CBS’ drama FBI led Tuesday’s adults 18-49 rankings in primetime — beating its lead-in, NCIS (which hit an all-time low in the key ad demographic), for the first time when the two shows have aired back to back.
It was a relatively soft night for broadcast TV overall, with no show gathering even 1 million people who fall in the 18-49 age range. FBI came closest, with its 0.68 rating equivalent to about 880,000 people.
NCIS, meanwhile, recorded a 0.6 in adults 18-49, a tenth of a point behind its previous low. It did lead primetime among all viewers, averaging 8.56 million. FBI finished second in viewers with 7.57 million, while FBI: Most Wanted had 5.62 million viewers to go with a 0.57 rating in the 18-49 demo. CBS swept primetime in both measures, as well as among adults 25-54.
History’s The Curse of Oak Island had the next best 18-49 rating across broadcast and cable with a 0.51. It also finished second on cable in total viewers with 2.87 million, behind only the 2.95 million for Tucker Carlson Tonight on Fox News.
The Resident scored a 0.48 on Fox to go with 3.29 million viewers. Prodigal Son followed with a 0.32 and 1.8 million viewers. NBC’s Young Rock (0.46, 2.4 million) and New Amsterdam (0.36, 3.1 million) were both down week-to-week, but Kenan (0.39, 1.8 million) inched up in the demo.
ABC’s Pooch Perfect (0.42 in 18-49, 2.59 million viewers), Black-ish (0.37, 2.07 million), Mixed-ish (0.33, 1.75 million) and Big Sky (0.37, 2.69 million) all declined by a few hundredths of a point in the key demo, although the first three grew slightly in total viewers. Supergirl (0.11, 504,000) also dipped slightly on The CW.
