When We Rise [ABC]

Despite receiving strong lead-in support from “The Bachelor,” the first two hours of ABC’s “When We Rise” miniseries failed to attract much live+same-day interest.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, the 9-10PM portion drew a mere 0.8 adults 18-49 rating and averaged only 3.26 million total viewers.

The 10-11PM portion fell to a 0.6 in the demo and 2.64 million in viewership.

Soft numbers in any context, the numbers are particularly low in comparison to the 2.4 rating and 7.70 million viewer mark garnered by the aforementioned “Bachelor” lead-in.
