NBC freshman comedy is already on its last legs in Week 2

Last Updated: October 4, 2019 @ 8:53 AM

There’s just no bright side to Kal Penn’s “Sunnyside” ratings. On Thursday, the new NBC sitcom settled for just a 0.3 rating/2 share among adults 18-49 and 1.3 million total viewers.

NBC finished in fourth place last night when Fox dominated with “Thursday Night Football.”

ABC’s “TGIT” lineup edged CBS for second in the key demo, though the order was reversed in terms of overall audience members.

Due to the nature of live sports, the below fast national numbers for Fox should be considered subject to significant adjustment. Fox will still win big when final Nielsen numbers come in.

Fox was first in ratings with a 3.7 rating/17 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 12.4 million, according to preliminary numbers. That was all Rams-Seahawks.

ABC was second in ratings with a 0.9/4 and third in viewers with 4.5 million. “Grey’s Anatomy” at 8 p.m. put up a 1.3/6 and 6 million viewers. At 9, “A Million Little Things” received a 0.9/4 and 4.8 million viewers. “How to Get Away With Murder” at 10 had a 0.5/3 and 2.7 million viewers.

CBS was third in ratings with a 0.8/4 and second in viewers with 5.8 million. “Young Sheldon” at 8 posted a 1.0/5 and 8.1 million viewers. At 8:30, “The Unicorn” got a 0.8/4 and 6 million viewers. “Mom” at 9 had a 0.8/4 and 6.4 million viewers. At 9:30, “Carol’s Second Act” closed out the comedy block with a 0.7/3 and 5.7 million viewers. Drama “Evil” at 10 finished off actual primetime to a 0.6/3 and 4.2 million viewers.

NBC was fourth in ratings with a 0.6/3 and in viewers with 2.5 million. “Superstore” at 8 had a 0.8/4 and 2.8 million viewers. At 8:30, “Perfect Harmony” managed a 0.5/2 and 2.1 million viewers. “The Good Place” at 9 got a 0.6/3 and 2.1 million viewers. “Sunnyside” followed at 9:30. At 10, “Law & Order: SVU” received a 0.7/3 and 3.3 million viewers.

Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.4 million.
