“Jeopardy! The Greatest of All Time” opened with some big numbers Tuesday night.

The first installment of the ABC limited series raked in a massive 2.4 rating in the adults 18-48 demo and a 14.37 million viewer audience. Those kinds of numbers not only put “Jeopardy!” at the top of Tuesday’s primetime ratings, but also make it ABC’s second-highest-rated entertainment broadcast of the season so far, behind only “The Little Mermaid Live!” (2.6).

The show’s success also impacted the rest of ABC’s primetime shows. “Mixed-ish” hit a series high 1.1 rating at 9 p.m., and “Black-ish” (0.8) and “Emergence” (0.5) both managed to tick up from their previous outings.

Elsewhere, CBS’ “NCIS” returned from the holiday break with the same 1.0 rating as its last episode, while “FBI” (0.9) returned one-tenth above its most recent episode. The series premiere of “FBI: Most Wanted” capped off the night for the network with a pretty good 0.8 rating – losing only a tenth of its “FBI” lead-in’s demo rating. “Most Wanted” also raked in the largest audience of any regular series premiere so far this season (7.19 million viewers).

On NBC, “Ellen’s Game of Games” kicked off its newest season with a pair of back-to-back episodes, which grabbed 1.0 and 1.1 ratings, respectively. That puts “Game of Games” down a bit from its second season’s 1.4 average last year. At 10 p.m., the special preview airing of the “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” premiere posted only a 0.6 rating with 2.69 million viewers. The freshman series will return with its second episode on Feb. 16.

FOX’s “The Resident” also returned from the holiday break, and held steady with its previous outing’s 0.7 rating. The season premiere of “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back” followed it with a 0.7 of its own, and a 2.54 million viewer audience.

Network averages:

Adults 18-49 rating/share 1.2/6 0.9/4 0.9/4 0.7/3 0.1/1
Total Viewers (millions) 6.87 8.92 3.90 3.13 0.51



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.
