The first week of September has been the worst for streaming content this year.
The first two weeks of 2018 were also bad for streaming TV shows.
With the exception of a couple of short weeks in November and December, streaming TV ratings are still falling.
The second week of August was particularly bad.
The week ended with only one show, “The Americans,” in the top five shows, and the first week ratings were down 17% from the first two months.
Streaming TV ratings were also down 19% over the second week.
The first two week ratings for streaming shows on Netflix are still below average.
In the second and third weeks of August, “Fargo” and “The Strain” were both in the second top five.
But they are down 16% and 17%, respectively, from the same week last year.
On the other hand, the first three weeks of September saw the most streaming TV show ratings.
ABC’s “The Goldbergs” was in the lead at No. 1 with 4.7 million viewers and the CBS hit “NCIS” at No 2 with 3.9 million viewers.
But “Grey’s Anatomy” fell to No. 2 with a 3.4 million rating.
On ABC, “NCis: New Orleans” and the “Chicago Fire” were in the third and fourth spots on the streaming TV season list.
“Chicago” is the second most popular show on broadcast TV, behind “Hawaii Five-0.”
On CBS, “Big Brother” was No. 3 with 3 million viewers, while “Scandal” and NBC’s “New Girl” were No. 4 and 5 million viewers respectively.
On NBC, “30 Rock” was at No 4 with 2.5 million viewers with “Jane the Virgin” at 7.4.
“The Office” was up at No 5 with 4 million viewers on NBC with “New York.”ABC’s “Big Bang Theory” was the No. 6 show on the list, followed by “Once Upon a Time” with No. 8, “Scream Queens” at 9, and “Superstore” at 10.
The Netflix numbers are also down from last year, which was the worst month for streaming ratings in Netflix’s history.
Netflix had to pay $3 billion to the streaming service to cover the losses of its “The Defenders” series, which is still airing.
Netflix also had to spend $3.6 billion to cover losses in the “Dancing with the Stars” finale.
