‘666 Park Avenue,’ ‘Supernatural’ Have OK Premieres

‘Revolution’ continues to slip while ‘Once Upon a Time’ returns strong

ABC didn’t quite get what it was looking for with the premiere of “666 Park Avenue,” but maybe all it needed was a second week?

The supernatural thriller scored a 4.6 rating/7 share in Fast National overnight ratings from The Nielsen Co. While it improved on ABC’s timeslot over last year by 21 percent, it did lose 23 percent of its lead-in from “Revenge,” so it’s a mixed bag so far.

“Supernatural” returned on its new night to a 1.0/1, pretty much following the audience size it had the year before when it still appeared on Fridays. Last year the show averaged a 1.0/2 after losing 26 percent of its audience from the year before, and finishing tied for fifth on The CW, and No. 112 overall.

The premiere of “Once Upon a Time” was down 14 percent from its series premiere a year ago, but was actually up more than 12 percent from what the show averaged last year. It also regained its crown as ABC’s top-rated Sunday show ahead of both “Revenge” and “666 Park Avenue.”

For NBC, “Grimm” held steady, but “Revolution” continued to erode its audience, falling to a 5.2/8, down 12 percent from the week before, and 27 percent off its premiere.

It’s still only losing about 23 percent from its lead-in from the high-rated “The Voice,” but is still showing an improvement on its timeslot by 45 percent.

Fast Nationals usually provide a snapshot of what Americans are watching by pulling numbers from the top urban markets that include both live viewing and same-day timeshifted viewing. A rating point generally represents more than 1.1 million households while the share indicates the percentage of televisions turned on that was tuned to the specific program. These numbers typically shift when final ratings are issued.
