Great news, guys! Midnight, Texas had a great start ratings-wise. It has been labeled as the highest-rated drama series premiere this summer. Congratulations to the entire cast and crew!
DEADLINE – NBC made a seamless transition in the Monday 10 PM slot, with new supernatural drama Midnight, Texas drawing a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and 3.6 million viewers for its premiere, on par with the Season 2 debut (and Season 2 average) in the hour for the unscripted Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge earlier this summer.
Midnight, Texas easily topped the 10 PM preview of new ABC drama Somewhere Between, which debuted to a lackluster 0.6 in the demo and 3.07 million viewers, just a tenth higher in 18-49 than the premiere of the short-lived Still Star-Crossed in the time period earlier this summer.
In Live+same day adults 18-49, Midnight, Texas ranks as the highest rated drama series premiere — new or returning — this summer and ties NBC’s recently canceled The Carmichael Show as the highest rated scripted summer series opener this summer.
