Last nights new episode of Madam Secretary, which started at 9:02 EST, pulled in 13.21 million viewers and 1.8 A18-49, up three tenths from last weeks episode. Retention from the NFL-inflated 60 Minutes (full hour to hour) was 74% among total viewers and 53% in the demo. The bigger lead in certainly helped this week, but to see Madam Secretary score its second best performance yet is encouraging. Again, since the show started late, numbers are expected to change in finals (update: numbers held in finals).
Have we seen the last of Mulaney? Back from its World Series hiatus, the new episode notched 1.63 million viewers and 0.7 A18-49, down three tenth from its most recent episode. Not only were the numbers minuscule, but so was the retention from a REPEAT of Family Guy – 65% in total viewers and 58% in the demo. ABC announced the cancellation of Manhattan Love Story when it hit an 0.7 demo, and NBC will pull the plug on A to Z after 13 episodes – with the announcement coming after it hit an 0.7 last week. Will Mulaney follow suit?
