    FROM ABC

    Facing stiff competition in the opening hour of the night from CBS’ NCIS original and the time period premieres of NBC’s The Wall and Fox’s The Mick, ABC returned with Tuesday’s Top 2 comedies in Adults 18-49 with The Middle (1.7/6) and American Housewife (1.6/5), beating Fox’s New Girl (1.1/4) and Mick (1.3/4) head to head by 55% and 23% at 8pm and 8:30pm, respectively. Other competition on the night included cross-over episodes of NBC’s Chicago Fire and Chicago PD (9-11pm) and Fox’s season premiere of Bones (9-10pm).

    All 4 of ABC’s Tuesday comedies grew over their most recent originals (on 12/13/16), driving the Net to a 6-week high on the night in Adults 18-49 – since 11/22/16.

    · At 8pm, ABC’s The Middle was up from its most recent original in Adults 18-49 (+6% – 1.7/6 vs. 1.6/6) to deliver a best-since-premiere rating 12 weeks ago – since 10/11/16.

    · At 8:30pm, ABC’s American Housewife built by 7% on its last original airing in Adults 18-49 (1.6/5 vs. 1.5/5) to tie its highest rating since mid-October – since 10/18/16.

    · At 9pm, ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat grew by double digits to deliver its best numbers since its season opener (on 10/11/16) in Total Viewers (+13% – 4.4 million vs. 3.9 million) and Adults 18-49 (+17% – 1.4/4 vs. 1.2/4). Fresh Off the Boat was Tuesday’s #3 comedy, outdelivering both of Fox’s sit coms in viewers and young adults.

    · At 9:30pm, ABC’s The Real O’Neals built on its most recent original in Total Viewers (+6% – 3.3 million vs. 3.1 million) and Adults 18-49 (+11% – 1.0/3 vs. 0.9/3), marking its strongest performance in 7 weeks – since 11/15/16.

    Impressive for the Chicago shows. And I am quiet impressed with The Wall’s numbers, actually.

    • Hello Larry

      Very impressive performance for NBC with no Voice or This Is Us on a Tuesday night. The Wall shocked me as it didn’t perform that hotly at 10pm but did better at 8pm it might outperform Hollywood Game Night in that slot these next couple of months. Chicago shows did very well as I’m glad to see Chicago PD finally reach a season-high.

      • Louis

        I do think The Wall will beat HGN, as much as I like HGN.

        • Hello Larry

          Yeah I think people were ready for a game show like this but I do wish more people would’ve gotten behind HGN.

      • renamoretti1

        I know you’re a fan, but 6 million viewers (or even 7) isn’t all that impressive…

  • Garebelman

    Good enough for the Wall as a place holder for the Voice. The crossover did well

    New Girl was up some and the Mick grew out of it. That will be considered a Fox smash success so I guess both will be renewed.

    Poor Bones. I’m still watching but I Guess after being thrown all over the schedule for years folks are really burned out on it. It probably should have left a couple of seasons ago but FOX was in dire situation (and still is). This show will go out with a whimper. I remember when House dropped in that one season and they announced that as the final season and it went out higher than it looks like Bones will

    • renamoretti1

      No matter how many times New Girl fails, FOX will pretend it’s a hit.

      They’ll seize on any excuse.

      That’s how they became a mostly irrelevant network.

  • renamoretti1

    Shouldn’t the title have mentioned NCIS, once again towering over the rest of the night and one of the last two real hits on TV?
