Ratings: Flash Ties S.H.I.E.L.D. in Demo

Agents of SHIELD Ratings

With The Flash rising in the demo and Agents of SHIELD slipping, The CW’s DC Comics-fueled freshman speedster caught up to ABC’s Marvel-ous sophomore drama this Tuesday night.

The Flash this week drew 3.93 million total viewers and a 1.5 rating (per finals), ticking up in audience and rising two tenths in the demo. SHIELD (4.6 mil/1.5) meanwhile enjoyed little afterglow from its special, bigger lead-in — a DWTS anniversary thing, which did 9.9 mil and a 1.7 — and was flat in audience while down a tenth in the demo.


ABC | Leading out of SHIELD, a 20/20 special (5.9 mil/1.4) did some 40 percent better than last week’s Forever.

THE CW | iZombie (1.7 mil/0.7) ticked up a tenth.

FOX | Hell’s Kitchen (3.3 mil/1.1) dipped a tenth, while New Girl (2.1 mil/1.0) and Weird Loners (1.4 mil/0.6) both ticked up.

NBC | The Voice (9.5 mil/2.2) slipped 15 percent. Undateable (4.5 mil/1.2) and the One Big Happy finale (3.1 mil/0.8) both dropped to season lows. Chicago Fire (6.9 mil/1.6) added a few eyeballs while flat in the demo.

CBS | NCIS (14.9 mil/2.0) was flat in the demo, matching last week’s series low. NCIS: New Orleans (14.6 mil/1.9) ticked up, while Part 1 of Person of Interest‘s season finale (8.5 mil/1.4) ticked down.
