Fall is the big time for broadcast, when NBC, CBS, ABC and Fox traditionally debut their most promising new dramas and comedies in hopes of kicking off the Nielsen season strong. And though there are far fewer freshman shows airing in the time of corona, the Big 4 have managed to roll out some new series (and a few acquired titles that are new to them) over the last few weeks.

Rank:  8        Show:  “Manhunt: Deadly Games”*    Net: CBS         Total Viewers: 1.570 million*”Manhunt: Deadly Games” previously aired on Spectrum Originals earlier this year. But either way, this tally is a death sentence.

Rank:  7       Show:  “Cosmos: Possible Worlds”*    Net: Fox         Total Viewers: 1.582 million*”Cosmos: Possible Worlds” first aired on Nat Geo Channel before making its way to broadcast television. Perhaps it should have stayed on cable. 

Rank:  6        Show:  “neXt”    Net: Fox        Total Viewers: 1.768 millionNah, next. 

Rank:  5       Show:  “Filthy Rich”    Net: Fox         Total Viewers: 2.871 millionOff to kind of a poor start. 

Rank:  4       Show:  “L.A’s Finest”*    Net: Fox         Total Viewers: 2.881 million*”L.A.’s Finest” Season 1 already ran on Spectrum, so these numbers are…fine.

Rank:  3       Show:  “Emergency Call”    Net: ABC         Total Viewers: 4.267 million  Not “9-1-1,” but this will do. 

Rank:  2      Show:  “I Can See Your Voice”    Net: Fox         Total Viewers: 4.457 million  We can see the “Masked Singer” bump this Ken Jeong-hosted competition is getting. 

Rank:  1       Show:  “The Weakest Link”    Net: NBC        Total Viewers: 6.067 million.   The strongest of the bunch — so far.
