Tuesday TV Ratings: FRESH OFF THE BOAT Makes Decent Tuesday Start; THE FLASH Rises Slightly

     February 11, 2015


The ratings for Tuesday, February 10th are in. Here are some of the highlights:

  • ABC’s new comedy Fresh Off the Boat debuted in its regular Tuesday spot to okay ratings, pulling a 1.7 and 6 million viewers at 8 p.m., and a 1.8 and 5.81 million viewers at 8:30 p.m.
  • It’s a predicable dip for FOB after separating from the push of ABC’s Wednesday comedies, but still better than most Tuesday comedy premieres for the network. The show is also really funny and killin’ it with the 90s references — watch!
  • Despite the middling numbers, FOB actually won the night among comedies: Parks and Rec at 8:30 p.m. on NBC had a 1.0 and 2.45 million viewers (a series low), while New Girl on Fox at 9 p.m. had 1.3 and 2.73 million viewers (almost identical to that of the Mindy Project at 9:30 p.m.; both are essentially steady). NBC’s Marry Me at 9 p.m. and About a Boy at 9:30 both had a 0.8 and 2.15/1.97 respectively, also staying fairly steady.
  • the-flash-image-barry-allen-crazy-for-youOn the CW at 8 p.m., The Flash finally ticked up a tenth from last week, notching a 1.4 and 3.48 million viewers. (You can read Dave’s recap here).
  • Supernatural, at 9 p.m., tied last week’s 0.8 and 2.04 million viewers.
  • CBS’s NCIS: New Orleans crushed ABC’s Agent Carter at 9 p.m. again, despite being slightly down (you can read Evan’s Carter review here). The NCIS spinoff pulled a 2.2 and 15.86 million viewers (the original NCIS at 8 p.m. had 2.8 and 18.56 million — a top rating since the season began), while Agent Carter notched a 1.4 (up a tenth from last week) and 4.2 million viewers.
  • Of note: CBS won the night with an average number of total viewers that was almost as much as all of its competition (ABC, NBC, Fox, CW) combined. (14.6 million vs 15 million). Combined. New possible slogan for them: “we own the night.”
