Blaine’s Real or Magic special averaged 7.8 million total viewers and a 2.6 demo rating over its 90-minute run, per finals, nearly tying NCIS: Los Angeles for second in the 9:30 half-hour and then dominating the 10 o’clock hour.
Opening ABC’s night, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. (6.9 mil/2.4) enjoyed its very first week-to-week gain, up two tenths in the demo. The Goldbergs led out of that with 5.1 mil/1.6, dipping a tenth.
CBS | NCIS was rock steady with 19.7 mil and a 3.0, NCIS: LA (15 mil/2.5) inched up a tenth and Person of Interest (12.3 mil/2.0) lost a few eyeballs (and a hero, sniff) but matched its week-ago rating.
NBC | The Biggest Loser (6.5 mil/1.9) gained a tenth, The Voice (11.7 mil/3.2) dipped two tenths week-to-week and Chicago Fire (7.5 mil/1.9) dropped 14 percent to a season low.
FOX | Dads (3.2 mil/1.3) and Brooklyn Nine-Nine (3.3 mil/1.5) both ticked up a tenth and New Girl (3.3 mil/1.7) was flat, but Mindy Project (2.4 mil/1.2) dropped 11 percent and two tenths.
THE CW | The iHeartRadio/Lady Gaga thing drew 860,000 little monsters and a little 0.3 demo rating, setting Supernatural (2.0/0.9) up for declines of 17 percent.
