The Fall 2014-15 TV season is upon us, which means regular TV ratings roundups have returned to Collider. While live ratings are becoming less important as DVR playback, VOD, and digital media are transforming the television viewing landscape, they are still the major determining factor in which network shows succeed and fail. Apologies for the late start this week, but here are the highlights from Wednesday, September 24th:
- The new ABC comedy black-ish debuted rather strong with a 3.3 rating in the 18-49 demo, scoring 10.79 million viewers and retaining a hefty amount of the preceding Modern Family audience. Might ABC have finally found a strong series to pair with its number one comedy?
- Fox’s cancer-centric drama Red Band Society fell three tenths in its second week to a 1.0 rating and 3.4 million viewers.
- NBC’s critically derided The Mysteries of Laura was down half a ratings point in its second week, as the Debra Messing-fronted drama earned a 1.5 rating in the demo and scored 9.9 million viewers.
Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Wednesday, September 24th including Modern Family, The Goldbergs, Nashville, and more.
