'Trophy Wife' and 'About a Boy' lead small comedy risers
Fast National ratings for Tuesday, March 18, 2014.
NBC's "The Voice" was up slightly to help lead the network to victory in the key demographic, while "NCIS" led CBS' procedurals to their normal primetime sweep overall.
With "The Voice" up slightly, NBC's "About a Boy" and "Growing Up Fisher" both rose a hair and have settled in very quickly with numbers that probably please the network.
Over on FOX, "Glee" got a small bump for its ballyhooed 100th episode, but for some reason FOX decided to follow that episode with a "New Girl" repeat, though "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was in line with last week's performance -- down in the demo, up in viewers -- even without a lead-in.
Despite the promise of "Avengers" sequel news, ABC's "Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe" special did only lackluster numbers, but "The Goldbergs" and "Trophy Wife" were both up.
On to the numbers...
