NBC and CBS split the Tuesday victory for the third straight week.
'The Voice' predictably dropped big from last week, since last night's episode was a recap show. The reality series still managed to win 8pm though. 'Chicago Fire' also took a big drop, tumbling down five tenths to a 2.1. Cote de Pablo was evidently a big factor in 'NCIS' long-time ratings dominance, as the first Ziva-less episode plunged down seven tenths to a 2.8. 'NCIS: LA' fell by a much smaller amount, going down a single tenth to a 2.6. 'Person of Interest' set a new series low for the third straight week, and CBS really needs to get this show back to Thursday quickly. 'POI' used to be a ratings leader, now it can't even beat 'Chicago Fire.'
'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' dropped a somewhat concerning four tenths. 2.9 is easily enough to get the show a second season for sure, but this is the third straight drop in as many weeks for the high-profile action-adventure series. 'The Goldbergs' fell to a 1.9, and is likely to meet the ax by the end of the year, if not sooner. 'Trophy Wife' actually matched last week's 1.4, at least showing that the comedy has a stable (if small) audience.
'Dads' matched last week's 1.3 for FOX, while 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' went up a tenth. 'New Girl' rose two tenths, jumping back up over the dangerous 2.0 threshold. 'The Mindy Project' dropped to a 1.4, but stayed in its normal range. 'The Originals' held very strong for The CW, dropping only a single tenth to a 0.9. 'Supernatural' started season nine off in a great way, besting last year's premiere rating by four tenths, and garnering the show's largest audience for a season opener since 2010.
