Marlon Wayans returned to late night television with his self-titled comedy series. Premiering on Wednesday night, the NBC series follows Marlon Wayne, who is a loving, but immature father. Wayne is adapting to co-parenting with his very-together ex-wife, Ashley (Essence Atkins). ‘Marlon’ debuted with strong numbers, scoring the second most-watched new summer comedy premiere on the Big 4 broadcast networks in 10 years. “Marlon” averaged a 1.3 rating in adults 18-49 and 5.4 million total viewers. “That is one of the best premieres for a summer comedy series since CBS’ “Creature Comforts” nabbed 6.2 million viewers in 2007,” Variety reported.
