Talk about "I'll be back." Fox's
Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles on Sunday night premiered to 18.3 million total viewers and was broadcast television's highest-rated scripted series debut in three years among adults 18-49 and adults 18-34. (Among total viewers it was the highest in almost two years.) It was also Fox's highest-rated scripted series debut in over seven years among 18- to 49-year-olds (since
Dark Angel, Oct. 2000) and in eight years in total viewers.
On the other end of the time continuum, CBS' Comanche Moon averaged 15.75 million viewers on its first of three nights, the largest audience for any network TV-movie in more than two years.
Lastly, lest anyone be rid the memory of the pathetic Globes news conference, NBC's Billy Bushy telecast was awarded with a mere 5.8 million viewers.
