Ratings: ‘Game of Silence’ has so-so start; ‘Agents of SHIELD,’ ‘iZombie’ finale rise

In some ways, Tuesday night’s television lineup was reasonably quiet. There was not a plethora of new programming that aired, but for the ones that did manage to come on, there are a few interesting stories to report on.

The good news – Let’s start with NBC and “Game of Silence,” which got off to what we’d consider to be an acceptable start in a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Here’s the big challenge: Convincing the majority of these people to go over to Thursday nights and continue to watch the show there. This was a one-off airing that followed “The Voice” (2.2) as a means to get a better rating.

Elsewhere, “Agents of SHIELD” recovered from its most-recent outing to post a 1.0 rating, though we shudder at the idea of this being a great rating now. It just looks like it in comparison to what we’ve seen it get as of late. The finale of “iZombie” also rose to a 0.5 over the course of its two hours, which is something that The CW is likely satisfied with. It’s already been renewed for a third season, so there’s really nothing to be worried about here regardless.

The bad news – We’ve already mentioned “The Voice,” and the 2.2 is a small drop from its most-recent Tuesday outing. There’s not a whole lot else you can get into here unless you really want to nitpick, and say that the 0.9 rating for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is down when we’re talking about a really minuscule drop.
