The season finale of “Black Lightning” held steady for The CW Tuesday night. “Roseanne” was also steady for ABC, but a tryout of “Alex, Inc.” afterward didn’t go so great.
“Black Lightning” drew a 0.5 rating among adults 18-49, even with last week (and the seven episodes before that). “The Flash” was also steady at 0.6.
“Roseanne” scored a 3.4, even with last week’s fast nationals (it adjusted up in the finals). “Alex, Inc.” followed with a 1.2, up from its last Wednesday airing (0.9) bet well behind the 1.9 for “The Middle” in the spot last week. The softer lead-in also drove down “Black-ish” (1.1, -0.2) and “Splitting Up Together” (1.0, -0.2). “For the People” held at 0.6.
“The Voice” (1.5) fell three tenths of a point vs. its last regular airing two weeks ago (last week was a clip show). “Rise” stayed at 0.8 for NBC, and “Chicago Med” rose a tenth to 1.2.
“NCIS” hit a series low 1.1 on CBS, and “Bull” (1.1) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.8) were each down a tenth from their last episodes. “Lethal Weapon,” “LA to Vegas” and “New Girl” all dipped a tenth vs. last week for FOX.

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.
