Surprise Results in New Season Ratings

Time to talk ratings.  What people watched and what they didn’t.  The ‘fall season’ premiere week is now over in the USA and it revealed some rather surprising results.

The Blacklist was the most watched new drama of the lot.  Nothing surprising there.  The show received a lot of hype in it’s lead up with and just under 13 million viewers in America tuned in while Hostages was on the complete opposite side with only 7.4 million viewers.  I’m a bit worried for Hostages as it’s home network (CBS) is known for offering shows that bring in massive viewers.  A show with even more hype – Marvels Agents of SHIELD came in with 12.12 million.

Sleepy Hollow was a surprise win for FOX which saw 10.1 million viewers tune in against tough competition and seems like the only jewel in the networks line-up.

some comedies didn’t fare too well.  The Anna Faris led sitcom Mom nabbed 8 million viewers (it’s a terrible show and i’d expect that to drop more next week) while my favorite to come out Trophy Wife brought in just under 7 million for ABC.  On the upper scale for comedies, The Goldbergs did well with 8.94 million and the most watched premiere of the week?

The Crazy Ones starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and Robin Williams.  The show brought in a massive 15.52 million viewers and was the number one viewed show for the week.  I’m thinking FOX8 must be pretty chuffed having picked this one up from free-to-air networks.
