TV Ratings: '24' Loses Little Audience Since 2010
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.
