“The Flash’s” musical crossover episode didn’t result in much of a ratings boost for the show. The CW series delivered a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49 Tuesday night, even with last week. It did improve slightly in viewers (2.65 million vs. 2.39 million last week). “Legends of Tomorrow” (0.6) was up, beating last week’s 0.5.
At NBC, “Trial & Error” was predictably a lot lower than “This Is Us” in the 9 o’clock hour, but the comedy held up fairly well in its second week. Its two episodes scored 1.2 and 1.1, averaging out fairly close to the 1.4/1.0 for last week’s premiere. “The Voice” (2.2) was off 0.3 from a week ago, and “Chicago Fire” returned from a brief hiatus with a 1.5.
“Bones” (0.8) rose a tenth of a point week to week for FOX, while “New Girl” (0.8) was steady and “The Mick” (also 0.8) came down a tenth. ABC’s comedies and CBS’ dramas were repeats.
|Adults 18-49 rating/share||1.7/6||0.8/3||0.8/3||0.8/3||0.8/3|

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.
