TV Ratings: ‘This Is Us’ Returns Strong in Post-Election Tuesday

Tuesday’s preliminary Nielsen ratings returned to normal after last week’s anomalous election.

NBC’s “This Is Us” continued to dominate, drawing a 2.6 in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 9.5 million viewers. That was up three tenths of a point from its Nov. 1 airing, but even better, it’s pulling in a 1.7 rating in the 18-34 demographic, head and shoulders above everything else airing on the night, including “The Voice” (2.1 18-49 demo rating, 9.66 million viewers). “Chicago Fire,” its lead-out, drew a 1.5 in the demo and 6.94 million viewers.

CBS had its reliable stable of procedurals. “NCIS” came in with a 1.7 in the demo and 14.61 million viewers. “Bull” drew a 1.5 and 11.79 million viewers. “NCIS: New Orleans” brought in a 1.2 and 9.06 million viewers.

ABC’s Tuesday comedies returned around the same as their previous airings. “The Middle” started off with a 1.6 and 6.16 million viewers. “American Housewife” followed with a 1.6 and 5.24 million. “Fresh Off the Boat” pulled in a 1.3 and 4.26 million. “The Real O’Neals” drew a 1.1 and 3.56 million. A one-off David Blaine special, “David Blaine: Beyond Magic,” capped off the night and won the hour in the demo for ABC with a 1.6 and an average audience of 5.13 million.

On Fox, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “New Girl” both drew a 0.9 in the demo. “Brooklyn” had the slight edge in viewers, with 2.21 million, while “New Girl” came in with 1.96 million. “Scream Queens” drew a 0.6 and just 1.44 million viewers.

On The CW, “The Flash” ticked back up to a 1.2 in the demo and 3 million viewers. “No Tomorrow” continues to struggle, though, with a 0.3 demo rating and 855,000 viewers.
