Live+7 Ratings for Premiere Week: ‘Prodigal Son,’ ‘Stumptown’ Top New Shows

Fox’s “Prodigal Son” and ABC’s “Stumptown” have emerged as the top two new shows in the ratings after seven days of delayed viewing. The former grew 80% from a 1.0 to a 1.8 rating in Live+7, while the latter grew a whopping 143% from a 0.7 in Live+Same Day to a 1.7.

“This Is Us,” “The Big Bang Theory” and “The Masked Singer” came out in a three-way tie for first place at a 3.8 average rating when last season’s Live+7 delayed viewing was all said and done. With “The Big Bang Theory” out of the way, “The Masked Singer” has held on to claim top spot by itself after premiere week, growing 46% to a 3.6 rating, narrowly topping the NBC drama into second place with a 3.4. “This Is Us” unsurprisingly grew more (89%), but clearly not enough to catch up with the flashy Fox singing competition.

In other promising news for this year’s freshman series, both “Evil” on CBS and “Emergence” on ABC doubled after seven days, “Evil” from a 0.6 to a 1.3, and “Emergence” from a 0.8 to a 1.6.

In terms of total viewership, “NCIS” remained as the most watched scripted show of premiere week, while “Emergence” and “Stumptown” were once again the biggest gainers among the new shows.
