One of the last new shows to debut this fall got off to a soft start Friday night.
NBC’s Constantine opened to 4.3 million viewers and a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49. While hardly hellish, the DC Comics supernatural drama series was edged out in the 10 p.m. hour by ABC’s 20/20. Plus, last year’s Dracula was 29 percent higher. Constantine‘s lead-in, the fourth season premiere of Grimm, had 5.3 million and a 1.5 rating, down 17 percent from last year.
The NBC shows faced tougher-than-usual competition from Fox, which had Game 3 of the World Series.
