TV Ratings Council of Dads

In the latest TV ratings, NBC’s Council of Dads — now leading off Thursdays — ticked up from last week’s irregularly scheduled Episode 2, drawing 3 million total viewers and a 0.4 demo rating. Leading out of that, Blindspot opened its farewell run with 2.1 mil and a 0.3 (TVLine reader grade “A-“, read post  mortem), matching its Season 4 finale’s series lows.


ABC | Millionaire (6.2 mil/0.9) ticked up and led Thursday in the demo. Station 19 (5.5 mil/0.8, read recap) and the penultimate HTGAWM (2.6 mil/0.5, read recap) both dipped.

CBS | The freshly cancelled Man With a Plan (6.1 mil/0.7) and Broke (4.8 mil/0.6), as well as Tommy‘s series finale (5.4 mil/0.5, Season 1 reader grade “A-“), were all flat. A Young Sheldon rerun delivered Thursday’s largest audience, 6.5 million.

THE CW | Katy Keene (471K/0.1) and In the Dark (340K/0.1) were steady in the demo, though the latter slipped to another audience low.
