Fox’s Rocky Horror Picture Show remake on Thursday drew 5 million total viewers and a 1.7 rating (per finals), more than doubling the Rosewood/Pitch combo’s most recent performance yet falling well shy of Grease: Live‘s January numbers (12.2 mil/4.3).
Among TV’s recent musical spectacles, Rocky came closest to NBC’s Peter Pan Live, which did 9.2 mil and a 2.4 in December 2014. TVLine readers gave the Laverne Cox-fronted production an average grade of “C.”
