TV Ratings: 'Black-ish' Hits Season High, CBS Dramas Rise
ABC's Black-ish got a ratings boost from moving to a different night of the week, and all three of CBS' dramas improved on their last Tuesday outings.
Black-ish scored season highs of a 0.64 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.1 million viewers with a move to Tuesday night. The premiere of To Tell the Truth (0.67, 4.48 million) drew its best demo rating since May — and largest total audience since June 2018. The second season premiere of Mixed-ish (0.59, 2.67 million) was up from its finale, and Big Sky (0.61, 3.84 million) was on par with its last episode in December.
At CBS, NCIS (0.97 in 18-49, 10.02 million viewers), FBI (0.83, 8.27 million) and FBI: Most Wanted (0.67, 6.22 million) all rose vs. their last Tuesday airings. NCIS hit a season high in the 18-49 demo, and Most Wanted had its largest total audience of the year.
Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist (0.48 in 18-49, 2.31 million viewers) ticked up slightly in the demo for NBC. So did Fox's The Resident (0.61, 3.58 million), although Prodigal Son (0.44, 2.18 million) lost some ground.
On cable, The Rachel Maddow Show was again the most watched show in primetime with 3.72 million viewers, topping Tucker Carlson Tonight (3.58 million). Carlson's show, however, helped Fox News score a win for all of primetime in total viewers (3.05 million to MSNBC's 2.91 million). History's The Curse of Oak Island was the clear leader among adults 18-49 on cable: Its 0.62 rating was almost three tenths of a point higher than anything else.
