TOUCH: Down In Finale Ratings


Jake wont be happy. Touch wrapped its first season with soft numbers in last night’s two-part finale.

The Kiefer Sutherland series averaged 4.65 million total viewers across its two-hour run, scoring a 1.3 demo rating.

This is some 23 percent down from the show’s previous installment, which, it should be mentioned, had the boost of an American Idol lead-in.

Touch returns with a second season this fall on Fridays, with a lot more Maria Bello and hopefully a lot less exasperation from Martin. The series has the honor of leading in the final season of Fringe.

    I thought it was well-done but these 2-hour marathons are a terrible idea. Alcatraz had problems with ratings on these 2-hour endurance tests. Huge incentive for DVR to shorten up the time.
