Monday Premiere Ratings: Gotham Good, Sleepy Slips, Big Bang Explodes

Published

Blast off!

The Fall TV schedule has kicked off this week,with much anticipated premieres from Gotham, Sleepy Hollow and the Big Bang Theory to name a few. In all honesty, the competition was super high for a Monday night, so no-hard feelings for the shows who didn’t do so hot in ratings.

Let’s take a look.

Big Bang Theory dominated the Monday night, reaching 18.1 million viewers and scoring a 5.4 rating. That’s up from the May’s season finale and matching last years premiere.

Scorpion premiered with 13.8 million viewers and a 3.2 rating, which is up from what other comedies rated in the same slot last year. A huge test for the show will be how it does in delayed DVR views, especially when Big Bang goes back to Thursday nights. CBS projects a 47% increase.

Gotham got off on a good foot, drawing in 8.2 million viewers with a 3.2 rating, giving Fox it’s best Monday 8pm premiere since Prison Break. FOX forsees a 57% growth in delayed views though, which is great.

Sleepy Hollow took a big hit, surprisingly.  The season 2 premiere drew in 5.5 million viewers with a 2.0 rating– down from last years premiere of 10 million viewers…and it’s season 1 finale of 6.9 million. Could this be a side-effect of bad PR last month?

Thankfully for Sleepy fans, this show gets a lot of DVR action. FOX believes Sleepy will recoup a lot of views once the live-plus-seven data comes in. Somewhere around 90%.

Netflix Passes on Renewing Canceled NBC Drama ‘Manifest’

Manifest Season Finale Review Mayday Part 1 and 2 Season 3 Episode 12 and 13

Manifest will not fly again.

Netflix has officially passed on renewing the Manifestaccording to Deadline

The plane drama was abruptly canceled after three seasons leaving fans with absolutely no answers as to what led to the disappearance of Flight 828. 

It’s a surprising move considering the series has been steadily holding at #1 after being added to Netflix.

Manifest Season Finale – [SPOILER] Dies (3×12 and 3×13)

Fans also rallied on social media with the #SaveManifest campaign, but sadly, all efforts were unsuccessful. 

Sources say that since Netflix opted to pass on saving the drama, Warner Bros. Television, the studio responsible for the series, has concluded efforts to rehome it as it’s reportedly too complicated with rights and cast contracts. 

For now, reps for Netflix and WBTV declined to comment.

However, it seems to be a done deal as series creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm the solemn news tweeting: “Manifest Gratitude, Final Edition Thank YOU, our fans. You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018. Ever since, you’ve watched religiously, parsed every word, cried a lot, laughed a little, puzzle-solved, and never, ever, wavered in your support. I’ll never forget it.”

The third season ended early this month with several cliffhangers, which makes this cancellation and failed rescue mission all the more heartbreaking. 

It’s unclear if NBC is totally against giving the series a wrap-up movie as it did with Timeless, but man, don’t fans deserve closure?

The series was initially pitched as a six-season drama, which means there’s plenty more story to tell. 

Even Rake agreed that fans deserve answers. After all, we didn’t spend three years of our lives tuning in weekly to find out what happened to the plane just to be left hanging.

We all know what happens to those who ignore Callings — it’s not good.

‘Friends’ Actor James Michael Tyler Opens Up About Stage 4 Prostate Cancer

James Michael Tyler

James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther, the Central Perk manager on the classic sitcom Friends, opened up about his Stage 4 Prostate Cancer on the Today show Monday morning.

After receiving the grim diagnosis in September 2018, the then 56-year-old actor was put on hormone therapy. It worked for a while before eventually spreading to his spine leaving him paralyzed in his lower body.

He revealed that he’s “been dealing with that diagnosis for almost the past three years…It’s stage 4 [now] late-stage cancer. So eventually, you know, it’s probably going to get me.”

During the recent HBO Max Friends reunion, Tyler had originally planned on attending in person but chose to join virtually, so as to not bring a downer on the happy moment.

“It was bittersweet, honestly. I was very happy to be included,” he said.

Now, he’s using his platform as a way to provide the important message to all men to get screened early, saying that “there are other options available to men if they catch it before me. Next time you go in for just a basic exam or yearly check-up, please ask your doctor for a PSA test.”

“I don’t want people to have to go through what I’ve been going through,” he said. “This is not…an easy process.”
