TNT's "FRANKLIN & BASH" Opens with 2.7 Million Viewers, While Peabody Award-Winning "MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE" Draws 1.8 Million

TNT's summer season got off to a solid start last night. The new legal dramedy FRANKLIN & BASH summoned 2,746,000 viewers for its series premiere and proved to be a hit with young adults, according to fast national data from Nielsen Media Research. The Peabody Award-winning MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE, one of the most acclaimed series on television, followed with 1,846,000 viewers.

FRANKLIN & BASH, starring Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Breckin Meyer, scored strong deliveries among key adult demos, with 1,145,000 adults 18-49 and 1,224,000 adults 25-54. The show did particularly well among adults 18-34, with 554,000 viewers in that younger demo.

The critically acclaimed MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE, starring Ray Romano, Scott Bakula and Andre Braugher, also averaged 591,000 adults 18-49 and 825,000 adults 25-54. The show is expected to boost its adult demo deliveries by at least 50% when final Live + 7 data becomes available in two weeks.

In FRANKLIN & BASH, Gosselaar and Meyer star as two young, fly-by-the-seat-of-their-pants street lawyers who cause a seismic culture clash when they join a legendary, button-down law firm. The series also stars Malcolm McDowell, Dana Davis, Kumail Nanjiani, Reed Diamond and Garcelle Beauvais. FRANKLIN & BASH is produced by Four Sycamore Productions, Left Coast Productions and FanFare Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television, with Jamie Tarses, Kevin Falls and Bill Chais serving as executive producers.

MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE is a serio-comic look at three men finding their way through midlife. Since premiering in December 2009, the series has been widely acclaimed, landing on many critics' year-end Top 10 lists. The show recently received the highest honor in television - the Peabody Award. It also earned Andre Braugher a 2010 Emmy(R) nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor. Created by Ray Romano and Mike Royce, MEN OF A CERTAIN AGE is produced by TNT Original Productions, with Romano, Royce, Rory Rosegarten and Cary Hoffman serving as executive producers.
