- As a result, The Good Doctor is coming off the bench early — Monday, February 28th — with the second half of its current fifth season. The medical drama was initially pegged to return in April after Promised Land wrapped its inaugural 10-episode run.
- Across its first four episodes, Promised Land has posted a mere 0.2 demo rating each week, while its audience has steadily declined from 1.9 million to 1.5 million total viewers. With Live+7 DVR playback factored in, its first episodes averaged 2.9 mil and a 0.3, besting only fellow freshman Queens in total audience and placing last in the demo among all ABC dramas.
