FOX was the only network to air original primetime programming Tuesday night, as it brought back both of its Tuesday shows, but flipped their time slots.
“Lethal Weapon” aired an hour earlier than it usually does, and scored a 0.7, even with its last episode. “The Gifted,” however, followed it at 9 p.m. by falling two-tenths and hitting a new series low 0.5. Despite this, FOX still tied with NBC for the no. 1 spot of the night in 18-49.
Elsewhere, an 8 p.m. “Ellen’s Game of Games” rerun on NBC won the night with a 1.0. Meanwhile, an encore episode of ABC’s “The Conners” (0.7) tied with “Lethal Weapon” as the night’s second-highest rated broadcast.

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.
