TV Ratings Report: Rush Hour Premieres DOA

at .

CBS's long delayed drama, Rush Hour, finally made it to the air last night, but it pulled in disastarous ratings. 

It pulled in just 5.1 million and a 1.1 rating among people 18-49. That number is in line with what Elementary was doing in the slot earlier this season, but these number are disappointing for a new show.

Earlier in the night for CBS, The Big Bang Theory slid to 14 million and a 3.4 rating, but two episodes of Life In Pieces slid further to 7.5 million viewers and a 1.8 rating. 2 Broke Girls was steady with 5.7 million and a 1.6 rating. 

And elsewhere around the dial:

  • On The CW, Legends of Tomorrow (2.1 million/0.7 rating) was even, but The 100 (1.3 million/0.5 rating) ticked up.
  • On ABC, Grey's Anatomy (7.8 million/2.2 rating) and Scandal (6.5 million/1.8 rating)ticked up, but The Catch (5 million/1.0 rating) dipped from its weak premiere.
  • On Fox, American Idol (9.1 million/2.0 rating) surged.
  • And on NBC, it was the finales of You Me & The Apocalypse (2.8 million/0.6 rating) and Shades of Blue (5.4 million/1.1 rating).
