TV Ratings: NBC's 'Game of Silence' Gets a Decent Preview
Aided by the fact that most of the broadcast networks aired at least a few repeats on Tuesday night, NBC swept the three hours of primetime with The Voice and a preview of new drama Game of Silence.
Airing two hours on Tuesday, The Voice managed a steady 2.2 rating among adults 18-49. That led into Game of Silence, which saw a premiere sampling of a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 6.5 million viewers. In the key demo, that stat matched last week's regularly scheduled Chicago Fire, though that series did not have the benefit of a Voice lead-in.
Game of Silence transitions to its regular time slot, Thursdays at 10 p.m., later this week.
CBS pulled second-place status despite the fact that it aired all repeats, while only ABC's comedies weren't new. Agents of SHIELD (1.0 adults) and Beyond the Tank (0.6 adults) were steady and original.
Fox originals included a boost for New Girl. The recently renewed series was up two-tenths of a point to a 1.1 rating in the key demo, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (0.9 adults) and The Grinder (0.6 adults) were both even.
On The CW, a two-hour iZombie finale fetched a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49 and 1.3 million viewers.
