TV Ratings: Madam Secretary Hits New Series Low, The Rookie Recovers from Lows

at .

It may be a good thing that CBS is ending Madam Secretary

The political thriller logged just 4 million total viewers and a 0.3 rating Sunday night. 

The latter marks a new series low for the series. 

At An Event - Madam Secretary Season 6 Episode 6

God Friended Me (6 million/0.6 rating) was also on the down side, while NCIS: Los Angeles (6 million/0.6 rating) held steady. 

Are you stll watching this trio of CBS dramas? Are critics still like them. 

Over on The CW, Batwoman (1.2 million/0.3 rating) and Supergirl (0.9 million/0.2 rating) held steady. The pair of superhero dramas are probably coming in a little lower than CW expected. 

Standing By - Batwoman Season 1 Episode 6

However, these ratings are decent for the network in this day and age. Supergirl is recouping some of the losses year-to-year in delayed viewing. 

The Simpsons (6 million/2.1 rating) perked up to match a season high in the demo, while Bless the Hearts (2.5 million/0.9 rating), Bob's Burgers (2.1 million/0.8 rating), and Family Guy (2.1 million/0.9 rating) were all up week-to-week. 

ABC's The Rookie secured 3.7 million viewers and a 0.6 rating, picking up some steam in both metrics.

Kids Say the Darnedest Things (4 million/0.7 rating) and Shark Tank (3.5 million/0.8 rating) were also up a little.
