After two weeks off the air, Red Band Society returned with 2.87 million viewers and 0.9 A18-49, down a tenth from its most recent episode. Retention from Hell’s Kitchen was 81% among total viewers and 69% in the demo. Only a handful of episodes left, and Red Band Society is off of FOX’s list of problems.
A new episode of Stalker brought in 7.28 million viewers and 1.5 A18-49, even with last weeks prelims, but down a tenth from finals. What makes this performance look a bit better than last week was the slightly increased retention from Criminal Minds (78% this week vs. 70% last week). Still, CBS can do much better in the timeslot.
Older-skewing The Mysteries of Laura continued to bring in the viewers, scoring 7.76 million viewers and 1.2 A18-49, even with last week. NBC already gave the show a full season order, so it will be interesting to see what happens with a second season. We will, of course, have to wait until May for that answer.
