ABC 2013-14 Season Ratings

abc-tv-shows-ratingsThe alphabet network hasn’t had much luck launching successful new shows. What’s more, a lot of their existing shows are down year-to-year. Thankfully, the execs can’t cancel everything.

ABC shows (so far): 20/20, 20/20 Saturday, America’s Funniest Home Videos, The Assets, The Bachelor, Bachelor in Paradise, The Bachelorette, Back in the Game, Betrayal, Black Box, Castle, Celebrity Wife Swap, Dancing with the Stars, Extreme Weight Loss, The Goldbergs, The Great Christmas Light Fight, Grey’s Anatomy, Killer Women, Last Man Standing, Lucky 7, Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, The Middle, Mind Games, Mistresses, Mixology, Modern Family, Motive, Nashville, The Neighbors, Nightline Prime, NY Med, Once Upon a Time, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, Primetime: What Would You Do?, The Quest, Resurrection, Revenge, Rising Star, Rookie Blue, Scandal, Shark Tank, Super Fun Night, The Taste, Trophy Wife, and Wipeout.

Note: Here are the ratings for the 2015-15 season shows.

There’s lots of data that ABC execs looks at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series but ratings are the major ingredient.

Check other networks’ rankings:
CBS | The CW | FOX | NBC | ABC Family | TNT


Note: If you’re not seeing the updated charts, please try reloading the page. You can also view them here and here.

A couple of notes about these charts:
These figures are updated automatically as new ratings are released. The averages are based on the final national numbers (live plus same day viewing), unless marked with an asterisk (*). For technical reasons, I have to resort them manually so feel free to let me know if I missed something.

Keep in mind that the demo numbers are typically what’s most important to advertisers. Therefore, that’s how the networks measure success. Advertisers pay more for ad time on a show that has a higher demo rating. Because older viewers don’t count? No, it’s because younger viewers watch less traditional TV and are harder to reach.

Demo numbers are typically reported using the 10ths decimal place (2.4, for example). In the averages, I’m using an extra decimal for easier ranking.

The networks take into account when shows air on Fridays and Saturdays, nights when TV viewership is lower.

What do you think? Are you surprised by any of the ratings? Which shows should be doing better? Which one do you think will be cancelled next?

What a show tonight…and only two left ( sad face!) for Betrayal…..Quite the twists..wow. From what Elaine said….in the preview….I still feel Thatcher killed Lou. Unless that Perkins/Matthew guy did…all that $$ in the fridge. and why is Jack saying he did it…when Sara can prove he did not do it. and……when will Sara get shot?? and by whom??? many questions as Jack would say. We will have to wait !!! really will miss the show.
I hope Sara and Jack end up happily in the home they were in. We can only hope !!!!!

Happy Holiday to all !!!!

Kathi December 16, 2013 at 7:16 pm

Wasn’t that a great show!? I think Jack’s confessing to cover up for his son, Vic. Remember that Vic told him that he knew who killed Uncle Lou? I’m also wondering if there aren’t some really nasty things we’ll find out about Jack. It’s so hard to imagine because his character is so nice and ST is so nice, but he may deserve some hard time in prison. Will Sara wait for him????? Elaine really let Aiden have it, didn’t she? Didn’t give him a chance to do any explaining.

Love the birthday message from ST from his site. Guess he’s off to new things now. His message sure showed that he’s finished with Betrayal.

Sure lots of things to wrap up in 2 episodes! And I keep wondering if Sara will come up pregnant? Wow.

Hope you had a good bday, Mary.

hi Betrayal fans…….happened to see this tonight…while looking for something else. It should have many interviews etc..with S Townsend. You will note his Irish dialect on some.

kathi……snow here…not a lot but makes traveling slippery.
Got a notice from the library today…..two ST movies are in…
Shade….and…Trapped. Will get next week.
Am trying to get organized for Christmas…..trying that is…lol.

Wish Dec 8 would get here….!!!!!

Kathi December 4, 2013 at 2:36 pm

How long does your library hold your “holds”? Mine only does it for 7 days. I bought Head in the Clouds so am anxious for it to arrive. Let me know what you think of those 2 movies.

Reply

mary December 4, 2013 at 6:28 pm

a week for me too for movies…..Have you seen Head in the Clouds ??? good one.
Will get the two there for me soon.
Nasty day here… rain rain rain. At least no snow !!! lol
We see Betrayal this Sunday…then we miss another week….Sound of Music is on…the original.

