It was black Tuesday for many newbies but none more so than ABC's brand new Tuesday lineup which saw huge drops from last week. It started with Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. which plunged 3.4 million viewers and 1.4 demo points from its huge series premiere last week. While a 3.3 demo is still great, a huge drop like this seems to signify that it is not done dropping and the entire night could unravel if it continues the trend. That is already starting to happen as the shows that followed all took big drops as well. The Goldbergs was down 2.8 million viewers and nine tenths in the demo while Trophy Wife had a worst drop percentage wise as it was down 2.4 million viewers and also nine tenths in the demo. These comedies are starting to look like the Go On and The New Normal of this year. At 10pm, Lucky 7 fell 1.8 million viewers and six tenths in the demo to a horrible 0.7 demo. This is the same demo that got Do No Harm cancelled after two weeks on NBC last season. This has to be the last we've seen of Lucky 7, right?

NBC had the best night of the four networks as The Voice was up a tenth in viewers and down two tenths in the demo while Chicago Fire was down two tenths in viewers and just a tenth in the demo. This lineup has been impressive so it'll be interesting to see how The Biggest Loser does when it returns to 8pm next week leading into The Voice. CBS had pretty good holds for its veteran drama lineup. At 8pm, NCIS was even in viewers and down just a tenth in the demo. It will benefit if Marvel continues to fall plus next week it won't have to face The Voice anymore. At 9pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was down 1.3 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. At 10pm, Person of Interest was even in viewers but down two tenths in the demo.

It was a rough night for FOX as none of its comedies managed four million viewers or a 2.0 demo. The 8pm hour is having real problems now as Dads was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to a low 1.3. Brooklyn Nine-Nine had a worse drop as it was down six tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo. At 9pm, New Girl was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It tied a series low from  last year which isn't a good sign for this season. At 9:30pm, The Mindy Project was actually even with last week. The good news is it didn't drop like the others and it beat the competing Trophy Wife. The bad news it is a low 1.5 demo.
