CBS has given full season “back nine” orders to television’s top three freshman comedies — The Crazy Ones, The Millers and Mom. The Crazy Ones is the season’s #1 new comedy in viewers (13.71m), adults 18-49 (3.6/10) and adults 25-54 (4.8/12). It wins its Thursday (9:00-9:30 PM, ET/PT) time period in viewers.
THE Millers sweeps its Thursday (8:30-9:00 PM, ET/PT) time period in viewers and key demographics and ranks as the #2 comedy in viewers (12.41m), adults 18-49 (3.2/09) and adults 25-54 (4.3/11). Last night, The Millers retained 97% of its premiere rating in adults 18-49, 98% in adults 25-54 and 93% of its premiere audience, the best of any new series in these measures.
Mom is the third-most-watched new comedy, averaging 7.98 million viewers, delivering a 2.6/06 in adults 18-49 and 3.2/07 in adults 25-54 airing in the highly competitive Monday (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) time period.
