May Sweeps

Some of you may be interested in the ratings of shows and how they aggregate the numbers. I will try to update this for the May Sweeps as I get information on them.

here's the first few days:

Quote:

Thursday - A18-49 Analysis - May Sweep Day #1: Thursday night included the Presidential News Conference beginning at 8pm. CBS, NBC, ABC and Fox all carried the 8-9p coverage live, while ABC continued its coverage with analysis until 10p. The ratings here do not include the sustained news coverage for each of these networks. With that said, CBS led the night with its 9-11pm programming slate, averaging an 8.0/20 A18-49, according to final numbers from Nielsen Media Research. NBC was five share points behind with a 6.1/15, followed by ABC 2.0/5, UPN1.9/5, Fox and WB 1.6/4. The face off of the evening was between Mark Burnett's Survivor and Mark Burnett's The Apprentice, which ended up with a win for Mark Burnett. Survivor surviving against the Donald 7.8/20 vs. 5.5/14. Fox's Simple Life didn't survive its Presidential lead-in terribly well with an average of a 4 share. CSI and ER also went head to head, with CBC again out front with CSI's 8.3/21 over ER's 6.6/17.

As for news coverage, according to preliminary time period averages from Nielsen Media Research, CBS had 15.2 million viewers tuning in (perhaps mistakenly thinking they would see Survivor), NBC 6.8m, ABC 6.1m, Fox 4.55m, UPN with its regular program lineup of WWE Smackdown delivering 4.47 million viewers, and 3.96 million viewers tuning into WB from 8-9p. ABC's post-press conference analysis hour 9-10p had 5.6 million viewers, more than Fox, WB or UPN for the hour.

FINAL HOUSEHOLD RATINGS: Thursday, April 27, 2005, for all Networks - program averages. Source: Nielsen Media Research. Presidential Press Conference, as sustaining coverage, is not rated by Nielsen. The averages below are for all time periods excluding the network's coverage of the President.

Friday - A18-49 Analysis- May Sweep Day #2: ABC and CBS tied the evening on Friday, each delivering a 2.7/9 A18-49, according to fast affiliate ratings from Nielsen Media Research, measuring time period averages only. NBC was a close #2 with a 2.4/8, followed by Fox 2.2/7, WB 1.4/5, UPN 1.1/4. At 8p a repeat of CSI won the hour for CBS with a 2.4/9, just a notion ahead of ABC's AFV (2.1/8) and two notions in front of NBC's Dateline (1.9/7). CBS also led the 9p hour, again by the same slim margin, with a 2.9/9 for JAG's series finale, followed by NBC's Third Watch (2.6/8) and ABC's hour of Hope & Faith (2.3/7). WB's 930p play of Living with Fran, its newest sitcom, held its own and much of its Reba lead-in audience, this week earning a 1.5/5 A18-49. At 10p ABC was in front with its special report on 20/20 about child stars, earning a 3.5/11, over CBS' 2.9/9 for NUMB3RS and NBC's Trial by Jury (2.5/8).

ABC was second with a 1.9/6 thanks to the Harry Potter movie, followed by NBC 1.8/6, CBS 1.7/5. Fox solidly won both its hours of primetime - 2.6/9 from 8-9p, and a 2.9/9 from 9-10p.
