Returning from a one-week hiatus, FOX’s Tuesday lineup remained unimpressive from a ratings standpoint.

While the adults 18-49 rating, total viewership number, and overnight household rating do not always move identically, the minimal increase in the household number almost certainly rules out big growth in the former two. Adults 18-49 and total viewership data will be published by 11:15AM ET.
