Big Sky may not be the hit ABC was hoping for.
The series returned on Tuesday after a lengthy hiatus, and the numbers were down considerably.
Big Sky Season 1 Episode 10 had 3.5 million viewers and a 0.5 rating in the demo, while Big Sky Season 1 Episode 11 followed with 3.2 million viewers and a 0.4 rating.
The winter finale earlier this year was considerably stronger at 4.1 million viewers and a 0.7 rating.
The series has proven to be a big hit with delayed viewing factored in, but with the first mystery essentially wrapped up, it looks like viewers are not impressed with the Yellowstone-like approach to the second.
The show didn’t exactly get a strong lead-in, either. Pooch Perfect drew 2.4 million viewers and a 0.4 rating.
Over on FOX, The Resident (3.4 million/0.5 rating) tied series lows in its midseason premiere.
Prodigal Son (2 million/0.4 rating), meanwhile, returned on a steady note but the numbers are just not here for the serial killer drama.
Young Rock (2.8 million/0.6 rating) on NBC perked up, while Kenan (2 million/0.4 rating), This Is Us (4.6 million/0.7 rating), and New Amsterdam (3.3 million/0.4 rating) were all steady week-to-week.
The Flash (0.9 million/0.3 rating) and Supergirl (0.6 million/0.1 rating) each dipped in total viewers, but held steady in the 18-49 demo.
The top draw of the night in total viewers was an NCIS encore, which had 5.4 million viewers.
