Cop procedural Golden Boy is premiering tonight on CBS after NCIS: Los Angeles. This drama, which centers around the youngest police commissioner in New York City has received some decidedly mixed reviews thus far, but since this type of program is definitely in CBS' wheelhouse, viewers may still show up to check it out. So what do you think? Predict the ratings below for the Golden Boy premiere and tell us why in the comments!

    It will totally tank… It will premiere around 2.0 and fall below 1.0 after moving to Fridays

  • Carmen

    A premiere on CBS against 2 lightweight competition shows should get GB somewhere around a 2.8 – 3.2 or so.

    I don’t particularly like what I’ve read about the premise, but I’m going to give it a shot to see how they handle it (premise). Chi McBride is almost always good.

  • MissJo

    lower than 2.0. It won’t do better than Vegas.

    It looks good but in the time I’ve followed ratings I’ve never personally seen a CBS midseason series do well so:

    7 million viewers

    I think it will surprise. It will do much better than Vegas. I voted for 2.6-3.0. I wouldn’t be surprise if it gets higher. Anything lower than 2.0 would be a disappointment since CBS promoted it like crazy (liike The Job).

    BAM! Here goes up the POLL

    GOLDEN BOY 2.1


    It falls to mid 1’s

    I want SARAH JONES BACK ON MY TV SCREEN STAT instead of this dude.

  • Brian

    2.5 and 11 million

  • Ryne


  • Victorius

    Well, it’s competition is Body of Proof and Smash, two shows that are doing terribly, so it should be an easier fight.

    I’d say 2.6-3.0

  • TBFL

    I’m guessing NOT better than Vegas…in selfish hope that Vegas becomes the next Good Wife – worst rated show that CBS keeps alive anyway.

  • Cyrax86


  • Paulo Portugal

    I bet a 2.2 and 14 million viewers. But if Golden boy gets above a 2.5 and hold 2.2-2.4 in the next airing CBS shouldn’t move the show to fridays.

  • Skylar James


  • EatMorePez

    It currently has a 62/100 rating on Metacritic, with five positive, five mixed and zero negative reviews.

    I’ll guess a 2.4 rating for tonight.
