Fox’s futuristic cop thriller opens to 9.1 million viewers against “Once,” which hit a series low

Fox’s “Almost Human” debuted well Sunday — considering most of the country’s attention was focused on Peyton Manning handing the Kansas City Chiefs their first loss of the season.

The series premiere of the J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman sci-fi thriller, which was pushed back two weeks so it could benefit from following Sunday football, opened to a solid 3.1 rating/8 share in the key 18-49 demographic and 9.1 million viewers overall.

NBC was first in ratings with a 7.5 rating/19 share in the demo and first in total viewers with an average of 20.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. Due to the nature of live sports, early numbers for Fox and NBC are subject to change.
