Fox’s 9-1-1 is bringing the heat and the views with season 2 premiere


Looks like the cast of 9-1-1 isn’t the only thing bringing the heat this season.

9-1-1 is off to one hell of a start after it’s two-night season 2 premiere. We’ve got love, an earthquake, and a new character to crush over, and it’s safe to say viewers are tuning in. There was a huge boost in the Live+3 ratings with over 13.8 million viewers.

This marks a new series best for 9-1-1 and is up 41% from Live+same day which hit about 9.8 million viewers. Given the crazy pace of the premiere and the success of the first season, it comes as no shock that the series soared to new heights.

9-1-1 also accomplished a series high in the demographic of 18-49 with a 3.4/14 rating in Live+3, which was about 26% higher than season one’s debut. There was also a 31% bump in multi-platform viewers from its series premiere and was broadcast’s highest-rated drama since the March This Is Us finale, according to Deadline.
