For the second week in a row, ratings for NBC’s new Tuesday night comedies Go On and The New Normal continue to slip in the ratings
Go On has seen a steep decline since The Voice has been on its hiatus. During the fall, Go On averaged a strong 9 million viewers a week and had a steady 18-49 demo rating post The Voice, which help give Go On the title of TV’s highest rated new comedy of the fall. That may not be the case anymore.
Last night’s Go On only drew 4 million viewers and a 1.3 in the 18-49 demo – a series low.
The last 2 airings of Go On shows that the Matthew Perry starring comedy isn’t as popular as NBC may have thought originally. It also shows the ratings strength of The Voice, how much impact The Voice has on Tuesday night ratings, and the void The Voice leaves when it’s not on the schedule.
The rating levels of both of these first year comedies are getting closer in line with NBC Thursday night comedies, which isn’t a good sign at all. it will be interesting to see how Wednesday night comedies Whitney and Guys With Kids do this week, to see which new NBC comedy hour has a greater chance of renewals at the end of the season
