TV Ratings Report: BH90210 Opens Strong for Fox

at . Comments

BH90210 is here, and it looks like viewers are on board!

BH90210 Season 1 Episode 1 scared up 3.8 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49, easily dominating the night on Fox. 

Given that there was a lot of curiosity heading into premiere night because it's not exactly the revival fans were hoping for, this is a good start.

In fact, if BH90210 manages to level off in the 1.3 range, it would become one of Fox's top scripted shows. 

All things considered, this is a solid start in today's ratings landscape, and those numbers will likely pop when streaming and DVR is factored in.

How long will Fox hold off before ordering another season? Time will tell.

Before BH90210, Masterchef was at season highs with 3.4 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating. 

Big Brother was second for the night with a steady 3.0 million viewers and a 1.1 rating. That being said, the veteran reality series had a comfortable lead over BH90210 in adults 18-34 (0.7 vs. 0.4).

Elsewhere on CBS, Love Island wrapped its first season with 2.6 million viewers and a 0.5 rating.

This new series is not doing well in live ratings, but the delayed viewing is said to have urged CBS to order up a second season. 

Over on ABC, Press Your Luck (3.6 million/0.6 rating), Card Sharks (2.9 million/0.5 rating), and Match Game (2.9 million/0.5 rating) were all steady in the demo.

The CW premiered British import Bulletproof  and Hypnotize Me.

The former scored 800k total viewers and a 0.2 rating. These numbers are on par with some of the network's other summer scripted fare. 

For a cheap series that was bought after it finished airing in the UK, these are decent results. Expect CW to snap up the already-ordered second season. 

Hypnotize Me did 564k viewers and a 0.1 rating.

NBC's The Inbetween continued with 2.4 million viewers and a 0.4 rating.
