/// Ironside Rolls to a Dead Stop; Super Fun Night Lifts ABC
ABC’s decision to mothball the Super Fun Night pilot seems to have paid off, as the replacement episode performed well on Wednesday night. The series premiere of the Rebel Wilson vehicle delivered 8.21 million viewers and a 3.2 rating among adults 18-49, making it the night’s No. 2 show. Per Nielsen fast national data, lead-in Modern Family won the night with a 4.2 in the dollar demo—flat versus last week’s season premiere. Super Fun Night’s ratings are likely to be downgraded somewhat, as the 9:30 p.m. data stream includes a minute of Modern Family overrun. For the time being, the show now stands as the season’s second highest-rated new comedy premiere, trailing CBS’ The Crazy Ones (3.9) and edging ABC’s The Goldbergs (3.1). ABC pulled the critically derided pilot shortly after the summer TCA press tour. In its place, the network slotted Episode 102, which featured a plot that allowed Wilson to show off her Pitch Perfect pipes.
