TV Ratings Report: Not Very Golden

at . Comments

Golden Boy premiered on CBS last night, earning a 1.8 rating in the 18-49-year old demographic and not exactly setting the dial on fire.

As always, however, that network used a double helping of NCIS-inspired drama to win the night in total viewers. By a large margin.
