Fasts Demo 2016 Feb TUE.23

CBS:  The venerable NCIS was far and away the night’s biggest show, up 0.1 from last week to 2.4.  NCIS NEW ORLEANS dropped 0.2 to 1.8, and LIMITLESS slipped 0.1 to a new low 1.1.

ABC:  FRESH OFF THE BOAT lost 0.1 to 1.2, and THE MUPPETS held last week’s 0.8.  A 2-hour AGENT CARTER was at 0.8 in the 9PM hour and 0.7 at 10PM, slightly above last week’s 0.7 over its 2 hour span.

FOX:  NEW GIRL (1.2), GRANDFATHERED (0.8), BROOKLYN NINE-NINE (0.9) and THE GRINDER (0.6) were all steady with last week.

NBC:  HOLLYWOOD GAME NIGHT gained 0.2 to 1.1, and CHICAGO MED was up 0.1 to 1.5.  CHICAGO FIRE remained at 1.6.

CW:  THE FLASH lost 0.1 to 1.4.  IZOMBIE is up 0.1 to 0.6, but in recent weeks it’s tended to lose 0.1 in final numbers.

The ward closes (for the season, anyway) for CBS’s bubble show CODE BLACK.  On cable, CATFISH returns to MTV.
