Delayed Viewing Ratings: ABC Claims Five of Top 10 Spots in Key Demo

ABC took home the majority of the top 10 spots in the Live+7 key demo spots in week 5 of the broadcast season, which began on Oct. 23.

ABC’s freshman hit “The Good Doctor” was joined by “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Modern Family,” “How to Get Away with Murder,” and “Designated Survivor” among the biggest gainers of the week in adults 18-49. Of those five, three more than doubled their demo audience: “The Good Doctor” (1.8 to a 3.8), “How to Get Away with Murder” (0.9 to a 2.0), and “Designated Survivor” (0.7 to a 1.7).

In total viewers, CBS claimed five of the top 10 spots as well. “The Big Bang Theory” was once again the network’s biggest gainer in both measures, but was joined in total viewers this week by “Blue Bloods,” “Bull,” “NCIS,” and “Criminal Minds”

It should also be noted that much of Fox’s primetime programming for this week was preempted by the 2017 World Series.
