Good Girls Ratings

In the latest TV show ratings, NBC’s on-the-bubble Good Girls resumed Season 4 on Thursday night with 1.6 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating, followed by a second episode’s 1.34 mil/0.3 — all told, pretty much on par with this season’s Sunday averages (1.5 mil/0.3).

Opening NBC’s night, Making It‘s Season 3 opener (2.1 mil/0.4) was down a tick from its sophomore averages.

With its freshman finale, Clarice (1.96 mil/0.2; TVLine reader grade “A-,” read recap) — which was rumored to be Paramount+ bound, though those talks are said to have stalled — slipped to its third-smallest audience and matched its demo low.

ABC | When Nature Calls With Helen Mirren debuted to 3.6 mil and a 05, tying a steady Holey Moley (2.6 mil/0.5) for the nightly demo win. The Hustler (2 mil/0.4) ticked up.

FOX | Beat Shazam (1.9 mil/0.4) dipped, while Mental Samurai (1.5 mil/0.4) was up sharply from its most recent Tuesday outing.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Warning: Contents may be hot!
