Tuesday’s ratings were not pretty for the broadcast networks, as a number of shows fell in the ratings, some by sizable margins.
“The Voice” recorded an all-time low among adults 18-49 for a regular episode with a 1.2 rating. “Roseanne,” although it still led the night, fell nine tenths of a point from its last original episode to 2.5. “The Middle” (1.5) was off half a point, and “Lethal Weapon” (0.7) came down two tenths.
“Rise” (0.7), the season finale of “LA to Vegas” (0.5) and “New Girl” (0.5) each dropped a tenth vs. last week’s fast nationals (“LA to Vegas” adjusted up in the finals).
Two shows, “Splitting Up Together” (1.1) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.9), rose a tenth from their last originals. “NCIS,” “Bull,” “The Flash” and “The 100” were all steady, and “Chicago Med” was even with last week’s preliminary 0.9; it adjusted up in the finals.

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.
