New Show Sets Record For Lowest Ratings In History

The CW on Tuesday set a new television record with the first episode of The L.A. Complex. According to Entertainment Weekly , the midseason series debuted with just 646,000 viewers, making it the lowest-rated in-season broadcast drama debut ever. Despite the title, the series is actually a Canadian production, and it received some decent reviews. EW 's April Daley concluded, "Sure, it's far from must-see TV, but I'm powerless against the lure of a new, cheesy guilty pleasure." Robert Lloyd in the Los Angeles Times wrote, "Even the most concocted bits play out in a relaxed way, as when a drummer lays back behind the beat, putting new life into an old tune, making the corn convincing, the familiar unpredictable."
