Tuesday night brought the return of the ABC comedy block and the results were decidedly mixed. On the positive note was Fresh Off the Boat, which slid up to 8pm. It was up two tenths in the demo and posted its best viewer total since the season premiere. This show is definitely a self-starter, it just needs a companion. That companion is not The Muppets, which collapsed to 2.8 million viewers and a 0.9 demo. This is a million viewers and two tenths in the demo below its worst result in the fall. Even with the "reboot" creatively, this show has clearly been rejected by viewers and I think it's past the point of no return. At 9pm, Marvel's Agent Carter was down a tenth in viewers and the demo to new series lows. At 10pm, What Would You Do? was down three tenths and even in the demo. On CBS, the annual Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials special was on par with recent years with a very solid 2.0 demo.

It was another pretty solid night for NBC. At 8pm, Hollywood Game Night was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Chicago Med followed and was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. At 10pm, Chicago Fire was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally on FOX, New Girl, like Fresh Off the Boat, is appearing to be a rose followed by thorns. It was up a tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It's been having a much better season so far than I think most expected. Grandfathered followed and was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. It's getting pretty ugly for The Grinder, which was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo to pretty horrible numbers. FOX will probably let it run its course, but I'm not convinced they should.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Fresh Off the Boat (ABC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Muppets (ABC)
