Ratings: Weak ‘Toy Box,’ ‘Ten Days in the Valley’ Premieres Banish ABC to Last Place Among Big 4

OK “Shark Tank” return keeps Disney broadcaster out of basement among total viewers

ABC might want to throw “The Toy Box” back in the closet. “Ten Days in the Valley” didn’t do much better.

The Disney-owned broadcaster finished a pretty distant fourth place among the Big 4 networks, though thanks to “Shark Tank,” ABC was able to stay out of the basement in terms of total viewers. That unfortunate distinction went to Fox.

NBC dominated another Sunday night due to its primetime NFL football, which had the usual pregame lead-in.

NBC was first in ratings with a 4.3 rating/16 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 12.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. Though due to the nature of live sports, those numbers are subject to change.

CBS was second in ratings with a 1.7/6 and in viewers with 9.8 million. Following an NFL overrun, “60 Minutes” at 7:30 p.m. scored a 2.0 and 12 million viewers. The “Wisdom of the Crowd” series debut at 8:30 had a 1.4 and 8.9 million viewers. At 9:30, the season premiere of “NCIS: Los Angeles” got a 1.2 and 8.5 million viewers. A rerun closed primetime.

Fox was third in ratings with a 1.3/5 and fourth in viewers with 3.4 million. After a repeat, the “Bob’s Burgers” season premiere at 7:30 received a 1.3/5 and 3 million viewers. “The Simpsons” season premiere at 8 put up a 1.4/5 and 3.3 million viewers. The “Ghosted” debut at 8:30 landed a 1.4/5 and 3.6 million viewers. The return of “Family Guy” at 9 had a 1.3/4 and 2.8 million viewers. At 9:30, the “Last Man on Earth” premiere got a 0.9/3 and 2.3 million viewers.

ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.9/3 and third in viewers with 3.9 million. The “Toy Box” debut at 7 settled for a 0.4/2 and 2.2 million viewers. The two-hour “Shark Tank” season premiere at 8 averaged a 1.3/5 and 5 million viewers. The series premiere of “Ten Days in the Valley” at 10 managed a 0.6/2 and 3.5 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.3 million.
