ABC’s The Rookie held steady in week three, keeping with the previous week’s 0.8 rating with 4.46m viewers. So any argument that the ratings from the second episode were impacted by the World Series is baseless.
The show is off November 6 because of local and network coverage of the mid-term elections.
There is no The Rookie data for Live +3 that is publicly available. It is safe to say most people are watching the show live and its extended viewing data is not registering.
Not necessarily a bad thing in terms of whether or not the show sticks around. It is too early to tell.
