- CBS’ Sherlock Holmes update Elementary debuted strong with a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demo for 13.41 million viewers.

- Things weren’t all rosy at The Eye, however, as Hawaii Five-0 was way down with a 1.8 rating. That’s a significant drop from last year’s season premiere rating of 3.4 in the coveted 18-49 demo.
- NBC’s J.J. Abrams-produced drama Revolution saw an unsurprising drop in viewers from last week’s season premiere, though the 3.4 rating with 9.21 million viewers shows a healthy hold from last week’s 4.1 rating.
- Unfortunately, ABC’s excellent pilot for Last Resort debuted to a slightly disappointing 2.2 rating with 9.31 million viewers.
Hit the jump for the TV ratings for the week of September 23 – 29, including New Girl, Parks and Recreation, Grimm, Fringe, South Park, Sons of Anarchy, Castle, and much more.

Fox unveiled their new lineup for fall 2012 earlier this morning, and we recently posted full trailers for the network’s new comedy shows. Now it’s time to take a look at Fox’s new dramas, and Kevin Williamson’s (Scream, The Vampire Diaries) serial killer series The Following is most certainly a standout. The trailer is genuinely chilling, and Kevin Bacon stars as an FBI agent who is reeled back into the department after a notorious serial killer (James Purefoy) he put away years ago escapes from death row. The serial killer creates a network of communicating with other active serial killers in the country, thus creating quite the problem for Bacon’s character. Sadly, the series doesn’t debut until midseason so we’ll have to wait a while to check out the full pilot, but I’m beyond intrigued by this trailer.
The other new Fox drama, The Mob Doctor, is decidedly less promising. Jordana Spiro (My Boys) stars as a Chicago surgeon with a lifelong debt to the Southside mob. I wasn’t particularly taken by any of the characters, but I presume the series could eventually prove promising. Hit the jump to watch the trailers.
Yesterday we got a look at what NBC will be offering by way of scheduling and new series this fall, and now Fox has announced their upcoming 2012 schedule. As far as shifts for returning series go, the Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch has been moved to Fridays, while Ryan Murphy’s Glee (which has been on a ratings downslide as of late) has been put in the post-X Factor/American Idol slot on Thursday nights. Moreover, the network announced that Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson will be doing guest star arcs on Glee for the show’s upcoming fourth season.
As far as new shows go, The Office star Mindy Kaling’s new show, currently titled The Mindy Project (hopefully a temporary title), and the new ensemble comedy Ben and Kate will join Raising Hope and the hit Zooey Deschanel series New Girl on Tuesdays for an all-comedy night. I’m a huge fan of New Girl and I’m hoping The Mindy Project will be a nice companion show. Another high profile new series, Kevin Williamson’s serial killer show The Following starring Kevin Bacon, has been slated to premiere at midseason. Hit the jump to get a look at the full Fox schedule.
On the heels of NBC’s busy Monday, Fox is shaking up the schedule in advance of the May 14 upfront presentation:
- Fox renewed the Kiefer Sutherland drama Touch for a second season, joining Fringe, Bones, Glee, New Girl, and Raising Hope on the safe list.
- Fellow freshman dramas Alcatraz and The Finder are cancelled, joining ambitious failure Terra Nova and House in the ether.
- The network picked up three new single-camera comedies (The Goodwin Games, It’s Messy, Ben & Kate) and two dramas (The Mob Doctor and The Following).
