'Melrose Place' ratings snapshot: Disappointing

Posted on

melrose-place-ratings_lIt might be time to speed up those Heather Locklear negotiations. The ratings for last night’s Melrose Place premiere are in and, well, they’re not great. The mega-hyped reboot averaged a disappointing 2.3 million viewers. The show fared slightly better among its core young adult audience, placing second in the 9 pm hour. Also of positive note: Melrose was the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter last night for about an hour! (Hey, you take the wins where you can get ’em).

The second season premiere of 90210 actually fared better with 2.6 million viewers, its highest viewer tally since last winter.

Did you watch either? Thoughts? (Melrose actually gets a lot better next week. Ditto 90210.)
