The 18-49 demo was also strong with a 2.1 rating. As things stand now, BH90210 is the #1 summer series premiere in more than two years. The previous winner was World of Dance in 2017 which pulled in a 3.0 rating. 

Even more impressive is the streaming numbers. With three days of Fox Now and Hulu viewers added BH90210 clocked an additional 879,000 views.

Time will tell whether the series keeps up the pace, but the good news is that reaction has been mostly positive. 

By The Sea - BH90210 Season 1 Episode 2

Let's take a look at some of other TV Fanatic favorites to assess how they are faring this summer season. 


The series is drawing rave reviews from TV Fanatic's Carissa Pavlica, and it remains a bonafide hit in its second season.

Yellowstone Season 2 is up 30 percent year-to-year in live + same day figures. It is currently averaging 2.3 million total viewers and a 0.5 rating. 

Together Again - Yellowstone Season 2 Episode 7

In live + 7, however, these numbers are catapulting around 200% with some episodes reaching a 1.3 rating. 

It makes sense then that the show has already gotten renewed for a third season. 

Grand Hotel

Grand Hotel Season 1 is averaging 3 million total viewers and a 0.6 rating in live + same day. It is getting decent gains of around 60 percent when live + 7 is factored.

While those numbers may seem decent for summer, we need to take into consideration that the show lost a lot from its lead-in, The Bachelorette, which averaged 5.8 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating this summer. 

Cookie Monster - Tall  - Grand Hotel Season 1 Episode 8

ABC has yet to renew or cancel Grand Hotel, but ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke recently said that she wished the numbers were higher. 

That may not bode well for a Grand Hotel Season 2 renewal, but if the show manages to hold up well with a softer lead-in, that will be a different story. 

Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom is already renewed for Season 5, but the series has lost some ground, at least in live + SD.

Animal Kingdom Season 4 is averaging 1.2 million total viewers and a 0.3 rating. However, the series is scoring increases of around 130% in the demo and 100% in total viewers. In a word? Solid. 

Someone is Stealing - Tall - Queen of the South Season 4 Episode 10

Queen of the South

This drama series is also on the downside. It is currently averaging 0.9 million viewers and a 0.3 rating, but when a week of DVR viewing is factored, the ratings are doubling. 

Big Brother

Reality staple Big Brother is showing its age, but it remains a top performer.

Currently hovering around the 4 million/1.1 18-49 demo mark means the series is down around 25% year-to-year.

While those drops may sound severe, the show remains a top summer series and garners a lot of viewing post-airdate. 

Christy Makes a Blindside  - Big Brother

In live + 7, Big Brother is increasing by over 50% in the demo while also securing gains of around 40% in total viewers.

Those are very solid numbers.
