American Gothic Ratings

Ratings: American Gothic Holds Steady in Demo, Grows Audience in Week 2

CBS’ American Gothic avoided the Week 2 drop-off that sister summer series BrainDead suffered, holding steady this Wednesday with 3.6 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating (per finals), now leading out of a Criminal Minds rerun.

In fact, American Gothic added a few eyeballs versus its week-ago premiere, while matching the demo number.

Opening the Eye’s night, Big Brother (6.1 mil/1.9) matched its week-ago season opener.

Over on NBC, The Night Shift‘s double pump averaged 4.5 mil/0.8, down a tenth from last week, leading out of U.S. Olympics swimming trials (5.8 mil/1.2).

Fox’s MasterChef (4 mil/1.2) rose a tenth, while Wayward Pines (2.3 mil/0.7) was flat.

    American Gothic is gonna be a great summer mystery. And I love the cast.

    Is it not a bit stupid to put American Gothic after a Criminal Minds rerun, when they could use Big Brother as a stronger lead-in?

    I’m really beginning to enjoy Wayward Pines. Much like last season, it took a few episodes to find its feet. That female Abbie is creeeepy.

      Last night’s episode was a real turning point. Excellent ep, I love the direction it’s taking.

      Agreed. I almost gave up on this. Yet another S1 character died. And they didn’t even notice! Anyway, the creepy Abbies do bring in another dimension and finally, people are starting to question Filcher (Pilcher? Not sure his name), the founder. Glad I hung in there.

    For season one. The title of the show had the best potential. And a few good actors Start, Madsen stood out most. I get it… entertainment for the viewers. The whodunit scenario. I just felt the whole family involvement was chipping away at my interest.
