One of Thursday’s three series premieres had a solid start. The other two, not so much.
CBS’ comedy “Superior Donuts” debuted to a 1.9 rating in adults 18-49 coming out of “The Big Bang Theory” (3.1). That matches the debut for “The Great Indoors” in the same spot earlier in the fall, and its 10.61 million viewers were the second-most for a comedy series premiere this season, behind “Kevin Can Wait.”
NBC’s “Powerless” put up a 1.1 for its premiere, in line with recent episodes of “The Good Place” but 0.3 below the latter’s Thursday debut in the fall. CBS’ “Training Day” managed only a 0.9 at 10 o’clock.
Elsewhere, ABC’s TGIT lineup was down some from last week but still gave the network a win for the night. “Grey’s Anatomy” (2.3) fell 0.3 vs. last week, and “Scandal” (1.8) and “How to Get Away with Murder” (1.3) each dipped 0.2.
“Riverdale” drew a 0.4 for The CW, down a tenth from its premiere last week. “Supernatural” held steady at 0.6. NBC’s “Superstore” and “Chicago Med” (1.2 each) were in line with recent performances, while “The Blacklist” (0.9) was off a tenth from last week.
CBS’ other comedies, “Mom” (1.6) and “Life in Pieces” (1.3), were down 0.1 and 0.2 vs. last week.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.8/6||1.6/5||1.1/4||0.9/3||0.5/2|
|Total Viewers (millions)||6.57||8.34||4.93||2.94||1.44|

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
