A bunch of “Prison Break” viewers have escaped from Fox.

Last night, the revived series lost 27 percent of its key 18-49 demo rating from the prior week’s premiere. The overall audience loss week over week was 16 percent.

Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” returned soft on Tuesday, an evening without much to write home about. Almost by default — and mostly due to “The Voice” — NBC won the main demographic. CBS topped total viewers despite airing all reruns.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.0 rating/4 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and second in total viewers with an average of 4.7 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” at 8 p.m. posted a 1.6/7 and 7.7 million viewers. At 9, “Trial & Error” had a 0.9/4 and 3.8 million viewers. A second episode at 9:30 got a 0.8/3 and 2.9 million viewers. A repeat followed.

ABC and Fox tied for second in ratings, both with a 0.9/4. ABC was third in total viewers with 3.5 million, Fox was fourth with 2.6 million.

For ABC, “The Middle” at 8 had a 1.2/5 and 5.2 million viewers. At 8:30, “American Housewife” got a 1.1/4 and 4.2 million viewers. “Fresh Off the Boat” at 9 received a 1.1/4 and 3.1 million viewers. “Imaginary Mary” at 9:30 managed a 0.8/3 and 3.1 million viewers. “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” at 10 settled for a 0.7/3 and 2.3 million viewers.

For Fox, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” at 8 had a 0.7/3 and 1.9 million viewers. At 8:30, “The Mick” got a 0.8/3 and 2.2 million viewers. “Prison Break” at 9 received a 1.1/4 and 3.2 million viewers.

CBS was fourth in ratings with a 0.8/3, but first in viewers with 7.7 million, running just repeats.

Univision and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.5/2. Univision was fifth in total viewers with 1.6 million, Telemundo was sixth with 1.4 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.3/1 and in viewers with 856,000. Following a rerun, “iZombie” at 9 had a 0.3/1 and 849,000 viewers.
