Tuesday evening’s TV ratings are in.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • ABC’s Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. saw a ratings uptick of 5% from last week’s 1.9, scoring a 2.0 rating in the 18-49 demo and bringing in 5.07 million viewers.  Read Evan’s recap here.
  • Over on Fox, New Girl returned from a brief hiatus to a series low 1.1 rating and notched 2.2 million viewers.  The show has lost quite a bit of steam since its debut, but Fox has already ordered a fourth season.
  • On the flipside, NBC’s new series About a Boy saw a rise of 12% from last week’s series low 1.7 rating to a 1.9 rating in the demo and 7.23 million viewers.
