I didn't see The Herd listed here.
Colin has been on vacation and Jason McIntyre has been the lead.
Looks like he might not be prime time player.

Elsbeth should be cancelled or shifted to streaming. Walker should be picked up by CBS (or offered to other networks/streamers. Two more seasons and it's syndication ready.)
NCIS:Hawaii should be uncancelled. Matlock will fail. It's Harry's Law 2.0. Even Blue Bloods should be granted an additional 1/2 season given NCIS: Sydney isn't a strong tentpole for Friday. Blue Bloods sucks but syndicates well.

Amazing how David Muir is America's top show becoming Cronkite 2.0 and besting NBC. Especially suprising because ABC entertainment is in 5th place.
These ratings demonstrate that a majority of Americans don't watch TV whether entertainment, sports, cable news. They either stream, play video games, play on social media or live healthy lives reading and actually doing stuff.
Also Amazing is how CBS daytime game shows now bv eat much of prime time. They are introduction a new soap, might do well on streaming; however, another game show might be the best idea.

'The Five' is at #11, it's on at 5 p.m. EST and it's #11.


Jun 29, 2024 22:39 EST

Where's "The Five"? Did the Communists pull it?

I find it interesting that there were over 50 shows that had less people watching nationally than I used to have listening to me on a local radio show! Interesting!


Jun 4, 2024 07:30 EST

Neilson Media Research chooses a random sample of diverse American households and installs meters
to keep track of what's being watched. The ACTUAL number of Americans watching these shows is not
known, since a company like Neilson cannot know what hundreds of millions of viewers (including
you and me) are watching.


May 19, 2024 07:51 EST

The Tonight Show got 3 1/2 million viewers, that's not bad. What did Colbert and Kimmel get? I don't see it listed.

Rather odd that When Calls The Heart is counted Live on both Cable on Sunday and streaming on Monday. Seams that it should only be counted on either day NOT both!! That makes it a disadvantage to other shows that are only counted live on Sunday!!

The NFC Championship fills numbers 1 - 3 of the top 500+ shows, but the AFC Championship is not listed. Is that an oversight or personal opinion?

Steve Platt

Feb 7, 2024 18:45 EST

Folks, Chris Wallace is now on CNN. His show is up 17%

At 234 with less than half a million He's getting beat by Top Chef.

…what happened to the Neilson ratings?They were great readings and showed the times of the shows along with the rankings..Neilson must return so true and accurate ratings can be viewed…


Oct 18, 2023 14:00 EST

Cable is dead, it's all about streaming.
Funny how the first scripted show is Yellowstone, a white cowboy show.
Blacks, feminists, and New York City Media killed cable.

The Young and the Restless costing roughly $100,000 is a Top 40 beating Grey's Anatomy and SVU. Primetime numbers have crashed so much that cancelled As the World Turns, even cheaper to film, would be a top 50 still beating NCIS Hawaii
