The premiere of the NBC News production “The Wanted” was the least watched program on broadcast TV last night, drawing just 2.99M Total Viewers. The terrorist-hunting show had a 0.8 rating in A18-49 viewers, finishing a distant fourth at 10pm even behind Spanish-language network Univision.
By comparison, the #1 show on cable news, The O’Reilly Factor, regularly draws more Total Viewers than “The Wanted” did last night. O’Reilly drew 3.0M Total Viewers last Monday, 3.2M last Thursday. (Last night’s cable news ratings will be out later this afternoon.)
