After winning a lot of Emmys ABC’s comedy “Abbott Elementary” went back to school on Wednesday with a new season that picked up right where the first one left off last spring.
Based on time zone-adjusted Nielsen Live + Same Day data, Episode 1 of Season 2 averaged a 0.6 rating among adults ages 18–49 and 2.8 million total viewers, making it ABC’s highest-rated show during Wednesday prime time.
That’s an excellent start to the new school year for “Abbott Elementary,” which finished its first season with a 0.6 rating and 2.8 million total viewers in April.
I saw the first episode of this season’s #AbbottElementary and I was crying bc I had a Ms. Howard too.
When I was in elementary school, my first Black teacher was my 4th grade educator Ms. Crutchfield. I loved her, she felt like family.
I was the only physically disabled kid

The second season premiere of “Abbott” did just as well as the first one which aired right after Jimmy Kimmel and Norman Lear’s third “Live in Front of a Studio Audience” special and got a 0.6 rating and 2.9 million total viewers.
And suppose the Nielsen ratings for the second season of “Abbott” are anything like they were for the first. In that case, it will keep growing outside of the “Live” window, especially with younger viewers: ABC says that after 35 days of airing on TV and online platforms like Hulu, Season 1 of “Abbott Elementary” had an average of 8.11 million viewers and a 2.73 rating.
The first season of “Abbott Elementary” was nominated for seven Emmys and won three. The creator and star Quinta Brunson won an award for comedy writing the show’s casting and Sheryl Lee Ralph won an award for supporting actress.
With a cable or streaming provider login, you can watch the show on ABC.com. Abbott Elementary will be accessible on Hulu for people who don’t have cable or live TV.
