    The Equalizer is beginning its descent to the inevitable .05 range. Give it another 2 episodes. Another waste of the post Superbowl timeslot.

    And never understood why FOX renewed Bless the Harts. Horrible numbers if that was an original episode. Bad even if it was a repeat.

      I think you mean the 0.5 range. A .05 rating is something you might see for Newsmax or The Weather Channel.

      For past 2 weeks, Equalizer has beaten AI in total viewers. However, the show is skewing higher with older adults vs key demos that AI gets.

      Each episode’s getting better IMO, but the writing’s pretty basic paint by numbers still.

      Despite that fact, I actually like the show w/ last night’s episode the best yet & Queen Latifah is helping it out a lot. Chris Noth’s doesn’t appear to have a huge presence nor her Aunt Vi thus far. I wish she had Benjamin Bratt in Noth’s role. I really liked them together in “Star.”

    The Batwoman ratings would be a lot higher if it wasn’t badly written obnoxiously political trash. I feel bad for the cast who have to read those scripts.

    Ruby Rose wasn’t perfect but had she had better writing to work with shed at least have kept the first seasons ratings from nosediving.

  3. 69 Road Runner

    Another good episode of The Rookie. I hope the numbers adjust up.

      The Rookie is one of a handful of shows that gets a huge jump (>100%) in delayed viewing (L+7). The Good Doctor, Seal Team, SWAT, The Conners, and SVU all generally fall into that category.
