An NBC drama series had a less than spectacular night as the show rolled out the premiere of its third and final season. Variety reports that Sunday’s season premiere of “Shades of Blue” hit a series low.
“Airing at 10 p.m., ‘Shades of Blue’s’ Season 3 opener averaged a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.5 million viewers,” Variety reports. “That is down nearly 40% in the demo and just over 30% in total viewers from the Season 2 premiere. In fairness, Season 2 debuted in the spring of last year, when more people are typically watching TV. Still, in addition to hitting a new series low, the Jennifer Lopez-led cop drama finished second in its timeslot against ABC’s ‘To Tell the Truth.’”
NBC announced back in April that that it would be wrapping the series after season three.
