Update: “24: Live Another Day” Ratings Hold Steady

Update: Virtually mirroring last week’s performance, Monday’s edition of “24: Live Another Day” drew a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating off half-hours of 1.5 and 1.4.

Last week’s episode drew the same half hours but posted a 1.5 adults 18-49 in the Fast National data before being adjusted to a 1.4 in the finals.

Viewership for the episode clocked in at 5.71 million.

The ending to last week’s “24: Live Another Day,” in which Margot seemingly killed President James Heller with a drone missile, did not elicit special interest in this week’s follow-up episode.

Monday’s “24” matched last week’s 4.5 overnight household rating.

While there is no guarantee the episode will hold at last week’s series low levels in adults 18-49 and total viewership, the steadiness in the overnights suggests it did not enjoy a significant gain in those columns. And given the curiosity that should have resulted from last week’s cliffhanger, the lack of a ratings gain paints a disappointing portrait of reality.

Thus far, FOX’s “24: Live Another Day” has performed respectably by summer broadcast standards but disappointingly in comparison to the marks routinely delivered by the action franchise in its heyday.
