Preliminary Ratings: Tuesday 09/20/2016

Night two of the new season has CBS as the most watched network, averaging over 14 million viewers, but NBC dominates in the younger demographic, by more than a full point in each category. New series BULL and THIS IS US get off to strong starts, grabbing 15. million and 10 million viewers each, respectively.

NBC's THE VOICE was #1 in the young demographics, including a 4.2 rating in Adults 25-54. That is on par from one year ago. THIS IS US had a strong premiere, but when comparing the series launch of it and BLINDSPOT, one year ago, THIS IS US is down about 10%.

NCIS was the most watched show of the evening, but is down 2.6 million viewers and 15% in the A18-49 demographic, from last year's premiere. The new series, BULL, got off to a very strong start, holding all of the NCIS audience and growing in the A18-49 and A25-54 demographics. NCIS: NEW ORLEANS, now at 10 PM, dropped 1.4 million viewers and 20% in the A18-49 demo, from the 2015 premiere.

ABC topped FOX, thanks to a decent performance from DANCING WITH THE STARS, despite a third place showing in the time slot. However, AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D is a dead series. It was last in the 10 PM time slot and lost 1.3 million viewers and 35% in the demo, from last year's season premiere.

FOX still has a long way to go if it wants to compete with the Big 3. It has just one-third the audience as #3 ABC and is last in two of the three demographic categories, excluding The CW. Come the first week in October, FOX could see a 5th place finish, behind The CW.
