Compared to season 53, that’s down by 13% in the demo and down by 12% in viewership in the live + same day ratings (including DVR playback through 3:00 AM). While these numbers don’t include further delayed or streaming viewing, they are a very good indicator of how a show is performing, especially when compared to others on the same channel.
