Ratings: “Scream Queens” Holds At Series Low; “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “New Girl” Slip For Crossover

The live+same-day ratings report was not kind to FOX’s Tuesday lineup. “Scream Queens” failed to rebound from its series low, while “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “New Girl” actually slipped for their crossover episodes.

According to fast national data posted by Showbuzz, Tuesday’s “Scream Queens” drew a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating and 1.64 million total viewers. The adults 18-49 rating ties the series low posted by the previous episode. The viewership figure, which trails the 1.70 million mark drawn by the last episode, represents a new low.

“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” posted a 0.9 adults 18-49 rating and 2.13 million total viewers in the 8PM half-hour. The numbers trail the 1.0 rating and 2.40 million audience figure garnered by the previous broadcast.

Airing at 8:30PM, “New Girl” drew a 0.9 rating and 1.96 million total viewers. Last week’s “New Girl” managed a 1.0 rating and 2.03 million in total viewership.

To preemptively counter the argument that last week’s episodes were bolstered by airing ahead of the Vice Presidential Debate (or without competition from an original “The Voice”), this week’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “New Girl” ratings also trail those posted on September 27.
