Suggest that NBC could have made the right call when it gave Jake, Amy, Holt, Terry and the rest of Brooklyn Nine-Nine good-hearted cops (and also Hitchcock and Scully) another shot on TV, Entertainment Weekly reports that the show's rating for its Thursday night debut was the highest they have been for the past 2 years. Not high -6.6 million viewers and a 1.2-degree among adults 18-49, the show still shows after its competition, with Mamma who points nearly three times as many viewers in the same time slot over at CBS but still better than what it did during its last two seasons at Fox. (It also managed to beat its competition on its previous network, Orville but certainly not so much.)
Of course, the nineteen fine people have had a party of hype that helps them to reach this mini-milestone for the show's new network debut; NBC has made a full-court push behind the revived show since, picking it down between Dwayne Johnson's Titan Games and The Good Place and putting the star Andy Samberg forward and center on his various talk shows and price programs. (Not to say anything of the people were just trying to find out why we all lost our mind when Fox hit the series last year.) We keep our fingers crossed that the new viewers were fascinated enough by the show's variety Die Hard fetishes, pineapple hairs and gina masks to continue tuning in as the season progresses.
