In the latest TV show ratings, The Winchesters debuted on Tuesday night to 781,000 total viewers (per Nielsen finals), making it The CW’s most watched season premiere this fall (besting Walker) and not a far cry from time slot predecessor Superman & Lois‘ Season 2 average (820K). In the demo, it scored a 0.1 rating.
TVLine readers gave the Supernatural prequel spinoff an average grade of “B+,” with 90% planning to stay tuned.
Leading out of The Winchesters, the acquired Tom Welling/Brendan Fraser series Professionals made its Stateside debut to 344K and a 0.1.
CBS | FBI (7.4 mil/0.6), International (6.2 mil/0.4) and Most Wanted (5.4 mil/0.4) all were up in audience versus last week, though the latter two were down in the demo. FBI easily copped Tuesday’s largest audience.
NBC | The Voice (6.3 mil/0.6) dipped week-to-week but still landed in a three-way tie for the nightly demo win. La Brea (3.5 mil/0.4) was steady, but New Amsterdam (1.6 mil/0.2) slipped to a demo low and its second-smallest audience ever.
ABC | Bachelor in Paradise (2.1 mil/0.6) ticked up week-to-week, while The Rookie: Feds (1.57 mil/0.2) slipped for a second straight week since its launch. Of some note, though, Feds‘ Sept. 27 premiere saw significant Live+7 playback gains, of 377% (in the demo) and 186% (in audience).
FOX | The Resident (2.7 mil/0.4) was up, while Monarch (1.7 mil/0.2) was steady.
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. Kids, ask parents before calling.
