TV Ratings: Password Has Solid Debut

Password NBC Ratings

In the latest TV show ratings, NBC’s eight-episode Password revival kicked off on Tuesday night with 4.2 million viewers and a 0.5 demo rating (per Nielsen finals), leading out of this summer’s most watched and No. 3-rated program, America’s Got Talent.

Those numbers mark an improvement over what Dancing With Myself averaged earlier this summer in the plum AGT lead-out spot (2.2 mil.0.4), and the total audience — facing no original competition, admittedly —  looks like one of the Tuesday time slot’s largest in… well, quite a while.

It’s also the most watched reality-TV premiere since AGT: Extreme’s 2/21/22 time slot premiere.

Grade Password‘s debut and your intent to stay tuned (Night 2 airs tonight at 9/8c) below!

Opening NBC’s night, America’s Got Talent‘s first live Season 17 episode drew 6.5 mil and a 0.7, holding steady week-to-week; read recap.

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. Steve Harvey is not a judge or lawyer and merely offers an alternative forum of dispute resolution.
