Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Ratings Deflate 7 Percent From 2016

Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade Ratings Deflate 7 Percent From 2016
Everyone loves a parade — some years more than others. Thursday’s 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade slipped 7.4 percent from last year in the earliest-available Nielsen ratings numbers. Yesterday, the long walk through Manhattan averaged a 12.5 rating/27 share on NBC, per some very preliminary data out of the nation’s 56 metered-markets. Compare that with 2016’s march toward Herald Square, which had actually scored its top overnight rating in 13 years — a 13.5/29. The 2017 parade put up a 7.0 rating among adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters. The year-ago’s version landed a 7.7, which was a...

TV Ratings: Thanksgiving NFL Sees Primetime Fatigue

TV Ratings: Thanksgiving NFL Sees Primetime Fatigue
Thursday's big NFL showdowns dominated Thanksgiving TV but by a slightly smaller margin than in 2016.

The night's prime time game, Washington's 20-10 victory over the New York Giants, was down around 10 percent from the comparable NBC showing in 2016. The game averaged a 9.7 overnight rating among households. It's not as steep of a dip as the one seen last year, but it still stings on a night where little else is happening on TV.

The 2016 game scored a 10.8 household rating for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Indianapolis Colts.

Young Sheldon Review: We Give Thanks For Football

On Young Sheldon, Thanksgiving talk isn’t about the food on the table or the family blessings. In the Cooper household, it’s all about football. It’s only fitting we see Sheldon’s first active interaction in the game with his family. Not that Sheldon would ever willingly touch a football. He is more inclined to do what he does best: math. Usually the Coopers treat Sheldon’s mathematical ingenuity as an oddity in their house, but not necessarily something that directly affects them. Once Sheldon starts using math for something the family loves, even stranger things abound in the Cooper home. Sheldon is

Marching bands are known to be highly entertaining but also demanding since the higher up one goes, from high school to college, the demands that are made are going to be so much more. It
