Chris Rock's episode of 'Saturday Night Live' marks ratings high

Chris Rock might not have been the best host this time around on Saturday Night Live, but ratings-wise, he brought viewers in: The evening’s audience was bigger than it has been since the show’s Feb. 1 episode when Melissa McCarthy hosted.

Besides scoring the show’s highest ratings in metered-market households since that McCarthy episode, the show also ranked high in the target 18-49 demographic, bringing in more viewers than it has since Jim Parsons’ March 1 episode.

'American Horror Story' renewed for fifth season after setting ratings record

It’s very good to be a Freak: FX has just announced that the premiere of American Horror Story: Freak Show has set a record as the most-watched TV episode in the network’s history(!), with 10 million total viewers (6.54 million 18-49), according to Live+3 numbers. That bests last year’s Coven premiere of 7.27 million by 38 percent.

Based on the success of AHS: Freak Show, the network also announced that it will deliver a fifth installment of American Horror Story in October 2015. Co-creator Ryan Murphy told EW last week that he’s already planted clues for next year in the first two episodes of this current season.

ABC 'Black-ish' premieres strong as 'Survivor' surprises

ABC’s launch of the first black family sitcom on a major broadcast network in years got off to a good start Wednesday night. The boldly titled Black-ish, starring Anthony Anderson, opened to strong numbers after the return of Modern Family and ranked as the night’s second highest-rated show.

Black-ish had 10.8 million viewers and a 3.3 rating among adults 18-49 at 9:30 p.m. The big mitigating factor here is the size of its lead-in from Modern Family (10.9 million and a 3.7)—last year’s Super Fun Night, for instance, opened to a 3.2 in this slot and quickly faded. Yet ABC points out Black-ish had the highest-ever retention of Modern Family viewers for a regular comedy debut in this slot.

Opening acts The Middle (7.4 million, 2.1) and The Goldbergs (7 million, 2.3) performed well, while 10 p.m.’s Nashville season 3 opener (5.6 million, 1.5) was down 25 percent from last year. ABC is particularly happy with The Goldbergs, since this is a new timeslot for the show on a different night—yet its rating was the 1980s-set comedy’s second-best ever. READ FULL STORY

'Utopia' ratings drop again: How long will it last?

UTOPIA.jpg

The fall season hasn’t even officially started, and already one heavily-hyped show is looking like a bomb: Fox’s Utopia continued its ratings slide during its Friday night premiere. The reality experiment fell to 2 million viewers and a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49.

Here is the Utopia trend so far: 2.0 demo rating for its Sunday NFL-fueled debut, down to 0.9 for its regular Tuesday time slot premiere, and now 0.7 for its Friday opener. (Utopia will regularly air twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays.)

Since new shows typically drop in the ratings for each of their first three epiosdes (at least), and since each of Utopia‘s time slots has been subsequently weaker, one would have expected each of these episodes to go down. Yet Sunday’s opening number was a disappointment—and the extant of that Tuesday drop was alarming. So now even a little erosion on Friday, expected or no, results in numbers that are deep into the cancellation red zone. Utopia was beaten, for instance, by a repeat of ABC’s Last Man Standing (4.5 million, 0.9).
