TV Ratings: ‘Roseanne’ Loses to ‘NCIS’ in Total Viewers, Drops 26% in Key Demo

Roseanne” was once again the top show of Tuesday night by a wide margin in the key demo, but fell to CBS’ “NCIS” in total viewers.

Airing at 8 p.m., “Roseanne” averaged a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 10.3 million viewers. “NCIS” pulled in a 1.2 in the demo and 12.1 million viewers, with the episode being the first of a two-parter that will see the exit of longtime series regular Pauley Perrette. This marks the first time “Roseanne” has been beaten in either measure since its premiere in late March.

Furthermore, “Roseanne” was down by approximately 26% in the demo and 23% in total viewers compared to its last original episode on April 17. The revival of the ABC series was bound to come down to earth at some point, and it has plenty of room to fall before anyone need be concerned.

Later on ABC, “The Middle” (1.5, 6.1 million) took hits in both measure comparable to “Roseanne.” “Black-ish” (1.2, 4.6 million) was up slightly in total viewers, while “Splitting Up Together” (1.1, 3.9 million) was up slightly in the demo. “For the People” (0.6, 2.2 million) was also up slightly in the demo.

After “NCIS,” “Bull” (1.1, 10.3 million) was even. “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9, 8.1 million) ticked up in the demo.

On NBC, “The Voice” (1.2, 7.5 million) was down by over 20% in both measures from last week. “Rise” (0.7, 3.8 million) was even while “Chicago Med” (0.9, 5.8 million) ticked down in the demo.

For Fox, “Lethal Weapon” (0.7, 3.1 million) is at a new low. “LA to Vegas” (0.5, 1.8 million) and “New Girl” (0.5, 1.5 million) were also down.

On The CW, “The Flash” (0.6, 1.7 million) and “The 100” (0.4, 1.1 million) were down in viewers.

ABC topped the night in the demo with a 1.3 but finished third in viewers with 4.9 million. CBS was second in the demo with a 1.1 but first in viewers with 10.2 million. NBC was third in the demo with a 0.9 but second in viewers with 5.7 million. Fox was fourth overall with a 0.6 and 2.3 million. The CW averaged a 0.5 and 1.4 million viewers.
