V the biggest freshman hit of the year?

It’s kinda looking that way.

In initial overnight ratings V, a remake of a 1980’s sci-fi series about an alien invasion, hit a 5 rating in the 18-49 year old age group that networks prize (because advertisers pay the most to reach it), the best number of any drama or comedy series introduced this fall.

The show also had about 14 million viewers, which was below the 18.7 million that the CBS drama NCIS LA attracted for its premiere. But that show, a spin-off, benefited from following its progenitor, NCIS, on Tuesday nights. The V performance was more impressive because as an 8pm show it pulled in the audience all on its own.

Way to go V. While I thought the pilot was a little uneven, I think the show has a lot of potential. Hopefully the problems behind the scenes (they just yanked their first showrunner) won’t impact the rest of the show’s run in a negative way.
