WICKED CITY became too bad to live.

DEMOGRAPHIC DETAIL: For each broadcast program (or hour segment), the chart below displays preliminary key advertiser demographics (adult 18-34, 18-49 and 25-54 ratings), audience skews (women 18-49, men 18-49 and adults 50+ shares) and total viewership (thousands of people over the age of 2).

Ratings analysis and comparisons follow the chart.

Fasts Demo 2015 Nov TUE.10

ABC:  It’s hard to see how WICKED CITY can stay on the air after a 0.3 drop that put the show at a pathetic 0.4.  The rest of the night was ugly, too:  THE MUPPETS (which recently got a far from enthusiastic 3-episode “back order”) fell 0.2 to 1.2, FRESH OFF THE BOAT lost 0.3 to 1.3, and AGENTS OF SHIELD was down 0.1 to 1.3.

FOX:  We found out yesterday that GRANDFATHERED and THE GRINDER will have new lead-ins at midseason (NEW GIRL and BROOKLYN NINE-NINE, respectively), and perhaps that will give them a bit of a jump.  For now, both are stagnant, respectively at 1.0 and 0.8.  SCREAM QUEENS dropped 0.1 to 0.9.

NBC:  A 2-hour THE VOICE jumped 0.7 from last week’s clip show to 2.7, which helped CHICAGO FIRE gain 0.3 to a dominant 2.1 for its hour.

CBS:  NCIS lost 0.1 to 2.2, and NCIS: NEW ORLEANS fell 0.2 to 1.7.  LIMITLESS was steady at 1.5, which was 0.2 better than what PERSON OF INTEREST was doing at this point last season.

CW:  THE FLASH and IZOMBIE stayed at 1.5 and 0.6.

We’re at the midpoint of November sweeps, and all the networks have episodes of their regular series on tap tonight.

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