Time After Time is not the hit ABC was hoping for.
ABC: Once Upon a Time returned from a lengthy hiatus on par with recent ratings. The two-hour debut of Time After Time (2.5 million/0.7 rating) failed to resonate with viewers.
To be fair, the show hardly got a decent launching pad out of Once Upon a Time. Chances are high that Once Upon a Time could be wrapping up this year.
NBC: Little Big Shots (11.7 million/2.0 rating) returned up considerably from the final episodes of Season 1 last year.
Chicago Justice (7.3 million/1.4 rating) took a hit moving to Sundays, while Shades of Blue (5.2 million/1.0 rating) returned on par with the final episodes of Season 1.
Fox: The Simpsons (2.6 million/1.1 rating) and Last Man on Earth (2.2 million/1.0 rating) were stable, while Family Guy (2.5 million/1.2 rating) ticked up. The series premiere of Making History (2.2 million/0.9 rating) turned in mediocre ratings.
CBS: NCIS: Los Angeles (9.3 million/1.2 rating) ticked up, while Madam Secretary (7.4 million/0.8 rating) and Elementary (4.3 million/0.6 rating) took a hit.
