Fox did an excellent job promoting it and I felt that there were a lot of people that were genuinely interested, but it'll be interesting to see how the ratings hold next week.
It wasn't the best show I've ever seen, but I did enjoy it and was never bored. I'll probably watch it again next week
I enjoyed the pilot, a few of the jokes didnt quite land, but I see a lot of potential in this series. The main thing they need to figure out though is if they want to be a Galaxy Quest style homage to Star Trek or more of a light hearted sci fi adventure series. Neither is a bad option but it will help them find a tone.
I really liked watching the bridge crew when the captain and XO were gone, hope they bring in more of that, the characters felt a lot more real and fun to watch.
>As it currently stands, “The Orville” averaged a 2.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 7.3 million total viewers, airing at 8 p.m. That means it is currently the second-biggest broadcast drama premiere in the key demo since NBC’s “This Is Us” last September (2.8), excluding Super Bowl lead-ins. In addition, the show was the most social scripted program on broadcast Sunday based on total Twitter interactions.
I'm glad a lot of people watched it. It was a good, fun show and I hope it runs a while.
I enjoyed it. The characters felt like real every day people just doing their jobs.
Even the most professional jobs in the real world have people making jokes and goofing off at work. The tone of the show just made it feel more "real" to me.
Will definitely watch more. The show has the possibility to evolve into something good. Don't focus too much on comedy or on drama. Keep a nice mix of both.
I had no intentions of watching it, but as I was evacuated from my home and had no DVR, I ended up catching it. And it was way better than I expected. Not too much of a comedy or a drama.
Will watch again.
I'm glad to hear this. I thought the first episode was pretty good. I'd like to see where it goes.
I like Science Fiction and I enjoy Seth MacFarlane's humor. There aren't many Sci Fi comedies out there like Galaxy Quest. I look forward to watching it and seeing it progress.
I thought it was a "comedy", not a drama. I turned it on but quickly got tired of it. Ended up watching the game on NBC.
