Tuesday TV ratings: The Conners down, The Resident mixed

The Conners brought a new episode on Jan. 28, but the ratings were down. Meanwhile, The Resident was mixed. Here’s a look at the Tuesday TV ratings.

The Tuesday TV ratings for Jan. 28 are in. While The Conners slipped, The Resident had mixed results. Here’s a look at the full results.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not focusing too much on shows that are either ending or have been renewed. However, I do want to note that Arrow‘s series finale slipped in the ratings, which is disappointing. The different timeslot may be to blame, as fans may not have expected the finale special to air in the 8 p.m. slot.

For the rest of the ratings, we’ll start with ABC, which saw mixed results throughout the night. The Conners saw a slip in both the demo and total audience on Jan. 28. This follows the slip from when the show returned with its midseason premiere the previous week and brings the audience and demo to new series-lows.

Bless This Mess saw a dip in the demo by 4%, but saw that same percentage tick up in the total audience. mixed-ish and black-ish also saw mixed results, with their demos up and their total audiences down. It’s Emergence that is the most concerning, with the season finale ending with a 6% drop in the demo and a 4% drop in the total audience. I do think this will be a series finale.

As for NBC, the shows were mixed. Ellen’s Game of Games is the most concerning since it’s not been renewed for a fourth season yet. It dropped 3% in the demo to 1.0. However, the total audience was up almost 4%, which could be enough to save it. It’s the lowest-rated on NBC on Tuesdays, but it likely the cheapest to make.

CBS and FOX had stronger nights, with all shows up in at least one metric. NCIS was up in both metrics, and I don’t think we have to worry about this show. In fact, I don’t think there’s any reason to be concerned about all three CBS Tuesday crime dramas. Even FBI: Most Wanted‘s 7% drop in the total audience is good, with it being the top audience in the timeslot.

The Resident is concerning. Despite the 3% rise in the demo, the show dropped 0.6% in the total audience. This is the point where networks want to see the good figures. I continue to believe that the move to Tuesday nights was a bad decision for the series and will lead to cancellation, similarly to The Gifted‘s move. It’ shard to stand up to NCIS‘ almost 12 million viewers!
