Top 100 Shows: Tuesday, December 15 2015 (Overnights)

BROADCAST

It was an event-filled night on television. CNN televised yet another Republican presidential debate in primetime, and NBC aired the season 9 finale of The Voice. How did ABC, CBS, Fox and The CW compare? Let's take a look:

NBC – "Bieber fever" made its way to last night's season finale of The Voice, and NBC benefited from a ratings standpoint…sort of.

The Voice matched its May 19 finale in adults 18-49 (2.9) and improved 10% in total viewers (12.7 million vs. 11.55 million).
The Voice was slightly down from its year-ago finale, both in adults 18-49 (2.9 vs. 3.3 on Dec. 16, 2014), and total viewers (12.7 million vs. 12.9 million).
• Despite competition from the Republican debate on CNN, The Voice delivered NBC's biggest audience in the time period since March.
• NBC won Tuesday among the Big 4 networks in all key demos, excluding total viewers.

CBS – It was a solid night for CBS, with the network finishing #1 in average total viewers.

NCIS remained Tuesday's #1 broadcast program in total viewers with 15.5 million. That figure is down from the 16 million who tuned into the most-recent original episode on Nov. 24.
NCIS: New Orleans was up one tenth from its most-recent original episode on 11/24 in adults 18-49 (1.7), and posted a gain in total viewers (12.1 million up from 11.85 million).
Limitless held steady with its 11/24 episode (1.3), and improved in total viewers (6.6 million from 6.5 million).
• These ratings are impressive considering the debate and CBS' series likely share a similar, older-skewing audience.

ABC – The Alphabet went heavy on Christmas-themed specials last night.

A Toy Story That Time Forgot averaged a 1.1 in adults 18-49 and 3.6 million total viewers from 8 – 8:30 p.m.
Shrek the Halls averaged a 1.0 in the demo and 3.3 million viewers from 8:30–9 p.m.
I Want a Dog, Charlie Brown kept its 18-49 audience (1.0) and held total viewers (3.3 million) from 9–10 p.m.
• ABC aired a re-run of Shark Tank from 10–11 p.m. The telecast scored a 0.8 in adults 18-49, 2.5 million viewers.

Fox – Last night, the network aired re-runs of its Tuesday night comedies Grandfathered and The Grinder.

Grandfathered averaged a 0.6 in adults 18-49 and 2.1 million total viewers from 8–8:30 p.m.
The Grinder averaged a 0.5 in adults 18-49 and 1.6 million viewers from 8:30–9 p.m.
Grandfathered averaged a 0.4 in adults 18-49 and 1.4 million viewers from 9–9:30 p.m.
The Grinder averaged a 0.4 in adults 18-49 and 1.2 million viewers from 9:30–10 p.m.

The CW – Similar to Fox, The CW decided to air re-runs of its Tuesday night series The Flash and iZombie.

The Flash averaged a 0.3 in adults 18-49 and 1.3 million viewers in total from 8–9 p.m.
iZombie earned a 0.2 in adults 18-49 and around 580,000 total viewers from 9–10 p.m.

CABLE

  • Last night's GOP debate on CNN won the night in all key measurements and total viewers.
  • The "main debate" from Las Vegas (which kicked off at 8:30 p.m. ET) pulled a 3.8 in adults 18-49, a 4.8 in 25-54 and 18.2 million total viewers.
  • The above figures are down from CNN GOP debate #1 (23.1 million viewers), but they're up from the most-recent GOP debates on CNBC and Fox Business, and up from CNN's presentation of the Democratic debate in October (15.8 million).
  • Anderson Cooper 360 (1.7) was the second highest-rated cable program of the night in adults 18-49. The program averaged a 2.1 in the adults 25-54 news demo and 9.1 million viewers in total.
  • The GOP "undercard" debate on CNN (which started at approximately 6:45 p.m. ET) averaged a 1.0 in adults 18-49, a 1.2 in adults 25-54 and almost 6 million total viewers.
