‘Gotham’ Ratings Off In Return From Hiatus, ‘APB’ Ticks Up In Finale


Fox’s Gotham returned last night for its first episode since January 30. Some fans must have not gotten the message, as the DC drama drew a preliminary 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 (Live+Same Day), down 0.2  from its last original. If the numbers hold, it would be a new L+SD low for the series, which is on the bubble for renewal. Gotham‘s strength is in delayed/on-demand viewing, so it is possible to make up the ratings drop down the line. And Gotham‘s fast national demo rating was still up a tenth from the finale of 24: Legacy in the 8 PM slot last Monday. At 9 PM, new Fox midseason entry APB (0.7) ticked up a tenth in its season and likely series finale. UPDATE: Gotham rose a tenth in the finals to a 1.0 demo rating, trying a L+SD low.

Reality veterans The Voice (1.9 in 18-49, 9.3 million viewers) on NBC and Dancing With The Stars (1.6, 10.3 million) on ABC once again topped the night, both series off a tenth in 18-49 from last week’s early numbers. At 10 PM, NBC’s Taken (0.8) slipped a tenth, while ABC’s Quantico (0.6) was on par with its fast national last week. (Last week, DWTS adjusted up in the finals, while Quantico adjusted down). UPDATE: Quantico was adjusted down again to a paltry L+SD 18-49 rating of 0.5.

The CW’s Monday lineup returned to originals after a month of repeats on a lower note, underlining the strength of uninterrupted runs. Supergirl (0.5) and Jane The Virgin (0.2) both were off by a tenth from their most recent episodes for new season lows. CBS aired repeats.

NBC won the night in 18-49 (1.5), which ABC had the edge in total viewers (7.81 million vs. 7.68 million for NBC).
