Ratings: NBC's Rise Steady in Time Slot Debut, ABC's For the People Slips 25%

Rise Ratings NBC

In its regular time slot debut, NBC’s Rise this Tuesday drew 5.4 million total viewers and a 1.1 demo rating (per finals), down just a tick from last week’s post-This Is Us preview.

Rise was on par with what Trial & Error‘s double-episode launch did in This Is Us’ time slot a year ago; that said, it’s half-hours (6 mil/1.2 vs. 5 mil/1.0) were a bit disparate.

Bookending the freshman drama, The Voice (11 mil/2.2) and Chicago Med (6.9 mil/1.2) were down one and two tenths respectively.

Elsewhere….

ABC | The Middle (5.8 mil/1.4) rose three tenths, black-ish (3.9 mil/1.1) was up two tenths and Fresh Off the Boat (3.6 mil/1.0) ticked up one tenth with its season finale. Leading out of a Modern Family rerun, For the People (2.7 mil/0.6) slipped 16 and 25 percent in Week 2, landing below Kevin (Probably) Saves the World‘s demo average.

THE CW | Leading out of a Flash rerun (as it will do for another two weeks), Black Lightning (1.55 mil/0.5) added a few eyeballs while steady in the demo.

FOX | LA to Vegas (2.2 mil/0.7) was steady, The Mick (2.1 mil/0.7) ticked up.
