NBC and CBS split the Tuesday victory for the second straight week.
'The Voice' held strong week-to-week, dropping only two tenths to a 4.5. 'Chicago Fire' dipped by a single tenth, but is still way up from what its was doing last fall at this point. 'NCIS' fell one tenth to a 3.5. You'd think the number would have gone up for Cote de Pablo's final episode. Oh well. 'NCIS: LA' continued its unexpected downward trend, dropping three tenths to a 2.7. Moving 'Person of Interest' to Tuesday nights is officially not working out. The action/drama set a new series low for the second straight week. Why CBS couldn't have just kept it on Thursdays is beyond me. If things aren't broke, don't fix them.
Week two of 'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' brought with it a mixed bag of numbers. On one hand, the 3.3 episode two drew is more than high enough for the series to be considered a huge success. On the other hand, last week's premiere drew a monster sized 4.7 demo. Lead-out 'The Goldbergs' took a huge plunge too, going down almost a full point. The story was the same for the already poorly rated 'Trophy Wife,' which dropped to a 1.4. 'Lucky 7' (already ABC's lowest rated fall drama debut ever) jumped straight off a cliff in week two, posting a hideously low 0.7. This show will be "lucky" to make it to the end of the season.
'Dads' continued sliding downhill, dropping to a 1.3. 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' just barely bested that. 'New Girl' dipped below a 2.0 for one of the first times I can ever recall. 'The Mindy Project' was the only FOX comedy to not drop, matching last week's already low 1.5. Night two of the 'iHeart Radio Music Festival' rose ever so slightly from last night.
