During the 8 o’clock hour, ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returned up from its most recent original 3 weeks ago (on 1/14/14) in Total Viewers (+2%) and paced within 1-tenth of a rating point in Adults 18-49, taking second to CBS’ top-rated NCIS on both measures.  In addition, the ABC freshman drama won its slot by 23% over NCIS in Men 18-34 (1.6/6 vs. 1.3/5) to hold the #1 series position in the hour for its 13th straight first-run telecast.   In fact, S.H.I.E.L.D. finished as the #1 TV show on Tuesday with Men 18-34 for its 6th consecutive original airing.

Killer Women (10-11pm – 3.1 million and 0.7/2 in AD18-49):

During the 10 o’clock hour, ABC’s Killer Women held steady with its most recent airing two weeks ago in Adults 18-49.

    “ABC freshman comedy defeated Fox’s Super Bowl-promoted New Girl” oh ABC you guys are amazing at your post. The people who write these press releases should actually write a show for the ABC, they might get some views

    Tuesday comedies are just sad. Not quite as sad as NBC Thursdays but still.

  • Matthew

    Nice for Goldbergs

  • It depends on what fails

    ABC press releases = gold.

    Only NBC Thursday PRs are better.

  • Dan S

    It is rather ironic to see Goldbergs beat NG after it’s post SB appearance. I watch NG, just saying.

  • Jared

    New Girl getting beat by The Goldbergs is pretty sad considering over 20+ viewers watched after the Super Bowl a few days ago. Good for The Goldbergs. Favorite new comedy this season.
