daniel sauli adam goldberg nyc 22 premiere ratings TV ratings: 'NYC 22' has a so so premiere as CBS wins a quiet SundayFast National ratings for Sunday, April 15, 2012

The series premiere of “NYC 22” pulled in a decent number of viewers for CBS Sunday, but its adults 18-49 rating (1.5) was pretty soft and well below what “CSI: Miami” averaged in the same timeslot earlier in the season.

On the upside for the new show — kind of, anyway — is the fact that nothing on broadcast TV Sunday drew all that well among the coveted 18-49 demographic. None of the four networks even broke the 2.0 mark in primetime.

CBS led the night’s overall race with 9.7 million viewers and a 6.2 rating/10 share in households. NBC (6.5 million, 4.2/7) came in second. ABC scored 4.8 million viewers and a 3.0/5 to finish third, beating out FOX (3.8 million, 2.2/4).

CBS also topped the 18-49 demo, albeit with just a 1.8 rating. FOX (1.7) and NBC (1.6) were close behind, and ABC brought up the rear with a 1.3.
