TV Ratings: Series Low for 'The Voice' Still Helps 'New Amsterdam'
For the second straight week, The Voice's Tuesday show hit an all-time low in adults18-49. Yet after a time slot switch, it still helped New Amsterdam grow week to week.
It was a soft night for the broadcast networks as a whole, with no show managing to get to a 1.0 among adults 18-49.
The Voice moved back an hour to 9 p.m. following last week's low, switching places with The Village. The move didn't help the singing competition, whose 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demographic was down a tenth of a point and a new low for a regular episode.
That was, however, a better lead-in for New Amsterdam than The Village had been in recent weeks, and the medical drama's 0.8 demo rating was a 33 percent improvement on last week's season-low 0.6. The Village was steady at 0.6 in it earlier slot.
ABC's comedy Bless This Mess (0.7, -0.2) came down some from its premiere last week, but its 3.58 million viewers are still well ahead of Splitting Up Together's season average (2.76 million). Black-ish (0.7) declined by 0.1, and American Housewife and The Kids Are Alright (0.6) held at 0.8. The ABC News docuseries 1969 premiered to a 0.4 and a little under 3 million viewers at 10 p.m.
The season finale of Roswell, New Mexico drew a 0.3 for The CW, up a tick from a week ago and in line with its season average. The Flash was steady at 0.5.
Following a pair of NCIS reruns, NCIS: New Orleans posted a 0.6 in the 18-49 demo, off a little bit week to week. Fox's Masterchef Junior (0.7) and Mental Samurai (0.5) both held steady. Night two of Telemundo's La Reina del Sur posted a 0.7, down from the 1.0 for its premiere but still well above the Spanish-language broadcaster's prior average.
