Tuesday evening’s TV ratings are in. Here’s a brief look at the highlights:
- ABC’s Thor: The Dark World “tie-in” episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ticked up one tenth from last week’s series low to a 2.3 rating in the 18-49 demo and scored 6.85 million viewers. Read Evan’s full recap here.
- The swell new Fox comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine also ticked up, earning a 1.5 rating and 3.36 million viewers for a rise of one tenth from last week’s 1.4 rating.
- Elsewhere on Fox, The Mindy Project garnered a season low 1.2 rating and 2.41 million viewers, dropping two tenths from last week’s 1.4 rating.
Hit the jump for the full ratings report for Tuesday, November 19th, including Person of Interest, New Girl, The Goldbergs, Chicago Fire, and more.
Whereas NBC is desperately scrambling for viewers (after falling behind Univision in some recent rankings), CBS, the most dominant of the Big Four networks continues to show its programming stability by renewing almost all of its series, including:
- Freshman Sherlock procedural drama Elementary, starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu
- The excellent series The Good Wife, which has been on the bubble for years (however, with a new syndication deal CBS surely sees more dollar signs and viewers by keeping it on the air)
- Comedies Mike & Molly and 2 Broke Girls
- The many procedurals: NCIS: LA, Person of Interest, The Mentalist, Hawaii Five-0 and Blue Bloods.
Two series that haven’t made the cut yet though are Criminal Minds (because of cast negotiations) and the Dennis Quaid vehicle Vegas, which hasn’t ever seemed to find its audience. For more on these shows (and the ones these nine series join in the ranks of already renewed), hit the jump.
Earlier today I posted an article detailing what CBS will be doing to their schedule this fall. Of course a few hours later, they sent over some clips. So rather than update the article, they’re all after the jump.
Since all the shows are new, I’m including the synopses for each show above the clip. Take a look after the jump:
