TV Ratings: Almost Family Premieres Low

at .

Almost Family launched on FOX Wednesday night to little fanfare. 

The brand new series, which has not gone down that well with critics, garnered 3 million total viewers and a 0.8 rating. 

More worrying is that it dropped considerably from The Masked Singer, which scored 6.8 million total viewers and a 1.9 rating.

Given that most new shows drop in the vicinity of 10 to 20% in their second week, Almost Family may not last long before being replaced. 

FOX will not want to waste such a strong lead-in on a show that's not holding much of its lead-in.
