    Council of Dads looks almost like a hit when compared to Blindspot. Strong showing for WWTBAM.

      The 7pm numbers for NBC are usually fairly strong. Had Mitch posted them it’d make Council of Dads look even more the flop.

        You can see in the Half Hours from last night that it starts out relatively high, likely due to that strong lead-out, but then falls like a brick….

    I actually watched last nights ABC game night line up for the first time ever and was surprisingly entertained. If I have to watch reality TV, I’ll pick game shows over reality competition any day! Good job ABC.

      Holey Moley was also even in the 18-49 demo from the premiere which is pretty good. ABC made the right call renewing the series despite the numbers falling a fair bit.
