Tuesday was a down night across the board on the broadcast networks, with only “NCIS” (2.4) having an above-average night (and even it was down from its crossover-fueled numbers two weeks ago. “NCIS: New Orleans” was in line with its season average with a 1.8 but was down significantly from the 2.4 for its half of the Jan. 5 crossover.

“Agent Carter” premiered its second season to series-low ratings, scoring a 1.0 in adults 18-49 for its first hour and a 0.9 for its second. “Chicago Med” (1.6) and “Limitless” (1.2) each hit season lows, while three of FOX’s four comedies dipped as well. “The Grinder” was flat at 0.8.

“The Flash” (1.3) returned even with its fall finale, but that too tied a season low.

: 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.
