Monday Overnights: Sluggish Start for CBS Military Drama ‘The Code’

Monday, April 15, 2019
Household Rating/Share
NBC: 4.3/ 7, ABC and Fox: 4.0/ 7 each, CBS: 3.9/ 7, CW: 0.7/ 1
Percent Change from the Year-Ago Week:
Fox: +48, CBS: +15, ABC: – 5, NBC: -10, CW: -30
Ratings Breakdown:
In time period premiere news, new CBS military drama “The Code” got off to a modest start with a fourth-place 3.2 rating/5 share in the household overnights in the 9 p.m. hour. Comparably, this was below recent time period occupant “Magnum, P.I.” (which has been renewed for next season). And it will not translate into much interest in coveted adults 18-49.
“The Code” led into older-skewing drama “Bull” at a dominant 4.8/ 9 at 10 p.m., which bested competing “The Enemy Within” on NBC (#2: 2.8/ 5) and “The Fix” on ABC (#3: 2.4/ 4) by 71 percent and 100 percent, respectively. Chances of second season renewals for The Code.” “The Enemy Within” and “The Fix” all seem unlikely.
In the 8-10 p.m. battle of NBC’s “The Voice” (5.0/ 8) versus “American Idol” on ABC 4.9/ 8), the gap was narrowed to just one-tenth of a rating point in the household overnights. But “The Voice” is expected to hold a greater lead in adults 18-49.
Elsewhere, on-the-fence CBS sitcom “Man With a Plan” (#4: 3.4/ 6) led out of a 4.0/ 7 (#3) for already renewed “The Neighborhood” at 8 p.m. And Fox and The CW were at typical Monday overnight levels as follows:
