In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ two-hour presentation of the 2022 Daytime Emmy Awards averaged 2.8 million total viewers, up 10 percent in audience from last year’s ceremony yet shy of the tally for 2019’s very virtual telecast (3.1 mil). In the demo, the Daytime Emmys matched last year’s 0.2 rating.
Leading into the kudoscast, Come Dance With Me‘s finale (2.3 mil/0.2) drew its second-best audience of the season while flat in the demo.
ABC’s broadcast of the Stanley Cup Final Game 5 (3.4 mil/0.8) dipped a bit from Tuesday’s prelim numbers but still dominated Friday in the demo.
Elsewhere, Fox’s Friday Night SmackDown (2.1 mil/0.5) ticked down week-to-week… The CW’s Dynasty (450K/0.1) is up sharply, so I am thinking “preemption in some markets.”
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Steve Harvey is not a judge or lawyer and merely offers an alternative forum of dispute resolution.
