Ratings: THE MUPPETS Drops, New Fox Comedies Debut Soft

grandfathered

GRANDFATHERED and THE GRINDER had rather soft openings for Fox on Tuesday thanks to some tough competition from THE VOICE  and NCIS and ABC saw a week 2 drop for its returning series (particularly for THE MUPPETS). LIMITLESS, over on CBS, matched its ratings from last week, which must be making CBS happy.

In terms of total viewers,  CBS won the night (12.7 million), followed by NBC (10.9 million), ABC (4.8 million) and Fox (4.3 million). See all numbers below (live + same day total viewers & adults 18-49 ratings).
