Was The Debut Of Deception Successful?
- 5.6 million total viewers
- Won its time slot among 18-49 year old viewers
While it beat out its ABC network competitor Castle for the target age group in the time slot, it did not beat the show in eyeballs. ABC’s Castle had 8.6 million total viewers (stats from Zap2it). Keep in mind that this show is established and returning from a break in its 5th season.
With no other real competition, Deception landed comfortably in 2nd place.
- The show has been on demand for a week
- The show has been available to watch online for since mid-December 2012
ABC’s Scandal debuted to 7.4 million viewers last year. Its hovered around this number each week since, yet received a full second season.
Last night NBC’s well established reality program The Biggest Loser debuted the 2nd part of its season opener right before Deception and had only 6.34 million viewers.
Conclusion: Deception – Not too bad for a new show trying to find its footing.
