NBC’s new drama “Game of Silence” got off to a decent start Tuesday with a 1.5 rating in adults 18-49. That matches the demo rating for “Chicago Fire” in the timeslot last week, albeit without “The Voice” (which scored a 2.2) as a direct lead-in.

“Game of Silence” moves to its regular home on Thursday. The last drama to premiere after “The Voice,” “Heartbeat,” fell half a point (1.4 to 0.9) in its time-period debut.

The season finale of “iZombie,” meanwhile, scored a 0.5, as did the new episode preceding it. Both were up over last week’s 0.4, and the finale was even with last season’s closer.

The just-renewed “New Girl” (1.1) rose two tenths vs. its last episode for FOX, while “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (0.9) and “The Grinder” (0.6) were both even with their most recent outings. “Agents of SHIELD” improved a tenth over last week to 1.0.

Network averages:

: 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.
