Tuesday was not a particularly great night for the broadcast networks, though there were a few bright spots. “NCIS” (1.4 rating among adults 18-49) and “Bull” (1.2) each improved on their last episodes and helped CBS lead the night — the network tied NBC in the 18-49 demo and was an easy winner in total viewers. “NCIS: New Orleans” was down o.1 at 1.0
“The Middle” hit a series-low 1.1 for ABC (it’s already been renewed), and “Imaginary Mary” (0.7) was down a tenth of a point vs. last week. “American Housewife,” “Fresh Off the Boat” and “Agents of SHIELD,” however, all held steady.
NBC’s new comedy “Great News” (0.8/0.6) took a hit in its second week, with both episodes down 0.4 vs. a week ago. “The Voice” (1.6, -0.2) and “Chicago Fire” (1.2, -0.1) were also down.
“Prison Break” was steady at 0.9 for FOX, but both “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (0.6) and the season finale of “The Mick” (0.7) were off a tenth from last week’s early ratings (“The Mick” adjusted up in the finals). “The Flash” and “iZombie” were even with last week on The CW.

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.
