Wednesday evening’s TV ratings are in. Here’s a brief look at the highlights:
- FX’s new drama series The Americans debuted strong with 4.7 million combined viewers and 3.22 million total viewers for its premiere broadcast, topping the premieres of American Horror Story and Sons of Anarchy. The network is currently on a roll with original programming, and The Americans looks to be a fine addition to the lineup.
- ABC’s comedy The Neighbors took a drop, scoring a 1.6 rating and 5.25 million viewers which is down four tenths from last week’s 2.0 rating.
- Also down on ABC was Suburgatory, suffering from a lack of a new Modern Family as its lead-in. The episode hit a 1.8 rating and 4.87, dropping four tenths from last week’s 2.2 rating.
Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Wednesday, January 30th, including Arrow, Supernatural, Whitney, Chicago Fire, and more.
TV ratings numbers are in for Wednesday night’s programming. Here’s a brief look at the highlights:
- The second season premiere of FX’s horror anthology series American Horror Story: Asylum got off to an incredibly strong start, with a hefty 2.2 rating in the demo and 3.85 million total viewers, making it the most watched and highest rated episode of the series thus far.
- After a solid yet slightly soft debut, ABC’s much buzzed-about new drama series Nashville saw a pretty steep drop in viewers for episode 2. The ep drew a 2.0 rating and 6.8 million viewers, down a hefty 28% from last week’s 2.8 rating.
- NBC’s new drama Chicago Fire was also down, though the drop was a bit more dramatic given the show’s low premiere numbers. The second episode drew a 1.5 rating an 5.9 million viewers, down 21% from the premiere’s 1.9 rating.
- The CW’s new superhero series Arrow saw a solid hold from last week’s stellar premiere numbers, as this week’s episode hit a 1.3 rating and 3.5 million viewers. That’s even with last week’s premiere.
Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Wednesday, October 17th, including Modern Family, Supernatural, CSI, The Middle, Suburgatory, and more.
A couple of high profile new shows made their television premieres on Wednesday night. Here’s a brief rundown of the highlights:
- The CW’s new superhero series Arrow premiered strong (for The CW, that is) with a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demo and 4 million viewers. That’s a very solid debut for the network, so it’ll be interesting to see how much of that audience holds next week.
- ABC’s high-profile debut Nashville got off to a solid yet slightly disappointing start. Given the pilot’s rave reviews and overall buzzworthiness expectations may have been a tad too high, but the episode scored a 2.8 rating in the demo and 9 million viewers.
- Not breaking any records was the series premiere of NBC’s new drama series Chicago Fire. The episode netted a 1.9 demo rating and 6.4 million viewers.
Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Wednesday, October 10th, including Modern Family, Supernatural, CSI, Criminal Minds, The Middle, The Neighbors, and more.
