Those keeping score on a daily basis already know that Revolution (with it's second episode) was the number one new show in premiere week with adults 18-49 followed by Elementary. But below there are two tables (one 18-49, one total viewers) with all the new Monday-Thursday broadcast series in one place.

Update: you'll note The Neighbors (which drew a 3.2) isn't on the list and would have been second with adults 18-49. It wasn't on this list because this report excluded special previews that didn't air in their normal time slot, but indeed it was still the #2  new show with adults 18-49 on the week.

by adults 18-49:

    CBS is doing great as always. A little hurt by Hawaii 5 0 and Partners but the rest of the week was pretty strong. Oh you guys cry about a 3.5 for 21/2 Men but NBC would give anything for those numbers. Person of Interest at 2.9 is hardly a disaster. Hawaii 5 0 will be decided this week (tomorrow night). NBC will go down after the Voice auditions and so will their shows.

  • I like this show

    I watched 3 new dramas Revolution, Vegas and Last Resort, Last Resort BY FAR was the most impressive pilot. Not sure what the issue is with the ratings for it is timeslot? material? whatever it is hopefully people give it a shot week 2. I enjoy Revolution and Vegas but I really want LR to stay right now out of the 3. GO On is really the only new comedy I tried I like it but dont think it’s going to be a all time great show I am behind so not sure i will keep up with it. Animal Practice I watched also it’s not great but it has it’s moments I think it’s better than last years Chelsea. Only other new show I am waiting for is The Calling I think is the name of it. POI was the only show I loved last year so if I get one new show I will be happy.

  • I like this show

    Oh and whoever green lit the mob doctor needs to be canned for their transgression I KNEW it would bomb. “Let’s just replace House with another Doctor” GREAT idea FOX. YOU have ZERO on your network that I watch besides when I feel like watching cartoons on sunday. If The Calling fails you are officially worse than NBC.

    can we relax with the “next week will tell” for revolution already… it’s a good show and it’s ratings won’t be dropping much, that time slow is perfect. A lot of people are getting fed up with hawaii five O with the family storylines – so they’ve turned to revolution… not to mention revolution kind of has a little game of thrones to it as well whic his always a good thing. Last week was big for revolution.

    I said before the shows premiered – Revolution, Elementary, and possibly Chicago Fire will be the new good shows so far I’m doing good!

    Made in Jersey should be moved . Friday is a terrible slot for a good show. Its this years Ugly Betty. 666 park avenue is awful. guys with kids should lead in animal hospital which is a terrible show. Move on is great and should be picked up. I wasn’t thrilled that they moved the mentalist to Sundays really you think that’s where to put it.Neighbors won’t last gimmick shows don’t. Vegas won’t last period pieces don’t work. Remember the playboy club. The best new drama will be Nashville. Wait and see. You think Fox is rethinking Glee’s move to Thursdays…I bet they will moveit. Grey anatomy and once upon a time really delivered good shows and even private practice episode was good after last year.. they r allowing some characters to be happy…

    NBC premired a week early and some shows during the olympics . Go on will be a keeper. Should put guys with kids after it. Boy is animal hospital awful or what. Chimp acts better. ABC big winner will be Nashville. Will the ow even exist next year. Does anyone care?

    Made In Jersey to Mondays it is. Move that unplanned stinker this season (Hawaii 5-0) to Friday after CSI NY

    Revolution – what a stinker.
    The Last Resort – what a surprise. Best I’ve seen so far.
