Yas! Yass! And more Yasss!
I am super excited to report FOX has renewed their Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk drama, “9-1-1,” for a second season after airing only TWO episodes!
The series, starring Angela Bassett, Connie Britton and Peter Krause, takes you on an emotional roller coaster as it dives into the high pressure and stressful experiences of a 9-1-1 operator, firefighters, paramedics and police officers as they face some of the most shocking and frightening situations with one goal: save lives.
The debut episode has drawn more than 15 million viewers in seven-day multi-platform viewing for Fox’s largest premiere since Empire in 2015, excluding post-Super Bowl premieres, according to the network. In Nielsen Live + 7, the show drew 10.7 million viewers, up 57% from L+SD. On social media, 9-1-1 is this season’s No. 1 new broadcast drama series and the most engaging new broadcast program on YouTube, with more than nine million views.
In week two, 9-1-1 delivered a three-day multi-platform audience of 11.6 million viewers, including its encore. The show posted a 2.5/9 L3 rating in adults 18-49, up 67% vs. L+SD, tying Modern Family as the night’s No. 1 program for the second consecutive week, while also winning the 9-10 PM hour.
