9-1-1 Season 7 Premiere Sets Streaming Record

EXCLUSIVE: 9-1-1 is firing up the airwaves on its new home at ABC.

The Season 7 premiere, which paid homage to the disaster thriller The Poseidon Adventure, has now amassed 8.85M viewers after three days of viewing across ABC, Hulu and other digital platforms.

That’s nearly an 80% increase from the live+same-day audience of 4.93M. The three-day numbers cement the episode as the show’s most-watched multi-platform episode since November 8, 2022 — about halfway through Season 6, which was the final season to run on Fox.

According to Disney, the 9-1-1 premiere hit a new streaming high with 2.4M tuning in across those platforms. On Hulu, the series scored its most-streamed day ever on March 15, one day after Season 7 debuted, tallying 1.6M hours.

In terms of ratings, the ABC drama soared to a 1.84 among the 18-49 demo, which is the show’s highest-rated telecast in nearly two years, since May 16, 2022.

The 9-1-1 Season 7 premiere debuted to 4.93M viewers on March 14, improving just slightly versus the Season 6 premiere’s 4.8M. Compared to the Season 6 average, the premiere episode was up about 5%. It was the largest live+same-day audience for the series since Season 6, Episode 10.

9-1-1 spent six seasons on Fox before making the jump to ABC. It was consistently one of the former network’s highest-rated shows, so these numbers are fairly expected. It fit nicely into ABC’s Thursday lineup with Grey’s Anatomy and Station 19, both of which do well for for the Disney-owned broadcaster, especially Grey’s.

Created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Tim Minear, the series follows the lives of L.A. first responders such as police officers, paramedics, firefighters and dispatchers. The show currently stars Angela Bassett, Peter Krause, Oliver Stark, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ryan Guzman, Aisha Hinds, Kenneth Choi, Corinne Massiah and Gavin McHugh.

The relaunch of 9-1-1 on ABC follows Murphy’s reunion with Disney Entertainment Co-Chairman Dana Walden as he recently returned to his previous studio home at 9-1-1 producer 20th Television, now part of Disney TV Studios.
