NBC sets November return for 'This Is Us,' 'Chicago' dramas

  NBC sets November return for 'This Is Us,' 'Chicago' dramas LOS ANGELES (AP) — An optimistic NBC said Thursday it will bring “This Is Us” and other scripted series back in November despite the TV industry's coronavirus-caused production shutdown that's only beginning to ease. Broadcast TV's usual robust September start to the new season has already bowed to the pandemic, with NBC and other networks relying heavily on reality and acquired series that month. “This Is Us,” the family drama starring Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, will kick off its fifth season on Nov. 10, the network said. That will be followed by the Nov. 11 return of the “Chicago” drama franchise: “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” and “Chicago Med.

NEW YORK (AP) — The surest sign of how the coronavirus shutdown has devastated the television industry is the fourth-place finish of CBS in what was nominally the first week of a new fall season.

Emmys again draws its smallest audience ever

  Emmys again draws its smallest audience ever If you thought the highly unusual nature of this year's Emmys might result in a bit of a ratings boost, think again. Sunday's 72nd Primetime Emmy Awards drew a television audience of just 6.1 million viewers, per The Wrap. This is once again the smallest audience in the history of the Emmys, down from last year's 6.9 million viewers, which at the time was a record low. The Emmys this year took place mostly virtually amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with host Jimmy Kimmel and a handful of stars physically at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but nearly everyone else joining the show from various locations via live video feeds.

CBS will wrap the 2018-2019 TV season as the country’s most watched broadcast network in primetime, while NBC won the demo crown. With three days of ratings yet to come, CBS claims Also, a number of sophomore shows fared well including ABC’s The Good Doctor and Fox’s 9-1-1, as

The network's viewership was down a whopping 61% from the premiere week last year, the Nielsen company said.

CBS has essentially been America's favorite television network for two decades. But that success was built primarily on its scripted dramas and comedies, particularly crime procedurals like “NCIS.” The shutdown in TV production because of the pandemic means CBS is struggling to cobble together a competitive schedule each week.

ABC, NBC and Fox were all down from last year, too. But between pro football and the return of some popular unscripted shows like “The Masked Singer” and “Dancing With the Stars,” they weren't hurt as much as CBS. Fox's animated series, including the ageless “The Simpsons,” are also back.

Cobra Kai actor William Zabka teases "unpredictable" season 3 and if Ali will return

  Cobra Kai actor William Zabka teases "Nothing is as it seems"William Zabka – who plays Johnny Lawrence – isn’t giving away any concrete answers yet. However, he told ComicBook.com that the moment where Johnny throws his phone in his ocean, only to have it resurface with a friend request from old Karate Kid flame Ali (Elizabeth Shue), isn’t clear cut.

" Bereft " is the ninth episode of the first season of Young Justice, and the ninth of the overall series. It premiered on March 11, 2011. The Team finds itself wandering the desert of Bialya with no memory of the last six months or of each other.

The ratings drop in late night TV is not all that surprising given that premiere week ratings tanked across the board. For example, the viewership for NBC's hit show "This Is Us" fell significantly in its Season 4 premiere compared to Season 3.

Overall television viewing was down 13% compared to the same week last year, with the decline more pronounced among younger viewers, Nielsen said.

Some scripted series have resumed production and are expected to gradually return to the air. CBS' “FBI” will start fresh episodes on Oct. 6, for example, with NBC's “This is Us” due back Oct. 27.

Technically, CBS was actually the fifth-place network last week, with Fox News Channel reaching more viewers in prime time. Fox News recorded an important milestone as the first cable network to beat all of the broadcast networks in viewership over a three-month period, Nielsen said. That's testament to the popularity of Fox's political programming and the summer cupboard being barren for the broadcasters.

NBC led the season-opening week, averaging 5.5 million viewers in prime time. Fox had 3.9 million, ABC had 3.8 million, CBS had 2.7 million, Univision had 1.14 million, Ion Television had 1.11 million, Telemundo had 1 million and the CW had 570,000.

Fox News Channel dominated the cable networks, averaging 3.73 million. ESPN had 2.91 million, MSNBC had 1.9 million, TNT had 1.82 million and CNN had 1.2 million.

Nielsen has also begun releasing a list of the top shows on streaming services, based on the total number of minutes watched, although the timing lags behind the TV ratings. For the last week of August, Nielsen said Netflix's “Lucifer” was the most popular streamed show, with 2 million minutes watched, followed by “Cobra Kai” and reruns of “The Office.”

ABC's “World News Tonight” won the evening news ratings race, averaging 8.4 million viewers for the week. NBC's “Nightly News” had 7 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 5.1 million.
