The Tuesday TV ratings for March 10th are in, here are some of the highlights:

  • Apparently the Daylight Savings hangover continues, and almost all series were down again on Tuesday night (5% overall). But thanks to The Voice at 8 p.m., NBC managed to notch a huge win among adults for the night, while CBS won with total viewers. The Voice, though down slightly, pulled a 3.6 rating in the key demographic, and 13.26 million viewers.
  • NCIS on CBS took second place at 8 p.m., with a 2.1 rating in the 18-49 demo, but 15.72 million viewers. That’s down to a series low regarding the rating, and was mirrored by its spinoff NCIS: New Orleans at 9 p.m., which garnered a 1.6 and 12.25 million viewers.
  • ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat sank (see what I did there?) two tenths to a 1.5 and 5.06 million viewers also at 8 p.m., but it’s still holding on so far against tough competition.
  • At 9 p.m., Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (read Evan’s recap here) earned a series low 1.4 rating and 3.73 million viewers. Too little too late, as far as the series finally picking up, or still hiatus return / DLS-related viewership woes?
  • It was a night of many reruns, but new episodes struggled with ratings regardless. The Mindy Project on Fox at 9:30 p.m. hit a series low 0.9 and 1.79 million viewers, although Chicago Fire on NBC at 10 p.m. stayed steady at 2.1 and 8.56 million viewers. We’ll see if this rut affects Empire on Wednesday — if any show can shake viewers awake, it will be that one!
