Tuesday night had the series premiere of ABC's newest Marvel series, Agent Carter. I would label in squarely in the "average" category with its premiere. On the plus side, it was a self-starter and it did better than most recent Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. airings. On the minus side, it lost viewers across the two hours and didn't even match Galavant's premiere numbers despite tons of promotion. While it wasn't a DOA premiere, it seems ripe for a big week two drop to me, but we'll see. It was no help to Forever as that show was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. CBS had a great night as they often do this time of year. At 8pm, NCIS was up 2.3 million viewers and four tenths in the demo. The viewer total is a season high while the demo is the best since premiere week. NCIS: New Orleans was up a huge 3.3 million viewers and six tenths in the demo. This result tied the series premiere numbers in the demo and set an outright high in total viewers. Person of Interest was up 1.2 million viewers and four tenths in the demo. The viewer total is the best since September 30. I'm not sure why but CBS is always very strong across the board in January.

Over on NBC, Marry Me really stunk it up at 9pm. It was down 2.5 million viewers and four tenths in the demo from its last airing, which followed The Voice. Of course it was expected to drop, but there was no interest here as it easily hit a series low. It couldn't even top its lead-in (a Parks and Recreation REPEAT). At 9:30pm, About a Boy was down a million viewers and a tenth in the demo. The good news is it didn't drop as badly and built on Marry in total viewers. But both these shows are goners. NBC announced that it has trimmed About a Boy's episode order by two, down to 20 episodes. At 10pm, Chicago Fire had to be a complete self-starter yet again. It was down six tenths in viewers but even in the demo. It tied Person of Interest in the demo despite having a lead in demo that was 1.7 points lower. FOX had the latest edition of Masterchef Junior and it tied the series high from its fall premiere. At 9pm, New Girl was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while The Mindy Project was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo, tying a series low.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: NCIS: New Orleans (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Marry Me (NBC)
