CBS’ Tuesday Night Football Ratings Double Clare Crawley’s ‘The Bachelorette’ Premiere

ABC dating show settles for new series low in total viewers, ties all-time low in key demo

ABC can’t really love these ratings from Clare Crawley’s “Bachelorette” premiere, but who knew we’d have NFL football on a Tuesday to contend with?

CBS aired the makeup game last night, leading broadcast in ratings. ABC ended up as the night’s runner up.

Pulling up the rear, on The CW, “Tell Me a Story” Season 2 made its (unsuccessful) broadcast-television debut.

Due to the nature of live sports, the below Nielsen numbers for CBS should be considered subject to heavy adjustment. This data set is not yet adjusted for time-zone differences.

CBS was first in ratings with a 2.1 rating/13 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.9 million, according to preliminary numbers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.1/6 and in viewers with 4.2 million. From 8-10, the “Bachelorette” premiere averaged a 1.3 rating and 4.8 million viewers. A special “Celebrity Family Feud” at 10 drew a 0.6 and 3.2 million viewers.

NBC was third in ratings with a 0.4/3 and in viewers with 3.2 million.

Fox, Univision and Telemundo tied for fourth in ratings, each with a 0.3/2. Fox was fourth in total viewers with 1.3 million, Univision was fifth with 1.1 million and Telemundo was sixth with 1 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.1/1 and in viewers with 641,000.
