Tuesday Final Nationals: Moderate Sampling for ‘Heartbeat’ Preview on NBC

CBS was the all-around Tuesday night winner in total viewers (11.97 million), adults 18-49 (1.7 rating/6 share), adults 18-34 (0.9/4) and adults 25-54 (2.5/7).

NBC’s “Heartbeat” starring Heather George debuted out of “The Voice” on this evening with so-so returns. The new medical drama retained just 59 percent in total viewers and 56 percent in adults 18-49 from its “Voice” lead-in. “Heartbeat” was originally slated for a Fall 2015 premiere but its lead star George was pregnant. The series that stepped in — Dick Wolf’s “Chicago Med” — experienced vastly better retention from “The Voice” when it premiered out of the popular talent show back on Nov. 17, 2015: 77 percent in total viewers, 83 percent in adults 18-49.
