TV Ratings: 'MasterChef Junior' Leads Broadcast on State of the Union Night

'MasterChef'
FOX

Gordon Ramsay's flagship continues to cook for Fox and will be back for its sixth season. 

MasterChef Junior led a State of the Union-skewed Tuesday night on the broadcast networks.

The Fox competition, even with its most recent 1.7 rating among adults 18-49, was the top performer in the key demo — that is at least until time zone adjustments come for President Obama's 9 p.m. telecast.

Competition came from Parks and Recreation, steady with last week's premiere score of a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49, and The CW. The fifth broadcast network, the only one to air original programming at 9 p.m, had new episodes of The Flash (1.3 adults) and Supernatural (1.0 adults).

Final tallies for the State of the Union won't come until later on Wednesday — though its broadcast performance looks largely even with last year — with NBC leading younger viewers and CBS pulling in the biggest audience.
