Tuesday Ratings: Queens Flat With Finale, ABC Sitcoms Eye Lows

Queens Renewed Cancelled

In the latest TV show ratings, ABC “bubble” drama Queens closed out its freshman run on Tuesday night with its smallest audience yet (an even 1 million viewers) and a second straight 0.2 demo rating.

With Live+7 DVR playback factored in, Queens has been averaging 1.92 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating — ranking last and No. 7 out of the eight dramas ABC has fielded this TV season. TVLine readers gave both the finale and the season an average grade of “A”; read post mortem.

Opening ABC’s Tuesday, Jeopardy! National College Championship (4 mil/0.5) drew its smallest audience thus far, while Abbot Elementary (2.2 mil/0.4) and black-ish (1.5 mil0.3) both slipped to season lows.


NBC | Broadcast primetime Winter Olympics coverage averaged 8.1 mil and a 1.4.

FOX | The Resident (3.2 mil/0.4) and The Real Dirty Dancing (1.4 mil/0.2) each dropped a few eyeballs while steady in the demo.

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. Steve Harvey is not a judge or lawyer and merely offers an alternative forum of dispute resolution.
