Seth MacFarlane’s sci-fi series delivered a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.32 million viewers.

The show aired immediately after FOX’s late-afternoon NFL game and “The OT” in all time zones, and it had an 8 p.m. PT replay that will count as part of its final ratings, so it may adjust up.

The 2.3 is on par with the debut of “Son of Zorn” (2.4) the same weekend last year.

Is that good? How much did it lose from the game?

It lost a lot from the NFL game, but so does everything else that airs
after an NFL game. David is correct in saying that the Thursday regular
timeslot ratings will be what counts...with 9/28 and 10/5 being the
dates when the other shows arrive to offer the normal competition.

Ratings never matter since they're inaccurate rubbish anyway ... but
ratings for the first episode or two matter even less since "everybody"
tunes in to the first episode(s) just to see what it's like or what the
fuss is about, and then those who don't like it drop out again pretty
quickly.

I just finished watching the first episode. I enjoyed it more than I
expected. No laugh out loud moments but also none of the cringe worthy
moments that I was expecting. It was good enough that I'll check out
another episode.

Next Sunday it airs at 8pm Eastern. After that, it will start airing

it appears that they are airing the episodes out of order, saving
episode #2 until after episode #3 and #4 air. :-/

Typical of Fox.

I'm watching, even though it's stupid of me to trust that Fox will
support anything even vaguely resembling sf.

It's meant to be a Star Trek parody ... of course thanks to being an
Americna "comedy" show *AND* having Seth MacFarlane in charge, it was
never actually going to be even remotely funny.

I definitely liked it. Much more than I had a feeling I might after
all the negative pre-words. I don't see it as intended as a 'comedy'
-- more as a light-hearted adventure, with some humorous moments
[not all of which entirely worked for me]. (At least one "ewww" moment,
too! That aging was pretty gross.) I like the visuals -- the ship is
quite interesting. It's nice to have some SF that's fun to watch,
after all that angst ridden stuff like 'Salvation' (which I gave up
on a couple of weeks ago).

The pilot's sense of humour may become irritating after a while, but
I could tolerate it this time. Nice to see Morse back in action.
[*Bobbi* Morse of course -- the other Morse came later in the evening
and wasn't as welcome to me (:-/) I find the series irritating.]

Adjusted to 8.6 million viewers, 2.8 18-49s rating

‘The Orville’ Premiere Rating Adjusted Up To 2.8, Ties ‘This Is Us’ & ‘The Mick’
by Nellie Andreeva

In the zone-adjusted finals for Sunday, the debut of Seth MacFarlane’s sci-fi dramedy The Orville on Fox rose from a 2.3 and 7.3 million viewers to a 2.8 adults 18-49 rating and 8.6 million viewers.

In the demo, The Orville matched the debuts of NBC’s drama This Is Us and Fox’s comedy The Mick, the highest-rated launches last season (excluding 24: Legacy, which followed the Super Bowl).

I wonder if the time zone adjusted numbers also include combining both
of the West coast airings as if they were a single broadcast. Does
anyone know if the commercial load was exactly the same for the two
airings (Nielsen's typical justification for combining ratings)?

An earlier report said they were combining the numbers for multiple

many of those are new eyes.

These gimmick methods of boosting ratings often backfire, though,
because it will make the viewer drop when the show moves to Thursdays
all that more glaring.

Seth MacFarlane’s sci-fi series delivered a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.32 million viewers.
The show aired immediately after FOX’s late-afternoon NFL game and “The OT” in all time zones, and it had an 8 p.m. PT replay that will count as part of its final ratings, so it may adjust up.
The 2.3 is on par with the debut of “Son of Zorn” (2.4) the same weekend last year.
Watched it. Ugh. What a flop. Apathetic actors .. silly jokes
and absolutely no logic to the story ...
I'll watch the second episode, because it can't possibly be
worse than the first.
