A&E Channel’s Detective drama “The Beast” is not faring too well in the ratings, six shows into the season.

 ”The Beast” (2.4 million, 0.8 adults 18-49 rating) was down 20% in the adult demo from the network’s last scripted premiere, July’s “The Cleaner.”

Compared to the most recent premiere of its lead-in “The First 48,” “Beast” was down 27% in the demo. Still, “Beast” matched the total viewers of last night’s “First 48.”
