‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ vs. ‘Young Sheldon’ vs. NFL Football: Everyone’s A Winner in Thursday Night Smackdown — Ratings Watch
It turns out there’s enough to go around ratings-wise on Thursday night. NBC has taken hold of the Thursday Night Football package, which it shares with CBS (both of whom simulcast with NFL Network), and its fortunes on the night have grown substantially. Now with two nights of NFL, plus staples like “This Is Us” and “The Voice,” NBC easily won the week ending November 12 in adults 18-49, and scored its first total viewers victory of the season.

But on Thursday nights, ABC and CBS also have reason to crow in the 8 p.m. hour: “Grey’s Anatomy,” which just hit its 300th episode, remains a potent force. And “Young Sheldon” is developing into a new hit behind “The Big Bang Theory.” (Also in the hour, Fox’s “Gotham” and The CW’s “Supernatural” also perform relatively respectably, although not nearly at the same level).

New Last Jedi Footage Has Leia and Poe Ready to Blow Stuff Up

New Last Jedi Footage Has Leia and Poe Ready to Blow Stuff Up
With exactly one month left until Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters, LucasFilm has unveiled four new TV spots which feature a few new bits of footage. While it seems unlikely that we'll get another full Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, following the second trailer that debuted during Monday Night Football last month, Disney and LucasFilm may likely be releasing more TV spots like this, offering just tiny tidbits of new footage to whet fans' ravenous appetite for any and all things Star Wars. Hopefully these four spots will be the first of many to debut within the next month.

The first TV spot, entitled "Fight," features new footage of Rey (Daisy Ridley) engaged in her training, but at first, she's using her trusty staff that she used in The Force Awakens, before seeing the lightsaber in a satchel, which leads her to start training with that instead,

‘Man With A Plan’ Ratings Match Low In Return, ‘Voice’ & ‘Good Doctor’ Top Demo

As the only debut and real addition to the night, Matt Lablanc's Man With A Plan (1.0/4) was back Monday with its Season 2 premiere as The Voice (1.9/7) and The Good Doctor (1.9/7) were dead even for the demo top spot. On a night that saw Monday Night Football near a season low on Espn, both the NBC competition series and the new ABC drama were matching not just each other but the fast affiliates for their last episodes in the key adults 18-49. The same could not be said…

Ratings: ‘Man With a Plan’ Premiere Has No Blueprint Against ‘DWTS,’ ‘The Voice’
Matt LeBlanc’s “Man With a Plan” returned last night to CBS. Based on its Nielsen numbers, the sitcom may need a better plan. CBS settled for fourth place in the key 18-49 demographic last night, when ABC leapfrogged NBC to finish first outright. They Disney-owned broadcaster was preempted in the Miami and Charlotte markets for “Monday Night Football,” however, so the network’s primetime averages are subject to some extra adjustment, which could shake up the evening’s demo podium. “The Voice,” “The Good Doctor” and “Dancing With the Stars” were the big players between 8 p.m. and 11 p.

‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Near Season Low As Panthers Thrash Dolphins

Once again three of the Miami Dolphins took a knee during the playing of the national anthem and once again the Florida NFL team came up short in primetime. As Michael Thomas, Kenny Stills and Julius Thomas protested in Charlotte, N.C., last night's Monday Night Football felt a bit like a repeat of the November 5 Sunday Night Football game when the Dolphins lost to the Oakland Raiders 27-24. However, unlike that match-up on NBC, Monday's gridiron battle on Espn was a much…

Jordin Sparks Secretly Marries Dana Isaiah, Announces She's Pregnant With First Child!

Jordin Sparks Secretly Marries Dana Isaiah, Announces She's Pregnant With First Child!
And a baby makes three!

Jordin Sparks dropped some major bombshells on Tuesday, revealing that she secretly married her boyfriend, Dana Isaiah, in July and that the two are expecting their first child next spring. "She is deliriously happy," Sparks' rep told Et.

The 27-year-old American Idol alum first broke the news to People magazine, and couldn’t help but gush about her pregnancy. “We’re both really excited," she told the publication. "[Dana]’s been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!’ We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”

The private couple managed to keep their nuptials a secret even when they attended their first red carpet event together in August. Though they don’t mind making the occasional appearance on each other’s social media accounts, they have avoided publicly wearing wedding rings -- or the accessories went unnoticed.

The Deadpool Marketing department has something cooking, and now you can get the recipes!

Most films like start out their marketing with a trailer. Dropping it on YouTube, or during Monday Night Football, maybe even on Facebook. However Deadpool is a horse of a different color. Earlier today they dropped the first poster for the film. But that wasn’t all the marketing they had set up. No the merc with a mouth will be gracing the cover and pages of a magazine.

Apparently Espn Can’t Afford Monday Night Football Any More

It’s said that a ship going down will look for any port in a storm, but for Espn they might as well be stuck in the open ocean with a tsunami building to send them to the depths. As of now the network has announced that it can no longer afford to pay for Monday Night Football, which is a big wake up call to a lot of people and a death knell to the network. The funny thing about it is that they seem to think that playing it off as a good thing is going to be the

‘The Brave’ Ratings Rise, ‘Gifted’ Even; NBC Wins Night Of NFL Pre-Emptions In Demo

Monday Night Football saw a small lift last night and on the Big 4 so did The Brave (1.0/4), Superior Donuts (1.0/4) and the CW's Valor (0.3/1) among others as ABC’s The Good Doctor was absent from the lineup. Coming off a night-topping The Voice (2.0/7), the NBC's military series rose 25% among adults 18-49 from last week. The biggest single uptick of Monday along with Superior Donuts, The Brave certainly had the benefit of a 0.1-rising Voice to give it extra…

‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Steady As Lions Crush Packers, Dips From 2016

It was make or break for the Detroit Lions' postseason ambitions last night at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers, and the Motor City boys put it all out there. Taking on a superstar Aaron Rodgers-less Packers on Monday Night Football, the Lions blocked a kick from Mason Crosby early on and rode the tiger all the way to the end for a 30-17 victory in Week 9 of the NFL season. That secures the team a 4-4 record and a postseason shot, which is likely more than can…

Infinity War Spoiler Finally Confirmed by Chris Hemsworth
If you still didn't get a chance to see Thor: Ragnarok in theaters this weekend, there will be Spoilers for the movie, particularly the ending, so be sure to read on at your own risk. As you know by know from all of the trailers, Chris Hemsworth's Thor already has a much different look in this film, with his long hair completely gone, but by the end of the film, he undergoes another quite drastic change, which the actor revealed will remain intact during Avengers: Infinity War. This is your last chance to avoid spoilers, so read on at your own risk.

During Thor's final climactic battle with the villainous Hela (Cate Blanchett), Thor lost an eye, much like how his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) lost an eye. The actor confirmed in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly that the eye patch will carry over into Avengers: Infinity War,

Baseball Beats Football, At Least For One Week, As World Series Gives Papa John Another Reason To Whine — Ratings Watch

Baseball Beats Football, At Least For One Week, As World Series Gives Papa John Another Reason To Whine — Ratings Watch
The World Series ended in heartbreak for the Los Angeles Dodgers — as the Houston Astros secured their first championship in club history — but it was a tremendous success for Fox. And for at least one week, baseball was once again America’s favorite pastime, dominating over the NFL.

According to Fox, the network averaged 18.9 viewers across all seven games, the second-best audience for a World Series since 2009. The series was down 19 percent from last year’s historic Chicago Cubs win, which also went to seven games (23.4 million), but it topped 2015 by 29 percent (14.7 million) and 2014 by 37 percent (13.8 million).

For the week ending Oct. 29, World Series Game 5 was the most-watched program, at 19.1 million viewers, and second only to “The Walking Dead” in adults 18-49. Among viewers, all five of the week’s World Series games (the final two will be reflected in next week’s ranker), beat the top NFL game of the week.

Ratings: ‘The Good Doctor’ Drops NBC and ‘The Voice’ to 2nd Place
In case you haven’t heard, “The Good Doctor” is doing great in TV ratings.

On Monday, the latest episode of the Freddie Highmore medical drama dropped NBC and “The Voice” to second place in the key 18-49 demographic. Combined with “Dancing With the Stars,” ABC easily topped the night in terms of total viewers as well.

ABC was preempted last night in the relatively small Kansas City market for ESPN's “Monday Night Football.” That makes the Disney-owned broadcaster network’s Nielsen numbers subject to adjustment, though the demo win should hold.

‘Monday Night Football’ Ratings Fumble As Chiefs Beat Broncos

Even though it was the day before Halloween, last night's Monday Night Football was part trick and part treat for the Kansas City Chiefs as the teams snapped a two-game losing streak to pummel the Denver Broncos 29-19. Marcus Peters stayed off the field for the national anthem last night in protest, but his efforts in the game helped seal the deal for the Chiefs' win at home at Arrowhead Stadium. A win that now gives the once unbeaten Chiefs an enviable 6-2 record in Week…

Last Jedi TV Spot Has New Rey, Force Tree Footage
With just over a month left until Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters, a new TV spot has debuted during Fox's coverage of the World Series, that features a few new bits and pieces of footage. While most of the footage has been seen in the first two trailers, there are a few new shots that haven't been featured before. Since it seems unlikely that another full trailer won't be revealed between now and the December 15 release date, so fans will certainly take every last morsel of new Star Wars footage they can get their hands on, and while this TV spot doesn't offer much, something is better than nothing.

The TV spot features a few new shots with REy (Daisy Ridley) and "the Force tree." There was a rumor that surfaced last week that claimed Rey and Luke will fight to the death in The Last Jedi, but

The Walking Dead” remains far, far away from the ratings graveyard. The show’s Season 8 opener, which also doubled as its landmark 100th episode, was the week’s top-rated program among adults 18-49, even leapfrogging over NFL football.

But without the benefit of a major cliffhanger like last season, AMC’s “Dead” plunged from last year’s opener (when [it’s been a year, but spoiler alert nonetheless] Glenn and Abraham were brutally murdered on screen). With three days of DVR and video-on-demand usage included, “The Walking Dead” posted a 6.8 rating in live+3 ratings among adults 18-49 this past Sunday (down from 10.8 last year) and attracted 15 million viewers (down from 20.8 million viewers).

In live viewership, “The Walking Dead” dipped to its lowest-rated premiere since Season 3. The show’s erosion allowed a very different kind of drama to surpass it in total viewers: ABC’s surging “The Good Doctor,” which jumped 52 percent in viewers (from 10.6 million to 16.1 million) after three days of time-shifted playback,

TV Ratings: NFL, 'Big Bang Theory' and 'Good Doctor' Dominate Monday

More good news for the NFL's primetime showings. After a resurgent Sunday Night Football on NBC this week, Espn's Monday Night Football coverage was also much-improved.

Philadelphia's 34-24 victory over Washington averaged a 7.9 overnight rating among households. That's dead even with its showing for the same week last season — and a 30 percent improvement from the fatigued showing a week ago that ultimately averaged 8.4 million viewers. Monday Night Football has been holding its own this season, while overall NFL viewership remains slightly fatigued from 2016's. (That year saw much more significant drops.)
