On a night filled with fall finales on CBS, ABC and the CW, ABC’s The Conners (1.4, 6.67M viewers) tied NBC’s The Voice (1.4, 8.97M) as Tuesday night’s No. 1 show in the demo. The Conners bumped up week to week for the first time and has been fairly steady the past five weeks.
NBC’s singing competition hung on to 100% of prior-cycle same episode while growing 10% in total viewers, after which NBC finished the night with a 9 PM Darci Lynne: My Hometown Christmas (0.8, 5.96M) and Hollywood Game Night (0.5, 2.67M).
CW three-night superhero crossover concluded with Supergirl (0.7, 2.13M) matching the best that network’s The Flash has done in the Tues 8 PM slot since its season launch. In total viewers, last night’s Supergirl beats every Flash of the season to date. It was easily the season’s biggest Supergirl, eclipsing that show’s season premiere (0.5 / 1.523 million).
The crossover special boosted 9 PM’s Black Lightning (0.4, 1.16M) which ticked up 1/10th from the 0.3 demo rating it clocked in each of its previous five originals.
CBS’s 8 PM NCIS (1.3, 12.15M) was Tuesday’s top scorer in total viewers beating its closest timeslot competitor by more than 3M; it finished 1/10th behind The Conners and The Voice in the demo.
After NCIS, CBS’s FBI (1.0, 8.97M) and NCIS: New Orleans (0.8, 7.68M) won their hours in both metrics.
Following The Conners, ABC’s freshman The Kids Are Alright (0.9, 4.35M) grew in both metrics, after which black-ish (0.8, 3.60M) stayed steady in the demo and hit a four-week best in total viewers. Splitting Up Together (0.7, 2.98M) gained 1/10th in the demo and 2K in total viewers. Network’s 10 PM The Rookie (0.7, 4.22M) repeated previous week’s performance in both metrics.
CBS (1.0, 9.598M) took the night in both metrics. NBC (0.9, 5.867M) and ABC (0.9, 4.341M) tied at No. 2 in the demo. CW (0.6, 2.46M) and Fox (0.4, 1.37M) followed.
