The 2014-2015 television season has officially begun. It looks like there have been a few surprises so far, and we are only in day 3. Let’s take a look at Sunday and Monday’s winners and losers:

Sunday

Winners:

  • Madam Secretary – 14+ million viewers and a 2.0 in the 18-49 demographic. Good debut for a CBS drama.
  • Sunday Night Football – Huge debut with over 19 million viewers and a 7.8 in the 18-49 for millions to watch the Seahawks and Broncos rematch after last year’s Super Bowl.

There were no real losers on Sunday, as most shows will be debuting next week.

Monday

Winners:

  • Scorpion – Call that 2/2 for CBS new dramas. 3.3 in the 18-49 and 14 million viewers tuned into this series that is “based on a true story”.
  • The Big Bang Theory relocated back to Monday during football season and debuted to a strong 5.3 and 5.4 in the 18-49 and around 18 million viewers per episode. While it is slightly down, the show is still a major hit.
  • Gotham on Fox debuted to a 3.2 in the 18-49 and slightly over 8 million viewers. It skews young, and hopefully won’t bleed viewers in the coming weeks.
  • The Blacklist returned to NBC for season 2 with 3.4 in the 18-49 and over 12 million viewers, making it the most watched episode since its series premiere last year.

Losers:

  • Sleepy Hollow returned low for season 2 on Fox. Only a 2.0 in the 18-49 and 5 ½ million viewers came back.
  • The Voice was down dramatically from last fall season, but the show still is a major hit for NBC. Last year’s fall debut had a 5.1 in the 18-49 with last night at a 3.9.
  • Forever for ABC debuted low with a 1.5 in the 18-49 and only about 8 million total viewers, which is not good for a series premiere.
