ABC’s special airing of the pilot episode of “Reasonable Doubt,” the Hulu legal drama and Onyx Collective’s first series — which hails from director and executive producer Kerry Washington — averaged 1.8 million viewers on Thursday night, according to official Nielsen live plus same-day figures.

The debut episode, which first streamed on Hulu at the end of September, also drew a score of 0.2 in the 18-49 demo. While the special slightly outperformed the ratings drawn by “Alaska Daily,” which traditionally holds the Thursday 10 p.m. primetime slot, it nabbed almost a million viewers less in the time slot than last week and the week prior.
