The CW’s new drama “In the Dark” slipped 13% in viewers with its second episode on Thursday, after an already poor debut last week.

The hour was comparable with the Perry Mattfeld-led show’s week-ago series premiere in the key adults 18-49 demographic, settling for a 0.2 rating, but fell from an already low 894,000 total viewers down to 776,000 overall sets of eyeballs.

Over on CBS, the “Fam” Season 1 finale held steady with the rest of the freshman comedy’s first batch of episodes, ticking up a bit from the previous week both in total viewers (up to 4.9 million from 4.8 million) and the 18-49 range (rising to a 0.8 from a 0.7).

ABC was first in ratings with a 1.0 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 5.1 million, according to preliminary numbers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 0.8/4 and in viewers with 5.4 million. Smushed in between a night of encores, the “Fam” Season 1 finale at 9:30 got the above-mentioned 0.8 rating and 4.9 million viewers, plus a 4 share.
