In the latest TV show ratings, ABC’s Big Sky this week scored the Tuesday demo win (with CBS in rerun mode), holding steady with a 0.6 rating while drawing 3.6 million total viewers. (Read Ron-and-mom post mortem.)
Opening ABC’s lineup, To Tell the Truth (4.2 mil/0.5), black-ish (2.6 mil/0.5) and mixed-ish (2.2 mil/0.4) were all down from last week’s season/midseason premieres.
CBS | An NCIS repeat copped Tuesday’s largest audience: 4.9 million.
NBC | Zoey’s Playlist (2.2 mil/0.4) dipped, while Nurses (1.7 mil/0.3) ticked up. This Is Us returns next week! As far as we know.
FOX | The Resident (4 mil/0.5) dipped, while Prodigal Son (2.4 mil/0.4) was steady.
THE CW | Two-Sentence Horror Stories (519K/0.1) and Trickster (320K/0.1) were both steady in the demo, though the recently cancelled latter slipped to its smallest Stateside audience yet.
The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Kids, ask parents before calling.
