Ratings: Longmire Ends Strong, Animal Practice Monkeys Around With 12.8 Million
Over the course of its freshman run, the modern-day Western averaged 4 million weekly viewers. And yes, it was long ago renewed for Season 2.
Elsewhere on Sunday, NBC’s sneak preview of Animal Practice — which cut into/delayed some of the Olympics’ closing ceremony — held onto 12.8 million total viewers while scoring a 4.1 rating in the 18-49 demo. That translates into a retention of nearly 50 percent of its Summer Games lead-in.
That said, Matthew Perry’s Go On last Wednesday night drew a better crowd, previewing to 16.1 million viewers and netting a 5.6 demo rating.
Animal Practice makes its official debut on Wednesday, Sept. 26, at 8/7c (opposite X Factor, Survivor, The Middle/The Neighbors and Arrow).
