The series premiere of Marry Me kicked off with 7.54 million viewers and 2.3 A18-49. That is an OK start for the comedy, which benefited from the lead in of The Voice. Retention from The Voice was an 61% among total viewers and 68% in the demo. Given most shows drop 15-20 percent in week two, I think this is just an OK start for Marry Me.
Meanwhile, week two of The Flash took a small 11% week two drop, notching 4.27 million viewers and 1.7 A18-49. Don’t be surprised for a full season order announcement within the coming week. These numbers are the real deal for The CW.
Over at ABC, the Tuesday comedy block appears to be ending soon. Week three of Selfie dropped another 16% to 3.44 million viewers and 1.0 A18-49. It’s lead out, Manhattan Love Story stabilized with a weak 2.87 million viewers and 0.9 A18-49. ABC has to fix this hour, and quick.
Also on ABC was a new episode of Forever, which brought in 4.81 million viewers and 1.1 A18-49. That number represents another 15% drop for the 10 o’clock drama. Looks like ABC needs an all new Tuesday night lineup…again.
