The Simpsons: Season 26 Ratings

13 hours ago | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It's hard to imagine that The Simpsons will ever be cancelled. Despite a decline in the ratings last season, it remained one of Fox's top-rated shows. Will the numbers go up this year or continue to sag? We'll see.

On The Simpsons, the yellow family that never gets older continues to wreak their own kind of havoc on the strange town of Springfield. The voice cast includes Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith, Hank Azaria, and Harry Shearer.

The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available -- typically the following morning, around 11:30am Est/8:30am Pst. Refresh to see the latest.

Ratings: Manning Milestone Big for NBC’s ‘Sunday Night Football’

17 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC dominated Sunday’s ratings race with its San Francisco-Denver matchup on “Sunday Night Football,” with audiences tuning in to see Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning make NFL history by throwing his 509th career touchdown pass. Opposite the game, the dramas on ABC and CBS held steady while Fox’s comedy lineup saw gains.

In Nielsen’s metered-market overnights, the Denver Broncos’ 42-17 victory over the San Francisco 49ers averaged a 14.8 household rating to become the No. 2-rated “Sunday Night Football” game of the football season (behind the Week 1 game between Denver and Indianapolis). The game turned out to be a lopsided affair, with the Broncos expanding its 21-10 halftime lead with three more touchdowns in the third quatrter.

The game peaked with a 17.0 household rating in the 9:30-10 p.m. Et half-hour, when Manning broke Brett Favre’s NFL record of 508 career touchdown passes. He would go on to throw No. »

13 October 2014 12:08 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Once Upon a Time slipped in the ratings in its third outing, but by how much remains to be seen since Nielsen has yet to send out updated numbers after finding an error in its system.

Earlier in the night, America’s Funniest Home Videos returned to 5.4 million and 1.2, even with last year’s premiere. There was some good news for Fox’s lineup, »

Ratings: ‘Once Upon a Time’ Comes Back to Earth

13 October 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After two huge weeks to start the season with its storyline tied to characters from the movie “Frozen,” ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” took a bit of a hit on Sunday. But was still up vs. this time a year ago — as was the net’s three-hour drama block. The night also saw Fox’s “Mulaney” remain low, but at least gained a tenth despite lesser lead-in help.

The Alphabet’s “Resurrection” took a tumble as well, and likely was impacted by the return of AMC megahit “The Walking Dead.” Ratings for the cable show’s season premiere were expected to be issued later Monday.

NBC won last night with “Sunday Night Football,” as its New York Giants-Philadelphia Eagles matchup averaged a 6.0 rating/16 share in adults 18-49 and 16.6 million viewers overall on the net’s stations from 8:30 to 11 p.m., with the final averages expected to be at least 10% higher. »

*Nielsen thus far has only released ABC’s adjusted, glitch-free demo numbers for Premiere Week, adjusting Once down two tenths (to a 3.5) and Resurrection down one tenth (to 2.2).

From Veep to 24: Pop Culture's Female Politicians Ranked

12 October 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Last week, CBS premiered the new political drama Madam Secretary, which stars Téa Leoni as Elizabeth Faulkner McCord, the U.S. Secretary of State. It's hardly a far-fetched concept, as we've seen three female secretaries of state since 1997: Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice and Hillary Clinton. But it's nonetheless rare to see a fictional universe with a woman in one of the nation's top three positions of political power. (Yep, even in fake realities, politics is a man's game.) And historically speaking, Hollywood has played it as a joke more often than not. So which fictional female presidents, vice presidents »

Fox’s ‘Mulaney’ Off to Weak Start Sunday; ‘Once’ Strong, ‘Madam Secretary’ Rises

6 October 2014 9:10 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox’s live-action comedy “Mulaney” opened Sunday to the weakest scores for any of the fall’s series premieres, holding just a little over half its “Family Guy” lead-in and placing fourth among the major networks in young adults. ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” cooled a bit from its hot start to the season but remained the night’s top entertainment series in demos, while CBS’ “Madam Secretary” had a good third week thanks in part to a stronger football-fueled lead-in, and was Sunday’s most-watched entertainment series overall.

NBC won Sunday with its Cincinnati-New England matchup on “Sunday Night Football,” which averaged a 12.8 overnight household rating/20 share in Nielsen’s metered markets despite its lopsided result (the Patriots won 43-17). On its stations from 8:30 to 11 p.m., NBC averaged a 6.9 rating/19 share in adults 18-49 and 18.1 million viewers overall, with the game’s overall averages expected to »
