Fresh Off the Boat (8-8:30pm – 5.8 million and 1.9/6 in AD18-49): At 8pm opposite the start of NBC’s 2-hour The Voice premiere, ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat held steady week to week in Adults 18-49 (1.9/6) to match its best Tuesday performance. In addition, the new comedy was up for the 2nd week in a row in Adults 18-34 (+9%), tied a series high in Teens 12-17 and set a new series high with Kids 2-11 (+50%). The ABC freshman was Tuesday’s #1 comedy for the 3rd consecutive week in Total Viewers and Adults 18-49.
