The Voice fell to its lowest adults 18-49 rating ever Tuesday night. ABC’s comedy Bless This Mess, on the other hand, premiered with the network’s best rating in the time period since late October.
The Voice posted a 1.0 rating in the key ad demographic, its lowest rating ever for a regular episode (the previous low was 1.2). The NBC show also failed to finish first in its time period for the first time in its spring cycle, falling short of the 1.1 for NCIS on CBS.
The Village and New Amsterdam (0.6 each) also came in at season lows for NBC.
Bless This Mess opened with a 0.9 in adults 18-49, ahead of Splitting Up Together‘s season average of 0.7 and the best rating in the time slot with series programming since Oct. 30. The Lake Bell-Dax Shepard comedy also drew 4.64 million viewers, a season high for the time period and nearly 2 million viewers more than Splitting Up Together‘s average.
Lead-in Black-ish (0.8 in 18-49, 3.52 million viewers) hit a five-episode high among adults 18-49 and had its biggest total audience since December. American Housewife (0.8), The Kids Are Alright (0.7) and the season finale of The Rookie (0.7) all ticked up as well.
In addition to having the night’s best demo rating, NCIS was easily the most-watched show of the evening with 11.68 million viewers. FBI (0.9, 8.73 million) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.7, 6.63 million) were fairly steady.
The Flash returned from three weeks off with a 0.6, up a bit from its last episode on The CW. Roswell, New Mexico also improved a little to 0.3. Fox’s Masterchef Junior (0.7) and Mental Samurai (0.5) were even with last week.
CBS topped the network race in primetime, albeit with only a 0.9 average. NBC finished second at 0.8, followed by ABC at 0.7 and Fox at 0.6. The CW and Telemundo tied at 0.4, and Univision drew a 0.3.
