Monday TV Ratings: SLEEPY HOLLOW Ticks Up, GOTHAM Ticks Down

     January 27, 2015


The TV Ratings for Monday, January 26th are in.  In general, things stayed steady in the ratings from last week, but weather alert pre-emptions in the Northeast make these numbers subject to change.  For now, here are some highlights:

  • A new episode of Fox’s Gotham at 8 p.m. was down a tenth from last week (2.1 in the 18-49 demo, pulling 6.06 million viewers), but that doesn’t mean much.  Anything over a 2 makes the networks happy.  (You can read Dave’s episode recap here).
  • At 9 p.m., Fox series Sleepy Hollow pulled a sleepy 1.4, with 4.31 million viewers.  It’s a small uptick from last week, but it still may not be enough to save the show, which is currently on the bubble.
  • Also at 9 p.m., the CW’s critically-lauded Jane the Virgin brought in a 0.6 with 1.6 million viewers — a tenth up from last week.  Its 8 p.m. lead-in, The Originals, also ticked up a tenth, bringing in 0.7 and 1.7 million viewers.
  • This season of ABC’s The Bachelor continues to deliver steady ratings (2.2 18-49 rating, 7.9 million viewers) from 8-10 p.m., probably because it has one of the most entertaining cast of women in its harem that I’ve seen in years.  “Wrong reasons” make for good television.
  • For cable, HGTV sent out a press release today saying the network has reached a new high mark when it comes to primetime viewers.  The week of January 19th is apparently the highest-rated week HGTV has ever had.  Maybe because of all of that new year, DIY spirit?
