The Bachelor: Where Are They Now? topped the hour with a scant 7.7 million total viewers, but enough to edge out the debut of Canterbury's Law. The legal drama delivered 7.6 mil, qualifying as Fox's lowest-rated series premiere in the time period, ever. ( MediaWeek's Marc Berman makes a great comparison, noting that a House repeat did 9.7 mil in the time slot a year ago.) An Old Christine (7.5 mil) improved considerably upon last week's Welcome to the Captain.
Trailing Deal or No Deal (11.6 mil) and CBS' old Men/new Old Christine combo, New Amsterdam drew 8.8 mil, a 17 percent drop from its most recent (Thursday) broadcast. October Road's two-hour season finale averaged 4.7 mil - or 50K for every inch of guest star Stacy Keibler's two legs - dropping 600 thou. Girlicious did a typical 1.7 mil.
Behind a CSI: Miami retread, Medium was up just a hair, to 9.2 mil.
