While not the same vote of confidence as a back nine order, the script commitments are good news for both freshman series which have had a hard time gaining traction in the ratings. Beauty And The Beast premiered to 3.2 million viewers and a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demo in live+same day, before suffering a steep ratings decline in week 2 when the show pulled in a mere 2 million total viewers and a 0.7 rating in the 18-49 demo in live+same day. Emily Owens, M.D. is also suffering from some rating woes. The series premiere to only 1.7 million viewers and a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo in live+same day. Though it should be noted that Emily Owens, M.D. was up against the second Presidential debate which is sure to have deflated its performance somewhat.
