Two new network dramas delivered two very different results on Monday night.
On NBC, Blindspot Season 1 Episode 1 earned a strong 3.1 rating among 18-49-years olds, winning its timeslot in this key demographic and only dropping slightly from The Voice’s 3.5.
Conversely, Minority Report opened as the lowest rated scripted series in this same demographic, only garnering a 1.1 rating. Ouch.
Also on Fox, the Gotham Season 2 premiere yielded a 1.6, down from last year's 3.3 series premiere rating and also down a tenth from the 1.7 of the May finale.
Elsewhere around the dial:
- On ABC, Dancing with the Stars drew a 1.8 rating among 18-49-year olds, down from the 2.3 of last week's premiere. As for Castle Season 8 Episode 1? It earned a 1.2, a steep drop from last season's 2.2 premiere rating. Might we be looking at the final season for Kate, Rick and company?
- On CBS, The Big Bang Theory led all shows on the night with a 4.5 demographic ratings, while Life in Pieces earned a 2.7 among young adults.
- Scorpion garnered a 2.2 rating (down a full point from last September's series premiere), while NCIS: Los Angeles earned a series low 1.2, a major decrease from last year's opener, which earned a 1.9 among the same crowd.
