The pilot, which aired at 11:06 PM without commercials, averaged a 5.6 adults 18-49 rating. According to the ratings website, however, the program "will not be measured in official national Nielsen reports and will not be included in averages for the night."
The cast features Matthew Perry as Ryan, Laura Benanti as Lauren, John Cho as Steven, Julie White as Annie, Brett Gelman as Mr. K, Suzy Nakamura as Yolanda and Tyler James Williams as Owen.
In the new series, Perry, according to NBC, plays Ryan King, "a recent widower and sports talk radio host ready to get back to work after the loss of his wife. Ryan's alpha-male boss, Stephen, played by John Cho, has a different plan in store for Ryan, making him attend grief counseling before returning to the air. A reluctant Ryan finds himself in a support group for 'life change,' where he meets an oddball cast of characters, all with their own backstories filled with varying degrees of loss."
"Go On" is a production of Universal Television, Dark Toy Entertainment and Silver & Gold Productions.
The official series premiere is scheduled for Sept. 11 at 9 PM ET.
