Decent premiere for CBS's 'Golden Boy'
The new CBS drama Golden Boy won its admittedly very weak timeslot in its debut last night, posting an okay rating. Boy averaged a 1.8 in adults 18-49, according to Nielsen, improving a solid 20% on former timeslot occupant Vegas' 1.5 last week. Boy doubled the rating for NBC’s competing Smash and finished 50% ahead of ABC’s Body of Proof in the 10 p.m. timeslot. Still, it wasn’t a remarkable rating even considering the late hour. Boy dropped 38 percent of its strong lead-in, NCIS: Los Angeles, which averaged a 2.6.
