Ratings: ‘The Four’ Season 2 Premiere Bombs

Published: Monday 11th Jun 2018 by Rashad

With ABC’s revival of ‘American Idol’ proving itself quite the consistent ratings winner thanks to its talented hopefuls, revamped format, and judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie, FOX – the show’s former network home – re-entered the reality-singing competition race to face off against the likes of ‘Idol’ and ‘The Voice’ by birthing ‘The Four.’

The series, with a judges’ panel featuring DJ Khaled, Meghan Trainor, and P. Diddy (alongside hostess Fergie), was a consistent ratings draw for the network despite routinely pulling in less than half the viewers of its contemporaries.

While its season 1 finale did manage to court more eyes than its premiere, just four months later its season 2’s premiere (June 7) reported a serious plunge.  See the numbers inside:

‘The Four: Battle for Stardom’ on Thursday night opened Season 2 with just 2.2 million total viewers and a 0.7 demo rating, down a whole bunch from both its freshman premiere (3.8 mil/1.2, airing in-season in January) and its previous lows (3.3 mil/1.1), while only delivering a little more than half of its February finale numbers (4 mil/1.3).

    Lmfao because you all understand tv and this info.

    I don’t but those numbers are way too close to say it bombed.

    That said they should have had a longer season and renewed for January 2019

      so wait you don’t think pulling in HALF of already bad numbers is a bomb?

      • MusicLife June 12, 2018

        It’s not half. Unless their numbers aren’t wrong. 2.2 doubles is 4.4. Didn’t they say 3.8.

    The show has a genius concept and the results are immediate which adds to the suspense. My thought is the program would feel more credible with a different panel of judges who show less bias and more expertise. The season should be extended and they need to figure out a way to switch to a live format with maybe four new contestants ready to sing each night.

    If the Season 1 Finale was in February why the hell is there already a Season 2 in June is the real question. That’s extremely rushed and unnecessary the show should’ve returned in the Fall. Either way I’d never watch that Revamped American Idol.
