It looks like Bombshell bombed both on screen and in real life last night, as the Smash Season 2 premiere sank to a 1.1 rating among 18-49-year olds and garnered just 4.5 million viewers overall. That's a 70% drop from the Season 1 opener.
Both figures are below the Parenthood season finale that aired in that same time slot last month, which is great news for Braverman fans... and less than great news for Broadway-on-television fans.
NCIS Los Angeles: 16.5 million
Smash: 4.5 million
New Girl: 4.8 million/The Mindy Project: 3.6 million
The Bachelor: 7.7 million
Emily Owens M.D.: 1.5 million
Vegas: 10.1 million
Smash: 4 million
