Demo Profile 2015 TUE.28 Apr

NBC:  THE VOICE was the highest rated show of the night, but it dropped half a point from last week to a very mortal 2.1.  UNDATEABLE and ONE BIG HAPPY both fell 0.2, to a respective 1.2 and 0.9.  CHICAGO FIRE, the first hour of a crossover with CHICAGO PD and SVU, slipped 0.1 to 1.5.

ABC:  A special DANCING WITH THE STARS was at 1.7, and then AGENTS OF SHIELD fell 0.2 to 1.4 (outrated by THE FLASH in the night’s superhero race).  A special CAPTIVE: A JOURNEY OF SURVIVAL was well above the recent FOREVER level at 1.4.

CBS:  NCIS was down 0.1 from its last new airing to 1.9, and NCIS NEW ORLEANS was steady at 1.8.  PERSON OF INTEREST slipped 0.1 to 1.4.

FOX:  HELL’S KITCHEN was down 0.1 to 1.1, then NEW GIRL, airing its first new episode in several weeks, was at 1.0, and with that stronger lead-in, WEIRD LONERS gained 0.1 to 0.6. 

CW:  THE FLASH rose 0.1 to 1.5, and IZOMBIE climbed 0.1 to 0.7.

NBC is re-airing last night’s CHICAGO FIRE in the 8PM slot tonight as a lead-in to the other 2 hours of the crossover.  Apart from that, all the networks have fresh regular programming.
