“Family Guy” has the force in its season preem

Familyguyposter1Family Guy” had its force-is-with-you mojo working on Sunday. Animated skein’s two-part season opener, a “Star Wars” spoof dubbed “Blue Harvest, Parts 1 and 2,” drew 10.7 million viewers and a 5.5 rating/13 share in the adults 18-49 demo in the 9-10 p.m. hour, which indicated a high awareness of the seg among a slightly older crowd that doesn’t typically tune in to the toon. (Granted, most of the competish was still in repeats.)

Young auds showed up as well, of course, to the tune of a 7.7/19 in adults 18-34 and 5.3/17 in teens, per prelim Nielsens. In the boys-to-men 12-17 demo, “Family Guy” smoked with 7.8/22. In most key measures, Sunday’s perf marked “Family Guy’s” best numbers since its return to Fox’s air (after its resurrection on Adult Swim and DVD) in May 2005.
