The premiere episode of Downfall last night, hosted by WWE superstar Chris Jericho, did 5.9 million viewers, which is above the average of Raw, not that a WWE comparison matters.

ABC shot six 42-minute episodes in Los Angeles earlier this month with the idea they will do more if the show is successful. Downfall is produced by the same production company as American Idol and The Price is Right.
