Last week’s “New Girl” enjoyed week-to-week gains in adults 18-49 and total viewership.
The first of this week’s back-to-back episodes ceded the entirety of the adults 18-49 gain and set what represented a live+same-day series low in total viewership.
The second episode endured additional declines.
According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, the 8PM episode posted a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and drew 2.06 million total live+same-day viewers. The numbers trail the 1.1 adults 18-49 rating and 2.65 million viewer mark posted by last week’s episode; the rating moreover tied a series low, while the viewership tally outright ranked as one.
“New Girl” would then set new lows with its 8:30PM episode. The broadcast drew a 0.8 rating and 1.73 million total viewers.
Valued by FOX in a way not adequately reflected by live+same-day ratings, “New Girl” has already been renewed for a sixth season.
— FOX’s lineup also included the season finale of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Grinder.” Both effectively matched last week’s performances; “B99” drew a 0.9 rating and 2.03 million viewers versus a 0.9 and 2.07 million last week, while “The Grinder” posted a 0.6 and 1.55 million against a 0.6 and 1.56 million.
