Some encouraging news for Fox’s Terra Nova ahead of its key second airing tonight: Despite its modest opening with a 3.1 Live+Same Day rating among adults 18-49 that came in below expectations, the big-budget dinosaur drama has risen to No. 1 among all new drama series premieres this season with a healthy 1.0 rating bump in Live+3, bringing its 18-49 rating to a 4.1. That represents the largest L+3 gain for a new drama series. Fox’s comedy New Girl is the leader in L+3 gains for freshman series overall with an increase of 1.2 ratings points.
