Guess the Ratings for "Parenthood's" Season 4 Premiere? (Poll)

Parenthood is one of this season's early premieres, returning for its fourth season tonight. Of course, it's been off the air for a while with its third season finishing up on February 28, 2012.  It premiered early for its third season last year too, on September 13, 2011. Last year's premiere drew a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating (out of lead-in America's Got Talent, which drew a 3.8 adults 18-49 rating). That 2.2 tied a season high for the show which was pretty consistent through most of its third season. It did dip as low as a 1.6 adults 18-49 rating a couple of times in the winter but its finale drew a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

How will it do tonight? It's lead-in is the second episode of The New Normal premiering in its regular time slot.


No polls for the time period premiere of Go On or the second episode of The New Normal, but feel free to make your guesses for those in the comments.

    Based on half hrs #s of the voice today from 8-9, i dont think it will hit 4.0 tomorrow too. But i could be wrong. It has no competition tonight.

    2.6-2.8 for Go On and 2.4-2.6 for TNN.
    But with the competition only from weakening SYTYCD, i wont be surprised if Go On hit 3.0.

    As for Parenthood, i think it’s another 2.2.

  • Richard

    i guess a 1.8. hate to be cynical. just trying ot be rational and not let my love for this show cloud my judgement. NBC should have also kept awake. that was the best show on tv besides justified and breaking bad. dexter sucks now

  • Dennis

    1.7 for Parenthood
    3.6 for the Voice
    2.2 for Go On

    When will the “guess the first new show of the season to be canceled” poll go up?

  • RG-X

    I love parenthood – but there has been nearly ZERO promotions for it until last week –

    With it following the crappy New Normal show tonite – most likely a 1.7-1.8 at best – Darn It! Needs a Better lead in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Jamie

    The Voice 3.8
    Go On 2.5
    The New Normal 1.5
    Parenthood 1.8

    Go On:

    The New Normal:

  • iggy

    1.5 because of the lack of lead-in support.

  • Liam

    I think it will get about a 2.1. The premiere should be up verses on last seasons finale.

  • Raykov

    The Voice – 3.8
    Go On – 2.8
    The New Normal – 2.3
    Parenthood – 2.1

  • CrimTV

    The Voice – 4.0
    Go On – 3.3
    The New Normal – 2.4
    Parenthood – 2.1

  • Oliver

    I’m convinced Go On will get 3.0+. TNN will drop slightly to low 2s and Parenthood will get high 1s.

  • Kenny

    Go-on is going to do very well tonight if the repeat was any indication.
    Parenthood may not hit 2.0

  • Lena

    I would be nice if it cracked 2.0. I hope it does ok with the new lead in.

  • Lena

    You really didn´t try hard to find better Parenthood picture, did you.
