UNITED STATES – Slight recovery for the ratings of the American Song Contest in the last qualifying evening, before the semifinals and the final (scheduled for next May 9).
The US spin-off of the Eurovision Song Contest, last night on NBC, was followed in the two hours of live broadcast by 1,534,000 spectators (rating down to 0.27%), better than the disastrous result of the previous week (1,440. 000) but still a bad listening figure.
Women (2.6% rating) follow the event more than men (1.7% rating). On Sunday evening at 7pm, the Monday show will be repeated, with the fourth evening which was followed on NBC by 952,000 spectators (rating of 0.13%).
We always remember that the rating refers to the 18-49 age group, which is the commercial target of reference in the United States of America, the one most coveted by advertisers.
- At CBS, The Neighborhood drew 5.3 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating, holding steady in the demo to tie time slot rivals American Idol and 9-1-1 for the night’s demo title.
- Bob Hearts Abishola (4.8 mil/0.4), NCIS (6.2 mil/0.4) and NCIS: Hawai’i (4.9 mil/0.4) each dipped a tenth in the demo.
- Over on ABC, American Idol (6.3 mil/0.6, read recap) was down a tenth in the demo, while The Good Doctor (3.8 mil/0.4) was steady.
