    TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2016

    Household Rating/Share
    CBS: 7.6 rating/12 share, NBC: 4.0/ 6, ABC: 1.9/ 3, Fox and CW: 1.7/ 3 each

    Percent Change From the Year-Ago Week:
    NBC: +60, CBS: -11, CW: -19, ABC: -27, Fox: -37


    “NCIS” (CBS), “The Flash” (CW), “NCIS: New Orleans” (CBS), “Chicago Med” (NBC), “Chicago Fire” (NBC)

    “New Girl” (Fox), “The Muppets” (ABC), “Grandfathered” (Fox), “Marvel’s Agent Carter” (ABC), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (Fox), “The Grinder” (Fox), “iZombie” (CW), “Limitless” (CBS)


    Ratings Breakdown:
    It was another easy Tuesday overnight household victory for CBS, which featured dramas “NCIS” (#1 for the night: 10.8 rating/17 share), spin-off “NCIS: New Orleans” (7.9/12) and “Limitless” (#2: 4.0/ 7). But “Limitless” at 10 p.m. remains the weak link, with erosion of 31 percent from year-ago occupant “Person of Interest” (5.8/10 on 2/17/15) and retention out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of “NCIS: New Orleans” (7.8/12) of just 51 percent. The logical solution would be to put benchwarmer “Person of Interest” back in the hour.

    First at 10 p.m. was NBC’s consistent “Chicago Fire” at a 5.0/ 9, which bested the competition – aforementioned “Limitless” and the second half of a two-hour installment of “Marvel’s Agent Carter” on ABC (1.6/ 3) – by 25 percent and 212 percent, respectively.

    Earlier in the evening on NBC was time period filler “Hollywood Game Night” at a 2.5/ 4 from 8-9 p.m. (#4), which was 39 percent above two episodes of sitcom “Parks and Recreation” on the year-ago evening, followed by freshman “Chicago Med” at a second-place 4.5/ 7 at 9 p.m. Comparably, “Chicago Med” built from “Hollywood Game Night” by a hefty 80 percent.

    Over at The CW, “The Flash” remained consistently solid at a third-place 2.6/ 4 in the 9 p.m. hour but lead-out ‘iZombie” slipped to a 0.9/ 1 at 9 p.m. (#5). The CW, no doubt, could do better here.

    Elsewhere, only sitcom “Fresh Off the Boat” remains an option on ABC Tuesday, with a 3.2/ 5 at 8 p.m. (#2) into a last-place 1.6/ 3 for waiting-to-be axed “The Muppets” at 8:30 p.m. And the aforementioned two-hour installment of time period warmer “Marvels’ Agent Carter” scored a mere 1.7/ 3 in the household overnights from 9-11 p.m.

    Fox, meanwhile, remains a Tuesday mess from start to finish with its sitcom line-up of “New Girl” (#5: 2.1/ 3), “Grandfathered” (#4: 1.7/ 3), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 1.6/ 2) and “The Grinder” (#4: 1.4/ 2).

  • About the Daily Ratings
    Each day (except Sunday) during the main TV Season we post the TV Ratings for the previous nights primetime shows for the major broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, CW, FOX, NBC). Cable Network ratings will be added to the Ratings Database.

    The first item that gets posted (normally around 2pm GMT) is the early overnight analysis based on the early household numbers (these are not the same as the Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers that are posted later).

    Next, if available, we will post the Top 25 Market 18-49 Ratings to give you a rough idea of the ratings to following.

    Later on (normally between 4pm-5pm GMT) we post the official early overnight Total Viewers and 18-49 Demo numbers in the table above (We also where possible now post the 18-34 and 25-54 Demo Numbers).

    Finally, later in the evening (10pm-11pm GMT) or the following day, the final adjusted ratings numbers are released, these are then posted in the Ratings Database. The Final Adjusted numbers are what we use for all our Renew/Cancellation Tables, Full Season Tables, Ratings Scorecards etc (see below). Friday's Final Adjusted Ratings are normally available on the following Monday.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
