These figures mark series lows for the series which averaged a 1.3 rating last season. 

Before that, the final season of Gotham got underway with a 0.7 rating (2.6 million total viewers), on par with last season's average. 

Over on NBC, The Blacklist returned with a 0.9 rating, building a tenth vs. last season's finale. 

The true test will be whether it can maintain these ratings when it moves to Fridays this evening.
