Tuesday TV Ratings 1/18/22: Abbott Elementary, American Auto, Blackish & This Is Us All Drop, Superman and Lois Holds Steady (UPDATED)


Ratings Analysis: After an encouraging uptick that came just a week prior, NBC sitcom 'American Auto' (0.38, -0.12) came crashing back down, even going one-hundredth below its timeslot premiere. 8:30pm comedy 'Grand Crew' (0.33, -0.05) was also on the decline but had the smallest drop of the lineup. Dramas' This Is Us' (0.79, -0.15) and 'New Amsterdam' (0.35, -0.10) lost significant ground at 9pm and 10pm respectively. 'Judge Steve Harvey' (0.64, -0.04), Abbott Elementary' (0.58, -0.03), and 'Black-ish' (0.40, -0.01) all ticked down on ABC, but these drops were far less damaging than the ones on the peacock network. Struggling drama 'Queens' (0.30, +0.04) was the lone program of the night to actually rise from its previous episode. Fox's 'Our Kind of People' (0.22, -0.04) tied its series low for its penultimate episode and lost to the '9-1-1: Lone Star' repeat (0.29) that preceded it. CBS had solid encores of 'FBI' (0.41), 'FBI: International' (0.37), and 'FBI: Most Wanted' (0.37). On the CW front, 'Superman & Lois' (0.21, -0.02) and 'Naomi' (0.11, -0.03) shaved off a few hundredths from their week-ago premieres. 

Finals Update: 'Abbott Elementary' (+0.1), 'Black-ish' (+0.1), 'Queens' (+0.1), 'This Is Us' (+0.1), and 'New Amsterdam' (+0.1) adjusted up.
