The series and season premieres press on as we get further into September starting with the debut of The Politician (No. 1). Ryan Murphy’s quirky Netflix dramedy surpasses a multitude of network premieres; earning a rise ratio of 99.9% following its eight episode release on the 27th. Next, the series premiere of FOX crime drama, Prodigal Son, receives strong No. 2 placement while the seventeenth season of competition series, The Voice (No. 3), rounds out the top 3.
Meanwhile, network comebacks continue to flourish with family dramas, A Million Little Things (No. 6) and This Is Us (No. 9), as they find report placement after their respective season premieres. Emergency series also gain traction as hit procedurals, FBI (No. 4) and 9-1-1 (No. 5), and rival medical dramas, New Amsterdam (No. 7) and The Resident (No. 10), finally return to our screens.
With Season 3 of Big Mouth and the premiere of Raising Dion on the way, will Netflix dominate next week? Or will The CW break-in with action series, Batwoman and Supergirl? We will tell all on October 7th!
