/// No Dino-Mite Showing for ‘Terra Nova’
Fox’s multimillion-dollar epic Terra Nova got off to a somewhat shaky start Monday night, finishing third in its time slot and falling well shy of a 4.0 adults 18-49 rating. The two-hour premiere of the Jason O’Mara time-travel drama averaged a 3.1 rating and an 8 share in the demo, while drawing 9.22 million viewers, per Nielsen live-plus-same-day data. At 8 p.m., Terra Nova fell shy of the year-ago delivery for the season seven premiere of House , which drew 10.5 million viewers and a 4.1/11 in the demo. And while the new series did improve on last season’s 9 p.m. Lone Star debut—the prime-time soap was dead on arrival, drawing 4.1 million viewers and a 1.3/3 in the demo— expectations for Terra Nova were much higher than what the early numbers will bear out. Unfortunately for Fox, Monday night is proving to be a bear.
