All of the procedural series on the air hit season highs last night.
Fox led the night by one tenth of a ratings point, with American Idol hitting 9.7 million and a 2.5 rating among 18-49. That led into the series premiere of Second Chance, which held just 4.8 million viewers and a 1.2 rating among 18-49.
All things considered, these results are terrible and don't be expecting Fox to be lenient on this one. It's got a solid lead-in.
And elsewhere around the dial:
- On NBC, The Mysteries of Laura (7.5 million/1.2 rating) was up, while Law & Order: SVU (8 million/2.0 rating) and Chicago P.D (8 million/2.0 rating) both registered season highs.
- On CBS. Two Broke Girls (6.6 million/1.7 rating) and Mike & Molly (7.2 million/1.6 rating) were in line with last week, but Criminal Minds(9.3 million/2.0 rating) hit a season high. Code Black (6.8 million/1.3 rating) lost some ground.
- On ABC, The Middle (7.3 million/1.9 rating), The Goldbergs (6.3 million/2.0 rating), Modern Family (8.2 million/2.6 rating) & Black-ish (6.1 million/1.9 rating) were in line with last week. American Crime (4.3 million/1.1 rating) shed just one tenth.
- And on The CW, it was encores of The Flash (1.3 million/0.4 rating) and Arrow (1.1 million/0.4 rating).
