Predict the Premiere Ratings of Single Parents and A Million Little Things

Premiere Week continues tonight with the premieres of two ABC shows (their first newbies of the season), Single Parents and A Million Little Things. The shows are taking over for American Housewife (which moves to 8:30 to replace Speechless) and the canceled-then-revived by Netflix Designated Survivor.

Single Parents, Wednesdays at 9:30 on ABC:
The first new comedy the debut in premiere week (not counting early premieres of Rel and I Feel Bad) is Single Parents, a different sort of family comedy for ABC. While traditional family comedies are their forté, unconvential family comedy Splitting Up Together did reasonable well last season and it easily earned itself a second season. The series stars SNL's Taran Killam, Everybody Loves Raymond's Brad Garrett, and Gossip Girl's Leighton Meester. Can it start as well as previous Wednesday at 9:30 comedies like Blackish and American Housewife, or will it disappoint?

A Million Little Things, Wednesdays at 10 on ABC:
The second premiere of the night, A Million Little Things has been heavily promoted by its network, making it one of their most important launches of the fall. It's taking over for the tremendous disappointment that was Designated Survivor, so it doesn't have a huge bar to pass in order to be considered a success. However, ABC has been known recently for their struggles in the drama department. Will A Million Little Things be another ABC flop or a rare drama gem for them?
