Post The TV ratings news thread
I can’t keep pace posting it every day with how boring network ratings are, but I will post the important parts

The opening round of Jeopardy: The Greatest of All Time drew big ratings for ABC on Tuesday night — bigger, in fact, than any other primetime series telecast this season.

The limited-run game show, featuring Jeopardy hall of famers Ken Jennings, Brad Rutter and James Holzhauer facing off, drew 14.37 million viewers, the second-largest audience for any entertainment program on the networks so far this season. It trails only Sunday's Golden Globes on NBC, which averaged 18.32 million viewers.

The show's 2.4 rating among adults 18-49 is the fourth-best same-day mark for an entertainment show this season, trailing the Globes (4.7), ABC's Little Mermaid Live (2.6) and the season premiere of The Masked Singer (2.5) on Fox.


Quote:
Elsewhere Tuesday, the premiere of musical dramedy Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist put up so-so numbers for NBC with a 0.6 in adults 18-49 and 2.69 million viewers. The episode will live on streaming for six weeks before the show's on-air return Feb. 16. The premiere of Ellen's Game of Games drew 1.0 and 1.1 in the 18-49 demo for its two episodes and averaged 4.5 million viewers, behind last season's averages of 1.4 and 6.2 million.


Big for Jeopardy and worrisome for Zoey

The XFL - 3.3 million. AAF did 2.9. Probably going to drop like a rock.

Record low in viewership for the Oscars, second lowest 18-49 https://variety.com/2020/tv/news/oscars ... 203499199/

No host makes for a better show but probably worse ratings once you get past the novelty of the first one

Odd considering this had to have been one of the higher grossing BP lineup I can remember.

But also not odd because literally the only thing people watch live now are sports.

Yeah I don't think people are invested in staying with Oscars for 3+ hours and mostly odd hours everywhere.

Awards shows, like traditional talk shows and multi-camera sitcoms, are something people adored long ago because there wasn't anything else to watch and we didn't have so many options. It's kind of odd how so much evolves over time, but the three things I just listed have largely stayed the same in 2020. Ricky Gervais has come closest to infusing life into the horrifically boring award show, but celebrities hate being criticized, so we get James Corden dressed up as a cat, making fun of a film he likely thought would make him a mega star he so desperately craves to be.

Ratings will never go up for something so old-fashioned. People will be invested occasionally if a film they like is up for awards, but that's such a small list of people who care that genuinely.

Speaking of Corden, and I guess I should've guessed this... but apparently he's a fucking dickhead.
