While it bested its competitors ABC and NBC within the hour in viewership and all key demos, the episode hit a series-low, to-date, among those key figures.

ABC led prime time among adults 18-34 (1.0/5) and shared leadership with CBS for adults 18-49 (1.4 rating), although ABC earned the slight edge over CBS in adults 18-49 share (6 vs. 5).
