In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ #TheFBIs tied Fox’s 9-1-1: Lone Star for the Tuesday demo win, while FBI proper copped the night’s biggest audience.
CBS | FBI (with 6.6 million total viewers and a 0.4 rating) was up in viewers but down in the demo from its installment in last week’s well-watched crossover. International (5.6 mil/0.4) and Most Wanted (4.9 mil/0.4) were both down in both measures.
FOX | 9-1-1: Lone Star (3.3 mil/0.4, read post mortem) and Accused (1.9 mil/0.2) were both steady in the demo, with the latter posting its best audience in five episodes.
THE CW | Superman & Lois (650K/0.1) and Gotham Knights (400K/0.1) both shed eyeballs, with the latter hitting a series low.
NBC | Night Court (2.7 mil/0.3) slipped to new series lows, and American Auto (1.5 mil/0.2) posted an audience low. The Wall‘s return (2/1 mil/0.3) was well shy of The Voice‘s latest numbers in the time slot, whereas Weakest Link (2 mil/0.3) was on par with Sir, That Is My Jam.

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. This is only an exhibition, this is not a competition. Please, no wagering.
I really want to like Night Court. I think the writing is not strong and it’s not that funny. I think they need new writers and a stronger cast.
American Auto has such potential. A couple of this season’s episodes were laugh out loud funny like when they all went to the CEO’s house. But the Wesley Payne character needs to go or be toned way down. He was so annoying this week, I forwarded through his scenes. I think they are trying to make him a “Michael Scott”, but the difference is we rooted for Michael. You can tolerate it better when the character is annoying but still funny. He’s just annoying and you want him to go away.
Fully agreed. It’s my favourite network sitcom right now (I think it’s more consistently funny than Ghosts, which is my number 2), but I can’t deal with the Wesley character at all. Still really hoping for a renewal but it’s feeling like a long shot.
It’s the only way Jon Baronholtz knows how to act
Noooo. I am loving Gotham Knights. I hope the delayed numbers give it a big boost.
It is apparently doing very well streaming on hbomax… I just read it’s their 3rd most popular series streaming.
I think both DC series last night featured weaker episodes, however the acting by Bitsie Tulloch on Superman and Lois this season has been phenomenal. i’ve never dealt with an immediate family member having cancer, so i was curious if Lois being so adamant about going to the barn dance was because she could control the situation, because she couldnt control chemo. Now on Gotham Knights, i was really into Harvey’s storyline last night and the abuse he suffered from his father, Christopher who would blackout and not remember everything that happened during the blackouts. I find Harvey’s turn into Two-Face build to be pretty interesting
Glad to see Weakest Link return but I can do without gimmicks (twins, celebrities). The Wall is tough to watch despites it’s good intentions. The endless talk… I miss live audiences. Everything feels canned.
Political, including present company
Apparently Gotham Knights is currently HBOMAX’s 3rd ranked streaming series, trailing Last of Us and Succession.
I’m unhappy that both OG 9-1-1 and Lone Star had such wonderful, thoroughly entertaining episodes this week yet their audiences were less than stellar. Hoping if only one can be renewed – that it will be the OG with its outstanding cast and storylines.
NBC got ahead of itself by renewing Night Court so early for a second season given its not really funny. American Auto should be renewed because I love the funny and sassyness it has. Plus it also tackles real business issues with a comedic side.
