Naomi, Kaci Walfall

In the latest TV show ratings, Naomi debuted on Tuesday night to 800,000 total viewers and a 0.15 demo rating, marking The CW’s third-most watched season premiere this TV season (trailing only Walker and, as you will see, Superman & Lois).

The CW freshman also delivered its time slot’s largest audience since July, and bested any crowd drawn by The Flash‘s season-opening “Armageddon” event. TVLine readers gave the premiere an average grade of “B-.”

Kicking off The CW’s night, Superman & Lois opened Season 2 with 1.1 million viewers and a 0.2 demo rating, improving a bit on its freshman averages (990K/0.2). TVLine readers gave the premiere an average grade of “A.”


CBS | FBI (8.2 mil/0.7) and International (6.1 mil/0.5) both dipped, though the latter former still led Tuesday in total audience. Most Wanted (5.4 mil/0.5) was steady.

NBC | American Auto (2.4 mil/0.5) and Grand Crew (1.7 mil/0.4) both ticked up, This Is Us (4.9 mil/0.9, read recap and post mortem and flash-forward analysis) dipped but still topped Tuesday in the demo, and New Amsterdam (3.1 mil/0.4) was steady.

ABC | Judge Steve Harvey (4.3 mil/0.6), black-ish (1.9 mil/0.4) and Queens 1.2 mil/0.2) all dipped in the demo, while Abbott Elementary (2.8 mil/0.6) was steady.

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. Warning: Contents may be hot!
