NBC’s This Is Us led the broadcast networks in primetime Tuesday, while CNN drew the night’s biggest audience on cable.
This Is Us rebounded a bit from last week’s same-day series low in total viewers (5.2 million), growing to 5.45 million Tuesday. Its 0.99 rating among adults 18-49 was essentially even with last week’s 1.01. Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist (2.66 million viewers, 0.46 in 18-49) declined a little from its premiere a week ago, and Nurses (2.6 million, 0.38) improved a little.
The season premiere of The Resident on Fox drew a 0.65 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 3.92 million viewers, fairly close to its 2019-20 averages of 0.73 and 4.07 million. Prodigal Son (0.5, 2.34 million), however, opened well below its year-ago numbers.
ABC and CBS aired reruns in primetime, while The CW got modest ratings from the season debut of Two Sentence Horror Stories (0.11 in 18-49, 482,000 viewers) and the U.S. premiere of Canadian drama Trickster (0.09, 441,000).
CNN’s primetime lineup led cable in total viewers (3.92 million), adults 18-49 (0.63) and the key news demo of adults 25-54 (0.97). MSNBC was a close second in viewers with 3.81 million and had the No. 1 individual program in The Rachel Maddow Show (4.68 million). Fox News averaged 2.95 million viewers.
Among non-news shows, History’s The Curse of Oak Island led primetime on cable in both viewers (2.94 million) and adults 18-49 (0.56 rating).
