On Tuesday night, CBS brought Person of Interest back for its final season after nearly a year off the air. It hit a series low in total viewers but was up a tenth in the demo from its season finale a year ago this week. It will air on Mondays and Tuesdays over the next several weeks. Earlier in the night, NCIS was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while NCIS: New Orleans had a strong night, rising four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. On NBC, it's getting kind of ugly for The Voice, which was down 1.5 million viewers and a rough four tenths in the demo. This show needs a shot in the arm, maybe the new coaches next season will help. The weaker lead-in and drama competition did not help the Chicago twins as Chicago Med was down 1.4 million viewers and three tenths in the demo and Chicago Fire was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

On ABC, Fresh Off the Boat was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo but it remained far and away the best of the block. At 8:30pm, The Real O'Neals was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for its worst performance with a new Boat as a lead-in. At 9pm, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Beyond the Tank was down a tenth in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. I guess this is an improvement after five straight weeks of 0.5 demos? Finally on FOX, New Girl was the only show that hit 2 million viewers or a 1.0 demo as the 8pm episode was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. Grandfathered followed and was even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. At 9pm, another New Girl was also even in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. At 9:30pm, The Grinder was down two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo for a series low. Reports have this show still having a chance. How??

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: NCIS: New Orleans (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Voice (NBC)
