Tuesday Ratings Scorecard: CBS and ABC Split Leadership; ‘The Conners’ Tops the ABC Sitcom Quartet

What follows are the fast affiliate rating results for Tuesday, October 8, 2019. These results are time period based and are subject to change:

Total Viewers:
CBS: 8.78 million, NBC: 6.99, ABC: 3.70, Fox: 3.24, CW: 1.37
Adults 18-49:
NBC: 1.3 rating/6 share, CBS: 0.9/ 4, Fox: 0.8/ 4, ABC: 0.7/ 3, CW: 0.5/ 2
Key Observations:
-“The Conners” remains ABC’s highest rated sitcom.
-ABC’s “Black-ish” featured a reunion of the cast from former UPN sitcom “Girlfriends.”
-“NCIS” on CBS and NBC’s “The Voice” continue to share dominance in the Tuesday 8 p.m. hour.
-The season premiere of “The Flash” on The CW did not disappoint (nor did an encore of the pilot episode of “Batwoman” immediately following).
-Dick Wolf’s “FBI” has years of shelf life ahead on CBS.
-NBC’s “This Is Us” has rebounded from the stranger-populated season opening episode two weeks ago. The ratings remain rock solid.
-Fox was wise to end “Empire” this season.
-Fox medical drama “The Resident” pales in comparison to “9-1-1” in the Monday 8 p.m. lead-off spot.
-ABC’s freshman “Emergence” remains a distant third at 10 p.m. behind “NCIS: New Orleans” on CBS and NBC’s sophomore “New Amsterdam.”
