It was a very solid opening for Touch. The series had the second-best premiere of the season on any network (behind Once Upon a Time) and the third best debut of FOX’s current season, behind only by New Girl and Napoleon Dynamite.
FOX has used Idol to launch several new shows over the years — Glee, Human Target, Lie to Me, and Fringe — but Touch retained a higher percentage than any of them.
Will the numbers hold up? We’ll have to wait until the second episode airs on Monday, March 19th to find out.
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.
What do you think? Do you like the Touch TV series? Do you hope that it’s cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Bring back touch, it was such a great show, so different from what’s on now. You always get rid of the great shows and keep the crap. Bring it back!!!!! Jake is such a brilliant actor.
I wish they would bring back touch but the reason it was cancelled was that Keiffer is going back to 24. They had ended 24 in 2011 and were going to try to make a movie out of it but it did not go so well. Now they are bringing it back and Keiffer is going back to being Jack Bauer. I will miss touch but I am going to enjoy the new 24 as well. I really wish he could do both!
I’m trying to watch the series now on Netflix, and for the life of me I don’t see the appeal of it, struggling to watch the other 8 episodes of Touch, how could this survive and Terra Nova with the ratings it had and yet Tera Nova Fail is beyond me.
you took this show off because of money. this show was more then money. it was the interaction of the human race. how we as human have to learn to accept the differences and learn to live with then. how we all are connected to each other. this is a show that gave hope and chance a reason to live. please bring this show back.
I like the series very much. It has a magical quality, a spiritual message. It is not your typical action film and does not need to be totall realistic. Beautiful photography, cross-cultural stories. I hope it contines past second season.
