Fast Demo 2016 Jun TUE.28

CBS:  The 2-hour season premiere of ZOO was at 0.9/0.8 (an overall 0.9 average), compared to 1.2 for last year’s series premiere, with the 2d hour a new series low.  ZOO didn’t even match the 1.0 lead-in it got from a NCIS rerun.

NBC:  The US OLYMPIC TRIALS continued, with 1.3 for an hour of swimming.  That pushed AMERICA’S GOT TALENT to 9PM, where its 2.4 was up 0.1 over last week.

ABC:  After an hour of 0.8 sitcom reruns, UNCLE BUCK and TO TELL THE TRUTH were both up 0.1, respectively to 1.1 and 1.0.

FOX:  HOTEL HELL (0.9) and COUPLED (0.5) were each up 0.1 from last week.

CW:  CONTAINMENT lost 0.1 to 0.2, a tenth below the rerun of THE FLASH that preceded it.

NBC has another hour of US OLYMPIC TRIALS tonight, followed by back-to-back episodes of THE NIGHT SHIFT.

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