The new-look “Batwoman” managed just a 0.1 rating last night in the key demo and 663,000 total viewers. Back on Sunday, Oct. 6, 2019, Rose’s “Batwoman” debuted to a 0.5 rating/2 share and 1.8 million viewers. That 8 o’clock broadcast also went up against NFL competition — though not the playoffs.

Fox was first in ratings with a 6.4 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 23.1 million, according to preliminary numbers. The football game, which occupied the 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. time slots on the east coast, posted an 8.0 rating and 28.8 million total viewers. At 10, which is not a time slot Fox usually programs on a national basis, a special airing of new animated comedy “The Great North” put up a heavily inflated 2.6 rating and 8.4 million viewers A “Family Guy” episode at 9:30, which was also coded as a special due to the time slot, landed a 1.1 and 3.3 million viewers.

CBS was second in ratings with a 0.6 and in viewers with 6 million. “60 Minutes” at 7 drew a 1.1 and 10.2 million viewers. At 8, “NCIS: Los Angeles” had a 0.6 and 5.4 million viewers. “NCIS: New Orleans” at 9 got a 0.5 and 4.9 million viewers. A rerun followed.

ABC was third in ratings with a 0.4 and in viewers with 3 million. “America’s Funniest Home Videos” at 7 had a 0.5 and 4 million viewers. At 8, “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?” got a 0.4 and 2.7 million viewers. “Card Sharks” at 9 received a 0.3 and 1.9 million viewers. “The Rookie” at 10 picked things back up a bit — especially among older Americans — with a 0.4 and 3.6 million viewers.
