Constantine Ratings Up in Second Week


After a disappointing midseason premiere in its new 8 p.m. ET/PT time slot, NBC’s Constantine came back this week with a 0.9 rating and a 3 share for 3.48 million viewers.

Constantine saw a 13 percent improvement in both overall viewers and in the 18-49 age demographic over last week’s episode. Although these numbers are still not the amount of viewers the show had in its midseason finale before changing from its 10 p.m. ET/PT time slot, they’re getting close, taking fourth place behind CBS’ Undercover Boss, ABC’s Last Man Standing, and Fox’s World’s Funniest Fails.

The episode was based on the Hellblazer story “All His Engines” and featured longtime Justice League villain Felix Faust.

 “No secret Constantine took a hit at 8 p.m.” tweeted writer and executive producer Daniel Cerone after last week’s disappointing numbers. “Many possibilities for the future. All depend on viewers. Keep watching [and] sharing your passion.”

Fans have frequently asked about making the show available on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon, maybe even moving the show to another network like the CW, to which Cerone said it was “too early to discuss scenarios.”

“We’re partners with NBC till they say otherwise.”

Cerone did tell back when the episode order was at 13, leaving four scripts unproduced, that those stories would be released somehow.

Constantine airs Friday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
