Meanwhile, CBS’ Living Biblically debuted softly (0.8, 5M) but on par with the numbers netted by 9JKL in same slot. Pre-Biblically and post, the net’s Kevin Can Wait (1.0, 6.05M), Man With a Plan (1.0, 5.86M)) and Superior Donuts (0.9, 5.13M) slipped, but Scorpion (0.8, 5.0M) stayed steady.
The CW’s iZombie season starter (0.3, 1.01M) lost a tenth compared to last season’s opener.
The Voice (2.7, 12.2M) topped the night in the demo and total viewers. NBC topped primetime in both metrics with a 2.3 demo rating and 10.14M total viewers.
