Tuesday TV Ratings 3/13/18: Rise Has a Mediocre Start, Still Crushes For the People (UPDATED)

Tuesday night saw the premieres of two new series, and neither exactly lit up the charts. Of the two, NBC's Rise did the higher numbers. Rise started with a 1.3, a usually pretty decent number for 10 PM, until you realize that its lead-in was over double that, and that it had 1.4/1.1 half-hours. That makes that look significantly less good. As for the rest of NBC, This Is Us roared to a 2.7 for its finale, while The Voice ticked up a tenth from last Tuesday. This all made for a great start to Tuesday, at least. Over on ABC, the other (not at all) big premiere was For the People, which started with a 0.8 in the ABC "death slot."This is obviously not a promising start in any way, and the show is clearly not long for this world. However, with a lead in from Blackish, which tumbled to a new series low at 9, and then another new series low (0.8) at 9:30, this is about the best For the People could do. Elsewhere, THe Middle fell a tenth while Fresh Off the Boat held steady. Over on CBS, long-time anchor NCIS was steady, while Bull and NCIS: New Orleans both climbed a tenth. The Fox comedies held steady at 0.7 and 0.6, despite a low lead-in from a repeat of Lethal Weapon. The CW had complete steadiness, which is good considering some of these rough numbers.

Finals Update: This Is Us (+0.1), The Voice (+0.1) Blackish (+0.1) and NCIS (+0.1) adjusted up. Rise (-0.1) failed to rise and actually adjusted down.
