Queen Latifah reigned over ratings once more thanks to her highly hailed return to network TV courtesy of the action series, ‘The Equalizer.’
Given the most vied time slot in television, the new show – a small screen adaptation of the 2014 Denzel Washington movie of the same name – dominated Sunday night viewership figures following the Super Bowl (February 7), scoring over 10 times the eyes of its nearest scripted competitors.
See what we mean inside:
Viewership = 20.4 million
“‘The Equalizer’ Tops 20 Million Viewers but Is Lowest-Rated Post-Super Bowl Show Ever. Queen Latifah’s take on “The Equalizer” landed 20.4 million total viewers immediately following CBS’ Super Bowl LV. That is 14% smaller than the post-Super Bowl audience for last year’s episode of “The Masked Singer” on Fox.
“The Equalizer,” which started at 10:39 p.m. ET, had a 5.1 rating among adults 18-49.”
Despite the contextual shortcoming, ‘Equalizer’ still finished the race as the most-watched program of the week – coming in second only to the big game itself.
