Ratings: QUANTICO Has Solid Opening, But Other Shows on the Decline

Quantico

QUANTICO enjoyed a solid series premiere on ABC, but the network’s other returning shows suffered a drop. In fact, ONCE UPON A TIME’s 1.8 rating among the key demo was a sharp drop from the 3.5 rating it got in last year’s season premiere. Meanwhile, NBC aired football and scored some big ratings, but CBS was no slouch with a new 60 MINUTES episode and the series finale movie for CSI.

In terms of total viewers, NBC won the night (16.9 million), followed by CBS (13.9 million), ABC (5.7 million) and Fox (2.9 million). See all numbers below (live + same day total viewers & adults 18-49 ratings).
