Predict the Ratings for the Premieres of Rise and For The People

Tonight will see the premieres of two new shows at 10 PM: NBC's Rise and ABC's For the People, two very different shows in both subject matter and expectations. Let's make some predictions.

Rise, 10 PM on NBC:
The show that's in a far better position is NBC's Rise. Rise will receive a lead-in from the finale of This Is Us, NBC's #1 drama. The musical drama stars How I Met Your Mother's Josh Radnor, The View's Rosie Perez, and Moana star Auli'i Cravalho. The series was developed by Jason Katims, of Parenthood fame. Do you think Rise can rise to the occasion, or will it be a ratings disappointment?

For the People, 10 PM on ABC:
The other premiere of the night is Shondaland's newest entry, For the People. This legal drama will recieve a Blackish lead-in for its debut in ABC's so-called "death slot." Tuesdays at 10 has been occupied by Kevin (Probably) for all of this season so far. That series drew low ratings after an OK premiere. Will For the People be able to improve on that performance?
