Seems like viewers are definitely on the Forever train. The pilot episode drew in 1.7 rating Monday night, and bumped up to a 1.8 after the second episode attracting 6.5 million viewers. It’s a rare-rise for the second episode of a series, but definitely welcome. The show is great, so if you haven’t seen it, please watch! The drama climbed in second place to NBC’s Chicago Fire, which is super impressive. They might have found a challenger to the fire-fighter drama, if ratings hold.
ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D rose to a 2.1 rating. That’s down a lot from it’s premiere rating of 4.7 last year, although it’s important to note SHIELD is a heavily DVR’ed show. Projections from Late + 7 indicate it would reach a 3.1 rating, but that’s still down 58% from its debut.
Chicago Fire premiered to a 2.7 rating, proving that a good cliff-hanger can be everything and killing off a character, means huge numbers. The show set a new high for viewers as 9.4 million tuned in for the premiere, up 42% from the May finale.
CBS’s Person of Interest fell to a 1.8, down 22% from last fall. It opened to 10.7 million viewers. DVR views might save them though.
Longtime runners NCIS: New Orleans drew in 17 million with a rating of 2.5, although it was down 17% from last seasons premiere of NCIS: LA. For now, it’s still the most watched fall premiere, taking the title from Madam Secretary.
NCIS opened to 18 million views.
Fox took a pretty big hit. Utopia was down 20% to a 0.8 rating. New Girl down 24% to a 1.3 rating and The Mindy Project down 23% to a 1.0 rating. These ratings after the network got a week head start.

‘The Bold Type’ Announces Final Season Premiere Date
Mandatory meeting in the fashion closet.
The Bold Type previously announced that its fifth season will be its last, and now, we have a premiere date!
Freeform announced the series will return on Wednesday, May 26!
— The Bold Type (@TheBoldTypeTV) April 8, 2021
Per the synopsis, Kat, Jane, and Sutton are “on the brink of defining who they really are and how best to leave their mark on the world.”
Season 4 ended prematurely on July 16, 2020, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
As a refresher, the season ended with Sutton and Richard splitting, Kat hooking up with Eva despite the two sharing significantly different political views and then calling things off, and Jane challenging Jacqueline on a controversial story that involved her husband while also possibly crushing on one of her writers.
The upcoming final season will be miniature in size as it will only feature six episodes.
Younger Season 7 Trailer: Does Liza Have a New Man in Her Life?
Younger is ready to turn the final page!
Ahead of the seventh and final season, Paramount+ released a lengthy two-minute trailer that gives fans a glimpse of how it all ends.
The clip opens with a flashback to Charles (Peter Hermann) asking Liza (Sutton Foster) to marry him during the season 6 finale.
But, of course, it’s unclear if Liza accepted the proposal as the next scene finds her ex, Josh (Nico Tortorella), and her friend, Lauren (Molly Kate Bernard), wondering if she said yes.
News of the possible engagement spreads fast as Liza’s bestie, Kelsey (Hilary Duff), informs her that she “just heard the news,” while her other bestie, Maggie (Debi Mazar), laments that she’s “impressed” with Charles.
However, Liza doesn’t seem to think the proposal was all that romantic, which leads me to believe that maybe the couple isn’t headed down the aisle anytime soon.
Especially because the rest of the trailer seems to show trouble in paradise!
And this time, it may not be Josh’s fault… though, one scene does show him asking Liza: “if I would have said something sooner, would it have made a difference?”
Liza’s always struggled to choose between Charles and Josh, however, there may be a new man taking up residence in Liza’s life: surf legend Kai Manning, who is shopping a book at Empirical/Millennial.
And while there’s a scene of Liza and Charles kissing underneath the fireworks, there’s also some tension as he informs her that he “had to bend a lot” to be with her.
Tension also builds as it looks like Quinn is moving in on Liza’s man and Charles may be entertaining the idea!
New relationships seem to be on the horizon as Josh is spotted with a new woman by his side as his baby momma, Claire, returns.
Maggie is also smitten with a woman named Camila.
And elsewhere, Kelsey contemplates her future asking Lauren if she should “go back to Millennial,” before informing Quinn of her decision, which the billionaire calls “running home to daddy.”
‘Younger’ Announces Final Season Premiere Date, Loses Two Series Regulars

Per TV Line, the duo will be back in a recurring capacity.
“Due to scheduling and Covid related matters, Miriam Shor and Charles Michael Davis were unable to be season seven cast regulars,” series creator Darren Star said in a statement to the news outlet.
“However, they will always be a much loved and integral part of the Younger family and have added so much heart and soul to the series.”
