Ratings: “Lethal Weapon” Falls To Low, “STAR” Holds Flat In Demo, Gains Viewers

Lethal Weapon [FOX]

The penultimate first season “Lethal Weapon” episode was the series’ lowest-rated installment yet.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Wednesday’s “Lethal Weapon” drew a 1.2 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 5.86 million overall viewers.

The numbers, which trail the 1.4 rating and 6.26 million viewer mark garnered by the previous broadcast on February 22, represent series lows.

Lead-out “STAR” delivered 1.1 adults 18-49 rating and 3.87 million live+same-day viewers. Last week’s episode, which aired out of a “Lethal Weapon” re-run, drew the same 1.1 (which is a series low) but a lesser 3.36 million viewership average.

Both shows have been renewed for second seasons. They air their first season finales next week.
