Ratings: CBS’ ‘Living Biblically’ Not Off to a Hell of a Good Start

NBC’s “Good Girls” has pretty good debut behind “The Voice” season premiere

CBS needed divine intervention to see good ratings from its new sitcom “Living Biblically.” They didn’t get it.

The Jay R. Ferguson sitcom didn’t find a ton of faithful viewers with Monday’s debut, especially in the key 18-49 demographic. NBC’s “Good Girls” fared far better, though it had a nice lead-in with “The Voice” season premiere.

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.3 rating/9 share in the advertiser-coveted demo and in total viewers with an average of 10.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. The two-hour “Voice” premiere at 8 p.m. earned a 2.8/11 and 12.2 million viewers. The “Good Girls” debut at 10 received a 1.5/6 and 6 million viewers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.6/6 and in viewers with 6.9 million. “The Bachelor” at 8 posted a 1.8/7 and 6.5 million viewers. At 10, “The Good Doctor” got a 1.3/5 and 7.8 million viewers.

At 8:30, “Man With a Plan” received a 1.0/4 and 5.9 million viewers. “Superior Donuts” at 9 managed a 0.9/3 and 5.1 million viewers. “Living Biblically” at 9:30 settled for a 0.8/3 and 5 million viewers. “Scorpion” at 10 finished primetime with a 0.8/3 and 5 million viewers.

Univision and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.5/2. Univision was fifth in total viewers with 1.4 million, Telemundo was sixth with 1.297 million viewers.
