No, the second episode of new E! series “The Grace Helbig Show” did not achieve significant week-over-week improvement. It did not establish itself as anything approximating a hit.
Friday’s “Grace Helbig” did, however, best the premiere episode in both adults 18-49 and total viewership.
Airing in the 10:30PM slot, Friday’s episode drew a 0.12 adults 18-49 rating with 236,000 viewers. Both numbers top those of the premiere airing, which scored a 0.09 with 227,000 viewers.
Given the nature of the program, the standards of the network and the timeslot, no one was expecting monster ratings for the new talk show. And while it is unclear whether the show is thus far performing at, above or below the bar anticipated by E!, the show does deserve credit for enjoying improvement in its second week.
