Promising Debut for “Cristela”

ABC’s latest comedy offering, multi-camera Cristela, got off to a promising start Friday night.

ustv-cristela-stillThe half hour debut of Cristela launched to 6.57 million viewers and 1.3 A18-49.  While that may not sound like much, the 1.3 demo was tied (with Hawaii Five-0) for the highest scripted offering of the night.  In addition, Cristela was able to grow from its lead in, Last Man Standing, by a tenth in the demo, while holding onto 100% of its total audience.  ABC notes Cristela is the first comedy to grow from Last Man Standing since November 2012, when Malibu Country made its debut.  So far, so good for Cristela.

Over at FOX, Utopia continued its low-rated run with 1.87 million viewers and 0.7 A18-49.  Sadly, despite only doing an 0.7, that was up a tenth from last weeks Friday episode (yikes!).
