    TUESDAY MARCH 29, 2016

    Household Rating/Share
    NBC: 6.2 rating/10 share, CBS: 4.8/ 8, ABC: 2.2/ 4, CW: 1.7/ 3, Fox: 1.3/ 2

    Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
    NBC: +63, CW: -15, ABC: -27, CBS: -34, Fox: -43


    Ratings Breakdown:
    With “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans” in repeats, it was a clean Tuesday household overnight sweep for NBC. “The Voice” topped the night at a 7.4 rating/12 share from 8-9 p.m., followed by freshman hit “Chicago Med” (5.7/ 9) and “Chicago Fire” (5.6/10) from 9-11 p.m. Comparably, this was the first original telecast of “Chicago Med” in five weeks and it grew by 27 percent versus its prior telecast (4.4/ 7 on Feb. 23). “Chicago Fire,” meanwhile, had its best overnight household rating since Dec. 8 (6.0/11). Yes…there is every reason to believe there will be a fourth series – “Chicago Law” – in the mix next season. For more on NBC’s strategy, click here

    On CBS, the aforementioned “NCIS” (#2: 6.3/10) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (#2: 5.3/ 8) encores led into 10 p.m. special “The Late Late Show Primetime Karaoke Primetime Special” at a second-place 2.9/ 5. While that trailed NBC’s competing “Chicago Fire” by 48 percent, it did beat “Beyond the Tank” on ABC (#3: 1.5/ 3) by 93 percent.

    Earlier in the evening on ABC were sitcoms “Fresh Off the Boat” (#3: 3.2/ 5 at 8 p.m.) and recently introduced “The Real O’Neals” (#3: 2.6/ 4 at 8:30 p.m.) into “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” at a modest 2.2/ 4 (#3) from 9-10 p.m. With 81 percent overnight household retention out of “Fresh Off the Boat,” my prediction is a second season renewal for “The Real O’Neals.”

    Elsewhere, “The Flash” on The CW scored a healthy 2.4/ 4 from 8-9 p.m. (#3) into a weak 1.0/ 2 for ‘iZombie” at 9 p.m. (#5). Personally, I am not sure The CW made the right move renewing “iZombie” for next season. And Fox was off the charts with its comedy line-up of “New Girl” (#5: 1.7/ 3), a repeat of “Grandfathered” (#5: 1.0/ 2), “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#4: 1.5/ 2) and an encore telecast of “The Grinder” (#4t: 0.9/ 1). Of the four, only “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has been officially renewed for 2016-17.

  • 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.
