by     Posted 1 year, 80 days ago


Tuesday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • After last week’s record-breaking debut, ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. lost a third of its audience and dropped a whopping 34% to a 3.1 rating in the 18-49 demo and 8.4 million viewers.  That’s a steep decline in viewership from last week’s 4.7 rating, but not altogether surprising given the lukewarm overall reception to the pilot.  Read Evan’s recap of last night’s episode here.
  • Fox’s comedies took yet another dive, as the new series Brooklyn Nine-Nine hit a 1.4 rating and 3.42 million viewers for a 22% drop and New Girl garnered a 1.9 rating and 3.89 million viewers for a 10% drop.
  • Over at NBC, Chicago Fire scored an impressive 2.8 rating in the demo and 9 million viewers for a rise of 4% over last week’s 2.7 season premiere rating.

Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Tuesday, October 1st, including NCIS, The Mindy Project, Person of Interest, and more.

  • On the flipside, ABC’s comedy lineup benefited from S.H.I.E.L.D.’s massive take with new series The Goldbergs hitting a 3.2 rating and 9.1 million viewers.
