The Rookie News — The move to a night did not impact The Rookie. The sophomore season premiered to a 0.7 in the 18-45 demo and captured 4.1 million viewers. This is on par with the season one finale in April.
It was not ABC’s most watched show, however; Celebrity Family Feud brought in 5.3 million viewers with 1.0 in the 18-45 demo. Shark Tank had a 0.7 rating with 3.82 million viewers.
ABC as a whole was in third place with NBC, bolstered by football, in first.
The Rookie airs Sundays on ABC at 10 p.m.
