[TV] Ratings: Sleepy Hollow Starts Strong For FOX
Posted by Joseph Lee on 09.17.2013
Dancing with the Stars is also up...
FOX's Sleepy Hollow premiered to a strong start, tying the demographic for its hour and helping the network win the measure for the night. It was up over FOX's Mob Doctor premiere in the same time slot last year and beat the premiere of The Following in the spring. Meanwhile, Dancing with the Stars' season 17 had a bigger start than last fall's all-star season and better demographic numbers than either show last season. The numbers may change due to the Pittsburgh affiliate carrying Monday Night Football. The premiere of Bones was in line with its premiere last year and CBS' Under the Dome season finale was up.
ABC won with 13.4 million viewers and an 8.6 rating/13 share in households for the night, followed by FOX (8.8 million, 5.4/8), CBS (7.2 million, 4.6/7), NBC (3.4 million, 2.1/3) and The CW (602,000, 0.4/1) trailed.
FOX won the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.8 rating, followed by ABC (2.6), CBS (1.9), NBC (1.2) and The CW (0.2).
