Seth MacFarlane’s Fox sci-fi dramedy “The Orville” premiered on Sunday to a 1.5 rating/5 share in adults 18-49 and 5.6 million viewers in Live+Same Day.
That’s up 56% in total viewers over the first season finale, and 67% in adults 18-49 for the same episode, but down from the 8.6 million viewers and 2.8 rating in adults 18-49 that tuned into the series premiere last year.
Even so, it’s a noted improvement on its first season averages. The show will relocate this week to its regular Thursday 9pm time slot later this week.
