Numbers Overload: Almost Human Lands in the Broadcast Network Top 10 with its Debut

By | November 23, 2013

FOX’s Almost Human debuted this past Sunday to strong ratings and that found the show taking the Number 8 slot among broadcast network shows based on the ratings in the 18-49 demographic.  It’s a pretty impressive bow, but unfortunately the show dropped considerably in the ratings the next night when it took up its regular Monday 8 PM EST timeslot.  Based on the numbers from that episode (a 2.3 rating), the series should still be in the Top 25 when the next ranking comes out, but somewhere closer to the bottom.  As for the other genre shows in the broadcast network Top 25, Sleepy Hollow leap-frogged Agents of SHIELD and looks to stay ahead of that show in the coming weeks.  In the cable charts, The Walking Dead took the top spot based on total viewership, even beating out football this time around.  Person of Interest moved up the broadcast network charts based on total viewership to the Number 7 slot.  And on the DVR gains chart, Vampire Diaries snuck into the Number 22 slot as Agents of SHIELD and Sleepy Hollow slipped out while in repeats for the week tracked (October 28th to November 3rd).
