In a result that doesn’t bode well for its future, on-the-bubble CBS veteran drama “Person of Interest” hit a season low in its finale Tuesday night, tying with ABC’s modestly performing freshman drama “Forever” — with both shows finishing well behind NBC’s hot “Chicago Fire.” CBS fared better leading off the night with “NCIS,” which edged out NBC’s fading “The Voice” as Tuesday’s top draw among young adults.
NBC and CBS tied for the night’s lead in adults 18-49, with the Eye winning easily in total viewers.
According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, “NCIS” averaged a 2.0 rating/7 share in adults 18-49 and 14.2 million viewers overall in the 8 o’clock hour, matching the show’s season low set with its prior two originals. The drama, which wraps its 12th season next week, was Tuesday’s No. 1 show in 18-49, 25-54 and total viewers.

Fast National ratings for Tuesday, May 5, 2015. An hour-long live episode of "Undateable" got a small uptick among young viewers as NBC split Tuesday night in the key demo, with CBS staging its regular Tuesday domination overall, led by "NCIS." Despite much hype and high-profile guest stars, the "Undateable" event actually lost viewers week-to-week, but that was more a product of the continued late-season swoon for NBC's "The Voice." "The Voice" hit a series low on Tuesday, as did CBS' finale for "Person of Interest." Among other Tuesday notables, ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." ticked up, as did Fox's "New Girl" finale, while The CW's "The Flash" was down a tiny bit. All changes were pretty cosmetic. Let's get to the numbers... Among adults 18-49, ABC and CBS both averaged a 1.6 rating for Tuesday night, tops in the key demographic. ABC was third with a 1.3 key demo rating. »

This television season was highlighted by some strong first-year drama performers like “Empire,” “How to Get Away with Murder” and “Scorpion,” but with each of these shows done for the year, it was a trio of veteran hourlongs that topped the ratings charts last week.
In Nielsen’s rankings for the April 27-May 3 frame, ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” emerged as easily the No. 1-rated ad-supported drama series among adults 18-49 (2.6 rating/9 share, 8.74 million viewers overall) as viewers tuned in for the first episode following the surprising death one week earlier of Patrick Dempsey’s character Derek. It was followed in the drama demo rankings by NBC’s “Law & Order: Svu” (2.1/7), which was boosted by its crossover storyline with “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago Pd,” and CBS’ “NCIS” (2.0/7), which was also the week’s most-watched primetime program overall with 14.85 million viewers.
Combined, “Grey’s,” “Svu” and “NCIS” have been around for »

As broadcast television heads toward upfront week, NBC has announced the addition of three brand new dramas to its slate. Having commissioned 19 pilots, the network already sent Shades Of Blue, Coach and Telenovela straight to series. These projects have now been joined by series commitments for Heartbreaker, Blindspot and Dick Wolf’s Chicago Med.
Chicago Med promises to take audiences into the daily chaos of Chicago’s busiest hospital – focusing on the doctors working within. It fits into Dick Wolf’s successful Chicago franchise, with characters from Chicago P.D and Chicago Fire planned to pass through the sterile hallways of the hospital. Oliver Platt, S. Epatha Merkerson, Laurie Holden, Nick Gehlfuss, and Yaya Dacosta are among the cast of this show that is written by Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt and Derek Haas. The synopsis clearly sounds like a version of ER made to fit with Wolf’s existing shows, »

NBC isn’t wasting any time putting together the pieces of its lineup for next season: The network has just green-lit three drama series, including Dick Wolf’s Chicago Med and a conspiracy thriller from producer Greg Berlanti. The pickups come a full ten days before Peacock executives are set to unveil their new schedule to advertisers and the media as part of the annual TV upfronts process. NBC is confirming its orders a bit earlier than most networks, in part so producers can lock in top writers and also, perhaps, to give NBC’s marketing machine a head start on promoting the shows to viewers already overwhelmed with programming options. Here are the three shows NBC has ordered to series so far:Chicago Med: A spinoff from Wolf’s established hits Chicago Fire and Chicago Pd set in what NBC calls the “pulse-pounding pandemonium of the emergency room.” So, basically: ER, »
