TV Ratings: Big Sky Premieres Low, NCIS Returns Down

at .

With the competition heating up on the broadcast networks, many shows are experiencing ratings dips. 

Big Sky Season 1 Episode 1 launched with 4 million viewers and a 0.6 rating. 

Last fall, Emergence kicked off with a stronger 4.1 million viewers and a 0.8 rating. That show lost ground and the season continued and was canceled. 

Taking It All In - Big Sky Season 1 Episode 1

Earlier in the night for ABC, The Bachelorette drew a solid 4.4 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in the demo. 

Over on CBS, NCIS returned 10 million viewers and a 0.9 rating -- down from last season's premiere, finale, and average. 

FBI (8 million/0.8 rating) and FBI: Most Wanted (5.3 million/0.6 rating) were also on the down side year-to-year. 

NBC's The Voice (7.3 million/1.1 rating) and This Is Us (6.4 million/1.2 rating) continued on a strong note. 

Reading in Bed - This Is Us

The latter is headed into a seven-week hiatus, which was brought on by COVID-19 production constraints. 

Transplant closed off the night for NBC with 3.4 million viewers and a 0.6 rating. 

FOX's canceled drama NeXt drew a paltry 1 million viewers and a 0.2 rating. 

Maybe holding the show for so long was not a good idea.

The CW's Swamp Thing (0.7 million/0.1 rating) continued its descent, while Tell Me a Story (0.4 million/0.1 rating) was steady as a rock.
