Somewhat Delayed Ratings: The Naked Man

Sorry this is late – the numbers came out later than usual yesterday morning, and I just haven’t had time. [Heads up - the post about Cobie's pregnancy has been updated to include this link, with some thoughts from Craig Thomas.

Viewers: 9.96 million. The streak had to end at some point - this is down .03 million, or 30,000 viewers, from last week's 9.99 million. [Last week, although the overnight numbers - the ones that were posted here - pegged the audience at 9.84 million, the final number was 9.99.] The slight downturn was partly because of Dancing with the Stars, which aired its final competition show and had about 1.5 million more viewers at 8:30 than at the same time the week before.

Adults 18-49: 4.3/11

Adults 18-34: 3.7/10

Adults 25-54: 4.5/10

Households: 5.9/9

Compared to other networks: First in 18-34, and in everything else, second to Dancing with the Stars, as usual. [But hey, it's over! For now.]

Compared to other CBS comedies: Last in viewers again (although HIMYM was only 70,000 viewers behind TBBT), but first in 18-34, and second in 18-49 and 25-54.

[No CBS section this week, as they didn't say anything beyond stating the numbers.]

This episode will air on November 24. There are nine photos – mostly they’re standard MacLaren’s shots, but two of them are mildly spoilery. [You'll recognize one of the show's recurring elements, but it's not central to the episode's plot.]
