That’s the highest single premiere ratings figure since 2007’s The Singing Bee and for CBS that’s the highest premiere episode rating since 2000’s Big Brother launch (which was a massive 22.3m). 13.1m – kung pow with a side of kick ass indeed!
In Australia the premiere hit 1.175m to come in #6 for the day and the only U.S. show in the top 10. Australia’s top ten is dominated by news and local reality trash. For Australia it’s a big win for Channel 10, whose ratings performances have really been in the toilet for the better part of a year with only Masterchef being able to crack the top ten of late… until now. Can the audience hold on for next week?
