Ratings: TBS’ “Meet the Smiths” Gets Off to a Soft Start

The official premiere of TBS’ “Meet the Smiths” was certainly not a ratings winner.

Friday’s episode delivered a soft 0.22 adults 18-49 rating with 555,000 viewers.

The TBS’ newcomer’s performance in other key demographics was similarly modest. Airing from 9-9:30PM, “Smiths” drew a 0.20 in adults 18-34 and a 0.23 in adults 25-54.

“Meet the Smiths” centers on the family of former NBA player and current broadcast analyst Kenny Smith. Smith, wife Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith and their five children star on the show.

TBS preceded Friday’s official series premiere with a sneak preview broadcast on February 13.
