Ratings Update: NBC’s “Undateable,” “One Big Happy” Fall This Week

Update 2: This week’s editions of NBC’s “Undateable” and “One Big Happy” slipped in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Per final broadcast data, “Undateable” drew a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating with 5.18 million viewers.  Last week’s season premiere scored a considerably stronger 1.9 with 6.43 million.

This week’s installment of lead-out “One Big Happy” scored a 1.2 with 3.79 million viewers.  Last week’s series premiere posted a 1.6 with 5.47 million.

NBC’s other Tuesday programming included “The Voice” (2.8, 11.62 million) and “The Night Shift” (1.0, 4.04 million).

Update: Per fast national data, NBC’s “Undateable” and “One Big Happy” both suffered sizable ratings declines this week.

After opening its second season with a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating and 6.43 million viewers on March 17, “Undateable” drew a 1.5 with 5.24 million this week.

Freshman “One Big Happy,” which leads out of “Undateable,” slipped from a 1.6 with 5.47 million viewers to a 1.2 with 3.95 million.

Reduced lead-in support from 8PM entry “The Voice” (down from a 3.2 with 12.82 million to a 2.7 with 11.20 million) did not help matters, but its 16% demo decline was not quite as sharp as the respective 21% and 25% falls endured by the aforementioned comedies.

A Tuesday edition of “The Night Shift” closed NBC’s night with a weak 1.0 and 4.14 million viewers.

The overnight ratings report brings disappointing–albeit somewhat predictable–news for NBC comedies “Undateable” and “One Big Happy.”

Both comedies suffered declines this week.

Sophomore comedy “Undateable,” which posted a 4.3 overnight household rating for last week’s season premiere, drew a 3.5 this week. “One Big Happy” followed with a 2.6, which was down from the 3.8 for last Tuesday’s series premiere.

There is no guarantee the shows suffered equivalent drops in adults 18-49 and total viewership, but the likelihood that they did drop in those metrics is strong.

NBC led into its 9PM comedies with “The Voice” (7.7, -6%).
