When you look across the board at some of the ratings for Tuesday night, there are a few noticeable trends to take note of. For example, there were many shows that did suffer without having a farewell address from President Obama helping them out; with that, it’s becoming all the clearer what shows are likely coming back and which shows are not.
Unfortunately, there was more bad news for “No Tomorrow” on The CW. With a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and just 600,000 viewers (a decline of over 10% versus the week before), we’re more pessimistic about the show’s future than we were before — and we were pretty pessimistic thing. It’s a fun show, but for whatever reason it never could find an audience on the network beyond those who initially watched.
CBS – “NCIS” scored a 1.9 rating on the night, whereas “Bull” (1.5) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (1.2) also posted some solid / familiar numbers. There were no huge shifts in terms of the ratings versus the week before, but that’s more or less the CBS – “solid as a rock” mantra coming to life. They don’t need things to shift around very much for them to be happy.
Fox – “New Girl” dropped to a 1.0 rating, and without the big lead-in that it had on Sunday, we also saw “The Mick” (1.1) fall pretty significantly. “Bones” also dropped to a 0.8, not that we really expected it to generate some huge numbers in its final season. It’s just getting a chance at this point to air its story out.
ABC – It’s almost a tale of three hours for the network at the moment. While “The Middle” (1.7) and “American Housewife” (1.5) remain very solid entries on the night, the 9:00 p.m. hour of “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.1) and “The Real O’Neals” (0.8) is leaving something to be desired. The failures of “Agents of SHIELD” (0.6) strongly suggest that we could be seeing this series heading off to the TV graveyard now sooner rather than later.
