Final Broadcast Ratings: October 3, 2016

Three of the Big 4 networks had season/series premieres, two of which should be pleased with their respective results. ABC's CONVICTION was last in its 10 PM time slot, grabbing just 5.2 million viewers and a 0.9 rating in Adults 18-49. Erosion from its DANCING WITH THE STARS lead in was nearly 50% in total viewers and  in the A18-49 demo. It is not surprising that ABC placed third on the night.

NBC, the #1 network on the night, gave us the new sci-fi drama, TIMELESS, at 10 PM, and it drew 7.6 million viewers and a 1.8 rating in Adults 18-49. Retention out of THE VOICE was 65% in total viewers and just 60% in the A18-49 demo. Compared to BLINDSPOT's series premiere, last fall, TIMELESS is off by three million viewers and off by more than 40% in the demo.

The two hour season premiere of SCORPION, on CBS, was the most watched premiere of the night, with 8.3 million viewers. Demo retention from its KEVIN CAN WAIT lead in was 68% in the A18-49 and A25-54 demos. Compared to last year's premiere, SCORPION is down 2.8 million viewers and 25% in the A18-49 demographic. CBS was preempted in Minnesota for the MNF game.
