TV Ratings: ‘MacGyver’ Opens Big for CBS in Friday Premiere, ‘Exorcist’ Ok for Fox

24 September 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“MacGyver” lived up to the spirit of the show with a surprisingly big opening night on Friday. Fox’s “The Exorcist” had a slow start that was still credible by the low bar of Friday viewership.

“MacGyver” grabbed a 1.7 rating/8 share in adults 18-49 and 10.9 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen’s live-plus-same-day ratings. That was impressive for the 8 p.m. lead-off slot on a Friday, particularly in the demo.

At 9 p.m., “Exorcist” opened to 1.0/4 in 18-49 and 2.9 million viewers. That was on par with its lead-in from the season premiere of cooking competition series “Hell’s Kitchen” (1.1/5 in 18-49, 3.3 million). “Exorcist” is likely to grow with time-shifted viewing in the L3 and L7 ratings.

“MacGyver,” a reboot of the 1980s action-adventure drama, marked CBS’ strongest series premiere in the time slot since “Ghost Whisperer” in 2005 and its best 18-49 number in the time slot since an 2012 episode of “Undercover Boss.” In »

24 September 2016 8:34 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Using little more than tin foil, plaster dust and three paper clips, CBS’ MacGyver opened big on Friday, drawing 10.9 million total viewers and a 1.7 demo rating, easily outperforming The Amazing Race‘s year-ago premiere in the time slot (5.8 mil/1.2) and dominating the night in both measures.

All told, MacGyver gave CBS its biggest audience in the Friday lead-off spot in 11 years (Ghost Whisperer) and its best demo number in nearly four (Undercover Boss).  TVLine readers gave the pilot an average grade of “C+.”

Hawaii Five-0 in turn returned to its best numbers since Jan. »
