Last night, NBC finally premiered its new drama Constantine, a new show about an exorcist and occult detective that also happens to mark the networks first entry into DCs comic TV realm. NBC has been looking for a stable series to pair with Grimm for quite some time, and Constantine may be a winner. Last night, Constantine capably pulled a 1.4 rating, which was down just a smidge from Grimms 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
The good news for Constantine is that it kept most of its Grimm lead in, nabbing 4.3 million total viewers during its premiere. Thats a million total viewers down from Grimm, which did 5.3 million total viewers on Friday night, but still relatively good overall.
