For Tuesday, November 3, 2015 (Posted on November 4, 2015)

CBS #1 Tuesday as 'NCIS' was the top program with over 17 million viewers.

CBS #1 Tuesday as ‘NCIS’ was the top program with over 17 million viewers.


The Tiffany Network dominated Tuesday with its quality dramas, scheduled to perfection. At 8P, the incomparable ‘NCIS’, the world’s most watched drama, did not disappoint Tuesday as with an episode titled ’16 Years’ finished with a huge 17.775 million viewers as Gibbs helped Abbey escape from a mistake that was made 16 years previous. It was easily #1 in the time slot and #1 for the evening on all of television. It is always a Must See TV ON DEMAND series. At 9P, ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ finished with an average 14.03 million viewers. It should be noted that it did loose 1 million viewers in the second half hour. At 10P, ‘Limitless’ finished with an average 7.835 million viewers, winning the first half hour but falling behind ‘Chicago Fire’ in the second half hour. But it was sensational as it was a Must See TV ON DEMAND episode.


The Peacock Network began with a whimper but finished with a bang. At 7P, ‘Best Time Ever with Neil Patrick Harris’ season finale finished with an average 4.995 million viewers, more than 12+ million viewers behind the leading program. At 8P, ‘The Voice’ clip show finished with an average 8.15 million viewers as it began to eat at the second half of ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ lead. At 10P, ‘Chicago Fire’ with a terrific episode featuring not only the potential loss of ‘Molly’s bar, but with the life of one of its own, made it to the top. It finished with an average 8.08 million viewers, ranking #1 in its time slot, with a strong second half hour. This is a Must See TV ON DEMAND episode. This strategy by the 30 Rock crew is working as it is eating away at the bottom half of the line up of CBS and winning the last half of prime time on a night Tiffany used to dominate completely.


The Alphabet Network didn’t do well on Tuesday. At 8P, ‘The Muppets’ finished with an average 4.55 million viewers. Then at 830P, ‘Fresh Off The Boat’ finished with an average 4.40 million viewers. At 9P, ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’ finished with an average 3.83 million viewers. Then at 10P, ‘Wicked City’ with its second episode continued the downward trend with an average of 2.44 million viewers, finishing at the bottom of the barrel on this Tuesday evening.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t Absolutely DID on this Tuesday evening. At 8P, ‘The Flash’ finished #4 in its time slot with an average 3.73 million viewers. Then at 9P, ‘iZombie’ finished with an average 1.59 million viewers. ‘The Flash’ is anything but as it is now a strong contender on this night’s schedule.


The Animal Network of Broadcast simply didn’t have the power nor the programming as it slipped into the #5 position on Tuesday. At 8P, ‘Grandfathered’ finished with an average 3.17 million viewers. At 830P, ‘The Grinder’ finished with an average 2.55 million viewers. Then at 9P, ‘Scream Queens’ finished with an average 2.44 million viewers.

For The Record

The CW finished with an average 2.66 million viewers. FOX finished with an average 2.65 million viewers. Univision finished with an average 1.70 million viewers and a 1.2/2.

Across The Pond


The Independent One finished #1 Tuesday in the UK. At 8P, ‘Eternal Glory’ finished with an average 1.49 million viewers (7.0%). The at 9P, ‘Lewis’ ​topped the ratings overall outside soaps with an average 3.66 million viewers (17.4%).


The Big One did not do well on Tuesday as its top program was at 9P, when ‘River’ ​continued with an average 2.65 million viewers (12.6%).


The Little Two had a unique approach on Tuesday as it attempted to recreate the success of ‘The Great British Bake Off’. But it ​didn’t exactly work out that way. First at 8P, ‘Autumnwatch’ finished with an average 2.40 million viewers, a strong opening salvo. But at 8P, ‘The Great Pottery Throw Down’ could only ​attract an average overnight audience of 1.88 million viewers (9.0%). Time to watch the leaves fall again. Wonder if one can do that for the entire evening? If you are BBC Two, you probably can. But pottery? Let’s watch paint dry.

Channel 4

The Big Four had no pottery nor paint. But at 8P, it did have ‘The Secret Life of 4-Year-Olds’ (can it get any worse?) and it finished with an average ​2.19 million viewers (10.3%) (Didn’t Art Linkletter do this half a century ago?). At 9P, ’24 Hours in A&E’ finished with an average 1.98 million viewers (9.4%). At 10P, ‘Catastrophe’ finished ​with an average 781,000 viewers (4.9%).

Channel 5

The Viacom Five at 8P presented the documentary ‘Pets Who Hate Vets’ and it drew an average 1.37 million viewers (6.5%) and finished as the network’s high water mark on Tuesday. Yikes! At 9P, ‘Eamonn and Ruth’s How the Other Half Live’ ​was seen by 1.22 million viewers (5.8%). Then at 10P, CBS’ ‘CSI: Cyber’ finished with an average 580,000 viewers (3.8%).


Murdoch’s Bird at 8P presented The CW’s ‘The Flash’ and it finished with an average 473,000 viewers (2.2%). At 9P, it was followed by ‘The Moaning of Life’ ​with an average 415,000 viewers (2.0%).


Music TV at 10P presented ‘Geordie Shore’ who ​entertained 370,000 viewers (2.5%). It was definitely better than paint drying.
