Extant Season 2 Ratings

Ratings: Extant Gets a Little Big Brother Boost, Last Comic Returns Strong

Now leading out of Big Brother, CBS’ Extant this Wednesday night drew 4.3 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, dipping in audience yet up a tenth in the demo versus its previous, 10 o’clock outing, while shy of what a Criminal Minds rerun last did in the time slot (4.8 mil/0.8).

Opening the Eye’s night, Big Brother (5.8 mil/1.8) slipped 3 percent and two tenths week-to-week.


FOX | MasterChef (4.4 mil/1.4) dipped 10 percent and a tenth, while the premiere of Home Free (2.9 mil/0.9) improved slightly on Bullseye‘s most recent performance in the time slot.

NBC | Last Comic Standing opened Season 9 with 6.1 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating, its largest audience since its Season 5 finale (circa Sept. 2007) and its best demo number since last summer’s second outing.

Cable ratings (e.g. Sharknado 3) famously come in much, much later, and as merited are reported under separate cover.

      I hope you can catch it on demand or on another platform.. It really was an excellent start to the season.

    I was cautiously optimistic after watching the premiere of Extant but I feel it’s going back down the rabbit hole again. Last night’s episode was awful. Also this season’s houseguests on Big Brother are boring. So sick of these idiots bragging about winning HOH then being to paranoid to nominate anybody. What a joke, lol.
