With NBC’s Red Nose Day programming proving to be less bulbous than usual, ABC News’ This Is Farrah Fawcett special led the first night of the off-season in total viewers (delivering 5.8 million) while tying a Young Sheldon rerun on CBS for Thursday’s demo win (both scoring a 0.7).
NBC’s Red Nose Day lineup averaged 2.2 mil and a 0.4, down sharply from last year (3 mil/0.7).
Over on CBS, the terminal Life in Pieces (4.5 mil/0.6) slipped to series lows leading out of reruns, while Elementary (4.1 mil/0.5) opened its final season on par with its previous average (3.8 mil/0.5) and down just a tenth from its previous premiere (4.7 mil/0.6).
Elsewhere, Fox’s Paradise Hotel burn-off continued with 1.2 mil/0.4…. The CW’s iZombie (750K/0.2) and In the Dark (590K/0.2) are currently steady.
