agents of shield march 11 14 rtgs TV ratings: 'The Voice' and 'About a Boy' dip Tuesday while 'Agents of SHIELD' improvesFast National ratings for Tuesday, March 11, 2014

The start of daylight saving time, which usually depresses TV ratings, doesn’t seem to be having as big an effect as it has in years past. “The Voice” and “Glee” were both down Tuesday night at 8, but “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” and “The Originals” each improved a bit over last week.

Also Tuesday, “The Voice’s” slip led to somewhat lower ratings for “About a Boy” and “Growing Up Fisher,” although both still put up decent numbers. “Chicago Fire,” however, turned in its best 18-49 rating since early January. “New Girl” and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” were also down for FOX.

Despite airing a full night of repeats, CBS still led the night in total viewers with 9.4 million and a 6.2 rating/10 share in households. NBC (9.2 million, 5.9/10) finished a close second. ABC (4 million, 2.6/4) came in third. FOX’s 2.4 million viewers and 1.6/3 beat out The CW’s 1.65 million and 1.0/2.

NBC led all three hours of primetime in adults 18-49, averaging a 2.4 rating. ABC came in second with a 1.4, followed closely by CBS, 1.3, and FOX, 1.1. The CW posted a 0.7.
