Two much-hyped premieres got off to two strong starts for Fox and CBS on Monday night.
It returned with a 2.0 rating among the same demographic, a rather big dip from last year’s opener.
On CBS, meanwhile, Scorpion Season 1 Episode 1 brought in 14 million overall viewers and scooped up a 3.3 rating among the key advertising demographic.
It certainly helped to follow a double-episode of The Big Bang Theory, which led the night with 18 million viewers.
- The Blacklist returned with 12.4 million viewers and a 3.4 rating.
- Dancing With the Stars dropped four-tenths from last week’s premiere.
- Forever, one of the least-promoted new shows of the fall, nabbed a 1.5 demographic rating.
- The Under the Dome Season 2 finale pulled in a 1.8 rating, out-rating ABC's Forever.
