The cartoon movie has beaten Agents of SHIELD and The Voice.
Old does not mean is worse. Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer showed on Tuesday how a 49-year-old cartoon can beat some of the most expensive shows on television. The movie, which has been broadcasted on CBS since 1972, was the highest-rated program last night in adults 18-49 (3.0, up 3% from last year). Rudolf had 11.4 million viewers overall, the second-largest audience last night behind ABC’s Dancing With The Stars finale (14.6 million).
Good news also comes for Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD, which got its second largest audience of the season with 9.3 million viewers overall. The show perhaps benefited from the fact that it didn’t face CBS’s NCIS. SHIELD averaged a 2.5 rating in adults 18-49 and finished second across the board to Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.
Some other series also drew good numbers last night. At NBC, The Biggest Loser (2.0 in 18-49, 6.6 million viewers overall) and Chicago Fire (2.1 in 18-49, 7.0 million) were up a bit from last week. Not this good results for the The Voice, which was down with 2.9 in 18-49 and 10.0 million viewers overall.
Fox got its best ratings with New Girl (1.9 in 18-49, 3.5 million viewers overall) while Brooklyn Nine-Nine drew the largest audience for the network (1.5 in 18-49, 3.7 million).
At CW, The Originals (1.1/3 in 18-49, 2.3 million viewers overall) and Supernatural (1.0/3 in 18-49, 2.4 million viewers overall) delivered more good numbers.
