Was it the crappy weather back east? Ratings hovered around a 1 on Tuesday night for most broadcast shows. The saddest performance came from Killer Women, ABC’s new drama that only cracked a .7 in 18-49, according to Nielsen. That’s actually flat from last week but a pink slip is sure to come soon, right?
Let’s start with the night’s winner. NBC squeaked to the top with a 1.9, thanks to decent shows by The Biggest Loser (1.9 from 8-10) — up 12% from last week — and the hunks on Chicago Fire (1.8 at 10). The women of our great nation thank you, NBC, for giving me a reason to post the above photo.
Fox was second in the demo with a 1.7, with a decent show by comedies Dad (1.5), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.9), New Girl (1.8) and The Mindy Project (1.5/4).
CBS and repeats of the NCIS shows came in third with a 1.5. ABC trailed with a rerun of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (.9), which ended up sucking for The Goldbergs (1.5, down 17% from last week) and Trophy Wife (1.0, a series low).
But lookee here at Supernatural! Last night’s episode was the series’ most watched (2.7) in more than three years. The boys were also up 22% in viewers from last week, as well as up 10% in women 18-34 (1.1/3) and adults 18-49 (1.1/3). It even out-rated the originals on ABC in the 9 p.m. hour.
