Why ‘Parasite’ Studio CJ Entertainment Is Betting Big on Skydance

When it comes to broadcast TV, winter is typically no fall — but a few of this year’s new midseason shows could have made the cut for an earlier start, ratings-wise. TheWrap has ranked all of 2020’s midseason series premieres — so far — by their “live” total-viewer tallies. Spinoffs of Fox’s “9-1-1” and CBS’ “FBI” had impressive starts, The CW’s “Riverdale” offshoot did not. Scroll through our gallery for the Nielsen returns for the 12 midseason shows that have debuted this season and check back for updates as more premiere. Least-watched is first, most-watched is last. Readers can find our Fall TV version of these rankings here here.
