Blame Canada!

The CW’s new midseason effort, the imported sexy soap The L.A. Complex, set a new benchmark Tuesday night: According to network research analysts, The L.A. Complex is the lowest-rated in-season broadcast drama debut on record (tracking back to the start of the current ratings measurement system).

Despite relatively upbeat reviews, Complex opened to only 646,000 viewers and a 0.3 rating in the adult demo. By comparison, Ringer averaged 40 percent higher in the 9 p.m. slot. Yes, L.A. Complex numbers actually made Ringer look good. Complex also shed half its 90210 (1.2 million, 0.6) lead in.
