FOX’s “Touch” Ratings Get Even Worse

There is a reason Friday is known as the death slot, and it is for that reason that shows without momentum do not great make fits for the night.

After premiering its second season with a disastrous number last week, “Touch” fell even father Friday. The series dropped to a dismal 0.7 adults 18-49 rating with 2.5 million viewers.

Initially the subject of lukewarm reviews, the Kiefer Sutherland vehicle performed passably in its first few Thursday outings last season.

But that momentum faded, and while the show was still able to earn a second season renewal, it did not inspire much optimism about the likelihood of strong performance in the new Friday slot.

The nail is officially in the coffin on that dream, and it seems almost inevitable that “Touch” will not receive a third season.
