A pair of new ABC comedies didn’t exactly come roaring out of the gate Tuesday, as “Selfie” and “Manhattan Love Story” posted modest ratings with their premieres. New drama “Forever” was also down, so ABC’s Tuesday problems might not be quite over yet.

CBS drew 15.3 million viewers and a 9.6 rating/16 share in households in primetime, beating out NBC (12 million, 7.3/12) for the lead. ABC finished a distant third with 4.9 million viewers and a 3.2/5. FOX (2.2 million, 1.4/2) took fourth, and The CW trailed with just shy of a million viewers and a 0.6/1.

NBC led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 3.5 rating. CBS came in second with a 2.2. ABC was third at 1.5, followed by FOX, 1.0, and The CW, 0.4.
