TV ratings for Monday, September 29th are in. Here’s a brief rundown:
- Fox’s Gotham showed a fairly strong hold of its audience in week two (read Dave’s recap here), scoring a 2.8 rating in the 18-49 demo and 7.33 million viewers. That’s a drop of just 13% from last week’s premiere and marks a solid retention of its audience. Sleepy Hollow, on the other hand, was down 15% from last week with a disappointing 1.7 rating and 5.1 million viewers.
- The strongest hold for a new show this week, however, goes to CBS’ Scorpion (read Dave’s recap here), which dipped only 6% from its premiere and garnered a 3.0 rating and 12.23 million viewers. It was second only to The Big Bang Theory as far as scripted programming goes, with the comedy hitting a towering 4.7 rating and 16.18 million viewers for a drop of 13% from last week. Elsewhere on CBS, NCIS: Los Angeles stumbled 37% from last year’s premiere with a 1.9 rating and 9.44 million viewers.
- Over on NBC, The Blacklist was down 18% in its second week, notching a 2.8 rating and scoring 10.66 million viewers. The show is one of the most heavily DVR’d, though, so expect its numbers to go way up once Live+7 ratings are figured.
