Among adults 18-49, which is the key demo for advertisers on entertainment programming, “Lights Out” averaged a 0.17 rating from Monday-Thursday. Spade played slightly better among adults 25-54, averaging a 0.20 rating.
None of those are great numbers.

On Monday, Spade’s show drew 970,000 gross viewers. That tally includes the sum of its 11:30 p.m. series debut, which was simulcast across Comedy Central, Paramount Network and TV Land, plus one Comedy Central encore. Of that all-in count, which is not really a typical way to tabulate a show’s rating in the first place, 428,000 viewers were between the ages of 18 and 49.
It’s been downhill since there.
