Primetime Ratings, Tuesday, 10/15/13

 

Person of Interest

 

NBC and CBS split the Tuesday victory for the fourth straight week.

The season premiere of 'The Biggest Loser' lived up to its name, falling seven tenths to a 2.3 from last year's season opener. That number stands as the show's lowest premiere rating ever. 'The Voice' was way up from last week's clip show, but was down considerably from its last original episode. 'Chicago Fire' rose two tenths to a 2.3. 'NCIS' recovered decently well after last week's huge drop, rising back up to a 3.1. The 100th installment of 'NCIS: LA' matched last week's 2.6. 'Person of Interest' rose for the first time this season, climbing two tenths to a 2.2.

'Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.' continues to draw a consistent audience, dropping only a single tenth to a 2.8. Conversely, 'The Goldbergs' continues to fall, dipping to a 1.6, and further cementing its soon to be canceled status. 'Trophy Wife' did that much worse, posting a 1.3, and perhaps racing its lead-in to the TV graveyard.

'Dads' finally got some somewhat positive news, rising two tenths to a 1.5. 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' also drew a 1.5. The bad lead-in continues to effect 'New Girl,' which took a concerning three tenths drop to a 1.8. 'The Mindy Project' is stable if nothing else, matching the 1.4 it's been getting for the past few weeks. 'The Originals' had a good night, rising two tenths to a 1.1. Unfortunately, 'Supernatural' lost those two tenths right back for The CW, although it still earned an above average 1.0.

Well, 'New Girl' has consistently been the highest rated Tuesday FOX comedy for its whole run, but has been taking steady ratings hits since being put behind Dads and Nine-Nine. So I'm placing most of the blame on the bad lead-in. It's not an exact science, I just extrapolate conclusions from the ongoing ratings patterns.

So, I'm new to this Ratings system but do we blame the lead in for the drop in 'New Girl' or do we blame 'New Girl' itself?
