TV Ratings Report: Legacies Rises, The Good Place Goes Low

at .

The CW's Legacies might have had a soft launch last Thursday, but the spinoff of both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals bucked the trend in week two. 

Legacies Season 1 Episode 2 inched up a tenth to a 0.4 rating (1.2 million total viewers). It looks like the good word of mouth for Legacies Season 1 Episode 1 paid off.

In the demo, the new series held 100 percent of its Supernatural lead-in. 

Supernatural itself ticked up a tenth from last week's fast affiliate rating to a 0.4 (1.5 million total viewers). 

Over on ABC, Grey's Anatomy (6.6 million/1.5 rating) and Station 19 (5 million/0.9 rating) were both steady, while How to Get Away with Murder (2.9 million/0.8 rating) gained a tenth.

There was nothing unusual to report for The Big Bang Theory (12.4 million/2.1 rating), Young Sheldon (10.9 million/1.7 rating) and S.W.A.T. (5.2 million/0.7 rating) which were all on par with their season averages. 

However, Mom (8 million/1.1 rating) slipped for the third week in a row, while Murphy Brown (6 million/0.8 rating) finally stabilized. Chances are that Murphy Brown will not be back for a second revival season. 

It's simply not resonating in any of the key demos, and there's a lack of viewer interest. Networks would be wise to think twice before rushing revivals into production.

Over on NBC, The Good Place (2.7 million/0.7 rating) ticked down to a series low in the demo. The series remains a critical favorite, but if the show goes lower, its future could be called into question. 

Superstore (3.3 million/0.8 rating) inched down a tenth along with Will & Grace (3.5 million/0.8 rating). 

I Feel Bad (2.3 million/0.6 rating), and Law & Order: SVU (4.5 million/0.9 rating) were right on par with their most recent results.
