Ratings and Scheduling

Recommended Posts

0.8 for hour 1 and 0.7 for hour 2 in the finale. Fine results all things considered. The 10 PM hour is always lower, and the show stayed remarkably consistent once it settled into the 0.8/0.9 range.

Big Brother scored a 1.1 rating at 8 PM last night, better than what Race has been doing. If you ever wonder why CBS gives special treatment to shows like that, look no further. Much, MUCH cheaper to produce and yet better ratings. 

Here's hoping TAR32 doesn't wait another year to air, but I definitely don't think we're seeing it in 2019. Would love to be proven wrong.

Ah but chicken/egg.  CBS promotes BB far FAR more so they should get a bigger audience.  They have never done any decent promo campaign for TAR ever.  If they were creative in the marketing and ads who knows what TAR's ratings would be.

It seems very odd that the finale of a competition would have fewer viewers in the segment that actually reveals the winners. What would motivate people to turn it off before they know the outcome unless all they wanted to know was whether Nicole and Victor were in the final?

There’s a history for TAR where airing at 9pm or then 10pm generated lower overnight ratings than 8pm. We’ll know better in a couple of weeks, but TAR has shown and uncanny ability to gain time shifted viewers to the same levels consistently at live plus seven day viewing in both season 30 and 31. Especially when the finale had an hour of a Big Brother premiere before it.

Question: is there a surefire way for TAR to increase its ratings and still maintain some measure of respectability? Survivor: Island of the Idols has mostly been a disaster, but the ratings have probably inched upward.

I think it's great that TAR will take over the Survivor timeslot. They could have thrown it to the curb on a Saturday night but it's on Wednesday and 8pm which is great. Of course, it was done over a year and a half ago but I'm sure the winners will be happy to get their money. Boy! That was a long wait for them.
