Unforgettable: Premiere Ratings

Unforgettable TV show ratingsLast night, CBS debuted their newest crime drama, Unforgettable, starring Without a Trace veteran Poppy Montgomery.

Based on the fast affiliate numbers, the new TV series performed well. It won its timeslot with a 2.9 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic with 13.98 million viewers. That was a 16% increase in the demo over last year’s timeslot occupant, The Good Wife (2.5).

Unforgettable did lose a fair amount of the the NCIS: Los Angeles lead-in audience but that’s to be expected. We’ll have a better idea of the new show’s chances for the future once we look at the retention (how many people started watching the episode vs how many people finished), how many people come back for the second episode, and how the rest of the CBS schedule performs.

Right now, despite mixed and negative reviews, Unforgettable looks like a solid player.

UPDATE: You can now follow the weekly ratings.

What do you think? Did you watch Unforgettable last night? Will you return next week?

Slow start but grew on us to the point we will definitely watch it next week and see how it goes. Always enjoy Poppy Montgomery’s acting.

It was really good. Had a slight Lie to me feel to it. So I hope this one survives because I liked the pilot. And I was excited about it the whole summer. So I guess we’ll see.

I liked the show as well, I will be back next week. Usually, I always am the complete opposite of critics. They show that are suppose to be great. I don’t like or just don’t get, and the shows that are suppose to terrible. I love.

Gave up after 30 minutes. Bored and fell asleep. Nothing to hook me.

Having watched it, I thought many of the reviews cited in a previous post weer off-base, particularly the one that complained it wasn’t as funny (IIRC) as “Castle.” That’s a nonsensical review, comparing apples and oranges: CBS does fairly straight procedural dramas, while Castle is a dramedy that leans quite a bit toward the comedy end.

That aside, I enjoyed “Unforgettable,” but nothing about it really grabbed me. The mystery was fairly typical of a CBS drama, and the supporting characters seemed fairly colorless. (Then again, the point of the premier is to introduce the main character and her story.) I’ve liked Montgomery since “Without a Trace” and thought she did a good job here. For now, I’ll keep watching to see how it develops.

I enjoyed the show. Lots of twists and turns. I thought it was well written and I will watch again and again.
