Sci Fi TV Status Report: The Orville Has Decent Launch, Class Is Cancelled

By | September 13, 2017

On Sunday, FOX’s new sci fi series The Orville debuted with a 2.3 rating based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic and 7.3 million total viewers (those are only the preliminary numbers due to the ratings delays). These days, anything at or above a 2.0 score on the broadcast networks counts as a hit, but The Orville did get a strong push from the NFL lead-in to its debut. The show will air on Sunday again next where it will continue to benefit from football bleed-over, but then it moves to Thursdays at 9 PM EST where it will go against Grey’s Anatomy on ABC and Thursday Night Football on CBS. I expect the show’s ratings to drop by half or more once it shifts to its new timeslot.
