Friday night’s Game 7 earned a household rating of 16.2 — the biggest since 2004, when the Red Sox won its first title in 86 years. If you take out games played by the Red Sox or Yankees, it was the top-rated overnight World Series game since 2002 and was Fox’s largest overnight audience measurement since last season’s American Idol finale.
Chuck may have done poorly (3.4 million and a 1.0 rating) but,
Grimm, however, opened really well, all things considered. The supernatural drama delivered 6.5 million viewers and a 2.1 in the demo. That’s building 110 percent upon its lead in. Grimm ranked as Friday’s highest-rated non-sports show and, in fact, was the highest-rated non-sports show that’s aired on a Friday since last December. Grimm also built slightly from 8 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. This is definitely a promising start for a Friday drama.
And here’s some food for thought: Grimm had a higher-rated premiere than NBC’s Prime Suspect or Playboy Club — yet arguably had the toughest time period launch of any new fall show.
