It was no staid Friday last night on television with two premieres and originals across all the networks. Fox’s night was dominated by the two-hour return of Touch (1.0/3). Moved from Thursdays to Friday, the twice-pushed season two premiere of the Kiefer Sutherland thriller drama was down 70% from its formal season one premiere on March 22, 2012. Pulling in 3.77 million viewers last night, Touch was also down 23% from the 1.3/4 of the series’ season one finale on May 31, 2012. Last night’s sophomore debut was actually not a series low for Touch as it bested by 43% the 0.7 of the show’s last original, which Fox aired September 14, 2012. All those Touch numbers need a bit of context however. Unlike its season one premiere, Touch does not have the benefit this year of American Idol as a lead-in to its 9 Pm airing. Touch will settle into its regular one-hour 9 Pm slot, following Kitchen Nightmare, next week. »
