Fast Demo 2018 Apr 24.TUE

CW:  After THE FLASH lost 0.1 to a series low 0.6, THE 100 returned with 0.4, steady with its 2017 premiere (on a Wednesday).

ABC:  A quartet of ROSEANNE reruns were at 1.3-1.5, numbers that many sitcoms would be happy to see with new episodes.  That lead-in boosted DECEPTION by 0.2 from its Sunday episode to 0.8, which was also up 0.3 from last Tuesday’s FOR THE PEOPLE.

NBC:  THE VOICE (1.5) and RISE (0.8) were steady, but CHICAGO MED fell 0.3 to 0.9.

FOX:  LETHAL WEAPON gained 0.1 to 0.9, and both LA TO VEGAS and NEW GIRL remained at 0.6.

CBS:  A night of reruns at 0.6-0.7.

Tonight’s season premieres include CODE BLACK on CBS, BROCKMIRE on IFC, and ARCHER on FXX.  In addition, USA airs the 2-hour season finale of SUITS, which involves (spoiler alert) Meghan Markle and a wedding.

COMPARISONS TO SIMILAR NIGHTS: Preliminary adult 18-49 ratings versus the same night last year and same night last week.
