24 Season 8 Premiere Ratings

Ratings for the first two hours of the premiere are in:

The return of “24” and a special preview of Fox’s new drama “Human Target” generated solid preliminary numbers Sunday night, though both earned less than previous benchmarks.

The two-hour “24” opener was seen by 11.4 million and enjoyed a hefty 3.8 rating, though that’s down 12% from last year. The action-drama slipped slightly from its first half-hour to its second, then basically held steady for the rest of the night (a crucial measurement for this heavily serialized show).
