For, you know, a low-rated show
On Monday, Fox’s “The Big Leap” jumped one-tenth of a Nielsen ratings point and 400,000 total viewers from last week. Those are not insignificant increases for a low-rated series. The show-within-a-show series also added viewers from its season-to-date averages — could be that people stuck with Fox even on a non-World Series night.
Still, with “The Voice” and “Dancing With the Stars” in play, Fox wasn’t near the top of the Nielsen charts. Not even with “9-1-1” making up the other half of Fox’s primetime period. (Fox and The CW do not nationally program the 10 o’clock hour, CBS, NBC and ABC do.)
