Bad News: Constantine Ratings Lower With New Time

NBC recently moved Constantine from a Friday 10pm ET time slot to an 8pm ET time slot in hopes the ratings would improve.

Constantine returned this part Friday, and the bad news is the ratings went down.

More than likely the reason for the drop is Constantine didn't get the lead in from Grimm, which it usually followed.

However, Grimm's numbers were down as well.

Constantine's ratings for Friday at 8pm earned a 0.8 among adults 18-49, which is down from the 1.0 from the previously aired episode (December 12th) at 10pm ET.

The episode saw 3.08 million viewers tune in, down from the previous episode's 3.3 million.

Executives at NBC recently hinted if the ratings didn't improve for Constantine, the show would be cancelled.

The execs cited too many comic book shows on TV and that Constantine isn't as popular a character as The Flash or Batman as reasons why the show wasn't doing that well.

NBC Universal does own SyFy, which would probably be a better network for Constantine, so maybe we could see it continue on somewhere else.
