Manifest, Josh Dallas

NBC



More than 10 million viewers chose to fly the not-so-friendly skies with NBC's premiere of "Manifest."

(Maybe it helped to tease out the tense first nine minutes in advance?)

According to TVLine, "Manifest" opened to 10.4 million total viewers on Monday, with a 2.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic. That matched the debut of "The Good Doctor" last year on ABC. And that means "Manifest" tied for TV's highest rated drama series in two years, since "This Is Us."

"Manifest" -- which stars Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh -- managed to build on its lead-in from "The Voice," which opened to 9.7 million viewers and a 2.0 rating.

So far, fans seem pretty hooked, although already confused and frustrated trying to solve the series' mysteries. Some fans are hoping for "Lost," others are worried it'll end up like "Lost." But hopefully it'll be worth sticking around to see.

"Manifest" airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
