Suburgatory scared up 9.81 million souls, according to preliminary Nielsen info.
The new ABC sitcom at 8:30/7:30c grabbed a 3.3 rating among 18-to-49-year-olds, marking a 27 percent improvement over last year's tenant of the time slot, Better With You. The comedy, starring Jane Levy and Jeremy Sisto, follows The Middle, which was down to 8.55 million from last week's 9.35 million. Similarly, most of Wednesday's ratings were lower than last week, though to varying degrees.
Kind of enjoyed this one. A lot.
We're not sure if it Suburgatory's opening shot of the Talbots-bedecked mom rapping at a red light, the high school glee-club joke (complete with dork in a wheelchair and cheerleader uniforms) or the not-too-snarky wit of Jane Levy's upended teen, but this comedy about the Altmans, a dad-daughter duo who move from Manhattan to the 'burbs is more fun than a frapp-filled day at the mall with a cosmetically enhanced mom.

Will you tune in for more Real Housewives mockery, short shorts and leopard-print everything? Or do you want to ...
Crime procedurals on TV are a dime a dozen (though often much more profitable), but BBC America's Luther is one in a million. Making Criminal Minds look like a romp in Disneyland, this twisted walk on the dark side earned an Emmy nomination this year for its powerful star, Idris Elba (The Wire), for good reason. Few things are juicier than letting an actor wallow in the most damaged corners of the soul.
And right away, as Luther returns for a second season (10/9c) comprised of two two-part thrillers airing over four weeks, we can see that John Luther's notoriety as London's most volatile and unstable detective is intact. Still grieving the death of his ex-wife (at the hands of a former colleague), Luther returns ...
Cheryl Hines, Suburgatory
As Suburgatory's Dallas, Cheryl Hines is a big-haired, energy drink-chugging, slang-slinging suburban mom straight out of Bravo's Real Housewives. She just wants the best for her daughter, Dalia, and so she buys her too-short shorts and even tighter tops, all of which stuns city girl Tessa, their new neighbor who, with her single dad, George, just moved into town from Manhattan. It's through Tessa's horrified eyes — and uber snarky narration — that viewers are introduced to a version of suburbia ripe for the mocking, where pastel sweatsuits and frozen lattes are still the uniform and meal of choice for moms and every girl in high school is recovering from a nose job.
In the first episode of the ABC comedy (premiering Wednesday at 8:30/7:30c), Dallas offers to help ease Tessa (Jane Levy) into her new life by taking her to the mall where Dallas can help her out of her "lesbian boots" and into "a nice heterosexual dress shoe."
