The Tuesday TV ratings for October 27th are in; here are some of the highlights:
- Fox easily won the night with its broadcast of the first game of the World Series, even though a power failure in their production truck caused a short blackout. The extra innings will probably mean its numbers will be adjusted, but so far, it pulled the best ratings (4.6, 15.26 million viewers) in the key 18-49 demographic since 2009.
- Back to scripted TV, NCIS on CBS came in second at 8 p.m. with a 2.0 rating and 16.43 million viewers.
- The Muppets on ABC ticked up at tenth at 8 p.m. to a 1.4 rating and 4.29 million viewers, while The Flash on the CW stayed steady with a 1.3 rating and 3.32 million viewers.
At 8:30 p.m., Fresh Off the Boat was even with last week’s 1.4 rating and 4.05 million viewers.
- The 9 p.m. hour saw NBC’s The Voice take the top slot (though down a tenth) with a 2.5 rating and 9.95 million viewers. NCIS: New Orleans on CBS followed up with a 1.6 rating and 12.95 million viewers.
- ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. dipped a tenth from last week, with a 1.4 rating and 3.83 million viewers, while iZombie gained a tenth to get to a 0.6 rating and 1.51 million viewers.
- At 10 p.m., Chicago Fire led the hour up two tenths with a 1.9 rating and 7.82 millions viewers.
- Limitless on CBS, which was recently ordered for a full season, was up a tenth to a 1.4 rating and 7.55 million viewers.
