Ratings: Reign Returns Low But Steady

Reign Season 3 Ratings

The CW’s Reign christened its new Friday time slot with 950,000 total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating (per finals), down a tick from its previous premiere (which led out of Vampire Diaries on a Thursday) but on par with its sophomore finale (830K/0.3).

Leading out of that — and like everything else, opposite MLB playoffs coverage — Top Model (1 mil/0.3) dipped a tenth.


ABC | Last Man Standing (6.4 mil/1.3) rose a tenth, while Dr. Ken (5.7 mil/1.3) and Shark Tank (5.8 mil/1.5) both slipped about 14 percent and two tenths.

CBS | The Amazing Race (5.9 mil/1.1) and Blue Bloods (10.7 mil/1.3) each rose, while Hawaii Five-0 (9 mil/1.1) was steady.

NBC | Undateable kicked off its all-live Season 3 with 2.54 mil and a 0.8, down from its apres-Voice May finale (4 mil/1.3) but up a tenth from its last episode without a Voice lead-in.
