TV Ratings: 'Empire'-free Fox dips as 'Survivor,' 'Criminal Minds' top Wednesday

26 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 25, 2015. The departure of "Empire" from the Wednesday landscape didn't drive audiences back to its 9 p.m. competition, but the spring juggernaut's absence did allow  "Survivor" to carry CBS to victory among young viewers, while "Criminal Minds" led overall. "Criminal Minds" actually slipped slightly from its last original airing opposite "Empire," as did "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" and "Modern Family," which returned from a couple weeks away to a big drops. On the positive side, The CW's "Arrow" rose from last week, but didn't help "Supernatural." Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.9 rating for Wednesday night, tops in the key demographic. ABC and Fox were a close second with 1.7 key demo ratings. NBC's 1.3 key demo rating was good for fourth, followed by the 0.9 key demo rating for The CW. Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 9.15 million viewers and a 5.6 rating/10 share for Wednesday primetime. »

TV Ratings: Huge 'Empire' finale hits series highs for Fox Wednesday

19 March 2015 8:45 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 18, 2015. As expected, Fox's "Empire" couldn't complete its first season without doing what it does best: Rising. "Empire" capped off a remarkable spring run by topping 16.5 million viewers and rising to a 6.4 rating in the key demo for its Wednesday finale, leading Fox to a rout in all measures.  And because this is "Empire" we're talking about, the 8 p.m. hour for the finale already hit series highs and then the 9 p.m. hour rose from there, as "Empire" neared 17.5 million viewers in its final hour. Most of the competition wisely got out of the way of the "Empire" juggernaut, though "Survivor" pretty much held its own and "Arrow" and "Supernatural" were down a bit. With "Survivor" doing two hours, "CSI: Cyber" had to air without a "Criminal Minds" lead-in and took a big drop. Coming out of two hours of comedy repeats, ABC got »

TV Ratings: Tiny 'Empire' demo dip has no impact on Fox's Wednesday domination

12 March 2015 8:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, March 11, 2015. It finally happened. Early morning ratings for Wednesday arrived and "Empire" posted week-to-week declines. Actually, make that "week-to-week decline." Fox's juggernaut slipped a whopping 0.1 in the key 18-49, but also rose overall and helped Fox maintain its more-than-comfortable Wednesday victory margins in all measures. In fact, if you compare this week's Fast Nationals to last week's Fast Nationals, "Empire" was flat among both men and women 18-49, making the 0.1 decline overall most likely an example of too many angels dancing to one side of this particular pin.  An easy explanation for the basically irrelevant decline would be Daylight Saving Time, but both "Criminal Minds" and "American Idol" found a way to still rise among young viewers. In fact, a more likely explanation would be that Wednesday's chaotic "American Idol" might have run an extra minute into the 9 p.m. hour and skewed the sample? »

The Amazing Television Career of Connie Britton

12 March 2015 6:16 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

People have been known to say that there are not very many parts on television for women over the age of 40. Well, obviously those people have never met Connie Britton. The actress, who just recently turned 48 years old, has been on three very popular and successful television series since she turned 40: Friday Night Lights, American Horror Story, and Nashville. She is not the only actress over 40 playing a pivotal role on a successful TV series. There is Julianna Margulies on The Good WifeMariska Hargitay on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and Viola Davis on How to Get Away with Murder. All of these women are Emmy nominated for their roles (we are thinking Davis will come this fall), just like Britton. Here is a look at the back at the successful television career of Connie Britton that dates back twenty years to 1995.

TV Ratings: 'Blue Bloods' tops ABC's 'In an Instant' debut to lead CBS Friday

7 March 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Friday, March 6, 2015. While ABC's "Shark Tank" was, as usual, Friday's top show among young viewers, both "Hawaii Five-0" and "Blue Bloods" beat ABC's special airing of "In an Instant" to help CBS dominate Friday overall and eke out a slim win among young viewers. Mostly Friday was pretty flat, so let's just get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 1.3 rating for Friday night, edging out ABC's 1.2 rating and NBC's 1.1 rating in the key demographic. Fox was fourth with a 0.7 key demo rating, followed by The CW's 0.4 key demo rating for the night. Overall, CBS averaged an estimated 8.99 million viewers and a 5.6 rating/10 share for Friday primetime.

Mariska Hargitay: How Olivia Benson Inspired Me to Help Survivors of Abuse

5 March 2015 10:30 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

For Mariska Hargitay, separating herself from her role as sex crimes detective Olivia Benson can be a difficult task. "Being around that subject matter every day seeps into my consciousness," says the Law & Order: Special Victims Unit star. "When I first did research for my role on Svu, I couldn't believe the statistics of abuse - and the letters that came in from viewers disclosing their own stories." She adds, "I was proud to be on a show that was going into new territory, but I knew I wanted to do more to help survivors heal and reclaim their lives. »

TV Ratings: 'Survivor,' 'Amazing Race' premieres can't halt 'Empire' rise

26 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Wednesday, February 25, 2015. With "Survivor" coming in to seemingly inevitably take a bite out of "American Idol," this looked like a good week for Fox to finally suffer a tiny Wednesday night decline. Nope. While "American Idol" posted a very small drop against the latest "Survivor" premiere, "Empire" remained an unfathomable force-of-nature, rising yet again in both viewers and the key demo as Fox was up week-to-week in dominating Wednesday in all measures. The "Survivor" finale was down in young viewers from the fall launch, but not by enough to even acknowledge. The "Survivor" audience is what it is -- actually up a hair overall -- and in Season 30, that's mighty impressive. On the sadder side, even on a better night and with a lead-in, "The Amazing Race" failed to get much for a bump for its latest premiere, before heading back to Friday. There were nice »

TV Review: ‘Battle Creek’

26 February 2015 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A bit of an outlier for CBS, “Battle Creek” has about as much heft as the prize in a box of cereal, yet it’s also a great deal of fun. A long-dormant, pre-“Breaking Bad” script from Vince Gilligan provides the foundation for this lighthearted series produced under the stewardship of “House’s” David Shore, with Josh Duhamel and Dean Winters well cast as mismatched lawmen. Tonally similar to “Picket Fences,” the concept becomes a bit more mundane as the episodes progress. At least initially, though, the mix of quirky comedy and drama seems nicely suited to its post-“The Good Wife” precinct.

Winters plays Det. Russ Agnew, the standout cop on an underfunded force in the relatively quiet confines of Battle Creek, Mich., whose world is turned topsy-turvy by the arrival of Special Agent Milton Chamberlain (Duhamel), the straight-out-of-central-casting FBI operative stationed there.

TV Ratings: 2015 Academy Awards numbers appear to be down

23 February 2015 9:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Fast National ratings for Sunday, February 22, 2015. Whether it was lack of interest in the nominated films, lack of interest in host Neil Patrick Harris or a third thing that could cause disinterest, overnight ratings for the 2015 Academy Awards were down double-digits from last year's telecast in most measures. Of course, ABC's Oscars coverage still dominated Sunday, which featured only low-rated installments of "60 Minutes" and "Dateline" as new competition. Remember the usual provisos: These are time period-specific numbers for ABC and *not* numbers for the Academy Awards telecast. On the East Coast, the show went over an hour over outside of primetime. On the West Coast, the first 90 minutes of the show were outside of Sunday primetime. The actual numbers for the Oscars will adjust up. They always do. Stay tuned for those real Oscars ratings a bit later. On to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC averaged an 8.8 rating for Sunday night, »
