TV Ratings: 'Voice,' CBS repeats lead Tuesday while 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' rises and 'Boy' falls
Even with three procedural repeats, CBS was the most watched network on Tuesday night, while NBC's "The Voice" was the night's top show among young viewers and led a primetime sweep.
With "The Voice" down week-to-week, both "About a Boy" and "Growing Up Fisher" also posted drops -- Somewhat sizable for "Boy" and a bit more modest for "Fisher." However, with "Person of Interest" airing a repeat, "Chicago Fire" got to be up week-to-week.
Percentage-wise, the night's biggest gainer was actually "Mind Games" on ABC, which rose from a dismal 0.6 key demo rating to a dismal 0.9 key demo rating with "PoI" out. ABC's lineup had mixed returns, as "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." was up, but "The Goldbergs" dropped a little.
Finally, "Glee" dropped to a 0.9 in the key demo rating, which tied with The CW's "Originals" for that hour.
On to the numbers...
Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 2.4 rating for Tuesday night, tops in the key demographic. ABC was second with a 1.4 key demo rating, followed by CBS' 1.3 key demo rating and the 1.1 key demo rating for FOX. The CW averaged a 0.7 key demo rating for the night.
Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 9.36 million viewers and a 6.2 rating/10 share for Tuesday, nipping the 9.22 million viewers and 5.9/10 for NBC for the night. There was a huge drop to ABC's 2.6/4 and 3.97 million viewers and to FOX's 2.4 million and 1.6/3. The CW averaged a 1.0/2 and 1.65 million viewers for the night.
[For perspective on how old the CBS Tuesday repeat audience skewed, the network averaged a 0.6 rating for the night among adults 18-34, tied with The CW.]
