The NFL-boosted season 2 premiere of FOX’s “9-1-1” posted some strong numbers in the Live +3 ratings for the week of Sept. 17.

“9-1-1” scored the second-highest spot of the week in the adults 18-49 demo with a 3.4 rating, landing only behind NBC’s “Sunday Night Football” broadcast (6.5). It also had the biggest 18-49 growth of any broadcast show, ticking up 0.8 points (+31%) with three-days of delayed viewing, and landed ahead of both “America’s Got Talent” (2.7) and this year’s annual “Emmy Awards” (2.5) in the demo.

Unsurprisingly, “Sunday Night Football” won the top spot in the total viewers measure as well with 19.62 million, followed by the Tuesday and Wednesday night finale episodes of “America’s Got Talent” (14.85, 14.43 million).
