Leading out of an encore of the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. pilot — which drew 4.3 million total viewers and a 1.2 rating (aka about half of the freshman drama’s week-ago numbers) — The Goldbergs did 5.4 mil and a 1.7, adding a few eyeballs and steady in the demo.
Trophy Wife then upped the ante by gaining viewers (with 4.3 mil) and rising two tenths in the demo (1.4).
Perhaps Fox’s own comedy options riding the pine helped ABC have the last laugh…?
Over on CBS, NCIS matched last week’s 19 mil/3.0, while NCIS: LA (14.8 mil/2.6) ticked up a tenth in the demo. Person of Interest (11.9 mil/1.8), however, dropped 10 and 18 percent and hit a series low in the demo, this week facing off against a second hour of The Voice.
The Biggest Loser opened NBC’s night with 6 mil and a 1.8, down 10 percent in the demo. The Voice averaged 11.4 mil and a 3.5, dropping 15 percent week-to-week and down from the previous cycle’s “Knockout Round” (11.8 mil/3.9).
