Made in Jersey follows a young female lawyer (Janet Montgomery) from a working-class New Jersey household. She uses her street smarts at an upscale New York law firm and ends up taking her bosses and co-workers by surprise. The cast also includes Kyle MacLachlan, Felix Solis, Stephanie March, Toni Trucks, Donna Murphy, Erin Cummings, Megalyn Echikunwoke, Drew Beasley, and Alexandra Socha.
Per the fast affiliate ratings, the series premiere of Made in Jersey drew a 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 7.74 million total viewers. It was tied for second place in the timeslot with a rerun of Last Resort on ABC and the season debut of Fringe on FOX.
A Gifted Man never went as low as a 1.1 in the demo and only briefly went that low in viewership. Obviously, this was not a good start for Made in Jersey. Could the numbers improve? We’ll have to wait and see.
