J.J. Abrams' new spy series is underperforming early in its run.
October 7, 2010
NBC's freshman spy series Undercovers has been steadily falling in the ratings since its debut - not a good sign for the new show. In its 8:00pm time slot on October 6, Undercovers earned a 1.5/4 rating in the Adults 18-49 demo. That number is a tick down from last week's airing, which itself saw a 20% drop from the premiere.
These numbers would appear to put the show in danger of cancellation, especially if the drops continue in the coming weeks. For comparison's sake, on the same night last year, the now cancelled Mercy pulled a 1.9 in the hour, while the network averaged a 1.7 in the time slot last season.
