Ratings: ABC Tuesday Sitcoms All Slip From Premiere Week

ABC’s Tuesday sitcoms all slipped from last week, when they had returned for new season premieres or even debuted for the first time, in “American Housewife’s” case.

NBC and CBS split another Tuesday primetime, with the Peacock topping the key 18-49 demo and the Eye scooping up the most overall eyeballs.

Here’s something you don’t see every day: CW, Telemundo and Fox all tied in the main demo last night with a 0.7 rating. Plus, those three and Univision each rounded to a 1.7 million total viewer primetime average. In other words, Tuesdays are tight at the bottom.
