Monday TV Ratings: ‘Supergirl’ Rises; ‘Into the Badlands’ Starts Strong on Sunday

     November 17, 2015


The Monday TV ratings for November 16th are in; here are some of the highlights:

  • First, a cable note from Sunday night: Into the Badlands had a good start on AMC, notching a 3.1 rating and 6.39 million viewers, which is close to what Better Call Saul gained last year (3.4, 6.88 million). And, of course, Into the Badlands didn’t have the  spinoff anticipation of Saul, which means those numbers are really quite good. Now to see if it lasts!
  • On to Monday — at 8 p.m., Supergirl picked up a tenth after a few weeks of decline to notch a 1.8 rating in the key demographic, and 7.87 million viewers for CBS.

    Gotham also got a small boost to a 1.6 rating and 4.37 million viewers at 8 p.m for Fox.

  • Even the CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (which is not the show that title makes it out to be) gained some ground to a 0.4 rating and 1.17 million viewers in that time slot.
  • At 9 p.m., CBS won the hour with Scorpion, even though it was down two tenths to a 1.6 rating and 9.08 million viewers.
  • Fox’s Minority Report at 9 p.m. returned this week to a 0.7 rating and 1.76 million viewers (eeesh), which is not going to be enough to get it extended beyond its reduced episode order.
  • Jane the Virgin on the CW at 9 p.m. was up a tenth to a 0.6 rating and 1.45 million viewers.

  • NBC’s Blindspot continues to dominate the night among scripted series though, pulling a 2.3 rating and 8.19 million viewers at 10 p.m. (even with last week).
  • Also at 10 p.m., NCIS: Los Angeles on CBS notched a 1.2 rating and 7.78 million viewers, while Castle on ABC was close behind with a 1.1 rating and 6.8 million viewers.
