The first “Undateable Live” of 2016 — and first installment since December 11, 2015 — posted episode-to-episode gains in adults 18-49 and total viewership.
Its viewership figure represents a season high.
Per Nielsen fast national data, Friday’s episode drew a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating and 3.155 million total viewers. The numbers top the 0.7 rating and 2.741 million viewership mark achieved by the 12/11/15 “Undateable.”
The viewership number also bests that of the October 16, 2015 installment, which had previously ranked as the most-watched “Undateable” of the season. It drew 3.133 million total viewers.
“Undateable” has not been a strong ratings performer since moving to Fridays, but it has been a fairly consistent one. It remains unclear whether the combination of that consistency and positive response to the show’s quality will result in an extended future at NBC.
— “Undateable” led into a re-run of “Superstore,” which drew a 0.6 and 2.305 million total viewers. NBC concluded its night with two hours of “Dateline” (1.1, 5.357 million at 9PM; 1.2, 5.833 million at 10PM).
