Episode 13 was an unlucky number for ABC bubble drama The Rookie, which this Tuesday ticked down to hit and tie its series lows, with 3.6 million total viewers and a 0.6 demo rating.
Opening ABC’s night, American Housewife (4.3 mil/0.9) ticked up, while Kids Are Alright (3.2 mil/0.7), black-ish (3.1 mil/0.8) and Splitting Up Together (2.6 mil/0.6) were all steady in the demo. (That said, Kids and black-ish dipped to series-low audiences.)
CBS | NCIS (13.2 mil/1.3) held into its second-best demo number of the season while rising to its largest audience since May 8; TVLine readers gave Ziva’s stealthy return an average grade of “A-.” FBI (9.4 mil/1.0) rose 27 and 25 percent from its previous, post-Celeb Big Brother outing, while New Orleans (7.2 mil/0.8) was steady.
NBC | Ellen’s Game of Games (6 mil/1.5) ticked up from last week’s pre-SOTU hour. This Is Us (7.3 mil/1.7, read post mortem) returned from a three-week break down 11 percent and two tenths, marking new series lows. New Amsterdam (5.8 mil/1.0) was steady.
THE CW | A nearly Flash-less The Flash (1.71 mil/0.6) dipped, but Roswell (1.15 mil/0.3) was steady.
FOX | Lethal Weapon (3.2 mil/0.7) and The Gifted (1.6 mil/0.5) were steady in the demo, though the latter matched its smallest audience yet.
