Ratings: ‘Utopia’ Crumbles in Time Period Premiere, NBC Tops Tuesday

CBS’ “Big Brother” scores night’s top demo marks in new timeslot

Fox’s “Utopia” experiment is meant to last one calendar year, but after two episodes and three days it is already struggling mightily. The reality series got a 0.9 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic on Tuesday night, following its so-so 1.9 debut on Sunday.

Meanwhile, NBC won primetime last night, and CBS saw success in the new “Big Brother” timeslot.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/5 share in the key demo and first in viewers with an average of 8 million, according to preliminary numbers. At 8 p.m., “Food Fighters” had a 1.0/4 and 4.5 million viewers. “America’s Got Talent” at 9 received a 1.9/6 and a night-high 9.7 million viewers.
