Primetime Ratings: ‘Game of Silence’ Opens OK for NBC

Weak night for broadcast but ABC programs do show uptick

NBC grabbed the Tuesday broadcast trophy on the strength of The Voice, the network scoring a 2.0 in viewers 18-49, per the Nielsen overnights, with a 7 share. Next was CBS at 1.2/4, then ABC and Fox at 0.8/3 and The CW at 0.5/2.

The Voice did a 2.2, down a tenth from its last fresh Tuesday episode, and a preview of crime drama Game of Silence scored a decent 1.5.

CBS was in repeats, with a double run of NCIS: New Orleans around NCIS, yet still managed second place.

ABC repeated comedies 8-9 then had Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. at 1.0, up 11%, while Beyond the Tank grew 20% to 0.6.

On Fox, New Girl climbed 22% to 1.1, before a Grandfathered repeat, then Brooklyn Nine-Nine did a 0.9 and The Grinder a 0.6, both flat.

The CW’s iZombie registered a 0.5 across two episodes, including the season finale, up 25%.
