Update: “Star-Crossed” Ratings Stay Weak, Viewership Hits Low

Update: Not unfairly portrayed by the weakened overnight numbers, The CW’s “Star-Crossed” matched last week’s series low adults 18-49 rating and slipped to a new low in total viewers.

Once again at a dismal 0.3 adults 18-49 number, the freshman CW drama garnered only 0.76 million viewers, according to Fast National data from Nielsen Media Research.

The show’s previous low mark came on March 24, when the show delivered a 0.3 rating with 0.88 million viewers.

“The Tomorrow People,” which followed “Star-Crossed,” posted a 0.4 rating with 1.06 million viewers.

As the 2013-14 broadcast season comes to a close, bubble series want to put their best feet forward in the hope of securing renewals.

If the overnights are any indication, The CW’s “Star-Crossed” did not make the desired impact this week. Monday’s episode posted a series low 0.7 overnight household rating.

The number was down two-tenths from the 0.9 posted by last week’s episode.

While there is no guarantee the episode suffered a drop of the same magnitude–or of any magnitude–in adults 18-49 and total viewers, there is similarly no reason to believe it enjoyed a game-changing uptick.

After sitting out against the NCAA Basketball Championship last week, “The Tomorrow People” returned with an original this Monday. The 9PM drama slipped to a 0.8 overnight household rating.
