Masked Scheduler's Ratings Smackdown

I have a feeling that FOX will be renewing "The Mick" pretty soon. Highest rated FOX show on the night in 18-49 and FOX owns it. They need some new comedies. They also need to rethink their Tuesday night for next season. Not only are their comedies hovering around a 1 but they only attract about 2 million total viewers.
On the other hand NBC appears to have a success in "The Wall" and we appear to be in another Game Show moment on the networks.
On my Twitter feed @maskedscheduler I got a question from long time follower @Poetic_line about the short order for "Lucifer." My gut is it had something to do with FOX's desire to get the reimagined "24" on the air post Super Bowl and using that to launch another property in "APB." I know Warner Brothers likes to get a 22 episode order so I assume there was some quid pro quo here like a guaranteed season three.
So here was last night's viewing:
-Wisconsin-Michigan live on ESPN
-"Smackdown" L+SD mostly fast forward but watched the steel cage match between Becky Lynch and Alexa Bliss which was real good.
- "Fresh Off the Boat" L+SD. This show is doing great work.
- "Lethal Weapon" L+13. Masked Wife is a huge fan.
- "Billy on the Street" L+SD
ABC has an original "Fresh of the Boat" leading off tonight's schedule. This could be a test.
Finally think about this: If the new multi-cam "One Day at a Time" was on a broadcast network rather than Netflix would the positive reviews be the same?

“Agents of SHIELD” had a rough outing for ABC Tuesday night, scoring a series low 0.6 rating among adults 18-49 and just barely above 2 million viewers. It was down two tenths of a point vs. last week.

“Fresh Off the Boat” (1.1, -0.3) and “The Real O’Neals” (0.8, -0.2) were also down from their last episodes, but the news wasn’t all bad for ABC. “The Middle” (1.7) and “American Housewife” (1.5) each held steady with last week.

CBS’ “NCIS” rose a tenth to 1.9, while “Bull” and “NCIS: New Orleans” were on par with their last new episodes. “This Is Us” (2.6) was off 0.4 from last week’s season high but still led the night by a comfortable margin. “The Wall” and “Chicago Fire” were steady.

The CW’s “No Tomorrow” bowed out quietly with a 0.2. “New Girl” (1.0) and “Bones” (0.8) were each off a tenth for FOX, while “The Mick” equaled last week’s preliminary 1.1 (it adjusted up to 1.2 in the finals).

Definitions:
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.
