Almost Human

Tonight, the new sci-fi drama Almost Human premieres on FOX before moving to its regular Monday at 8PM time period tomorrow. The heavily hyped drama was originally supposed to premiere on November 4, but in late October FOX decided to delay it until tonight when it should benefit from having a football doubleheader as a lead-in. The potential flaw in this plan is that the second half of the episode will now face what looks like it will be a strong Sunday Night Football match-up.  If FOX's late game runs more than a half hour overtime, part of the Almost Human premiere could end up facing off against ratings  juggernaut The Walking Dead. FOX's other freshman drama, Sleepy Hollow, has been a breakout hit this season, It premiered to a huge 3.5 adults 18-49 rating on Monday, September 17 against far weaker competition. So how do you think Almost Human will do? Make your predictions!


  • Alex

    <2.2, this show has almost zero buzz right now.

  • Sarah

    I may not like it, but I think it’ll get at least a 3.5.

  • CBSviewer

    3.0-3.5 thanks to Football but it will flop on Monday.

  • Jaime04

    2.2 at best. No interest…

  • John A

    Ill go with a 3.0. The show sounds stupid but ill watch the first few episodes since it has the Fringe showrunner on it. I expect to hate but hope to be surprised.

  • Niallerz24

    Once Upon a Time: 2.2 and 7.00 million viewers
    Revenge: 1.5 and 6.00 million viewers
    Betrayal: 0.9 and 3.50 million viewers
    The Good Wife: 1.6 and 9.90 million viewers
    The Mentalist: 1.4 and 8.80 million viewers
    Almost Human: 2.5 – 3.0 and between 7 and 9 million viewers, new show, people might check it out and football overrun will occur too.

  • John A

    Oh and can this get a back 9 if succesful since its starting in November or just the 13 episodes?

  • CBSviewer

    @ John A

    I doubt it will get a back-9 order. Maybe 5 more episodes to end the Season in April.

  • josh

    I hope it wont hurt once upon a time tonight is the peter pan story

  • Jess

    That show was pretty much the only thing that fox promoted in months so they’ll got 3.4 or something like that IMO.. But I’m more wondering what they’ll do on monday

  • luka

    4.4 and 12 milion viewers

  • victor Hugo

    10 million viewers and 3.8 rating

  • Percysowner

    I can never predict these things. As it stands Almost Human is going in slots where I’m already Watching/DVRing 2 shows. Tonight its Amazing Race and OUAT, tomorrow it’s HIMYM and The Voice. I am going to try and catch it on Demand, because it sounds like my kind of show.

  • HeadlessHorseman

    It think it will premiere well with a 3.2 or above, but it’ll tumble to around 2.4 when it’s moved to Monday.

  • Flame

    2.4 – it will run into Football and The Walking Dead

  • Sarah


    “But I’m more wondering what they’ll do on monday”

    Me too. But it won’t go against The Voice live until next week.

  • k:Alex

    Hugh premier and fall too a mid 2.s .
    I think around 3.7 – 4.0 .

  • DenverDean

    Depends on: 1) how late the game run; 2) whether FOX has to run TO for more than a few minutes to sync up to 8 PM. If football finishes at 7:30, it will be on low end, if closer to 8PM will get the ratings halo (ala 60M), but tonight’s SNF is going to be big (Peyton and the Broncos get big ratings anyway), but this is a huge match between 9-0 Chiefs and 8-1 Broncs. Not sure this was best strategy.

  • Scandalfan

    2.2 and around 8M viewers.

  • Carmen

    Is the episode on tomorrow night (Monday), also the same pilot episode?
