Ratings Breakdown:
It was all about Fox last night care of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup at a roughly estimated 15.2 rating/27 share in the household overnights for the 7-9 p.m. portion (peaking in the 8:30 p.m. half-hour at a 17.9/30). Combined with Post-Game coverage in the 9 p.m. half-hour (11.3/19) and a 3.1/ 5 for a repeat of “The Simpsons” at 9:30 p.m. (#1: 3.1/ 5) and Fox, overall, beat the Big 3 nets combined by 52 percent in the overnights. As always, results for any live sporting event are approximate.

In the battle of “Celebrity Family Feud” on ABC versus “Big Brother” on CBS, the survey says a 40 percent overnight advantage for ABC. “Celebrity Family Feud” scored a 4.9/ 8 (#2) from 8-9 p.m. compared to a 3.5/ 6 (#3) for “Big Brother.” And both were off by minor percentages from one week earlier (“Celebrity Family Feud”: – 9 percent; “Big Brother”: -10 percent) opposite soccer on Fox. Expect in the vicinity of a 1.7 or a 1.8 rating in adults 18-49 for “Celebrity Family Feud” and about a 1.6 for “Big Brother.”

Comparably, “Celebrity Family Feud” built from a lead-in of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (#3t, 2.2/ 4 at 7 p.m.) by 123 percent. And CBS opened the evening with a 5.1/ 9 in the overnights for older skewing granddaddy “60 Minutes” (#2).

Also on CBS were repeats of the pilot episode of “Zoo” (#2t, 2.4/ 4) and the second season premiere of “Extant” (#3: 1.8/ 3) from 9-11 p.m. And ABC populated the block with recent entry “BattleBots” (#2t: 2.4/ 4 at 9 p.m.: -11 percent from one week earlier) and a repeat of “Castle” (#2: 1.9/ 3).

Since NASCAR on NBC was in a rain delay from 8-11:09 p.m., the NBC portion of this analysis is excluded.

NBC Renews “I Can Do That” for Season Two
NBC has greenlit variety-themed “I Can Do That” for a second season, with an order for eight new episodes for 2016. Benefitting out of “America’s Got Talent” in the Tuesday 10 p.m. hour, “I Can Do That” concluded season one on June 30th with 5.07 million viewers and a 1.5 rating/5 share in adults 18-49, based on the Live + Same Day data (out of 10.74 million viewers and a 2.5/ 9 in the demo for “AGT”). Debuting on May 26, “I Can Do That,” hosted by Marlon Wayans, features six entertainers re-performing various acts live with the public voting on the best of the week. Nicole Scherzinger won the first season of the competition.

Based on an Israeli format, “I Can Do That” is produced by Universal Television.

NBC Cancels “A.D. The Bible Continues”
On the heels of NBC canceling drama “American Odyssey” comes word that the network has passed on a second season of biblical-themed “A.D. The Bible Continues.” From Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, this follow-up to 2013 miniseries “The Bible” struggled to find an audience in the Sunday 9 p.m. hour, with just 3.56 million viewers and a 0.7 rating/2 share in adults 18-49 for its now final telecast on NBC on June 21, based on the Live + Same Day data.

Burnett and Downey are hoping to keep “A.D. The Bible Continues” alive to help launch the digital channel the pair has formed with MGM for a planned debut in late 2016 or early 2017. The actors on “A.D,” which starred Juan Pablo Di Pace, Richard Coyle, James Callis and Babou Alieu Ceesay will be released from their obligations to the show, which may require some recasting if production eventually continues.

“Humans” Premieres with 2.5 Million Viewers on AMC
Following a record-breaking premiere in the UK, “Humans” made its U.S. debut on AMC on Sunday, June 28th with 2.5 million viewers, 1.2 million adults 25-54 and 1.0 million adults 18-49, based on the Live+3 Day ratings (which include three days of time-shifted viewing). Comparably, AMC is now home to two of the five most successful series premieres this season among cable dramas in adults 25-54, with “Better Call Saul” at No. 1 and “Humans” at No. 5. Ranked from No. 2 to No. 4 are dramas “The Librarians” on TNT (2.84 million), “Dig” on USA (1.65) and “Mr. Robot” on USA (1.21).

New episodes of “Humans” air Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on AMC. Produced in conjunction with the UK’s Channel 4 and Kudos, “Humans” takes a look at the advancements in artificial intelligence and the emotional impact that comes as the lines between humans and machines become increasingly blurred.

Reelz to Telecast the 2015 Miss USA Pageant
Following the decision by Univision and NBC not to telecast the upcoming “2015 Miss USA Pageant” comes word that cable network Reelz has acquired the rights to exclusively telecast the pageant live on Sunday, July 12 at 8 p.m. ET.

“The decision on the part of Reelz to acquire the rights to the MISS USA Pageant was based on our belief that this special event, and the women who compete in it, are an integral part of American tradition,” said Stan E. Hubbard, CEO of Reelz. “As one of only a few independent networks, we decided to exercise our own voice and committed ourselves to bringing this pageant to American viewers everywhere. For us, this decision is about the dreams of the contestants who come from all walks of life across the United States, the city of Baton Rouge that has proudly come together to host this pageant and the viewers who will be watching and celebrating its 54th year on television. The “Miss USA Pageant” is a perfect fit on Reelz where movies, entertainment and celebrity come together every day of the year.”

Univision and NBC, of course, dropped the pageant following comments made by Donald Trump in a recent Presidential campaign speech about the immigrant community. And retailer Macys has ended its relationship with Donald Trump as well by nixing Trump’s clothing line for men. While Reelz is an option, distribution in only about 60 percent of the country will likely result in a much smaller audience base than the 5.5 million viewers who tuned in for “Miss USA” on NBC in 2014.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE

“Jurassic World” Remains on Top; “Terminator Genisys” and “Magic Mike XXL” Each Fall from Predecessors
Two new widely released films — “Terminator Genisys” and “Magic Mike XXL” — arrived in theaters over Independence Day weekend, but they each could not knock off the top two films ruling the box office for the past two weeks. Universal’s “Jurassic World” earned $30.9 million at the domestic box office to lead the weekend ending July 5 (according to estimated data from the Rentrak Corporation). The Chris Pratt-led film took 24 days to reach the $550 million mark in North America — the quickest in history to reach the milestone, surpassing the mark of 31 days set by 2012’s “The Avengers.” “Jurassic World” tops 2008’s “The Dark Knight” to rank fourth all-time in overall domestic earning.

Disney/Pixar’s “Inside Out” remained in the runner-up slot for the third week in a row with $30.11 million.

Paramount’s “Terminator Genisys” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke has totaled a disappointing $44.1 million since its July 1 release date. The film scored the worst domestic box office debut for a “Terminator” sequel to-date. Also opening at lower levels than its predecessor is Warner Bros. “Magic Mike XXL” with $27.07 million since its July 1 release date. The sequel, which stars Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer and Jada Pinkett Smith, earned well below the $39.1 million 3-day debut of its 2012 original.
