Ratings: Undateable Makes Good First Impression, Millers Rerun Tops Teacher

NBC’s Undateable received a virtual kiss at the doorstep with its Thursday night debut, averaging 3.8 million total viewers and a 1.3 demo rating — up sharply from Save Me‘s year-ago numbers and marking the best-rated summer comedy launch for any Big 4 network in five years.

In total viewers, the 9 pm episode (3.9 mil) drew the largest audience for a Big 4 summer comedy launch in seven years. TVLine readers gave the new sitcom an average grade of “C+.”

    I watched Undateable and thought it was pretty good. I’ll continue to watch. Another good episode of Gang Related, hope more people start to tune in.

    And people were questioning why CBS didn’t just leave Bad Teacher on the schedule. THIS is why. Because even reruns of other shows will get better ratings.

    I havent watched gang related yet as the ratings are poor. Do you think it has a chance at renewal or cancellation?

    I tried with Gang Related because I love Sung Kang but I just can’t.
