Fast National ratings for Tuesday, March 4, 2014.
NBC got decent news with the season's first real week of original comedies in the 9 p.m. hour, as "About a Boy" and "Growing Up Fisher" comfortably beat the sitcoms on FOX and ABC, joining with "The Voice" and "Chicago Fire" for a comfortable primetime win among young viewers.
CBS, of course, swept primetime overall, though all of its drama procedurals were nearing series lows.
Speaking of series lows ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." and "Trophy Wife" both had miserable nights, but if the network wants a tiny bit of solace, "The Goldbergs" held up decently in the middle of the morass. "Trophy Wife," in turn, sent "Mind Games" to rather impressive lows in its second week.
On the negative side of things, FOX also got miserable numbers for "Glee."
Finally, over on The CW, "Supernatural" was down from last week, tightening the gap with the stable "Originals."
On to the numbers...
