Episode two of Cristela performed well in week two, averaging 5.97 million viewers and 1.2 A18-49, down only one tenth from last weeks debut. After growing from Last Man Standing last week, Cristela had to settle for solid retention this week (89% viewers / 92% demo). We’re only two weeks into Cristela, but as of now, it looks like a winner for ABC.
The nightmare continues for FOX with year-long Utopia. The latest episode notched 1.88 million viewers and 0.7 A18-49, even with last week. The World Series starts next week on FOX, so Utopia is pre-empted. This gives FOX a chance to cancel it, or will they ride out the low ratings for a year?
