Immediately after POTUS’ hourlong Savannah Guthrie-moderated event, Episode 102 of the social-distancing sitcom at 9 p.m. averaged 0.5 rating in the key adults 18-49 demographic and 2.4 million viewers, up from last week’s series premiere, which had a 0.3 and 1.6 million viewers. But Episode 103 at 9:30 fell to a 0.2/1 and 1.2 million viewers.
