How to Live With Your parents for the Rest of Your Life

Tonight comedy How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest of Your Life) debuts on ABC. It's airing in what should be ABC's best time period, following its biggest hit Modern Family,which has admittedly been slipping in the ratings recently. But neither Happy Endings nor the seemingly very compatible Suburgatory flourished on Wednesdays at 9:30. Last week, Suburgatory earned a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating.

Premiering so late in the season rarely works out well for shows, though Scandal launched on ABC in April 2012 and grew into a hit. So how do you think the How To Live With Your Parents (For The Rest of Your Life) will fare? Make your predictions.

    This has flop writen all over. 1.6

    Interesting to see how well Surbugatory will do in it’s old slot.

  • Paul

    It can’t be nothing but a hit with a lead in of Modern Family!!

    IDC about tonight’s ratings…unless ppl would rather tune into Idol’s last half hour or an hour long drama or something off tv or even turn off the tv & miss Nashville.

    I care more about Week 4 & beyond ratings, so May. Once the nostalgia & all Modern Family’s viewers that give it a chance, who are willing to, then the real ratings will occur.

    B/c of the timeslot & my belief that except for Idol, most ppl don’t want to tune into some drama (CM/SVU/SPN) half way through, I don’t expect mid to low 1s. I can’t rule out high 1s b/c Nashville isn’t that big of a draw to stay in front of the tv. I think that Modern Family may also loose a tenth or two of the LIVE audience, but remain the same for L+SD, as ppl will choose to watch the hour long drama (CM/SVU/SPN) of their choice, then watch the DVR of Modern Family. Which means that those hour long dramas will gain a slight tick in LIVE, even though the L+SD won’t see a difference. I think that high 2s is unlikely. 3s is just unrealistic. 1.7-2.4 is my final guess. IDC that that’s not really specific. It says it won’t be a flop or a hit, fo the first week, at the very least.

    My predictions:

    The Middle 1.8
    Suburgatory 1.9
    Modern Family 3.3
    How to Live with Your Parents 2.1
    Nashville 1.5

    Survivor 2.5

  • Kyle

    I actually liked the show. I sampled it.

    I would say it would hold a decent amount out of Modern Family of a 2.8-3.0.

  • Anon

    I don’t know about this week, but next week it will be sub-1.5.

    I suspect there’s going to be a massive drop-off regardless of what last night’s ratings turn out to be, the premiere was painfully unfunny.

  • Work on the show

    2.9/8 18-49. 8.44 million viewers. Over 70% retention from MF. Just about all of you were completely wrong.