Reply

Kathi December 5, 2013 at 3:39 pm

I’m glad the networks stop regular programming during holidays in case some of have company or take trips. It’s nice not to have to worry about that (since I have no way of copying).

We are having snow. It’s snowed since 1am and now has stopped I can’t see the mountains because they’re getting it now. It’s very pretty but hasn’t messed up the roads–the best kind of snow.

Yes, I’ve seen Head in the Clouds and didn’t want to buy it at first but the more I think about it…..

I’m voting for Betrayal each time you send that reminder. It’s actually hard because there are about 4 other shows I’d also like to vote on but ST needs me the most!

Reply

mary December 5, 2013 at 5:43 pm

no snow here…but dreary and very cold….due to hit the 20s for the weekend. Not for me !!
I may buy Head in the Clouds also…..there are some nice ST scenes.
Will get Shade and Trapped next week.

Keep voting…..does it even have a chance ??

mary November 28, 2013 at 2:19 pm

saw this on Stuart Townsend Twitter page….very nice…and Happy TGiving to all….

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!
Although I’m not American, I love to celebrate thanksgiving. No matter how many struggles we have in our lives we can always give thanks. And the more we give thanks, usually the more we have to be thankful for. A positive feed-back loop!
I am thankful for all the friends and family in my life, for being on a great show called Betrayal, for living on this beautiful crazy planet called home, and last but not least, to all of you who send me such kind words and positive support. It’s truly a great blessing to know there are fans out there who connect and enjoy the work that I do. Big love to everyone

Seriously! I know you ladies love the Harlequin romance aspect of this show so here is my wet blanket moment. I realize you hate Drew because he worked too much and didn’t give his poor, abused, mistreated, neglected wife enough attention. Let’s face it, he’s just a terrible human being. But two families destroyed, cheating, lying, subterfuge, and did I mention lying. Two people without the guts to sit down and make their spouses listen to their needs. Ooooohhh, yep, so steamy, so romantic. More than 2 decades ago my wife and I had the exact same problem, so I have the t-shirt for this. Fortunately, she loved me enough to come back to me and I love her so much that I wanted her back. We are still married 24 years later and I still fail to see the romance in what happened. And don’t give me that true love, the heart wants what the heart wants, or everyone deserves to be happy crap. I agree that everyone has the right to pursue happiness but an affair is only about selfish instant gratification. Me, me, me, me, me and what makes me happy. I simply don’t understand the goo goo eved response to this show. Try as I might the female mind still eludes me. By the way, a guy’s opinion, Chris is a helluva lot better looking than that creepy Stuart guy. Any honorable man would have told her to take care of her problems at home, (either get a divorce or work them out with your husband) before poaching another man’s love and mother of that man’s son. Sara should have gotten a restraining order on him when he was stalking her. Okay ladies, fire away. I’m secure in my manhood, I can take it.

mary November 19, 2013 at 11:24 pm

quite a tirade…..lol..

a woman’s opinion……both Drew and Jack are good looking men…I prefer S Townsend…Jack.
as for the shows appeal…..read below…..good comments.

http://pinartarhan.com/blog/betrayal-starring-stuart-townsend-hannah-ware-chris-j-johnson-and-james-cromwell-when-soapy-finds-good-acting-chemistry/

The cast is excellent…..and the story lines also. It is a great show to end the weekend…
I for one have had enough football by then. I don’t need more on Sunday eve.

I am glad things worked out for you. There are some divorces that don’t ruin a family…that seems to be a bit melodramatic to me. Sara and Jack are happier
people now.

my thoughts exactly ! and what a show last night !!!!!!!

Reply

Kathi November 18, 2013 at 8:29 pm

Betrayal gets better every week. I think we can safely assume now that Jack and Sara will stay together. They’ve professed their love and already look upon their families as something that they’ll have to work around. When I watch the end of Revenge while waiting for Betrayal, the characters in that show seem so juvenile and the show seems like a soap opera.

And what about ST’s line to Sara, “I’m always thinking about you.” Wow.

Now we have to wait until Dec. 8 for it to return.

