On Tuesday night, NBC had a great evening with its new Tuesday lineup. At 8pm, The Voice was up a strong 2.1 million viewers and half a demo point. It led to a very strong third week for Chicago Med, which was up a big 2.3 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. It's worth noting that the 9.9 million viewers for Med topped anything Chicago Fire and Chicago PD have ever done. This show is definitely finding an audience. At 10pm, Chicago Fire was up 1.3 million viewers and a tenth in the demo. NBC benefited from CBS being in repeats and it definitely got some of its viewers. It was CBS' turn for a classic holiday special. Their airing of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer delivered solid ratings as always, but it was well below the last couple years. It aired a week earlier this year so that may have played a factor. Still, it's 2.4 demo topped everything on the networks except The Voice.

As usual, it was an ugly night for ABC and FOX. On ABC, The Muppets was down a tenth in viewers and the demo to another series low. This is possibly the biggest flop in a season full of them. At 8:30pm, Fresh Off the Boat was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. It tied a series low but built on The Muppets as usual. At 9pm, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. On FOX, Grandfathered was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo while The Grinder was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Only Scream Queens rose in the ABC & FOX mess. It was up four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Chicago Med (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Muppets (ABC)
