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%).
