Local Nielsen ratings snapshot (Tues., Jan. 14) -- no bounce for Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s surprise wins at Sunday night’s heavily watched Golden Globes telecast resulted in no afterglow at all for Tuesday’s new episode on Fox.

In fact it was the polar opposite. The Andy Samberg sitcom ended up being tied for D-FW’s least-watched prime-time attraction on any of the Big Four broadcast networks. Airing at 7:30 p.m., Nine-Nine drew a measly 56,810 viewers before Fox’s New Girl popped up to 113,621 viewers. The Mindy Project then replicated Nine-Nine’s total of 56,810.

Nine-Nine likewise bombed with advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds, where it had the bottom rung all to itself with just 22,797 viewers in this key demographic. The Nielsens sometimes work in mysterious ways but few would have measured Nine-Nine for a ratings coffin after Sunday’s big coming out party.

CBS’ NCIS as always led all Tuesday night programming with 454,483 total viewers. CBS also won from 8 to 10 p.m. with new hours of NCIS: Los Angeles (369,268 viewers) and Person of Interest (298,255).

Among 18-to-49-year-olds, ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ran first from 7 to 8 p.m. NCIS: LA and Person of Interest took the top spots for the final two hours of prime-time.

ABC’s second episode of Killer Women, starring Tricia Helfer as an against-the-grain Texas Ranger, ran third at 9 p.m. in total viewers with 113,621. It drooped to a distant fourth with 18-to-49-year-olds behind Person of Interest, NBC’s Chicago Fire and Fox4’s local newscast.

In Tuesday’s four-way local news derby results, WFAA8 notched another pair of wins at 10 p.m. in both total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 again ran the table at 6 a.m. while also sweeping the 5 p.m. competitions. The golds at 6 p.m. went to CBS11 in total viewers and Fox4 with 25-to-54-year-olds.
