TV Ratings 7/24/17: Midnight, Texas Does OK, Somewhere Between Ties Still Star-Crossed (UPDATED)

Monday night saw two brand new premieres, one on ABC and one on NBC. NBC's premiere predictably went much better, with Midnight, Texas debuting to a perfectly fine 0.9. It's nothing fantastic, but it should be enough to survive as long as it can hold up. That makes it the highest rated Summer scripted debut of the year (not counting Downward Dog, which technically premiered in-season but had a 1.1 debut). Midnight's lead-in, American Ninja Warrior, was down a tenth from last week, tying its season-to-date average. Over on ABC, Somewhere Between had a larger lead-in than Midnight (a 1.6 Bachelorette), but it could only manage a 0.6. It's another flop in a long line of Summer disappointments for ABC, and there's really been no standouts from this Summer class. They're a bunch of low-rated duds. But hey, at least Somewhere Between did better than Still Star-Crossed. Not exactly a benchmark for success there, but it's something. Over on Fox, SYTYCD once again did meh, while Superhuman once again did terrible. What a surprise. The CW's Whose Line? was the only other original last night, and it ticked up to a 0.3, with the 9:30 repeat also ticking up.  CBS had okay-rated repeats for the first two hours before Scorpion's 0.4 at 10.

Finals Update: Somewhere Between (-0.1) adjusted down to tie the Still Star-Crossed debut. A Life in Pieces repeat (-0.1) also came down in the finals.
