Carpool Karaoke seems not to be a primetime thing.

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 2016 Mar TUE.29


NBC:  THE VOICE dropped 0.2 to 2.3, but the night’s Dick Wolf shows returned strong after a month off, with CHICAGO MED up 0.03 to 1.8 and CHICAGO FIRE up 0.2 to 1.8.

CBS:  The network didn’t give its LATE LATE SHOW CARPOOL KARAOKE SPECIAL much of a lead-in with 1.2/1.2 NCIS franchise reruns, but the special’s 0.9 was still notably subdued.

CW:  Perhaps a bit of halo effect from its SUPERGIRL crossover on Monday helped THE FLASH, which was up 0.2 to 1.3.  There was no benefit for IZOMBIE, though, which stayed at 0.5.

ABC:  FRESH OFF THE BOAT and THE REAL O’NEALS were both steady at 1.2 and 1.0.  AGENTS OF SHIELD gained 0.1 to 1.0, while BEYOND THE TANK remained at 0.6.

FOX:  In an odd piece of scheduling, new episodes of NEW GIRL and BROOKLYN NINE-NINE were paired with reruns of GRANDFATHERED and THE GRINDER.  The result was a 0.1 dip for NEW GIRL to a series low 0.9 and a steady 0.8 for BROOKLYN, with 0.5/0.4 reruns between them.

It’s a red-letter night for FOX, as EMPIRE returns for its spring run.  On cable, TV Land premieres George Lopez’s latest sitcom LOPEZ.



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