Ratings: Opposite Almost Human's Strong Debut, Amazing Race Slips and Once Hits Low

Ratings Almost Human PremiereThe future looks good for Fox’s Almost Human, which with its Sunday-night sneak peek drew 9.1 million samplers and a 3.1 demo rating, off about 10 percent from Sleepy Hollow‘s premiere numbers.

That said, inflation due to its NFL lead-in was evident, seeing as Almost Human opened the hour with 10 mil/3.4 and closed it with 8.2 mil/2.8.


Leading out of that, The Simpsons (4.1 mil/1.8) was flat while Family Guy (4.3 mil/2.2) rose two tenths.
