NCIS remained steady and New Amsterdam was up in the Tuesday TV ratings. Sadly, the same couldn’t be said for Arrow’s final season.
The World Series began on Tuesday, Oct. 22. It’s not all that surprising that the baseball won both the demo and the total audience, although the latter was only just ahead of the best-performing scripted series. Here’s a look at the Tuesday TV ratings, which saw NCIS steady, New Amsterdam up, and Arrow down.
Let’s start with CBS’ night, which was a little mixed. NCIS remained steady throughout the night, with 11.03 million viewers (just short of 0.5 million behind the World Series) and holding a 1.1 rating in the demo. FBI and NCIS: New Orleans both saw dips in the demo, with FBI‘s the largest dip of the entire night at 13%. The good news is the total audience for both remained steady.

NBC enjoyed a good night with all three shows ticking up in both metrics. New Amsterdam had the best night across the entire board, seeing a 15% increase to the demo up to 0.9. This Is Us‘ demo sat at 1.6 and remained the winner of the night out of all regular programming.
ABC had mostly a night of specials or reruns. mixed-ish and black-ish were the only two shows to have new episodes, and both performed well off the back of It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and Toy Story of Terror!. In fact, mixed-ish had the best audience uptick at 13%, taking the audience to 3.09 million.
The same couldn’t be said for The CW’s night. While The Flash held steady in the demo and ticked up 10% in the total audience, both metrics for Arrow‘s final season were down from the premiere. It was the only show of the night to see a downward tick in both metrics, with the demo dropping 11% to 0.3. While the ratings don’t matter for renewal, we do want the show to end on a high.
Outside of The CW, the lowest-performing show in terms of rating was the ABC special, Douglas Dynasty – A Diane Sawyer Special. It matched The Flash‘s demo of 0.5. It’s 3.01 million viewers prevented it from being the lowest-viewed show. That went to ABC’s black-ish, which sat at 2.73 million (although a 6% increase from the previous week).
Out of all shows, black-ish remains the most at risk for Tuesday nights. mixed-ish could be close behind. All others will likely remain safe.
