TV Ratings: 'Crossbones' Is OK in Friday Launch
NBC's new pirate drama, starring John Malkovich, doesn't really goose the time slot -- but performs in line with "Hannibal."
Fridays at 10 p.m. isn't the easiest hour to launch a show, and NBC's latest genre offering for the time slot performed more or less in line with how originals have been.
Crossbones fetched a 1.1 rating with adults 18-49 and 4.9 million viewers -- the same in the demo as Hannibal's February premiere. It was outperformed by an even 20/20 on ABC (1.4 adults) in the hour -- the night's top program.
NBC also had a new episode of Dateline (1.3 adults), which was up a tenth of a point from last week.
