The sitcom debuted to a very healthy 4.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.28 million viewers. It won its timeslot and built on the season premiere of its Glee lead-in by 20%. Also, Deschanel and company retained and actually built on their audience as the half-hour progressed. This was a very good premiere.


Note: These ratings are collected by the Nielsen company and are the final national numbers. These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings and are reported on by most other outlets. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.

I thought this show was terrible when it first aired. It just wasn’t funny. However for me it seemed to pick up after episode 3 or 4 so I continued to watch it. Its not great but I am giving it a chance as I want to see where it goes but it still has to improve in my opinion to maintain my attention.

I stopped watching the show after the third episode. I have a very good sense of humor and I watch many scripted shows, but this show is not funny at all. I was actually surprised when they ordered a full season.

I really like the show, but it is interesting how the way advertisers look at demo numbers make this show a hit, and a show like Unforgettable not as much of a hit even though Unforgettable has almost twice as many viewers.

Zooey Deschanel is very sweet and loveable and the show as a whole seems to work. So if FOX has any sense they’ll keep it.

Craig November 2, 2011 at 5:23 pm

I actually find Raising Hope more entertaining, but I am not surprised that the audience is following Zooey and then switching away from Raising Hope.

This show is hilarious! I think it’ll make it.

We rally liking the show…Jess is great, as are the guys….but Jess needs to lose the extensions/cascading hair…we’re generally getting tired with the ‘overkill’ of extension hair….it’s ‘all over the place’…would rather see the actor/actress than all that fake ( and we know it’s fake) hair…..best possibility of a ‘make-it’ show for a while though….
