Tuesday Final Nationals: ‘Great News’ Debuts On-Par with ‘Trial & Error’ Launch on NBC

NBC was Tuesday night’s top network in total viewers (7.06 million) and adults 25-54 (2.0 rating/6 share). Their night featured the two-episode premiere of the Tina Fey-created comedy “Great News.” It wasn’t an impressive start for the new series, drawing similar figures to the Mar. 14 start of the network’s recent comedy ‘Trial & Error’, but it did manage to perform at NBC’s five-week high within the 9-10 p.m. hour.

TNT led prime time among adults 18-49 (approx. 1.7 rating) and adults 18-34 (approx. 1.6 rating) with a “2017 NBA Playoff” doubleheader of Game 5s — Oklahoma City at Houston (4.15 million viewers), followed by Utah at L.A. Clippers (3.18 million viewers).
