TV Viewers: Bachelorette Rise With Swap, CBS Sitcoms Return Low

In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s eventful, special Thursday episode of The Bachelorette hit a season high (with 5.3 million viewers) while hitting the demo high (and tops the night’s non-NFL tariff) with a rating of 1.4; Read the summary.

At CBS, both Young Sheldon (6.5 mil / 0.7, TVLine reader “A”) and Mom (4.7 mil / 0.6, TVLine reader “B”) reverted significantly from their previous averages (Aug. , 7 mil / 1.1 and 6.3 mil) back /0.8), series lows all around. B Positiv debuted at 5 mil and 0.6 (and a TVLine reader rating of “B-“), a tad less than what The Unicorn averaged on the post-Sheldon slot last season.


FOX | Thursday Night Football (8.6 mil / 2.4) rose 9 percent from Fast Nationals last week.

NBC | The superstore (2.3 mil / 0.5, TVLine reader “B-”, read post mortem) immersed itself in the final episode of America Ferrera.

THE CW | Supernatural (1.03 mil / 0.3, read abstract) rose, The Outpost (459K / 0.1) was stable.

The Live + Same Day numbers given in our rating column do not reflect the overall performance of a program as there is increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, as well as viewing outside the home. Instead, these numbers (Nielsen Fast Nationals, unless labeled finals) aim to merely illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: content can be hot!
