TV Ratings: ‘This Is Us’ Wedding Wins, ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Avoids Another Low

After the chaos of last week’s presidential press conference announcing Donald Trump’s SCOTUS nomination, this Tuesday settled back into the well-worn grooves of the season.

This Is Us” once again reigned by a wide margin in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, though it ticked down just a smidge from its last new episode. The wedding episode drew a 2.5 in the demo and 9.54 million viewers. Lead-in “The Wall” performed with its usual 1.4 in the demo and 6.04 million viewers. “Chicago Fire” came out with a 1.5 and 6.78 million viewers.

CBS’ Tuesday lineup held roughly steady. “NCIS” drew a 1.7 in the demo and 15.43 million viewers. “Bull” came in low again with a 1.3 in the demo and 10.72 million viewers. “NCIS: New Orleans” brought in a 1.0 and 8.91 million viewers.

“The Middle” kicked off ABC’s comedy block with a 1.5 and 6.33 million viewers. “American Housewife” held onto that demo rating and garnered an audience of 5.36 million viewers. “Fresh Off the Boat” drew a 1.2 and 3.79 viewers. “The Real O’Neals” came in with a 0.9 and 2.82 million. “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” ticked up from last week’s low with a 0.7 and 2.13 million viewers.

The CW’s DC lineup was also steady. “The Flash” brought in a 1.1 in the demo and 2.94 million viewers. “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” drew a 0.7 and 1.89 million viewers.

Fox’s “New Girl” held at a 0.9 in the demo and 2.27 million viewers. “The Mick” ticked down a couple tenths to a low 0.9 and 2.49 million viewers. “Bones” also took a dip, to a 0.7 and 3.04 million viewers.

As a reminder, most of these series will see lifts of 50% or more once viewing within three and seven days is counted. However, most of these gains won’t translate to the ratings guarantees networks make advertisers.
