Tuesday Overnights: CBS Sweeps in Households…Again

Modest Return for CW Drama 'The 100'

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Household Rating/Share
CBS: 6.3/11, NBC: 3.8/ 7, ABC: 2.3/ 4, Fox: 1.8/ 3, CW: 0.9/ 2

Percent Change from the Year-Ago Evening:
NBC and Fox: no change, CBS: – 6, CW: -10, ABC: -32

Ratings Breakdown:
It was another household overnight sweep for CBS care of its combination of crime solvers “NCIS” (#1 for the night: 7.8 rating/13 share at 8 p.m.), “FBI” (6.1/10) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (5.0/ 9). But NBC is still the network to potentially beat in adults 18-49 with its line-up of recently introduced drama “The Village” (#2: 3.2/ 6 at 8 p.m.), relocated “The Voice” (#2: 4.4/ 7 at 9 p.m.) and already renewed freshman medical drama “New Amsterdam” (#2: 3.7/ 7 at 10 p.m.). While “The Village” does not offer the Tuesday night anchor strength of former 8 p.m. time period occupant “The Voice,” these overnight results are still respectable. My crystal ball tells me a second season renewal is coming. Stay tuned.

In season premiere news, CW benchwarmer drama “The 100” returned with a 0.7 rating/1 share in households at 8 p.m., which was 42 percent below lead-in “The Flash” (#5: 1.2/ 2 at 8 p.m.).
