Update 2: night’s full ratings now available.
Fringe pulled a 1.5 adults 18-49 rating (and Kitchen Nightmares a 1.6) according to @MaskedScheduler. That’s 21% lower than its Friday premiere last winter, but 25% higher than the 1.2 adults 18-49 rating it scored in its season finale. Over 30% of our polled readers nailed it.
Before you go all “what about A Gifted Man’ etc on us, we have not seen the night’s full numbers just yet, but we’ll have full details (viewers and 18-49 demo) for all broadcast network primetime shows up hopefully by noon ET.
Update: A Gifted Man premiered to a 1.4 adults 18-49 rating and 9.3 million viewers.
