Fox's "The Following" gets a following

 

After a rough fall, Fox got some good mid-season good news.

 

Its new serial-killer drama "The Following" grabbed the second best drama opening ratings this year --  a Nielsen 3.2 rating/7 share among 18-49 viewers on Monday night at 9 p.m. NBC's "Revolution" had the biggest opening rating results this year for a new drama -- thanks to a big lead-in from "The Voice."

 

"Following" didn't have this. In fact, it out-delivered its 8 p.m. lead-in program, "Bones", which scored a lower 2.3/6.

Fox has been down some 20% among key demographics in Nielsen C3 so far this season.
