FOX got the victory among the 18-49 demo, while NBC drew more total viewers.
The series premiere of 'Dads' posted a solid but unspectacular 2.2. Lead-out 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' did even better, earning a 2.6. Season three of 'New Girl' bowed to a 2.9, slightly above last year's debut. Season two of 'The Mindy Project' was the big loser of the FOX night, garnering a 1.9. This is down almost half a point from last fall's series premiere.
'The Million Second Quiz' fell four tenths from last Tuesday. 'America's Got Talent' popped up a single tenth at 9pm. ABC's showing of 'Iron Man 2' delivered the network's best Tuesday numbers since late May. 'Whose Line is it Anyway' matched last week's 0.9. 'Capture' rose a single tenth to an 0.5.
