24: Legacy continues its downward spiral in the ratings department with last night’s episode getting just 4.40 million overall viewers and 1.0 in the 18-49 demographic.
Simply put, these are not good numbers. Legacy has yet to show any signs of ratings stability, and has actually suffered an even bigger decline this week. It has already dropped below FOX’s previous Mondays at 8:00pm time slot occupant Gotham. It’s also providing a weak lead-in to FOX’s new crime series APB. Even the delayed viewing figures are far below many other broadcast dramas. There’s just no positive way to spin these numbers.
It will be interesting to see if the ratings tick upwards at all with the imminent return of Tony Almeida, but at this point things aren’t looking good.
