We did not necessarily expect The CW’s “Crazy Ex Girlfriend” to deliver crazy-good ratings Monday, but somebody out there probably thought it was going to be doing a little bit better than this. Overall, the series premiere drew just a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic last night, which is far from stunning and, unless there is improvement, probably will not get the West Covina set show a back nine. The CW has so many other shows coming up, after all, whether it be “Legends of Tomorrow,” “Containment,” or season 3 of “The 100.”
The news was marginally better for “Jane the Virgin,” which retained the 0.4 rating that it had for most of the second season. That show has never been highly-rated, but critical acclaim for both it and star Gina Rodriguez will probably keep it around for a while.
On the slightly more positive end, there were no further declines for “Gotham” (1.5) or “Minority Report” (0.7) from the weeks before, though there’s still not too much else positive to say about the latter, given that it has seen its episode order trimmed to 10. This is about as close to a cancellation as Fox seems willing to give it.
Meanwhile, “Blindspot” (2.5) still has to be celebrating getting some more consistent ratings on Monday night. It is virtually even with the last new episode, and with it already having a full-season order, it may now be focusing a little bit more of its energy on getting a second season a little later this season. If this rating holds until the new year, we feel like a season 2 is assured. NBC needs a scripted hit to be proud of.
