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 is hard and as been rare this season for 10pm shows to garner 2.5+ Of course Scandal and Revolution are the exceptions. But I feel NCIS:LA will get mid 2’s which would mean that Golden Boy should garner low 2’s. It seems really compatible with NCIS:LA. And it is going up against week competition so it should receive a 2.1 demo, which would be a respectable number.

    1.7-1.8. I see this flopping hard.

  • Ravenrei

    I can’t even guess. I was partially interested because of Chi McBride’s involvement, but Theo James just doesn’t strike me as cop material at all. It’ll probably go the way of most CBS midseason premieres and crumble, so I’m not investing myself.

  • Chris

    I watched GB on and I enjoyed it. I hope it does well

  • PW

    love the previews…hope a 3.0

  • Drew

    No Higher than 2.3 / I think without Vegas, Body Of Proof will see increased numbers.

  • MichaelChickless

    I say around a 2.2.

    I like Chi McBride, but that other guy seems a bit annoying.

    My guesses for CBS tonight:

    8:00 NCIS 3.6/20.12 MIL

    9:00 NCIS LA 2.9/ 15.67 MIL

    10:00 GOLDEN BOY 2.1/ 10.74 MIL

    Too many cop shows already :|.

    I watched the pilot and I can say nothing positive about it. The lead actor is horrible, the writing is cliche and boring. I go with demo below 2.0 – the show looks like a filler to me.

  • Joseph

    It could well be a big hit, given it’s lead-in.

    Besides, CBS has had much success with “procedural” crime dramas over the years.

    The 18-49 demo could even be a 3.7 or 3.8.

    The biggest competition won’t be ABC’s “Body of Proof” or NBC’s “Smash”, but local newscasts on Fox, CW, and My Network TV stations.

  • The End

    Between 2.1-2.5. Average age 60+ LOL

  • Tommy

    Golden Boy 2.0
    Body of Proof 1.2 or 1.3
    Smash 0.8

    Hoping these are the ratings, but really hoping Body of Proof rises tonight, hopefully there will be no interruptions on these episode.

  • Spencer

    Since CBS has been promoting it like crazy on every single commercial break, I’d say around 2.3-2.7. But it will definitely fall next week.

    @Joseph “The 18-49 demo could even be a 3.7 or 3.8.”

    I want some of what you’re smoking.

    I don’t think he’s high, sounds more like a case of Not knowing what you’re talking about syndrome :)

  • Matt

    What I want to happen for CBS tonight:

    NCIS- 3.8 21.78

    NCIS:LA- 3.0 17.15

    Golden Boy- 2.5 14.34

  • David Howell

    Sub-2 and out. Remember, CBS put Made in Jersey in the fall over this!

  • iggy

    Anyone remember NYC22? Last Season’s Mid-Season Show from CBS

    Yeah, it premiered at 10pm on a Sunday night in April after The Good Wife.

    Golden Boy isn’t leftover filler.
