TV Ratings: '24' Loses Little Audience Since 2010
UPDATED: The resurrected Fox drama returns steady with its last season, which aired four years ago when live TV viewing was significantly higher.
Jack came back, and 8.1 million viewers joined him.
Fox revived its flagship drama of yore on Monday night, and the two-hour 24 opener was largely in line with its last season that aired in 2010. All told, Live Another Day averaged a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49 -- steady throughout the broadcast.
The last year 24 was on the air, it averaged a 2.8 rating in the key demo and 9.1 million viewers, so it did lose some of the crowd in its return. Still, the losses are minor considering how much same-day ratings have fallen across the board since 2010.
24 came in second place to time slot rival and perennial Monday victor The Voice (3.0 adults) . The NBC show led the drama over the same two-hour period by 15 percent in the key demo. The Blacklist tied 24 as the No. 2 show of the night, sharing its 2.6 rating among adults 18-49. NBC took a 2.9 demo rating and 10.7 million viewers for the night.
Dancing With the Stars looks to have lost the most to the 24 competition. The ABC show lost eight-tenths of a point, averaging a 1.8 rating in the demo. Castle (1.6 adults) lost four-tenths, giving ABC a 1.8 demo rating and and 11.5 million viewers for the night.
Over on CBS, the trio of original comedies all fell from last week. Both 2 Broke Girls (1.9 adults) and Mike & Molly (1.8 adults) fell four-tenths of a point, the former posting a series low, and Friends With Better Lives (1.6 adults) dropped three-tenths. CBS took a 1.3 rating with adults 18-49 and 5.1 million viewers.
Star-Crossed (0.3 adults) and The Tomorrow People (0.4 adults) were both even on The CW.
