Tuesday night was not a great one for the broadcast networks, with a number of shows falling a little vs. their last episodes.
A couple of bright spots were “NCIS: New Orleans” (2.0) and “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.3), both of which were up a tenth vs. last week. “iZombie” is currently even with the 0.6 in last week’s fast nationals (it adjusted down to 0.5 in the finals).
Now, the bad news: “New Girl” (1.2), “The Grinder” (0.6), “Chicago Med” (1.4) and “Chicago Fire” (1.6) were all down 0.2. “Med” and “The Grinder” hit season lows, and the other two tied their season worsts.
“NCIS” (2.3), “The Flash” (1.5), “Hollywood Game Night” (1.0), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (0.9), “Grandfathered” (0.8) and “The Muppets” (0.8) all fell a tenth vs. last week. A double helping of “Agent Carter” on ABC scored 0.7 for each hour, down from last week’s 0.8.

Late-night metered market ratings to come.
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.
