Ratings: ‘Almost Human’ Slips Without Football Lead-In, ‘Voice’ Hits Fall Monday Low

Fox’s new futuristic buddy cop shop falls from a 3.1 to a 2.2 in key demo

On its second night of a back-to-back premiere, “Almost Human” predictably dropped without Sunday’s football lead-in and hype.

The downtick was probably more than Fox had hoped for though, dropping 29 percent, from a 3.1 to a 2.2. in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary numbers. The good news for the network is that Monday’s show held its audience during the hour.

A new “Voice” at 9 received a 3.4/9 — the highest rating of the night but a fall Monday series low — and 10.5 million viewers.
