"K-Ville" earned a healthy Nielsen preliminary 3.4 rating among 18-49 viewers--the highest-rated show of the evening. As a mark of its strength, it over-delivered by 6% from the ratings of Fox's returning drama "Prison Break," which earned a 3.2 for its season debut.
That said, Fox's results came as virtually all of the other networks are still in repeats or at the end of summer programming runs. The official start to the season is next Monday.
Fox led the night among 18-49 viewers with a 3.3 rating/9 share. CBS was next at 2.6/7; NBC was right behind at 2.5/7; ABC was fourth at 2.3/6; Univision came in fifth at 1.7/5, and CW was sixth at 0.7/2.
