CBS’ Stalker on Wednesday night found 9.1 million people following it, paired with a 2.0 demo rating — the exact same numbers that CSI returned to a year ago in the time slot.
Versus CSI’s May finale, Stalker (which TVLine readers gave an average grade of “B”) was down 10 percent in audience but up a tenth in the demo.
Opening the Eye’s night, Survivor (9.5 mil/2.4) dipped 3 and 11 percent from its premiere. Criminal Minds opened Season 10 with 11.5 mil and a 2.7, up a bit in viewers but off a tenth from its previous premiere. »
I hope you weren’t planning on sleeping well tonight, TVLine readers. After watching Stalker, I don’t see how you can.
The CBS procedural drama, which debuted Wednesday at 10/9c, was as paranoia-inducing as its title would suggest — but will you pursue the series in the weeks to come?
The drama focuses on the Lapd’s Threat Assessment Unit, led by Lieutenant Beth Davis (Nikita‘s Maggie Q). The unit handles all stalking cases that make waves in the city, and in this debut hour alone, the team has got its hands full.
Fortunately — or unfortunately, »

Last night, CBS released the new promo/spoiler clip (below) for their upcoming "Person Of Interest" episode 3 of season 4, and it appears to be quite interesting and entertaining as Shaw, Reese and Fusco get to work on protecting a professional Wingman in action, and more. The episode is titled, "Wingman." In the new,3rd episode: Finch is going to end up, recruiting Fusco to stay very close to the latest Poi, a professional “wingman,” but learning how to approach women, will soon become the least of his troubles. Elsewhere, Reese is going to be forced to come up with another way to play by the rules at his new day job as the Machine sends Finch and Root on a mysterious task. The episode was written by Amanda Segel, and it was directed by Fred Toye. Episode 3 is scheduled to air on Tuesday night, October 7th at 9pm central time on CBS. »
TV ratings for Tuesday, September 30th are in. Here’s a brief look at the highlights: ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is not doing great. The second episode of the show’s second season (read Evan's recap here) garnered a 1.7 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 4.54 million viewers, notching a series low for the Marvel show. On the bright side, there’s always the possibility that it could receive a jolt in viewership after its midseason break following the debut of Agent Carter, but there’s no guarantee that show will be a hit either. Elsewhere on ABC, the series premiere of the awfully-titled Selfie scored a 1.4 rating in the demo and 4.89 million viewers. Despite the cringe-worthy premise, our own Allison Keene thought the pilot episode was saved by its solid cast. Those debut numbers on down considerably from the 3.0 rating that The Goldbergs nabbed in its post-s. »

Update: In updated Nielsen national estimates released late Wednesday, the series premieres of ABC comedies “Selfie” (1.6/5 in 18-49, 5.31 million viewers overall) and “Manhattan Love Story” (1.5/5 in 18-49, 4.70 million viewers overall) looked a little healthier by getting a two-tenths upward adjustment. The nets dramas “Marvel’s Agents of Shield” (1.8/5 in 18-49, 5.05 million viewers overall) and “Forever” (1.4/5 in 18-49, 5.96 million viewers overall) both rose by 0.1, meaning the latter finished down 22% from its week-earlier timeslot premiere (1.8).

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, September 30, 2014. "NCIS" added a few viewers from last week, while "NCIS: New Orleans" retained well in its second airing, leading CBS to an easy Tuesday win overall. However, both CBS procedurals were down in young viewers, as "The Voice" helped helped NBC to an easy victory in the key demo. The night's big new premieres were ABC's "Selfie" and "Manhattan Love Story," which got off to less-than-impressive starts, but still easily beat Fox's "New Girl"/"Mindy Project" comedy block. Of more concern to ABC is the way that soft opening block may have contributed to drops for "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Forever." And although Fox's entire night was still untenably low, "Utopia," "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project" were all up a hair either in viewers, the key demo or both. On to the numbers...

