Ratings Update: “Scream Queens” Holds Steady in Demo, Sets New Viewership Low

Scream Queens [FOX]

Final Ratings Update: Tuesday’s “Scream Queens” was the least-watched episode yet. It tied a series low in the key adults 18-49 demographic.

Per Nielsen final data, the episode drew a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and 2.370 million viewers. Last week’s episode drew the same series low 0.9 rating but reached 2.512 million total viewers.

This week’s 2.370 million total trails the previous low of 2.393 million, which was set by the October 13 installment.

Like “Scream Queens,” FOX’s 8PM comedy “Grandfathered” held at its demo low (1.0) but set a new one in total viewership (2.978 million). 8:30PM series “The Grinder” increased to a 0.9 in the demo but also slipped to a low in total viewership (2.367 million).

While Tuesday’s “Scream Queens” avoided a decline in the key adults 18-49 demographic, it endured a week-over-week loss in total viewership.

Barring an upward adjustment in the finals, it will rank as the least-watched episode on record.

Per Nielsen fast national data, Tuesday’s episode drew a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and 2.362 million total viewers. The demo rating matches last week’s series low number, while the viewership total is down from that episode’s 2.512 million viewer mark.

As it stands, this week’s viewership total represents a series low. The previous low of 2.393 million came for the October 13 episode.

FOX’s Tuesday lineup also included “Grandfathered” (1.0, 2.985 million vs. 1.0, 3.046 million last week) and “The Grinder” (0.9, 2.376 million vs. 0.8, 2.562 million last week).

While “The Grinder” was up in adults 18-49, its viewership total — as well as that of “Grandfathered” — represents a new series low.
