The new fall shows once again showed little drop-off from week 1 to week 2 on Thursday night. However, that isn’t necessarily saying all that much given that none of them have performed well to date.
On NBC, “Perfect Harmony” hardly budged with a 0.5 rating in the key 18-49 demographic and 2.1 million total viewers, while “Sunnyside” continues to be the lowest rated and least watched new show of the season so far, coming in at a worryingly low 0.3 rating and around 1.3 million total viewers the second time around.
The Peacock’s two other comedies, “Superstore” and “The Good Place,” scored a 0.8 and a 0.6 respectively, while “Law & Order: SVU” rounded out the night with a 0.7 rating and 3.3 million total viewers.
“The Unicorn,” “Carol’s Second Act” and “Evil” all registered quasi-identical ratings as last week for CBS, scoring a 0.8, a 0.7 and a 0.6 respectively. “Young Sheldon” was stable from last week’s series low, coming in at a round 1.0 rating and 8.1 million viewers to take the most watched scripted show crown. “Mom” posted a 0.8 and 6.4 million, building slightly on last week’s viewership tally.
“Grey’s Anatomy” was the highest rated scripted show of the night, coming out on top in a competitive 8 p.m. slot for ABC with a 1.3 rating and 6 million total viewers. It was followed by “A Million Little Things” with a 0.9 and “How to Get Away with Murder” with a 0.5.
Fox aired an exciting “Thursday Night Football” encounter between the Los Angeles Rams and the Seattle Seahawks, which likely contributed a little to the low numbers across the other networks.
