TV Ratings: Bubble Sitcom 'Great Indoors' Logs New Low
The death march to the end of the broadcast season continues. And another Monday brought more wins for steady-ish episodes of The Voice and Dancing With the Stars — though live-viewing fatigue is evident in most of the evening's scores, including one CBS wild card.
NBC, of course, topped with its two-hour outing of The Voice. It averaged a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49, leading into a flat episode of Taken (0.8 adults). And while it notched the night's top showing in the key demo, ABC scored an audience win with Dancing With the Stars. On top of the competition's 1.6 rating among adults 18-49, it averaged 10.1 million viewers — roughly 1.3 million more viewers than The Voice. Lead-out Quantico, struggling with live tune-in, averaged just a 0.6 rating for the night's weakest Big Four showing.
While the bulk of the CBS lineup was in solid shape, with Kevin Can Wait (1.2 adults), Man With a Plan (0.9 adults), Superior Donuts (0.9 adults) and Scorpion (1.0 adults) all holding steady, one show did take a steep tumble. Another Monday outing of The Great Indoors dropped to a series low 0.8 rating in the key demo. It's not good news for the bubble sitcom, whose last Thursday outing was four-tenths of a point higher. Even its last Monday sampling performed significantly better.
Lucifier was the only other broadcast show to really drop, albeit only two-tenths of a point. Both Lucifer and Gotham averaged a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49 for Fox.
Over on the CW, Supergirl (0.5 adults) and Jane the Virgin (0.2 adults) were steady.
