The 9-1-1 spin-off didn’t live up to its parent.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary live+same day key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.

FOX:  9-1-1: LONE STAR had a 0.9 timeslot premiere, down half a point from the last 9-1-1 episode.  PRODIGAL SON, airing for the first time since December 2, was steady at 0.7.

CW:  Airing for the first time since December 2, ALL AMERICAN was steady at 0.2, and the first BLACK LIGHTNING since December 9 was down 0.1 to 0.2.
