LEGENDS OF TOMORROW Steady But FLASH Down In Season Premiere Viewership

There was a true drop the mic freestyle indictment of Donald Trump from Eminem on BET's Hip Hop Awards last night but only a couple of debuts on the Big 4 as the season has started to settle in.The Flash (1.0/4) and DC's Legends of Tomorrow (0.6/3) are back and Marshall Mathers' verbal hit on the former Celebrity Apprentice host is the water cooler moment, yet again NBC was the clear victor in primetime thanks to the heft ofThis Is Us (2.8/10).

NBC was first in ratings with a 2.1 rating/8 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 8.9 million, according to preliminary numbers.

At 9, "Legends of Tomorrow" started its new season with a 0.6/2 and 1.7 million viewers. At 10, "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders" received a 1.1/4 and 4.9 million viewers. "Legends of Tomorrow" was actually up a bit from its own prior season finale, but it fell to Fox's "The Mick" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" combo in the 9 p.m. hour. "NCIS: New Orleans" at 10 had a 1.1/4 and 9.5 million viewers. Both "The Mayor" (1.0, 3.4 million) and "Kevin Probably Saves the World" (0.8, 3.6 million) were down in both measures.
