Ratings Breakdown:
It was a clean household overnight sweep for CBS on this second March Tuesday care of “NCIS” (#1 for the night: 7.9 rating/13 share at 8 p.m.), “FBI” (6.1/10 at 9 p.m.) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (4.9/ 9 at 10 p.m.). But the two-hour season finale of “The Bachelor” (subtitled “After the Final Rose”) scored a season-high 6.0/10 from 8-10 p.m., which should be enough for ABC to dominate the evening in adults 18-49.
The series premiere of ABC’s “Videos After Dark,” hosted by Bob Saget, however, was left at the starting gate with a 2.0/ 3 in households at 10 p.m. Comparably, that trailed CBS’ aforementioned “NCIS: New Orleans” (#1: 4.9/ 9) and “New Amsterdam” on NBC (#2: 4.2/ 8) by 59 percent and 52 percent, respectively. Saget, of course, was the original host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos.”
Earlier in the evening on NBC was “Ellen’s Game of Games” (#3: 3.4/ 6) and tearjerker “This Is Us” (#3: 5.7/10) from 8-10 p.m.
In season premiere news was “MasterChef Junior” on Fox at a modest 2.1/ 4 from 8-10 p.m. Next Tuesday, “MasterChef Junior” debuts into new game show “Mental Samurai.” And The CW was at typical Tuesday overnight levels care of “The Flash” (#5: 1.2/ 2 at 8 p.m.) and “Roswell, New Mexico” (#5: 0.7/ 1 at 9 p.m.).
