Ratings: Promised Land Opens Low, Ordinary Joe Flat With Finale

Promised Land Ratings

Talk about sour grapes. In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s Promised Land premiered to barely 1.9 million total viewers and a 0.2 demo rating, well below the lowest numbers that The Good Doctor ever did (3.6 mil and a 0.4) in the time slot this fall.

TVLine readers gave the Latino family sudser an average grade of “B,” with 84 percent planning to stay tuned. Episode 2 is streaming now on Hulu, but will also air on ABC next Monday night.

Opening ABC’s night, The Bachelor (3.4 mil/0.7) tied Fox’s 9-1-1: Lone Star and CBS’ The Neighborhood for the Monday demo win.


CBS | The newly renewed The Neighborhood (6.2 mil/0.7) hit a season high in audience and ticked up in the demo… the newly renewed Bob Hearts Abishola (5.7 mil/0.5) hit a season high in audience… NCIS (7.5 mil/0.6) drew Monday’s biggest audience and was up in the demo… and NCIS: Hawaii (5.2 mil/0.4, TVLine reader grade “A-” for the two-parter), coming out of Sunday’s plum post-NFL showcase, inched up to its best audience since Oct. 18 while flat in the demo.

FOX | 9-1-1: Lone Star (5.2 mil/0.7, read recap) ticked up, while The Cleaning Lady (3.2 mil/0.5) was steady for a second straight week since its debut.

NBC | Kenan (averaging 1.5 mil/0.3) dipped with its latest double pump, while That’s My Jam and Ordinary Joe‘s season (series?) finale (1.4 mil/0.2, TVLine reader grade “A-“) were steady.

THE CW | The docuseries March debuted to 320K and a 0.1; 4400 (370K/0.0) dipped on both counts.

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.