ABC’s Selfie didn’t get a huge amount of Instagratification with its Tuesday premiere, drawing 5.3 million total viewers and a 1.6 demo rating (per finals).
Manhattan Love Story had even fewer followers, leading out of that with 4.7 mil and a 1.5.
TVLine readers gave Selfie an average grade of “B”, while Love Story settled for a “C+.”
Continuing ABC’s night, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (5.1 mil/1.8) fell 15 percent (tying its series low), while Forever (5.7 mil/1.4) dropped 17 and 22 percent.
CBS | NCIS (18.6 mil/2.6) added a few eyeballs versus its premiere but slipped 10 percent in the demo. NCIS: New Orleans (16.4 mil/2.3) dipped 5 and 8 percent from its debut. »
Omg, Seflie premiere ratings are pretty weak, Lol! ABC debuted its social media-skewing comedy last night, but most TV viewers swiped left :(
Seflie, which stars Karen Gillan and John Cho, had 4.9 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 at 8 p.m. last night. That’s down 55 percent from the debut of The Goldbergs in this slot last year. Selfie led into another new comedy, Manhattan Love Story (4.3 million, 1.3), starring Analeigh Tipton and Jake McDorman, which also performed very modest. The comedy block came in third place in the hour (Fox’s Utopia came in fourth). ABC’s one »

All summer long, Person of Interest fans have dealt with one lingering question after last season’s so-good-it’s-maddening finale: Where are Finch, Reese and the rest of Team Machine supposed to go now?
With the library dismantled and the team now underground, Tuesday’s episode finally held the answer to the gestating question, revealing the whereabouts (well, vaguely) of the brand-new headquarters that will now serve as the meeting place for our newly displaced heroes. Viewers got their first peek at the new HQ—an abandoned subway station deep underneath New York City, far from the prying eyes of »

In an overall pretty good first week of the television season for the broadcast biz, NBC ruled in all key demos and CBS prevailed in total viewers — while third-place ABC was arguably the most impressive of all the networks.
It was mostly slow going for Fox, though it book-ended its week nicely with newcomer “Gotham” and its “Simpsons”-“Family Guy” crossover episode.
The networks combined were down 2% in adults 18-49 rating vs. their premiere week of 2013 (9.6 vs. 9.8), according to Nielsen “live plus same-day” numbers, but they could erase that deficit in “live plus-3″ results. CBS, which added “Thursday Night Football” to its early-fall schedule, was the only network up vs. last year in 18-49.
In total viewers, a category skewed by tune-in among adults 50 and older, the networks held up better. Their combined audience of 34.39 million was up 1% from last year’s 34.11 million, with ABC, CBS and NBC all up a bit. »

Premiere week ratings are in: NBC and CBS have reasons to celebrate while Fox’s numbers are far from utopian.
NBC led the first week of the 2014-15 broadcast season by a wide margin in the key adults 18-49 demo, while CBS was tops among total viewers. Though NBC’s demo victory is more enviable from an advertiser perspective, CBS has the important bragging point of being the only network to show a gain among 18-49 compared to last fall—CBS was up 9 percent in the demo, while NBC, ABC and Fox were down between 3 and 9 percent each (full charts »

[This is a review of Sleepy Hollow season 2, episode 2. There will be Spoilers.]
Sleepy Hollow continues to push the limits of its fantastical sophistication in this week’s episode, entitled ‘The Kindred’. With Katrina trapped in the clutches of the Headless Horsemen, Abbie and Ichabod find a new ally in the most unlikely of places.
Giving a face and a voice to the Horseman of Death adds a sense of realism to the show where none should exist. Neil Jackson (Person of Interest) brings a unique humanism to a creature easily dismissed as a puppet for Moloch. Do you think he’s really fooled by Katrina’s ploy to gain more information about the coming apocalypse?
Captain Irving made his ...

As CBS’ Person of Interest (Tuesdays at 10/9c) opened Season 4, it was Root, of all people, who needed to light a fire under Team Machine leader Harold Finch, who in the wake of Samaritan going online (and given the lives lost to date) had abandoned his faith.
But as Root noted, she, Harold et al still “have a god in this fight,” and with those words she nudged him toward caring about the numbers again.
