Ratings: Fox's Does Someone Have to Go Drops, Motive Dips, Rookie Blue and Hannibal Steady

MISSY PEREGRYMRookie Blue and the newly renewed Hannibal got the best news this Thursday night, holding steady in their ratings while all others were on the downside.

ABC’s summertime cop drama drew 5.8 million total viewers and a 1.2 demo rating, matching last week’s numbers and topping the 10 o’clock hour on both counts.

NBC’s Hannibal meanwhile did 2.4 mil/1.0, shedding just a few eyeballs week-to-week.

Thursday’s biggest drop was sustained by Fox’s Does Someone Have to Go, which with 2.6 mil and a 1.0 was down 13 and 23 percent from its debut. Opening Fox’s night, Hell’s Kitchen (5 mil/2.0) was down 11 percent and two tenths.

Elsewhere on ABC, Wipeout (4.5 mil/1.1) and Motive (5.7 mil/1.2) each ticked down a tenth.

NBC’s second double-pump of Anne Heche’s Save Me (2.9 mil/0.7, 2.35 mil/0.6) fell 13 percent in audience versus premiere night, and dipped slightly in the demo.

CBS’ Big Bang Theory repeat (9 mil/2.0) tied Hell’s Kitchen for the nightly demo win while drawing Thursday’s largest audience. Leading out of that, Mike & Molly‘s rescheduled season finale (7.8 mil/1.8) was off 6 and 25 percent from its last fresh Monday episode.

    I really miss Gillian Anderson when she isn’t on an episode of Hannibal. As Hannibal’s own therapist, her character somehow manages to out-ice queen Hannibal himself.

  2. Nick says:

    I really like Hannibal, but wow I guess nobody is watching it…shame because its great, so glad it got renewed.

  3. Sarah says:

    I’m happy that Rookie Blue didn’t fall any, demo-wise. :)

      me too, especially since they’re now off for 3 weeks because of the NBA finals, and last night’s episode was really good!

      • Matt says:

        Last night was awesome!! Waiting 3 weeks is going to be painful!! 😩

      • Bre says:

        Oh thank you! I was wondering why they were going off for three weeks, I almost wish they just delayed the beginning of their season.

        • Maggie says:

          I wish they could have too, but they have 13 episodes and if they’d delayed, the episodes would have bumped into the beginning of the fall TV season. from the interviews that i’ve read though, it sounds like this season is going to get better & better, exciting!

    I’m really liking Motive. I usually don’t watch a lot of TV in the summer but its caught my attention, and I plan to try to keep on watching. The characters are fun and they definitely have the gallows humour happening.

    Just finished Gilian’s The Fall on Netflix… that was pretty good stuff though it left a big cliffhanger in place at the end but it’ll be back next year to finish its story… Somewhat like “The Killing” but she’s great as usual and is overtly sexual.. It’s best not to watch it like I did late at night because it is somewhat slow but really worth it when you hang in there.. Nice thing about Netflix you can easily queue it up again… I could care less about AD… but this show was great..

    Do you know why the Mike and Molly that aired didn’t include the big reveal of them expecting?

  7. Boiler says:

    Can Fox now stop the reality crap and try and stick longer with their scripted shows. Also like Rookie Blue and Motive

  8. Ana says:

    I love Does Someone Have to Go. The show is raw, edited well, and powerfully packed. I DVR the show because it is summer, near the end of the week when I am burn’t out from hearing work gripes, and conflicts with the start of weekend bar specials.

    I catch the show on Monday or Tuesday and I love it! Finally a show that gives us some insight in what others think in a professional, everyday setting that is common to the average Jane. Unlike other reality shows of having to pawn something, supe up a car, get off an island, race around the world, or follow a wannabe celebrity wanting to do soft porn. I actually learn something from the real world experience I watched on this show. Go figure. TV can sometimes teach.
