Two new series premiered on Tuesday night and the results were quite different. CBS got good news from Intelligence. But first, NCIS was up 1.1 million viewers and a tenth in the demo. The viewership total was a season high for NCIS which continues to be as strong as ever. CBS wisely used its most powerful drama lead-in for its new show as Intelligence premiered to strong numbers. The viewer total was the highest for any new show this season while the demo was a respectable 2.4. Now the test comes on Monday where it must face The Blacklist and Castle with a lower lead-in. But still, this is a good start. At 10pm, Person of Interest was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo.

The news was not nearly as good for ABC and their new show. But first on the alphabet network, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, The Goldbergs was up half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo for its best numbers since November 12. More importantly for Goldbergs is it beat New Girl head to head for the first time since the second week of the season. At 9:30pm, Trophy Wife was up three tenths in viewers but down a tenth in the demo despite the lead-in being up. The worst news came at 10pm where Killer Women was DOA with a measly 4.0 million and 0.9 demo. It was well below the 1.3 demo that Lucky 7 premiered to in September and that show got yanked after two weeks. Also if you don't count ABC's own limited series The Assets last week then Women ties NBC's Do No Harm from last January for the lowest rated in-season premiere ever. I wonder if ABC will stick with this show for eight weeks, it seems hard to believe they will.

NBC had its first new Tuesday without The Voice. A two hour edition of The Biggest Loser was down 1.5 million viewers and three tenths in the demo. The news was better for Chicago Fire. Though it was down 2.3 million viewers, it was only down two tenths in the demo with a lead-in that was 1.4 demo points lower. Consider this a win for Fire as it has its own solid audience. Over on FOX, Dads was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It was actually the top FOX show in terms of total viewers. Brooklyn Nine-Nine was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. New Girl had a horrible night as it fell three tenths in viewers and the demo for a new series low. This show is starting to fall apart as it was behind the 8pm comedies in viewers and just a tenth ahead of them in the demo. At 9:30pm, The Mindy Project was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.
