GCB got off to an OK start for ABC.

The series opened to 7.6 million viewers and a 2.2 rating in the adults 18-to-49 demo — a marked improvement over predecessor Pan Am's final outing (3.77 million, 1.2), but well below the jet-setting show's series premiere (11 million, 3.1).

Still, GCB's was the second-highest rated show in the 10 o'clock hour, helping ABC secure the win in the demo. Once Upon a Time (10.6 million, 3.4) and Desperate Housewives (8.2 million, 2.5) were both up from their previous new episodes two weeks ago.
