In its second outing on Monday night, Fox’s new Almost Human slipped 17% compared to previous Monday in the demo, clocking a 1.9 rating, and about 6 million viewers, which put it in fourth place among broadcasters on both counts. It held 100% of its audience throughout the hour. The show also retained 100% of its teen audience, week to week. One week earlier, the futuristic cop drama had logged about 6.3 million viewers and landed in a three-way tie for second place in the demo with a 2.2 rating in fast nationals, tumbling 29% in its move to Monday after a Sunday premiere behind an NFL double-header. Fox projects the new drama episode will climb to a 3.1 or 3.2 demo rating when Live+7 Day stats come out and estimates the episode will be viewed by more than 14 million via 30-day multi-platform viewing. Following Almost Human, Fox’s Sleepy Hollow slid 12% from previous Monday in the demo (2.2) but was nonetheless the No. 2 drama of the night overall. (Last week Sleepy Hollow went up a tenth in the finals to a 2.6 rating, as had NBC’s The Voice.)
ABC was Monday’s most watched broadcaster for the fourth consecutive week, and equaled its best demo number since season-premiere Monday, tying for No. 2 on the night in the demo. But its Dancing With The Stars season finale (2.2) fell 19% compared to last year’s Monday night performance finale (this season ABC took the competition series from two nights a week to one). After Dancing, Castle (2.1) climbed compared to previous Monday, though it got trounced by NBC’s Blacklist (3.2) in the demo; Castle was the night’s most watched scripted TV show for the sixth week in a row.
