Tuesday night was solid for NBC and pretty disastrous for everyone else. NBC started with The Voice, and it was 1.5 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for a pretty impressive second week. The rise helped week two of About a Boy jump three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. Not only did it rise from last week (which was an encore of the preview episode), it actually is the best performance for any NBC comedy all season. Retention out of The Voice wasn't great but NBC will certainly take these ratings. At 9:30pm, Growing Up Fisher was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It wasn't a great performance but not horrible either for a show that has a much smaller lead-in. Another impressive showing for the night was Chicago Fire, which was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. This show is doing similar numbers to what it was doing when it had The Voice as a lead-in, so it definitely has its own audience.

On ABC, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. started things off down 1.1 million viewers and four tenths in the demo for a series low. Hard to believe this show premiered to 12.1 million viewers and a 4.7 demo in September. But it's been critically maligned and now it has to face The Voice and NCIS. Will ABC cancel this show? They would certainly prefer not to given its high profile nature but things could definitely get worse once spring gets here. At 9pm, The Goldbergs was down seven tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It had better retention out of Marvel than in the past, however. Come on ABC, move this show to Wednesdays already! At 9:30pm, Trophy Wife was down six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low. If it's fate wasn't already sealed, this should do the trick. Finally at 10pm, week two of Mind Games fell a heavy 1.2 million viewers and half a demo point from its very weak debut. I know ABC has a low threshold for this timeslot but they have to cancel this show, right?

On CBS, NCIS was up nine tenths in viewers but down a tenth in the demo for its worst performance since the season one finale way back on May 25, 2004. This show is getting hurt by The Voice just like it used to be hurt by American Idol. At 9pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was up 1.2 million viewers but down two tenths in the demo for a series low. At 10pm, Person of Interest was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, also hitting a series low. CBS Tuesday is showing some signs of decline. Things are getting real ugly for Glee on FOX as it was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low. Since FOX foolishly already renewed this show, I can't imagine it going anywhere but Friday. At 9pm, New Girl was up a tenth in viewers and the demo while Brooklyn Nine-Nine was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. FOX was better off with Dads leading the night.
