The premiere of ABC’s new sitcom “United We Fall” scored decent numbers and topped Wednesday night in the process.
The Will Sasso and Christina Vidal comedy debuted to a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 and drew 4.2 million total viewers. While those numbers are lower than any of the network’s premieres for the fall season, they compare favorably to those put up by “The Baker and the Beauty,” which premiered to a 0.5 rating and 2.7 million viewers in April. That viewership tally is also higher than the debuts of “For Life,” “Emergence” and “Mixed-ish.” A second “United We Fall” episode followed with a 0.5 and 3.6 million viewers. Later on, a new episode of came in at a 0.3 rating and 1.4 million viewers, even on last week. Replays of “The Conners” and “American Housewife” sandwiched the new episodes with a 0.4 and a 0.3 respectively.
