In its fourth week on the air, Madam Secretary has stabilized, pulling in 11.45 million viewers and 1.4 A18-49. Despite losing the NFL overrun this week (compared to last), Madam Secretary was down only a tenth in the demo. The older-skewing drama was also even from week two, the last time it aired without the NFL overrun. While the show may skew incredibly old, I expect CBS to give Madam Secretary a full season order any day now.
Over at FOX, week two of Mulaney was a bit more positive than last weeks horrific debut with 2.19 million viewers and 1.1 A18-49, up a tenth from last week. What we have to keep in mind here, however, is that FOX benefited from the NFL overrun this week. In addition, Mulaney‘s lead in last night was a repeat of Family Guy (why a repeat already??). Retention from the Family Guy repeat was only 65% in the demo – yikes! How many weeks until Mulaney is finally pulled from the schedule?
