TV Ratings: 'Marry Me' Premieres Well, 'The Flash' Holds Strong After Premiere
With The Voice as its launchpad on Tuesday night, NBC's latest stab at Tuesday half-hours, Marry Me, got off to a solid start. The romantic comedy starring Casey Wilson and Ken Marino averaged a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 7.8 million viewers in Fast National live-plus-same-day numbers.
The network failed to hold on to most of its Voice haul (3.3 adults rating) for the full block of comedies, with the second season of About a Boy kicking off with a 1.8 rating in the key demo. Chicago Fire, steady with the week prior, brought the demo showing back up to a 2.0 rating at 10 p.m.
CBS is the only Big Four network not airing any Tuesday comedies this fall, and its trio of dramas — NCIS (2.5 adults), NCIS: New Orleans (2.2 adults) and Person of Interest (1.5 adults) — all held steady with last week.
Selfie (1.2 adults) shed another two-tenths of a point on ABC, leading into a flat (and low) Manhattan Love Story (0.9 adults). ABC also saw Agents of SHIELD (1.6 adults) hold steady and Forever (1.1 adults) drop two-tenths of a point.
On The CW, the second episode of The Flash held up considerably well. It was down three-tenths of a point in the key demo for a 1.6 rating and pulled 4.1 million viewers. (That's enough to help it again outrate ABC and Fox during the 8 p.m. hour.) Supernatural held steady with a 1.0 rating in the demo.
New Girl (1.2 adults) shed two-tenths of a point from last week's showing on Fox, while The Mindy Project (1.0 adults) held steady.
