TV Ratings: NCIS: New Orleans Hits Series Lows

at .

The move to Sundays came at the expense of some of NCIS: New Orlean's ratings. 

The veteran NCIS spinoff had just 5.2 million viewers and a 0.5 rating in the demo -- down 40% vs. its last fresh original in the demo. 

These mark series lows for the drama.

God Friended Me was also affected by a long hiatus, coming in at just 5.4 million viewers and a 0.4 rating -- down almost 50%. 

NCIS: Los Angeles also dropped but not as severly, averaging 6 million viewers and a 0.6 rating. 

Awards season clearly took a bite out of the ratings.

The Jane Levy-fronted musical had 2 million viewers and a 0.4 rating. 

Good Girls Season 3 Episode 1 followed with 2 million viewers and a 0.4 rating -- matching season lows and coming in below last season's average. 

ABC's American Idol returned for its third revived season at 8 million viewers and a 1.5 rating -- down slightly vs. last year. 

Given the lack of buzz, this is a great result for a format many had ruled out. Whether it will sink in the coming weeks, we don't know.
