“The Michael J. Fox Show” Sinks to Scary Ratings Low

Fun fact: Ratings for Thursday’s edition of “The Michael J. Fox Show” fell to a new series low.

Airing out of fellow flop “Sean Saves the World” (0.8 adults 18-49 rating, 2.66 million viewers), “Fox” registered a paltry 0.6 rating with 2.01 million viewers.

Once hyped as NBC’s ticket to renewed glory on Thursday nights, the TV veteran’s comeback show has become a ratings disaster for the network.

While they performed better than “Sean” and “Michael,” 8PM veterans “Community” (1.1 rating, 3.16 million viewers) and “Parks & Recreation” (1.2 rating, 3.16 million) proved that NBC’s Thursday lineup has transformed from “Must-See” into barely seen.

Drama “Parenthood” closed NBC’s night with a 1.2 and 3.97 million viewers at 10PM.
