Tuesday Ratings: V Comes Back to Earth

The novelty of aliens on Earth was bound to wear off sometime soon. After a spectacular debut just seven days ago, V fell 27% in the prime demos. Although that’s the largest Week 2 drop for any scripted show this season, the resulting number should still be pleasing to ABC.

  • (20.1 million, 4.4/12 in 18-49) picked up 700,000.
  • (10.7 million, 3.8/10) lost 3.2 million.
  • (9.7 million, 3.8/10) gained 700,000.
  • (5.8 million, 2.3/6) slipped by 300,000.
