“Revolution” Ratings Slide Only Slightly, “Partners” Also Down
Though it dipped considerably in the overnight metered market numbers, NBC’s “Revolution” held impressively steady in the adults 18-49 rating.
Based on the fast nationals, the show only fell to a 3.2 adults 18-49 rating with 8.4 million viewers. Showing far more signs of stability than 2010 launch “The Event,” “Revolution” is definitely clicking with viewers.
Whether it will retain that audience as the season goes on–or whether it could do so without lead-in support from “The Voice”–remains to be seen, but by the standards of its timeslot, it is delivering. “Castle” and “Hawaii 5-0″ each achieved only a 1.9 rating, with 10.3 million and 7.72 million viewers, respectively, giving “Revolution” a dominant timeslot victory in the demo.
Over on CBS, “How I Met Your Mother” dipped to a 3.2 rating with 8.2 million viewers. Disappointing new launch “Partners” followed with a decline to a 2.1 rating with 5.7 million, while “2 Broke Girls” clocked in with a 3.4 and 9.0 million. “Mike & Molly” delivered a 2.9 with 8.5 million, while the aforementioned “Hawaii 5-0″ was very weak.
CBS’ Monday lineup is definitely taking a hit as a result of the “Two and a Half Men” relocation, although given its fairly modest lead-in retention out of “The Big Bang Theory” last week, it is a clearly-aged series that likely would not have been as helpful as it once was in the Monday tentpole slot.
