Unfortunately, the show was down from both cycles from the 2016-2017 season. The two-hour season premiere secured 10.8 million viewers and a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49. 

That was enough to top the night, but there's a good chance it could slide next week when other shows premiere. To Tell The Truth closed out ABC's night with 5.2 million viewers and a 0.9 rating.

Over on NBC, American Ninja Warrior concluded with 5.9 million viewers and a 1.5 rating. Midnight, Texas came to an end with 2.8 million viewers and a 0.8 rating.

NBC has been quiet about the show's future, but it should very much be in the mix for another season. The ratings have never been high, but it has been a reliable performer.
