Fast National ratings for Tuesday, April 28, 2015.
With "NCIS: New Orleans" coming tantalizingly close to moving ahead of the "NCIS" mothership, CBS dominated Tuesday overall and eked out the slimmest of victories in the key demographic.
It was a mixed Tuesday for superheroes. Despite an episode tying heavily into the sure-to-be-blockbuster premiere of the "Avengers" sequel and a "Dancing with the Stars" lead-in, ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." failed to get any bump. However, The CW's heavily promoted new episode of "The Flash" had a big night.
On the comedy front, FOX's "New Girl" continued to toe The Mulaney Line, NBC's "One Big Happy" slipped below for its finale and "Weird Loners" continued its struggling ways.
With "Weird Loners" so low, the regular CW lineup topped a FOX lineup of FOX's originals in most measures.
On to the numbers...
