- This was a light week for premieres, with my table only containing sophomore returnees Chasing Life (0.28) on ABC Family and Dominion (0.26) on Syfy. Both were down by roughly half from last week's summer premieres. (Last summer, Chasing Life had a better lead-in from Pretty Little Liars compared with this year's The Fosters. And Dominion now airs after Smackdown! on Syfy.)
- To revisit last week's potentially promising newbies: AMC's Humans is not quite so promising anymore, plummeting 40% to a 0.32 in week two. But USA's Mr. Robot (0.59) packed on a few more tenths in week three, officially putting it ahead of all USA newbie data points in the last calendar year.
- One thing we will probably notice from weeks of doing this is that the same-day numbers are low enough that some crazy percent swings can happen, even if in raw numbers it's only like a tenth of a point. Usually I would say to give these things at least another week to see if they hold up. A couple particularly noticeable ones this week were FX's Tyrant (0.43) and Syfy's Defiance (0.36), both of which surged to about a tenth ahead of their previous season highs. USA's previously struggling Complications (0.46) also grew big to a new series high.
- Thanks for all of your other feedback last week; more tweaks/additions are on the way, but I put off most of it for this week to get the sortable thing done.
