MasterChef Junior returned on Tuesday to 5.1 million total viewers and a 1.8 rating (per finals), up from both its freshman premiere (4.2 mil/1.6) and finale (4.1 mil/1.5) and hitting an all-time demo high.
Leading out of that, New Girl (3.4 mil/1.6) surged 34 and 14 percent, while Mindy Project (2.8 mil/1.3) rose 32 and 30 percent, with both shows posting best-since-premiere numbers.
Over on ABC, a double-pump of Selfie did 3.7 mil/0.9 and 3.2 mil/0.9, up 8 percent in audience and matching the demo of the 8 o’clock hour’s most recent average with Manhattan Love Story in it. (Next Tuesday, a Modern Family rerun leads out of Selfie.) For completists, that Marvel-mercial drew 3.4 mil/1.2.
Leading out of a Voice clip show, Marry Me (4.5 mil/1.3) slipped two tenths in the demo and About a Boy (3.5mil/0.9) dropped 25 percent.
Fun to look at: The CW’s Flash repeat did 1.8 mil/0.6, while the Supernatural anniversary special rerun drew 1.1 mil/0.4.
The Voice netted the night’s best rating, while an NCIS rerun copped the largest audience (11.5 mil).
