For Man Up!, ratings are down!
The half-hour ABC sitcom rousted 6.75 million viewers — down about 13 percent from the 7.80 million who tuned in last week's debut. And it sank among the industry-prized 18-to-49-year-old demographic, posting a 1.9 rating vs. 2.4 a week ago.
Last Man Standing, which precedes it at 8/7c, stumbled a tad, enticing 9.82 million people and notching a 2.8 demo rating for Week 3 — a decline of 3 percent. (That's much better than last week's 21 percent drop. Some 10.20 million tuned for Week 2 of Tim Allen's new sitcom, which debuted to 12.95 million; it also garnered a 3.0 demo rating, down from 3.5 for its premiere.)
