Tuesday night was another good one for NBC as three of the four shows were up from last week. At 8pm, The Voice was down two tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. The best news came in the 9pm hour where About a Boy was up a tenth in viewers and the demo while Growing Up Fisher was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. NBC needed these shows to stabilize and they did while facing a new NCIS: Los Angeles as opposed to a repeat last week. I think Growing Up Fisher is even more impressive because it has less of the halo effect from The Voice. Say what you want about its lead-in but these numbers are good enough to get renewals with the state of NBC's comedy. At 10pm, Chicago Fire was down two tenths in viewers but even in the demo. The good news is it held steady even when it had to face a new Person of Interest in the hour this week.

CBS was new again after a week of repeats. At 8pm, NCIS was down eight tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. For the second week in a row, it hit its lowest number since the season one finale back in May 2004. At 9pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was down two tenths in viewers but up two tenths in the demo as it had excellent retention out of the mothership. I think next year is the year this show finally moves to a new slot, but I've been wrong about that the last couple years so who knows. At 10pm, Person of Interest was up three tenths in viewers but even in the demo. This show has had weak numbers the last couple weeks. I'm not really sure why but we'll see how the rest of the season goes for this one to see if it's the start of a bad trend.

On ABC, a Marvel special was lower than the usual Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. numbers. However, once again The Goldbergs proved it has an entirely different audience as it was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since January 14. This show is absolutely coming back next year. At 9:30pm, Trophy Wife was up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Mind Games slipped back again as it fell three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The 100th episode of Glee gave it an ever so slight bump as it was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. What a weak show this is now. A repeat of New Girl took Brooklyn Nine-Nine down to a new series low as it was even in viewers but dropped a tenth in the demo.
