New Amsterdam and NCIS ticked up in the Tuesday TV ratings for Nov. 12. Unfortunately, the same couldn’t be said for The Conners and more.
After a successful Monday night in the TV ratings, Tuesday’s offerings weren’t as good. New Amsterdam and NCIS both ticked up, but The Conners slipped to a new series low. Here’s a look at the results.
The CW took the night off from new episodes last night. Both The Flash and Arrow aired reruns, so there’s little need to look at those ratings.

All other networks aired new episodes of all shows, except ABC. Emergence wasn’t on last night, with the network opting for a Dolly Parton special instead. That matched NCIS: New Orleans in the TV ratings.
Speaking of NCIS: New Orleans, the post-shocker episode saw a big dip in the total audience, by 40%. The demo was down by 7%. That isn’t all that surprising for two reasons. 1) Fans won’t be happy that a main character has left the series, 2) There would have been the buildup with other episodes that this episode didn’t have. However, the second NCIS spin-off has been struggling in the ratings, and the show will be moving to Sundays in the new year.
What about other CBS shows? NCIS was up in the audience and steady in the demo. The 5% increase in the audience took it to 11.5 million, and it’s not surprising that this is the high of the night. As for FBI, the episode gained 3% in the audience but lost 12% in the demo.
The ratings for NCIS and FBI will be nothing to worry about. They remain strong shows for the network. The only way NCIS is going anywhere is if Mark Harmon decides it’s time to end it.
It wasn’t the largest dip in the demo. That goes to black-ish, which dropped to a new low of 0.5. The audience was also down by almost 10% but not at a series low-point. However, things aren’t boding well for the show to be renewed.
The spin-off, mixed-ish, also lost 21% of its demo and 10% of its audience. It is still sitting higher than black-ish, but ABC will need to have a discussion about the future of the Bow-focused series. This one is certainly on the bubble.
The Conners dropped to a series low on Nov. 12, but I doubt there’s anything to worry about just yet. It remains the top comedy on the network in terms of both demo and total audience. In the demo, it’s the second-best show on ABC, behind Grey’s Anatomy, and in the audience, it’s third-best behind Grey’s and The Good Doctor.
NBC and FOX both had mixed nights. While The Voice and New Amsterdam were up, This Is Us‘ demo took a small 3% fall. However, both The Voice and This Is Us remained the top in the demo.
The Resident saw the demo fall but the total audience tick up by 7%. It’s going to be interesting to see what NBC decides to do about the medical drama. While the demo is disappointing, the total audience is holding steady in the list of FOX shows. Tuesdays at 8 p.m. are competitive.
Empire saw the same results as The Resident in terms of metrics ups and downs. With it being the final season, FOX isn’t going to be too concerned with the TV ratings.
