As expected, it was NBC leading Tuesday night. At 8pm, The Voice was up three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week's troubling drop. At 9pm, Chicago Med had a great night, rising eight tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. The viewer total was the best since December. Chicago Fire finished the night off even with last week. On ABC, Fresh Off the Boat returned after two weeks off to a solid result. It was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo for its best performance since March 8. At 8:30pm, The Real O'Neals was also up half a million viewers and two tenths from last week, when it followed a repeat. At 9pm, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Beyond the Tank was even.

Over on CBS, the season finale of Limitless followed repeats but was even with last week. I'm not sure it deserves to, but I definitely see this show coming back for a second season. Finally on FOX, there were three episodes of New Girl airing with new ones at 8pm and 9pm. The 8pm episode was up half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo from last week but the 9pm episode tied the series low set last week and there was no interest in the Prince cameo repeat that aired at 9:30pm. The only non-New Girl show was Grandfathered, which was new for the first time since March 8 and it ended up crashing to a series low by two tenths in the demo. I keep hearing that either Grandfathered or The Grinder will get renewed, but does either one deserve to? I don't think so.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Chicago Med (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Grandfathered (FOX)
