Ratings: NBC's Mr. Robinson Opens Well, Top Model Returns Steady

Leading out of the well-watched America’s Got Talent, NBC’s Mr. Robinson on Wednesday debuted to 4.6 million total viewers and a 1.2 demo rating, ranking as broadcast’s most watched summer comedy debut since 2007 (CBS’ Creature Comforts) and the No. 2-rated since 2009 (trailing only Undateable).

The series’ second half-hour however slipped to 3.8 mil and a 1.0. TVLine readers gave the comedy an average grade of “C-.”

AGT opened the Peacock’s line-up with 6.9 mil/1.4, slipping two tenths week-to-week but drawing the night’s largest audience. With a weaker lead-in, Last Comic Standing (3.7 mil/1.4) at 10 pm slipped 19 percent in audience and a tenth in the demo.

Elsewhere….

CBS | Big Brother (6.6 mil/2.1) rose 16 and 17 percent versus last Wednesday, while Extant‘s double pump averaged 4.8 mil/0.8, steady week-to-week.

THE CW | Top Model opened Cycle 22 with 1.2 mil and a 0.4, matching its year-ago debut (on a Monday). A Wicked Offer, which apparently is something that aired, debuted to 720K/0.3.

FOX | MasterChef (4.8 mil/1.4) and Home Free (2.9 mil/0.8) each dipped a tenth.

ABC | Celeb Wife Swap (3 mil/0.8) was flat.

    This show will get cancelled because of NBC does not have a hit comedy series these days.

    I haven’t watched Top Model since RuPauls Drag Race came on.
    Practically the same show.
    And RuPaul “winks” at the ridiculousness of it all while Tyra is so so self important and serious.

    I’ll never understand how some of those models get picked. There are two weird looking dudes this season and there was only one last season. I hope they get eliminated soon.

    AGT was actually a “World’s Got Talent” special.
