That was down 29% from what the premiere of Pan Am did in the time period a year ago. Leading into 666 Park, the season opener of Revenge drew a 3.2 on its new night, tying Desperate Housewives' year-ago performance in the time slot and down just a tenth from its series premiere.
Once Upon a Time also held up well, decreasing just 5% from its debut last year to a 3.8. Overall, ABC was third with a 2.7 rating/7 share.
With its numbers boosted by NFL overrun, Fox was second with a 4.6/12 for the season premieres of its animation lineup. The Simpsons declined 5% to a 3.7, Bob's Burgers was up 32% from its premiere last March to a 2.5, Family Guy decreased 20% to a 3.3 and American Dad fell 17% to a 2.5.
CBS found itself in fourth place with a 2.1/5. The Amazing Race slipped 17% from its year-ago premiere to a 2.5, The Good Wife declined 18% opposite Revenge to a 1.8, and The Mentalist posted a 2.1 on its new night, down 25% from its year-ago Thursday debut and down 9% from what the canceled CSI: Miami did in the time slot a year ago.
As usual, NBC won Sunday night with a 6.4/16 rating and 16.6 million viewers for its NFL coverage. The New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles game tied its 8.1 rating from last week while Football Night in America slipped a tenth to a 3.6.
Was not overly impressed. Won't watch jsut because of the title evil number but wanted to see what it was about. That being said, I had a very uneasy feeling watching it. So I really won't watch it.
The actors are very good but I don't understand why they would waste such talent on evil.
