Ratings: State of the Union at 15-Year Low, Flash and Parks Tick Down

State of Union Ratings 2015

President Barack Obama’s Sate of the Union address on Tuesday night amassed 31.7 million total viewers across the broadcast and cable networks that covered it, down 5 percent from a year ago and thus marking a 15-year low.

Elsewhere on the night….

THE CW | The Flash returned to 3.7 mil and a 1.3, down 21 percent and two tenths from its midseason finale. Supernatural (2.5 mil/1.0), however, held steady.

NBC | This week’s Parks and Recreation double-pump averaged 3.9 mil/1.4, up 10 percent in audience but down a tenth in the demo from its final season premiere night.

FOX | MasterChef Junior (5.4 mil/1.7) added some eyeballs while steady in the demo, topping the night in the latter measure.

CBS | An NCIS rerun drew the night’s largest, non-SOTU audience, with 11.9 million total viewers.
