Fox debuted it’s new comedy block last night, and Andy Samberg’s new cop sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine did pretty well, pulling in six million viewers. It also was the most watched show by men under 50 on broadcast television last night. It followed the controversially racist Dads, which pulled in about 5.5 million, as did the season premiere of New Girl.
But it was New Girl that did best in the key demographic of 18- to 49-year-olds, scoring a 2.9 rating in comparison to Brooklyn’s 2.5 and Dads’ 2.1. Meanwhile, the premiere of The Mindy Project, which had made available online and on VOD early, pulled in 1.9 in the demo and 4 million overall.
