Sadly, but as expected, The Event’s return was a disappointment and registered similar numbers to (all-but-officially-cancelled) The Cape. According to the early numbers, both Event episodes scored a meager 1.4 rating in the all-important 18-49 demographic. That’s a loss of 26% from the last original episode in late November which registered a 1.9 rating.
These new episode ratings bring The Event’s season average down to a 2.1 rating and the average will keep falling as the weeks progress — unless the series starts performing like it did back in October. Doesn’t seem very likely, does it? There are 10 episodes left.
What do you think? Are last night’s ratings as good as they’re going to get? Do you think The Event has a chance?
