Aquarius Ratings

Ratings: Aquarius Returns 'Up,' But Low

NBC’s ad-free Aquarius Season 2 premiere triple-play averaged 2.7 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating on Thursday night, which is technically “up” from its Season 1 finale (which did 1.1 mil/0.2, banished to a Saturday) but down a tick from its freshman run average (2.8 mil/0.5). But hey, no commercials/advertisers to carp, so….

For those who want/need to see Aquarius‘ episode-by-episode breakdown, it went: 3 mil/0.5 > 2.7 mil/0.4 > 2.4 mil/0.4.

Slam-dunking Thursday of course was ABC’s NBA Finals coverage, with 16.8 million total viewers and a 6.3 demo rating — up from Game 5’s fast nationals (16.2 mil/6.0) but down from the prelim numbers for last year’s deciding Game 6 (19 mil/7.2). Regardless, monster numbers coming on Sunday.

Elsewhere: Fox’s Bones (3.9 mil/0.7) slipped 15 percent and two tenths to new series lows, while Home Free (2.4 mil/0.6) was down from all its Season 1 numbers…. The CW’s Beauty and the Beast (810K/0.2) was steady.

    Aquarius wasn’t entirely commercial free. Around 10:30 they threw in about three commercials.

    And this is what Bones fans have been saying; Bones is not a summer show. The season premiered in Oct and Fox are still dragging it into June/July, do they think we have nothing better to do than hang around for over 40 weeks waiting for a season to wrap?

    Bones will be lucky to get a 0.5 come July 21, I hate Fox, they could of wrapped it by now with a 0.9 and 4 million viewers like it was getting before being taken off air for two wks ago for American grit double ep, ugh

    I need to rant

      Seriously they should of just aired Bones through the week like POI has been doing, air double eps, but wrap this damn season up Fox. Now.

      Told ya, ranty

          Yep FOX couldn’t care less. This episode should have aired last week not this week and Bones shouldn’t be ending in JULY!!!!. I hope they don’t dip much worse before their finale I also hope some of it was basketball related Really am sad they dipped so bad

    Very disappointed in Aquarius. Don’t think I can even finish the season after last night. It was all over the map and boring. Had high hopes, but it didn’t pan out for me.

    That sucks for Bones. it was a good episode

    I love Aquarius. It is witty, and the side stories are great. Season 1 was a lot better on Netflix.

    Aquarius season 1 was boring. Stopped watching after three episodes. I love David, and like when he is allowed to be himself. Will watch the season 2 premier, and see if it is any better.

    Bones is one of my favs. They’re playing dirty with this show. Wait so long and then it gives us one on week, off the next one or two. Give fans a break. Next season is only half the amount of episodes, and then it’s done. There had better be a quality send off after all these years. Bones’ fans deserve no less.
