TV Winners & Losers: September 21st and 22nd, 2014


The 2014-2015 television season has officially begun. It looks like there have been a few surprises so far, and we are only in day 3. Let’s take a look at Sunday and Monday’s winners and losers:



  • Madam Secretary – 14+ million viewers and a 2.0 in the 18-49 demographic. Good debut for a CBS drama.
  • Sunday Night Football – Huge debut with over 19 million viewers and a 7.8 in the 18-49 for millions to watch the Seahawks and Broncos rematch after last year’s Super Bowl.

There were no real losers on Sunday, as most shows will be debuting next week.



  • Scorpion – Call that 2/2 for CBS new dramas. 3.3 in the 18-49 and 14 million viewers tuned into this series that is “based on a true story”.
  • The Big Bang Theory relocated back to Monday during football season and debuted to a strong 5.3 and 5.4 in the 18-49 and around 18 million viewers per episode. While it is slightly down, the show is still a major hit.
  • Gotham on Fox debuted to a 3.2 in the 18-49 and slightly over 8 million viewers. It skews young, and hopefully won’t bleed viewers in the coming weeks.
  • The Blacklist returned to NBC for season 2 with 3.4 in the 18-49 and over 12 million viewers, making it the most watched episode since its series premiere last year.


  • Sleepy Hollow returned low for season 2 on Fox. Only a 2.0 in the 18-49 and 5 ½ million viewers came back.
  • The Voice was down dramatically from last fall season, but the show still is a major hit for NBC. Last year’s fall debut had a 5.1 in the 18-49 with last night at a 3.9.
  • Forever for ABC debuted low with a 1.5 in the 18-49 and only about 8 million total viewers, which is not good for a series premiere.
