The Early Numbers are in for the 'Extant' Series Premiere


Extant, the new series from executive producer Steven Spielberg, premiered last night on CBS and, based on early numbers, it looks like it had a broader appeal with the older demographic.

The first episode of the highly anticipated sci-fi drama had an estimated 9.4 million viewers, with 1.7 rating for the 18-49 demographic.  Among the 25-54 demo, it earned a 2.4 rating.  There was a drop in younger viewers from the lead-in episode of Big Brother.

Of course, this being summer, many viewers DVR their programming - and CBS has a deal with Amazon Prime, which will release episodes of Extant four days after they premiere on the network.  It's likely the ratings will experience a bump when all those numbers are tallied.

Long story short - The premiere was respectable, but not quite as much as was expected.

(My own opinion - It was an intriguing premiere with a lot of potential.  I'll keep tuning in!)
