Broadcast primetime live + same-day ratings for Tuesday, May 17, 2016

Time Show Adults 18-49 Rating/Share Viewers (millions)
8 p.m. NCIS (CBS) – F 2.5/9 17.62
The Voice (NBC) 1.8/6 8.90

Person of Interest (CBS) 1.1/4 7.10

 

The season finale of “NCIS” — and Michael Weatherly’s final episode of the series — led Tuesday’s broadcast ratings across the board for CBS. It scored a 2.5 in adults 18-49, tying its second-best number of the season. The finale of “NCIS: New Orleans” (1.8) was up a tenth vs. last week.

FOX’s heavily hyped “Megyn Kelly Presents” special and its Donald Trump interview didn’t draw very well, averaging 0.8 in the demo. The premiere of “Coupled” managed only a 0.5, tying The CW’s “Containment” for the lowest mark of the night.

ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.1, +0.2) and the two-hour “Agents of SHIELD” finale (1.0, +0.1) were both up over last week. NBC was steady across the board with “The Voice” (1.8) and the finales of “Chicago Med” and “Chicago Fire” (each 1.6). “The Flash” also held steady for The CW with a 1.3.

Network averages:

CBS NBC ABC CW FOX
Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.8/6 1.7/6 1.0/4 0.9/3 0.6/2
Total Viewers (millions) 12.63 8.18 3.27 2.37 3.30

 

Late-night metered market ratings (adults 18-49, households):

11:35 p.m.

“The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”: 0.8/4, 2.5/7

“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”: 0.4/3, 2.1/5

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” – R: 0.4/2, 1.4/4

12:35 a.m.

“Nightline”: 0.3/2, 1.0/3

“The Late Late Show with James Corden”: 0.2/2, 1.0/4

Note: An earlier version of this post and headline saying “NCIS” tied its season high was incorrect. The show tied its second-highest 18-49 rating of the season.

Definitions:
Rating
: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. 
Share (of Audience): 
The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. 
Time Shifted Viewing:
 Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include  viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
