Star Trek: Discovery‘s special linear CBS showcase on Sunday night drew 9.6 million total viewers and a 1.9 demo rating in updated finals.
Though exact numbers have not been made available, the new Trek also led CBS All Access — the exclusive home to the sci-fi drama’s second and all future episodes — to a record for subscriber sign-ups in a single day (eclipsing the previous mark fueled by this year’s Grammy Awards). That in turn capped the streaming service’s best week and month ever in new sign-ups.
Leading into Discovery, which TVLine readers gave an average grade of “B,” 60 Minutes‘ 50th season in fast nationals is at 13.5 million viewers and a 2.5 rating, down a tick from a year ago.
Elsewhere, per fast nationals….
NBC | Sunday Night Football’s Redskins/Raiders game (14.5 mil/5.3) is down 28 and 17 percent from the prelim numbers for last week’s Packers/Falcons match-up.
