Total Viewers:
CBS: 6.58 million, NBC: 3.34, ABC: 2.61, Fox: 1.23, CW: 946,000
Adults 18-49:
CBS and NBC: 0.6 rating/4 share, ABC: 0.4/ 3, Fox: 0.2/ 2, CW: 0.2/ 1
In series premiere news, The CW drama “Naomi” had some sampling with 804,000 viewers (#5) and a 0.1 rating/1 share in adults 18-49 in the Tuesday 8 p.m. ET hour. This is above averaged for The CW. And it led out of the season premiere of “Superman & Lois”, which scored 1.09 million viewers (#5) and a 0.2/ 2 in adults 18-49 (#4t) at 8 p.m. You don’t see a CW series breaking 1-million viewers all that often.
Tops for the night in adults 18-49 was NBC’s “This Is Is”, which scored a 0.9/ 7 at 9 p.m. (with 4.87 million total viewers at 9 p.m. – #2) and building significantly out of the two recently introduced lead-in sitcoms as follows:
NBC/Tuesday
8:00 p.m. – “American Auto”
Viewers: 2.43 million (#3); A18-49: 0.5/ 4 (#3)
8:30 p.m. – “Grand Crew”
Viewers: 1.74 million (#3); A18-49: 0.4/ 3 (#3)
NBC capped off the night with medical drama “New Amsterdam” (Viewers: 3.06 million; A18-49: 0.4/ 4 at 10 p.m.), which finished second at 10 p.m. behind CBS’ “FBI: Most Wanted” (Viewers: 5.44 million; A18-49: 0.5/ 4) and was well above “Queens” on ABC (Viewers: #3, 1.15 million; A18-49: #3, 0.2/ 2).
In week two news was ABC gaveler “Steve Harvey’s Court” at a respectable 4.29 million viewers (#2) and a 0.6/ 5 in adults 18-49 (#2) in the Tuesday 8 p.m. hour. This new entry is here to stay, as is newbie comedy lead-out “Abbott Elementary”, which held the demo lead-in at a 0.6/ 4 (with 2.84 million viewers – #3) in the 9 p.m. half-hour. Next was soon-to-conclude “black-ish” at 1.90 million viewers (#3) and a 0.4/ 3 in adults 18-49 (#3) at 9:30 p.m.
Elsewhere, “FBI” on CBS led the night in total viewers, with 8.18 million at 8 p.m. (and a dominant 0.7/ 5 in the demo at 8 p.m.). And it led into compatible freshman spin-off “FBI: International” (Viewers: #1, 6.12 million; A18-49: #2t, 0.5/ 4 at 9 p.m.).
Fox, meanwhile, featured a repeat of “9-1-1: Lone Star” into failing drama “Ordinary People” (Viewers: #4, 1.10 million; A18-49: #4, 0.3/ 2 at 9 p.m.), which is unlikely to see a second season.
