UPDATED: Facing repeats of Scandal and Elementary, Hannibal grew in Week 2 with 4.4 million viewers and a 1.7 demo rating (vs 4.3 million and 1.6 for last week’s premiere.)
In today’s ultra-competitive TV landscape, that’s a win for NBC.
Over on Fox, a strengthening American Idol (12.7 million/3.1) helped Glee‘s school shooting-themed episode (6.8 million/2.4) surge 20 percent percent in viewers and 18-49 compared to its last original outing three weeks ago.
NBC, meanwhile, saw The Office and Community (puppets make everything better!) rise 6 and 10 percent respectively, while Parks and Recreation and Go On were flat.
ABC (with the exception of Wife Swap), CBS and The CW were in repeat mode.
