ABC’s Wicked City premiered on Tuesday night to just 3.3 million total viewers and a 0.9 rating (per finals), drawing a smaller audience than time slot predecessor Forever ever did while matching that dearly departed drama’s lowest demo number.
Even Forever’s own airing opposite Game 1 of the World Series drew 5 mil and a 1.2 — though this year’s Fall Classic opened with markedly bigger numbers. More on that in a bit.
Opening ABC’s night, The Muppets (4.3 mil/1.4) and Fresh off the Boat (4.1 mil/1.5) ticked up while Agents of SHIELD (3.8 mil/1.4) dipped a tenth.
Elsewhere in the ratings….
CBS | NCIS (16.8 mil/2.1) dipped a tenth while New Orleans (13 mil/1.6) and Limitless (7.6 mil/1.4) were steady.
THE CW | The Flash (3.4 mil/1.4) was steady, while iZombie (1.5 mil/0.6) ticked up.
NBC | Best Time Ever (4.2 mil/1.1) and The Voice (10.2 mil/2.6) each dipped a tenth while Chicago Fire (7.8 mil/1.9) rose 2 percent and three tenths to deliver its best numbers since April 7.
FOX | The World Series opener drew 14.9 mil and a 4.6, up 22 and 35 percent from last year’s Game 1 and giving Fox its best Tuesday since February 2012.
