Last night, ABC unveiled their much-anticipated new TV show, No Ordinary Family. Were the ratings heroic or will the family and their adventures soon be cancelled?
No Ordinary Family revolves around the Powell family who, while on vacation, crash into Amazon River and gain special abilities. The new show stars Michael Chiklis, Julie Benz, Autumn Reeser, Jimmy Bennett, Kay Panabaker, Tate Donovan, Christina Chang, and Romany Malco.
According to the Nielsen ratings, No Ordinary Family attracted a 3.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 10.69 million total viewers. For the timeslot, it ranked in second place in both categories.
Considering that it aired opposite a hit show like NCIS: Los Angeles (which had a 3.7 rating and 16.51 million viewers), No Ordinary Family had a very good debut.
We’ll have a better idea about the show’s future in the next couple weeks as we see if the show’s audience grows or significantly shrinks. For now it looks to be in really good shape.
So, what do you think? Did you tune in to see the first episode of No Ordinary Family?
Will you watch next week? Cancel or keep it?

I was disappointed when I watched it last night and then I seen they were putting a rerun of a rerun of a rerun in its place starting next Monday. Keep it on and give them a fair chance. I love the whole cast on the show! Why do you guy’s always cancel something that may have a good chance in gathering a large following. They didn’t even advertise that that was the final… Read more »

I think that it should stay on because it is a family show and how many show that have families that are together and they are, NO ORDINARY FAMILY. Keep them coming, and I’ll keep tunning in.
Hello pleasr keep no ordinary family on the air i’ve nevrr use to watch abc family since the day show come in I always make dure tune in every tursday to watch each episode. If one I missed one i go online and watch it.
In my opinion “no ordinary family” is the best show that ABC has come up with in a long time, I can’t get enough of it. Please don’t cancel this show.
i did tune in to see the first episode and everyone after it!!!!!!!!!!!
ABC please keep No Ordinary Family on your schedule. For years I have passed on ABC shows for those on other stations. This show has given me something to truly look forward to week after week. A show the whole family – no matter how young or old the family members are – can watch. Keep it alive!!
