheaper. 

As for another network picking up the show, NBC tried that with Brooklyn Nine-Nine and it's debatable whether or not it was a successful bid. NBC has not had much luck with its half-hour comedies in years, but BNN didn't succeed there either so ...

I really enjoy The Rookie, but The Rookie: Feds is most likely done for me. It just isn't working, IMO. Sure, i'll watch an episode when they cross over (Like this coming week), but I'll not be bothering after that. 

Alaska Daily has been off my radar totally. I might give it a go, as I've heard some good things about it.

The Winchesters, I was looking forward to a lot, and it didn't disappoint. I look forward to each new episode :)

The Rookie was never that strong of a show. It was a surprise to see ABC wanted to try a spin-off. Unless the network is desperate to play in the franchise waters, Rookie: Feds is going to play out its current run of episodes and then disappear. 

Have not tried The Winchesters. Party because I hesitate to get attached to any show on the CW right now (even though I bit the bullet and watched (and liked dangit!) Walker Independence) and partly because what I loved about Supernatural was the brother relationship of Sam and Dean. Not that interested in a romance with hunting. Now, if they had done a prequel with Bobby and Rufus, I would have been all over that! 

It's hard to guess what Nextstar is looking for moving forward. I suspect the superhero shows are all done. The Flash already announced this will be its last season. Superman and Lois was doing well enough, but without other comic book shows to play with, I can see the new ownership passing on more of it as well.
