NBC edged ABC by a hair with a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demo for the night and 3.43 million viewers. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Welcome To Sweden started off the new comedy hour, managing a paltry 0.9 rating, while Working the Engels debuted a tick lower with a 0.7 rating. Last Comic Standing was even with a 1.0 demo rating.
