TV Ratings: ‘Designated Survivor’ Debuts Solid, ‘Empire’ Down

22 September 2016 8:40 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC’s “Designated Survivor,” one of three new broadcast series to debut Wednesday night, gave a solid performance in its first outing. The Kiefer Sutherland drama pulled in a 2.3 ratings among adults 18-49 and 10 million total viewers, according to Nielsen overnight ratings. That’s just shy of double what the season premiere of “Nashville” did in the demo occupying the same timeslot last year in both measures.

Leading off the night for ABC, the season premiere of “The Goldbergs” drew a 2.0 in the demo and 6.8 million viewers, down 17% in the demo and 11% in total viewers from last year’s season premiere at 8:30 p.m. In that timeslot this time around, the series premiere of “Speechless” held steady with its lead-in in the demo but grew in all viewers, with 7.3 million. The season premiere of “Modern Family” followed with a 2.6 (down 19%) and 8.2 million viewers (down 14%). The season premiere of  “Black-ish” ran between “Modern Family” and “Designated Survivor,” drawing »

Ratings: Designated Survivor Opens Strong, Doubles Nashville's Numbers

22 September 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

ABC’s Designated Survivor had the popular vote on Wednesday, debuting to 10 million total viewers and a 2.2 demo rating (per finals) — up sharply from Nashville‘s year-ago opener (4.9 mil/1.2) and doubling the Cmt-bound musical-drama’s Season 4 average (4.2 mil/1.0).

All told, Dez gave ABC its best scripted numbers in the time slot in five and four years, respectively. TVLine readers gave the “accidental president” drama an average grade of  “B+.”

Ratings: ‘Empire’ Falls (Off a Rooftop) 39 Percent From Season 2 Premiere

22 September 2016 8:22 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

These “Empire” Season 3 premiere numbers are big — the problem is, they’re not “Empire”-big. The Lee Daniels hip-hop soap opera tumbled 39 percent last night in the key 18-49 demographic versus its sophomore season start. It still handed Fox an easy Wednesday win, however, and was essentially steady with its Season 2 finale. “Empire” followed a decent debut from the new cop show “Lethal Weapon.” Last year, lead-in “Rosewood” fared better in the main demo, but worse among overall viewers. Over on ABC, “Designated Survivor” was strong, especially considering its 10 p.m. time slot. That, coupled with “Modern Family,” gave the Disney. »

Speechless Series Premiere Review: Finding Your Voice

21 September 2016 5:59 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Over the past few years, ABC has become the home of television’s best family comedies. From Modern Family to Fresh Off the Boat to black-ish, the network has never shied away from delivering fun, authentic, and unique family sitcoms, which is why it should be no surprise that ABC’s latest offering, Speechless, is one of the best new shows of the fall. Without ever feeling saccharine, Speechless crafts a wacky family of individuals, specifically Minnie Driver’s determined mom, Maya, and her son, J.J., who has cerebral palsy, and delivers more than a few heartwarming moments throughout “Pilot.” Similar to black-ish and Fresh Off the Boat, what makes Speechless feel

Speechless Premiere: Does ABC's New Comedy Deserve a Standing Ovation?

21 September 2016 5:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

There’s a new family joining ABC’s rock-solid Wednesday night comedy block — and so far, it looks like they’re going to fit in just fine.

Speechless, which debuted Wednesday night, introduces us to the Dimeo family, led by hard-charging mom Maya (Minnie Driver). Along for the ride are husband Jimmy (John Ross Bowie), brainy son Ray (Mason Cook), and track-star daughter Dylan (Kyla Kenedy). But Maya’s main focus is her special-needs son, Jj (Micah Fowler), whom she tirelessly defends with mama-bear ferocity.

‘Speechless’ Review: Minnie Driver Makes a Moving Sitcom About a Boy, and This Time You Better Watch!

21 September 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Minnie Driver yelling, “Oy! Oy!” at people she disapproves of is, quite simply, a thing of beauty. But more than that, it’s an act we need to support each and every opportunity we get. Sheer joy is experienced by all within earshot when she tosses her English colloquialism like a grenade at unsuspecting offenders, and simple pleasures like this are in such short supply how dare you, I or anyone deprive the world of even one?

It’s with this in mind that I throw my full endorsement behind “Speechless,” Driver’s new ABC comedy wedged between “The Goldbergs,” “Modern Family” and “Black-ish” as the missing piece of the network’s award-worthy (and award-winning) family night lineup. Yes, there are a few pacing issues in the 22-minute pilot, and recommending a series based on one episode of television is a risky gamble critics are asked to make far too often. »
