‘Sleepy Hollow’ premiere and ‘Under the Dome’ season 1 finale strong in ratings

Both Sleepy Hollow and Bones went up a tenth in the finals to a 3.5 and 2.3 18-49 rating, respectively. Sleepy Hollow now stands as Fox’s highest-rated fall drama premiere in 7 years, since Standoff in 2006.

sleepy-hollow-tv-show-bannerAccording to preliminary numbers from Nielsen, the series premiere drew more than 10 million viewers and more than doubled ratings from last year’s debut of Mob Doctor in the same time slot.

CBS’ Under the Dome’s season closer rose 33% from last week to a 2.8 rating and brought in 11.8 million viewers.

ABC’s Dancing With the Stars improved on its September 2012 premiere numbers, when the show went up against NBC’s The Voice. This time around it got a one-week jump on NBC’s singing competition show and saw its demo average for the two-hour opener hit 3.2/9, compared to 2.5/7 last fall, and 16.2 million in total viewers, up from last year’s 14.1 million.

Like The Following and Revolution, Sleepy Hollow will likely ad as much as 50% or more to its live ratings within the 7-day playback window.

Fox won the night overall in adults 18-49 with a 2.8/8. ABC led in total viewers with 13.4 million.

The rest of the pack in 18-49: (ABC: 2.6/7; CBS: 1.9/5; NBC: 1.2/3)

Total viewers: (Fox: 8.8 million; CBS: 7.2 million; NBC: 3.4 million)
