Tuesday TV Ratings 3/20/18: Fresh Off the Boat Ticks Up for Finale, The Mick Ties LA To Vegas (UPDATED)

Tuesday was an off night for some shows, and finale night for one. Fresh Off the Boat, ABC's long-running comedy, ended its fourth season last night with a nice ratings uptick, hitting a 1.0 for the first time since January. The other ABC comedies also had good nights with both The Middle and Blackish gaining two tenths from their latest episodes, with a 1.3 and 1.1, respectively. This will be the Middle's last-ever regularly-scheduled episode at 8 PM, moving to 8:30 in two weeks to make room for Roseanne, and it certainly had a strong 8 PM sendoff. ABC's night wasn't all good though, and newbie For the People had a rough drop, scoring just a 0.6 for its second episode. It's already in Kevin (Probably) territory, which is not a great place to be. The only other network with more than an hour of originals was NBC. Their night started well enough, though the Voice did see a two-tenth decline from last Tuesday. Things got less good at 9, when newbie Rise made its timeslot debut with a 1.1, down a tenth its premiere. That's not a promising start, especially when you consider the 1.2 for lead-out Chicago Med. Med is holding its own after a weak lead-in, which is great news for it. Fox's comedies again aired after repeats, this time with different results. The Mick ticked up at 9:30 and for the first time, it beat LA To Vegas, which was at 0.6. This is an unusual rating, but it may just be a fluke. We'll have to see next week. The CW's Black Lightning was at 0.5 behind a repeat of the Flash.

Finals Update: The Middle (+0.1), LA To Vegas (+0.1) and the The Voice (+0.1) adjusted up. The repeat of The Flash (-0.1) adjusted down.
