J.J. Abrams may have hit a home run with his Star Wars announcement Tuesday morning but the multi-hyphenate’s new Fox drama Almost Human wasn’t quite as lucky. Fringe‘s J.H. Wyman executive produced and created the show, which starred Karl Urban and Michael Ealy as a cop and a human-like android partner in 2048.
The Fox drama gets a 32% lift after its football lead-in premiere, topping a 4.0 rating in the key demo.
The network will air the pilot Sunday, Nov. 17, with a football lead-in, before moving into its Monday slot the following night.
