Ratings: Survivor Finale Tops Night, Sing-Off Slips, The 100 Ties Low

20 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

CBS’ Survivor Cycle 29 finale on Wednesday night drew 9.7 million total viewers and a 2.4 demo rating, steady week-to-week but ticking down from its previous two closers.

That said, it dominated the night in both measures (and likely will tick up once 15 minutes of overrun is factored in). The reunion special retained 7.9 mil/1.9.

Over on NBC, the Michael Buble Christmas special (7.4 mil/1.3) popped 48 percent in audience versus last year while steady in the demo. The Sing-Off (5.1 mil/1.3) was down from both last December’s opener (8.4 mil/2.4, on a Monday) and its year-ago telecast (5.5 mil/1.6, on a Wednesday).

Ratings: Michael Buble Scores Most Viewers Ever for His 4th NBC Christmas Special

20 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The CBS “Survivor” finale on Wednesday didn’t just survive — it thrived.

The show topped the night in both the key demo and in total viewers. While it is currently sitting at an all-time finale low for the long-running reality show, a 15-minute overrun — which included the announcement of the winner — took the episode to 10:15 p.m., so it is likely to adjust up in the finals when Nielsen finalizes the timeslots.

Ratings: CW’s ‘Arrow’ Hits Series High in ‘Flash’ Crossover Conclusion

4 December 2014 9:18 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On a night that produced mostly lackluster results elsewhere, CW’s “Arrow” was on the mark Wednesday with the conclusion of its crossover storyline with “The Flash” — surging week to week and hitting a series-high demo score.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “Arrow” averaged a series-best 1.4 rating/4 share in adults 18-49 while drawing its second largest overall audience ever (3.9 million). Week to week, “Arrow” soared by roughly 50% in most key demos as well as total viewers. (One night earlier, “Flash” had one of its best perfs in a while, earning a 1.6/5 in 18-49 and 4.34 million viewers overall).

In the 8 o’clock hour with “Arrow,” CW ranked No. 1 among men 18-34 (1.5/6) and No. 2 in adults 18-34 (1.2/4) and men 18-49 (1.7/6).

At 9 p.m., “The 100″ (0.6/2 in 18-49, 1.9 million) held steady in demos while gaining 18% in total viewers. And overall, this was the CW’s most-watched Wednesday in two years.

TV Ratings: 'Flash' bumps 'Arrow' to series highs as 'Survivor' leads CBS Wednesday

4 December 2014 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, December 3, 2014. On one hand, CBS' double-dose of "Survivor: San Juan Del Sur" came in below season averages, but the two episodes still carried the network to an overall win and a tie in the key demographic. NBC also tied for first among young viewers with "Christmas in Rockefeller Center" and an airing of the "Saturday Night Live Christmas" special.  On the positive side of the ledger, The CW's "Arrow" capitalized on the second part of its crossover with "The Flash" to deliver season highs in all measures, including a series high among adults 18-49. Based on this week's crossover numbers, you can probably expect to see a lot more of that in the future. On the negative side, ABC's full comedy slate was down on Wednesday. Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, NBC and CBS averaged a 1.9 rating for Wednesday night, tops in the key demographic. »

Ratings: Arrow Xover Hits Series High, Red Band Rises, The Middle Ties Low

4 December 2014 8:35 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

TVLine readers gave the episode an average grade of a very, very high “A.”

The 100 led out of that with 1.9 mil and a 0.6, up 20 percent in audience while steady in the demo.

Elsewhere….

Fox | Hell’s Kitchen (3.6 mil/1.2) ticked up a tenth, while Red Band Society‘s winter finale (3 mil/0.9) rose 24 percent and two tenths.

CBS | The two-hour Survivor (8.6 mil/2.1) was flat, »

Weekly Ratings: Pair of NFL Games Lift NBC to Easy Victory

4 December 2014 6:04 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC’s “The Walking Dead” finished fall atop the program rankings last week but a pair of NFL contests lifted NBC to an easy primetime ratings victory. The Peacock dominated in all key demos and even beat CBS in total viewers.

“Walking Dead’s” final firstrun episode until February averaged a big 7.6 rating/19 share in adults 18-49 and 14.81 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen — the zombie drama’s best-ever fall finale ratings but a ways below its most recent season premiere in October (8.7 in 18-49, 17.29 million).

Finishing close behind were NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” (7.4/19 in 18-49, 21.11 million viewers overall for Denver-Kansas City) and the net’s annual Thanksgiving night game (7.4/26 in 18-49, 22.85 million viewers overall for Seattle-San Francisco), with the latter ruling as the week’s most-watched primetime program overall.

(These weren’t the week’s top NFL games, though, as afternoon games on both days fared better than the evening NBC contests. »

Weekly Ratings: Three-Show Crossover Stunt Lifts NBC to Top

19 November 2014 5:48 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC took the sweeps staple of crossover storylines to a new level last week, as a running plot involving characters from the net’s three Dick Wolf dramas produced a ratings surge for each show. The stunt, along with “Sunday Night Football,” “The Blacklist” and three nights of “The Voice” carried the Peacock to a ratings victory in key demos.

In a down week for CBS, NBC also scored a rare victory in total viewers —  its first for a full week in the November sweep since 2002, and its first in any sweep month (excluding Olympics weeks) since the week of the “Friends” finale in May 2004.

“Sunday Night Football,” featuring a great quarterback matchup between Tom Brady’s New England Patriots and Andrew Luck’s Indianapolis Colts produced strong ratings (7.1/19 in 18-49, 20.82 million viewers overall), standing as the week’s No. 2 primetime show in 18-49 and No. 1 in total viewers, according to Nielsen. »

Complex narratives: 6 series that revolutionized television in the digital age

3 September 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The digital age has changed television dramatically within the past two decades.  With the advent of cable channels, home video media, dish on demand and the internet, the average TV viewer has a variety of venues to access television programs. With all these ways to access television shows, the viewing audience has become more aware of repetitive story lines, inconsistency in character development and continuity errors.  In short, these advances in technology have made for a more sophisticated casual television viewer, therefore allowing for the progression of serialized storytelling.

Today’s television writers have a landscape to develop complex narratives beyond the limitations of the episodic format, and now that audiences have better accessibility to these shows, there is a higher demand for serialized storytelling where there wasn’t one before.

Although there have been many television shows that have contributed to the overall progression of the modern serialized television series, »
