Ratings in Pieces: Life in Pieces, Blindspot, Minority Report + More

On Monday, September 21, primetime broadcast television premiered three new shows: Life in Pieces aired after The Big Bang Theory at 8:30 on CBS; Minority Report aired at 9 on FOX; and Blindspot aired at 10 on NBC. All three shows had some of the best lead-ins, if not the best lead-ins, the respective networks have to offer, so let's take a look at how they did.

Blindspot had a very healthy 3.1 A18-49 rating, and it's half-hours were 3.3/2.9. This meant it's first half-hour had an 87% retention from lead-in The Voice's final half-hour, and was down from the year-ago performance of The Blacklist in the same time slot (3.5).

Meanwhile, Life in Pieces had a 2.7 A18-49 rating, and had a promising 60% retention rate from The Big Bang Theory's 4.5. It is down drastically from the year-to-year time slot performer, but then again that performer was The Big Bang Theory with a 6.1.

Finally, Minority Report premiered to a mere 1.1 A18-49 rating, down from it's lead-in Gotham's mere 1.6. It is also down almost 50% from the 2.0 rating that previous time slot occupant Sleepy Hollow had for it's Season 2 premiere. Bottom line: that's an extremely disappointing result from both shows and it looks like Gotham may be taking the sophomore slump to a new level.

Elsewhere, Castle and NCIS: LA had season premieres of 1.2 A18-49. Big ouch.
