L+SD Ratings: “Assassination Of Gianni Versace” Premieres Well Below “People v. OJ,” Still Wins Wednesday Night

The bad (yet predictable) news: The premiere of FX’s “The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” drew fewer live+same-day viewers than any installment of “The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story.” The good news: Wednesday’s premiere was still the day’s top cable original in adults 18-49. According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Wednesday’s “American Crime Story” premiere drew a 0.72 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 2.22 million overall viewers.

Ratings: FOX’s “9-1-1” Jumps In Week Three

Earlier this week, FOX renewed “9-1-1” for a second season. Based on the numbers for this week’s installment (the third episode), FOX doubtfully regrets its decision.

The numbers top the 1.5 rating and 5.55 million viewer mark drawn by last week’s episode. This week’s demo rating, in fact, matches that drawn by the January 3 premiere (that episode did, however, draw a stronger 6.83 million viewer sum). “9-1-1” tied ABC’s “Modern Family” as the night’s #1 program in ...
