Tonight, two new shows premiere. On ABC, comedy Super Fun Night (premise: three socially inept women try to have a good time) debuts in the cushy post-Modern Family spot. ABC has put a lot of effort in to promoting it. If you watched the network at all during the summer, you probably had a picture of star Rebel Wilson block out the bottom right hand corner of your TV screen at least once. But the network recently decided to air a different episode in place of the pilot which is not a good sign. Last year the first episode of The Neighbors garnered a 3,2 in the time period on September 27, 2012. Then Suburgatory took over the time period, garnering a 2.8n adults 18-49 rating for its season premiere on October 17, 2012.
On NBC, Ironside, a remake of a 1970s police drama, takes over the 10PM time period. Last season, Chicago Fire premiered to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating. Given the growth of that series over the course of the season, NBC may be willing to be patient if Ironside is not an immediate hit.
How do you think the premieres of both shows will fare? Make your predictions than explain your reasoning in the comments.
