Ghosted scared up 3.6 million viewers and a 1.4 demo rating (per finals) with its Sunday debut, tying CBS’ Wisdom of the Crowd launch (among others) for the night’s entertainment programming win while leading all Fox fare in total audience.
TVLine readers gave the supernatural buddy comedy an average grade of “B.”
Opening Fox’s slate, Bob’s Burgers did 2.9 mil and a 1.3, followed by The Simpsons‘ 3.3 mil/1.4 (average grade “B+”). Leading out of Ghosted, you had Family Guy (2.8 mil/1.3) and Last Man on Earth (2.3 mil/0.9, average grade “B+”).
Over on CBS, Wisdom of the Crowd premiered to 8.8 mil/1.3 (reader grade “C+”). Leading out of that, NCIS: LA christened its later time slot with 9 mil/1.3 (and a “C+” grade), down in audience but up in the demo versus its May finale.
Opening ABC’s odd new Sunday lineup, The Toy Box (2.2 mil/0.4) was down from its freshman average (2.9 mil/0.6, on Fridays) and a far cry from what America’s Funniest Home Videos averaged in the time slot last season (5.1 mil/0.9). Shark Tank‘s two-hour premiere (averaging 5.1 mil/1.3) improved on both Once Upon a Time‘s finale (3 mil/0.9) and Season 6 average (3.2 mil/0.9). Ten Days in the Valley then debuted to 3.4 mil and a 0.5 (reader grade “B”), down from what Quantico did in the time slot a year ago (3.6 mil/1.0) but improving on American Crime‘s Season 3 average (1.9 mil/0.4).
NBC Sunday Night Football (16.7 mil/5.8) was down a tick from last week’s finals.
