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.

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.

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.