Reply

mary November 18, 2013 at 10:56 pm

yes…how will we survive a week….esp without ST !!!
Yes…loved that line also…and when she says…love you..and he says…I like that..say it again.
and when he called her..outlaw..after he bailed her out of jail.
No matter what…I too think they will be together.
They surely did cast Thatcher as that younger guy….really well….looked like he might have looked. and poor Zarek…..glad he is gone.
Thatcher has quite a past !!

Reply

mary December 8, 2013 at 11:58 pm

and Dec 8 came…and omg….what a Betrayal tonight…so much going on…..and how about Elaine and Aidan….wow. Karsten blames Jack for the gun…he wants to get back at Jack. Now they will try to get Val’s friend to talk. Just don’t want to see Jack go to prison. and we have to remember that Sara was shot…and by whom???

Reply

Kathi December 9, 2013 at 5:45 pm

I know, so much going on! I was really surprised about Aiden!!!! Not surprised at Karsten pinning the murder on Jack. He’s going to make Jack pay for leaving him and his daughter. I feared that that was our last episode so was happy to see the previews for next week. How many do we have left?

Kathi November 19, 2013 at 8:33 pm

Isn’t he though? Without being too graphic, he’s almost perfect in the way he’s built, his smile, his sad look, his hands, etc. And he look as though he’s a truly nice person.

Reply

mary December 9, 2013 at 7:39 pm

Kathi…..it is a limited 13 series show..wish there were more. Just hope all ends well for Sara and Jack. I also hope that Karsten gets what is coming to him….for all the stuff he has done. Wonder what Val’s friend will tell the FBI ???

Reply

mary December 9, 2013 at 8:10 pm

you said
I still expect more from TJ about Brandy’s death. He’s not coming unglued like I thought he would. I keep thinking that maybe he’ll kill his dad. Val could really do some damage to Karstan. Of course, she helped Jack that time so she has info on him too. In the previews there was a scene of Jack saying the would talk.

yes…..TJ could do some damage. Maybe Jack will talk. Jules would not have to tell the FBI she deleted files for Jack. She likes Val.

I will enjoy it……it is a limited series as Hostages is…..13 to 15 eps. There is not much more one could do with either one for a second season…so…I will enjoy it while I can.
I see Agents keeps dropping.

michael milton November 15, 2013 at 10:11 am

why are we even talking about Marvel’s Agents of Shield when Betrayal has been at or lower than 1.00 in the important demo graphic for awhile now. Agents of Shield has leveled off like they thought it would. everyone just needs to relax about this show. it is a good show, I think that if they give it a another season the show will get better and better. It kind of reminds me of the comic book series X-Factor. I like the fact that it makes references to the Marvel cinematic universe, but doesn’t try to live off of the popularity of it. i think in the second season it will really take off and be more of its own show.

mary November 15, 2013 at 1:03 pm

Betrayal is my….and others…favorite show. I love the cast…the story lines…the settings…the chemistry..etc. I think the time slot is bad……opposite that darned
football. Haven’t people had enough during the day ???? Sunday nite is to relax
and enjoy a good show.
Mistresses get renewed…and Scandal…guess it is ok to have an affair with the president
and then those comedy shows….some are just plain awful…and they get renewed..or more episodes.
You figure !!!!

Karen……..so agree with you….and I do love the settings. Did you really get to see the filming…..and get to see S Townsend? So good looking.
Scandal gets renewed….and Mistresses..and those awful comedies….and yet….Betrayal is low in the ratings. It is up against that darned football….enough
already. Sunday is for viewing Betrayal !!!!!!!

love to know if he is as good looking in person…..as he is on the show. ..and is he tall or md height ???

Reply

Kathi November 22, 2013 at 5:55 pm

So many actors are not very tall. According to imdb.com, ST is about 5’11” which is average. He appears on the slightly built side even though he’s very well–perfectly–built. I think everyone looks slight next to Cromwell! I sometimes look up the actress in a show and see how tall she is then compare her height to the man’s. Why do we care? I often wonder why I care if a guy is married, etc. It certainly has nothing to do with me but I guess it’s natural to be interested in someone we find attractive! I have this same interest in the actor in The Paradise. He seems like a smallish guy but he’s still sexy and handsome!

Kelly November 8, 2013 at 11:02 pm

I watched the first 4 episodes of Betrayal and I just think it was ‘meh’. I got bored and uninterested. When its up against shows like Revenge, Scandal, the Blacklist, it just can’t pull its weight. Sorry, jmo. I gave it a shot.
