‘Still Star-Crossed’ Debuts w/ Poor Ratings
Shonda Rhimes’ new Shondaland drama, ‘Still Star-Crossed’ made its debut Monday night, debuting with less than impressive ratings. According to Nielsen data, the drama drew in a mere 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.4 million viewers, airing at 10 p.m. The struggling ratings may have been caused by it being debuted on Memorial Day. It is also a summer series, which often draw lower viewership.
