Ratings: “Gotham” Endures 11% Drop in Week Three (Updated)

Update: Down 11% from last week’s number, the third episode of FOX’s “Gotham” posted a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating.  Its viewership average of 6.36 million trailed the 7.45 million drawn by last week’s episode.

FOX followed “Gotham” with “Sleepy Hollow” (1.7 rating, 4.46 million).


An immensely popular DVR option and of particular interest to viewers in the adults 18-49 demographic, new drama “Gotham” continues to look like a solid performer for FOX.

It is, however, losing some steam from a live broadcast perspective. After enduring a decline of 7% in the week two overnights, “Gotham” fell an additional 13% for its latest broadcast.

This week’s 4.6, which represents a modest to-date decline of 19% from the premiere’s 5.7, should still translate to a respectable adults 18-49 number.

As such, the latest drop in no way threatens the show’s favorable standing. In order to justify a ‘hit’ label, “Gotham” will, however, need to soon locate a point of stability.

— FOX followed “Gotham” with its deflated “Sleepy Hollow” (3.1 overnight household rating).
