Ratings: ABC’s “Alec Baldwin Show” Flops; Premiere Was Sunday’s Lowest-Rated Show

ABC’s “The Alec Baldwin Show” drew abysmal ratings.

The series premiere of ABC’s “The Alec Baldwin Show” failed to attract interest from live+same-day viewers.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s episode drew a paltry 0.4 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 2.17 million overall viewers.

When it comes to adults 18-49, “Alec Baldwin” was actually Sunday’s lowest-rated network program. No show on CBS, FOX, NBC or The CW drew below a 0.5.

“Alec Baldwin” also squandered a solid portion of its “Shark Tank” lead-in. That show drew a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and 3.69 million viewers in the 9PM hour.

Earlier in the night, ABC offered “America’s Funniest Home Videos” (0.9, 5.69 million) and “Dancing With The Stars: Juniors” (0.7, 4.57 million).
