    ‘Cracked (Ovation at 9:30PM)’ premiere ratings? Thanks!

    Cable: Deliciousness returns with new lows

    Broadcast: The Good Doctor steady, The Voice down by 800,000+

    Nothing much to see here


    • ntscuser

      Uh? It’s a new series low for The Good Doctor.


      • Anthony

        The 18-49 rating/share, yes! But viewership-wise, the series low is 3.9 million, and I believe that was 4 weeks ago. This week had 4.26M, and last week had 4.24 million, so steady so far.

    Debris has lost something, it is not that interesting anymore.

    And American Idol really needs to get rid of Katy Perry she is making that show unwatchable acting like a Prima Donna.
