Tuesday night belonged to CBS, though the big news of the night was ABC launching its latest Marvel effort.
Agent Carter, billed as a limited series, entered the Agents of SHIELD time slot with a two-hour opener on Tuesday night. The drama’s performance was very much in line with its sister series. Averaging a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 and 6.2 million viewers, it certainly lifted the 8 p.m. hour. Network projections have the premiere ultimately rising to a 2.7 in the key demo once seven days of DVR are factored in. (As for Forever, the drama returned with an even 1.1 rating.)
CBS saw handsome lifts across the board. NCIS (2.8 adults) and Person of Interest (1.7 adults) were up four-tenths of a point from prior originals, while NCIS: New Orleans (2.5 adults) jumped by six-tenths of a point.
MasterChef Junior saw its third cycle premiere in line with its second — which was just a few months ago, after all — and averaged a 1.8 rating with adults 18-49. Steady outings of New Girl (1.5 adults) and The Mindy Project (1.1 adults) followed.
Over on NBC, repeats of Parks & Recreation were obviously not as good of a lead-in for Marry Me and About a Boy as The Voice. The two comedies each pulled a 0.8 rating with adults 18-49 — both series lows in live-plus-same-day showings. As for Chicago Fire (1.7 adults), it held steady.
