Fox’s ‘Almost Human’ Pads Premiere Totals With Good DVR Gains

With three days of playback, the futuristic cop drama grows to a 4.1 rating in the 18-49 demo

Fox drama “Almost Human” saw a nice jump in early DVR playback for its premiere last Sunday, suggesting that its opening-night sampling was done by more than just the football crowd.

“Human,” an action-driven police procedural set in 2035, bowed Sunday following Fox’s NFL coverage and averaged a 3.1 rating in adults 18-49  in Nielsen’s same-night estimates. It then added 1 full ratings point (or 32%) with DVR playback done on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

The 4.1 rating in L3 makes “Almost Human” the No. 4-rated rookie drama premiere of the season, behind ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” (6.5), NBC’s “The Blacklist” (5.1) and Fox’s “Sleepy Hollow” (5.0).

Among men 18-49, “Almost Human” delivered Fox’s highest-rated telecast across all series this season, rising in L3 from a 3.7 to a 4.8.

In total viewers, “Almost Human” added 2.6 million (or 28%), growing from 9.2 million to 11.8 million.

“Almost Human” fell off to a 2.3 demo rating on Monday in its regular timeslot, but that was still a good number and higher than every other 8 p.m. drama on television with the exception of CBS’ “NCIS.” Early DVR data for that episode was expected to be released over the weekend.
