There is so much good news now when it comes to Manifest, especially when it comes to the series’ performance in the ratings.
Today, NBC announced that in the full live+7 ratings for the series premiere, the show improved from 10.4 million live viewers to 18.4 million. Meanwhile, it also improved from a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic to a 4.2. When it comes to the show’s total-viewer gain, this is the second biggest one in the history of these measurements behind only the revival premiere for Roseanne. Meanwhile, the 18.4 million viewership total is the best series launch for NBC in 19 years, ever since the premiere of Third Watch back in 1999. That is so far back that there weren’t even official live+7 measurements back then that tracked DVR viewing.

Basically, what we think this means when it comes to Manifest is simply that there’s a very high chance that there will be either A) an extended episode order over at NBC and B) a great chance at a season 2 renewal. While the numbers (at least in live ratings) have slipped over the past two weeks, at the same we have ever reason in the world to think that this is a show that will be going strong for a good while.
At the moment, the only thing that may slow a show like Manifest down is if there is something that happens creatively that causes things to sputter out a little bit. It’s harder to keep an audience for a show like this. There’s a lot to keep track of week to week, and to go along with it, also a lot of different directions that this story could veer off in. It’s an experiment that may take some time in order to figure out and resolve.
