The NFL-assisted premiere of “The Mick” posted decent ratings gains in the three days after its debut — decent enough to make it the top comedy premiere of the 2016-17 season to date in adults 18-49.

The FOX show grew by seven tenths of a point to a 3.5 with three days of DVR and on-demand viewing. That moves it ahead of “Kevin Can Wait” and “The Good Place” (each 3.3) for the best comedy series premiere this season.

The final week of 2016 was pretty light on original programming on the English-language networks, so several shows from Univision and Telemundo made it into the Top 25 for the week.
