Top 100 Primetime Telecasts

  • Last night's edition of Monday Night Football was by far the #1 program of the night. The telecast averaged a 5.2 rating in P18-49 and 13.9 million total viewers, significantly up from the 4.5 P18-49 rating and 12.2 million who tuned into Steelers/Chargers on October 12th.This discrepancy is a bit surprising, considering the game was a blowout as the Eagles trounced the  Giants, 27-7. Chargers/Steelers was a far more competitive game.It's been suggested that the program received a lift from the placement of the highly anticipated final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens during halftime.
  • The Big Bang Theory (3.9) was the #1 entertainment program of the night, holding steady in P18-49.
  • Fellow CBS series Life in Pieces (2.1) had a strong night, up three-tenths from the previous week.
  • Scorpion (1.8) also improved from the previous week, up one-tenth.
  • On NBC, The Voice (3.0) fell two-tenths of a point from the previous Monday. The score is a season-low.
  • Blindspot (2.1) struggled even more, falling four-tenths of a point from the previous week. The 2.1 is a series-low.
