Ratings Breakdown:
CBS won this atypical final Tuesday in January, besting No. 2 NBC in the household overnights by 24 percent. Third overall was Fox, followed by ABC and The CW, which was the only broadcast network to air its regularly scheduled line-up (dramas “The Flash” and relocated “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow”). But due to President Trump’s live announcement of the Supreme Court nomination, which was telecast from 8-8:17 p.m. ET, the traditional program analysis is excluded today.

  1. Where are the half hour break downs? I have noticed this place is slacking on that as of late.

    Agents of SHIELD lost to two repeats. That’s really bad. This season has been a mixed bag. It will either end this season or get a reduced order fifth and final season. ABC has so many problems that it is hard to figure out which one will happen.

      • They should do the same with Once Upon a Time too. At least NBC had since enough to know Grimm’s numbers dropped last season so they gave it a final season this season. I don’t see ABC being as smart. They need a better Sunday anchor or change Sunday up entirely. A comedy block would be interesting as there are no comedies on Sunday besides animation.
