‘Touch’ Officially Premieres, How Will It Rate? (Poll)
The official premiere of Touch is tonight at 9pm following American Idol. Touch’s pilot episode aired in a special preview on Wednesday, January 25 (also following American Idol) and drew a 3.9 rating with adults 18-49. Last Thursday Fox repeated the pilot at 9pm and it drew a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating.
CBS has basketball and Grey’s Anatomy is a repeat tonight and a new 30 Rock is airing at 9pm instead of The Office. Working for it versus January is that it has had the benefit of time and the pilot being available and it shouldn’t get hit with much Daylight Saving Time effect at 9pm. Working against it, in its special preview in January its American Idol lead-in had a 6.5 adults 18-49 rating. Last Thursday American Idol had a 4.6 adults 18-49 rating. Guessing never got me anywhere, but my guess is it does about as well tonight as it did in its special preview in January.
