NBC got decent ratings from the premiere of “Rise” Tuesday night. The new series debuted to a 1.3 rating among adults 18-49, in line with “Chicago Med’s” average in the 10 p.m. spot.
“This Is Us” closed its season at the top of the 18-49 ratings, per usual, but its 2.7 was down from a 3.4 for last season’s finale. It was up week to week, however, and on par with its season average (minus the Super Bowl Sunday episode). “The Voice” was up a tenth of a point vs. last week at 2.2.
The night’s other premiere, “For the People” on ABC, earned a 0.8, a little better than the 0.7 average for “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” in the same timeslot. “The Middle” (1.1), “Fresh Off the Boat” (0.9) and “Black-ish” (0.9 and 0.8) were all on the low side.
“The Flash” (0.7) and “Black Lightning” (0.5) both held steady on The CW, as did “NCIS” (1.4) on CBS and FOX’s comedies “LA to Vegas” (0.7) and “The Mick” (0.6). “Bull” was off a tenth at 1.1 for CBS, but “NCIS: New Orleans” ticked up to 1.0.

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.
