The return of “Prison Break” after eight years away put up decent numbers for FOX Tuesday. Its 1.5 rating among adults 18-49 tied “NCIS” for the top scripted show of the night and was second overall behind “The Voice” (1.9, down 0.2 vs. last week).
The season premiere of “iZombie” didn’t fare quite as well. It returned to a 0.4 on The CW, down from a 0.7 for its Season 2 debut in fall 2o15 (which had a “Flash” lead-in) and off a tenth from its finale last season. The finale of “Legends of Tomorrow” scored a 0.6, on par with its season average.
Elsewhere, “Agents of SHIELD” came back from hiatus to a 0.7 for ABC, up a tenth from its last episode. The network’s comedies were all on the low side, and “Imaginary Mary” debuted in its regular home to a 0.9, even with “The Real O’Neals'” performance earlier in the season.
The finale of “New Girl” (0.9) held steady with last week on FOX, but “The Mick” was down a tenth at 0.8. “Bull” held at 1.3 for CBS. “NCIS: New Orleans’ (1.0) and “Chicago Fire” (1.3) each came down a tenth.

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.
