"Top 100 Shows" - Friday, January 1 2016

Overnights

ESPN was the #1 network on the #1 day of 2016.

  • The 102nd Rose Bowl Game presented by Northwestern Mutual was the #1 program of the day. ESPN's late-afternoon presentation of the revered event averaged a 3.6 rating in adults 18-49 and over 13.5 million total viewers.
  • Ratings for the 2016 Rose Bowl Game telecast, featuring a Stanford blowout of Iowa, were significantly down from the previous Rose Bowl Game (Oregon vs. Florida State). The stakes for last year's Rose Bowl Game were higher though because it also happened to be a CFP semifinal game. This year's Rose Bowl Game was not.
  • The Allstate Sugar Bowl was the second-highest-rated and second-most-watched telecast for New Year's Day 2016, and the #1 program in primetime.
  • The Sugar Bowl, featuring an Ole Miss win over Oklahoma State, averaged a 2.6 rating in the demo and over 8.9 million viewers for ESPN in primetime.
    • As was the case with The Rose Bowl Game, last year's Sugar Bowl was a CFP semifinal contest (Ohio State over Alabama). This year's Sugar Bowl was not.
    • That said, figures for this year's Sugar Bowl are even with the comparable primetime/non-CFP semifinal game. That game was The Orange Bowl, which featured Mississippi State and Georgia Tech.
  • Discovery's Friday powerhouse series Gold Rush was the #1 primetime entertainment program. The original episode averaged a 1.3 in 18-49 and over 4.2 million viewers overall.
    • These figures are up from the December 18th episode, which averaged a 1.2 in the demo and 3.8 million viewers overall.

CABLE

  • Elsewhere on cable - Lifetime aired an original episode of their series Bring It!, which brought in a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.4 million viewers from 9 - 10 p.m.
    • Fellow Lifetime original series Rap Game followed, and averaged a 0.5 in 18-49 from 10 - 11 p.m.
  • HGTV aired original episodes of Fixer Upper, House Hunters and House Hunters International.
  • Food Network aired original episodes of American Diner Revival and Diners, Drive-ins and Dives; History aired an original episode of American Restoration.

BROADCAST

  • ABC World News Tonight was the #1 broadcast program of the evening, defeating NBC Nightly News in the news demo and total viewers.
  • 20/20- Friday also had a big night, finishing four-tenths of a point up from its Christmas Day installment in 25-54  (1.5).
  • Each of the Big 4 broadcast nets televised repeats of their Friday night original series during primetime.
