agents of shield ratings nov 12 13 TV ratings: 'Agents of SHIELD' hits low, 'Originals' scores series high TuesdayFast National ratings for Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2013

ABC had some bad news Tuesday, as “Agents of SHIELD” recorded its smallest overnight ratings to date. There was some good news too, though, as both “The Goldbergs” and “Trophy Wife” improved a little on last week’s numbers.

Also Tuesday, “The Originals” scored its biggest total audience of the season and matched its best adults 18-49 and 18-34 ratings. “Supernatural” was also up week to week. “The Voice” ticked up slightly for NBC, and “Chicago Fire” returned from a three-week break to slightly better numbers. CBS’ “Person of Interest” rose as well, but FOX’s comedies all dropped.

CBS drew 15.5 million viewers and a 9.6 rating/15 share in households in primetime, finishing way ahead of second-place NBC (8.5 million, 5.4/8). ABC (4.95 million, 2.9/5) took third. FOX came in fourth with 3.1 million viewers and a 2.0/3, beating out The CW’s 2.4 million and 1.4/2.

NBC scored a narrow win among adults 18-49, with its 2.5 rating just beating CBS’ 2.4. ABC finished third at 1.5, followed by FOX, 1.4, and The CW, 1.1.
