Ratings: ‘Biggest Loser’ Flat as ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.’ Steady (Updated)

NBC counts on “Voice” to finish tops in ratings

Editor’s Note: An earlier version of this story noted that “Biggest Loser” was down compared to its January debut, but with updated numbers it is flat with its debut last fall, a more apples-to-apples comparison.

ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” held onto its viewers Tuesday night against NBC’s “Biggest Loser” premiere, which was flat in the key demo from its previous fall season premiere.

Still, NBC was first in ratings with a 2.8 rating/8 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary numbers. It was second in total viewers with an average of 9.3 million, behind CBS, which averaged 15.2 million total viewers.

The premiere of “The Biggest Loser” season 15 at 8 earned a 2.2/7 — down 27 percent from January’s season 14 debut — and 7 million viewers. “The Voice” at 9 received a 3.9/10 — making it the highest-rated show of the night — and 12.7 million viewers. “Chicago Fire” at 10 got a 2.4/7 and 8.2 million viewers.
