Valentine’s Day is often a night of lower TV viewing than average, and that looks to be the case for several shows Tuesday.
“This Is Us” (2.4 rating in adults 18-49) led the night per usual but was down 0.2 vs. last week. Three of ABC’s four comedies — “American Housewife” (1.4), “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.0) and “The Real O’Neals” (0.8) — were off a little bit as well, while “The Middle” and “Agents of SHIELD” were even with last week. The CW opted for a special and a “Flash” rerun rather than airing original programming.
CBS was up week to week thanks to improvements by “NCIS” (1.8, +0.1) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (1.2, +0.2), which aired a two-part crossover. “Bull” held steady at 1.3. “Bones” ticked up a tenth to 0.8 on FOX, while “New Girl” and “The Mick” matched their numbers from last week.
NBC’s “The Wall” slipped a tenth to 1.4, and “Chicago Fire” was even with last week’s 1.5.

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.
