24: Legacy‘s ratings have dropped yet again this week, falling to a new series low – 3.80 million viewers (down by roughly 180,000) and a 0.9 in the important 18-49 demographic.
It’s safe to say that 24: Legacy is on life support. The show continues to bleed viewers weekly and is now fractional in the 18-49 demographic. It’s just barely outperforming FOX’s other Monday show APB which is a new (and likely far cheaper to produce) series that received barely any promotion in comparison.
Yesterday Fox Television Group Chairman and CEO Dana Walden admitted that 24: Legacy failed to live up to their expectations ratings-wise and said “we’re just going to have to see how our pilots come in, how it continues to perform and weigh all of the information we have in May.” Not exactly a great vote of confidence for the show.
Simply put, the more data that comes in, the worse it looks for Legacy.
Updated Live+7 Ratings
24: Legacy‘s sixth episode grew from a 0.9 to a 1.6 demo in Live+7 delayed viewing. Total viewers went up from 3.697 million to 5.791 million after seven days of delayed viewing, an increase of 57%.
For comparison, Kiefer Sutherland’s new series Designated Survivor got 11.694 million total viewers in Live+7 this same week – it’s performing twice as well as 24: Legacy in the ratings. (source)
