Murder‘s freshman run, as it always was envisioned/designed, will thus last 15 episodes, while black-ish will run for the typical 22.
The latest entry from Shondland, Murder debuted to 14.3 million total viewers and a 3.9 demo rating, making it the fall’s No. 1-rated new series. In Week 2, the drama dipped to 12.2 mil and a 3.3.
ABC’s black-ish also bowed with big numbers — 11 mil/3.3, AKA the fall’s top new comedy — and then dipped in its second outing. This week, the comedy rebounded some (to 8.3 mil/2.9), and it still enjoys strong retention out of Modern Family.
Which new series do you think will be next to get a full-season pick-up?
