‘FBI’ Reruns Top Tuesday Ratings Due To Canceled NCAA Bowl Game

by Joe Rutland

Thanks to a cancellation of one of the NCAA college football bowl games, CBS drama FBI ends up topping the Tuesday night TV ratings.

We get a little more information about this from an article by Deadline.

Fox had planned to air the Holiday Bowl but UCLA had to pull out of the game against North Carolina State due to COVID-19 issues. So, the network opted to show a rerun of The Masked Singer which had 1.03 million viewers and a 0.2 demo rating.

For the 8 p.m. Eastern timeslot, FBI was the night’s most-watched program. It had 4.88 million viewers and a 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demo. Sure, repeats don’t usually do well on TV.

After FBI aired, its spin-offs FBI: International, which had 3.43 million viewers and a 0.3 demo rating, and FBI: Most Wanted, with 3.1 million viewers and a 0.3 rating, held a steady audience. Tying with the FBIs in demo rating was a black-ish marathon (0.3, 2.07M) on ABC.

What about NBC? It was rerun time, too, with American Auto, 0.2, 1.67M; Grand Crew, 0.2, 0.95; This Is Us, 0.2, 1.30M; and New Amsterdam, 0.1, 1.11M, airing on the network.

Over on the CW, Popstar’s Best of 2021, 0.1, 0.34M, had host Elizabeth Stanton revisit some of 2021’s most memorable moments and trends. That was followed up by episodes of Masters of Illusion.

‘FBI’ Star Jeremy Sisto Talks About Job He Held Before Acting

Looking at the record of so many actors, one finds out that they had to take on different jobs before finding success in the world of show business.

This is definitely true for FBI star Jeremy Sisto.

Sisto, who plays Jubal Valentine, talks about this job that he helped before becoming an actor. He also shares his experiences with Us Magazine.

He says that he “was a Sandwich Artist at Subway.”

So, there you go, Outsiders.

FBI is part of another franchise of shows from Dick Wolf. Sisto has been on there since Season 1 of the show.

Missy Peregrym, Sisto’s co-star on the show, found herself having to adapt rather quickly to New York City.

But it was not an overnight matter. Hardly.

Listen to what the FBI star says about her sojourns through the Big Apple. Talk about a wild ride.

“Even the pilot was like Harlem, Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Long Island,” she said in an interview with Gonzo Okanagan. “I’m like how big is this place, honestly? And I feel really misled by people who are like, ‘I’m from Brooklyn.’

“I’m like it’s humongous,” Peregrym says. “That tells me nothing. It’s a fascinating place.”

Peregrym plays Maggie Bell and you can catch her and Sisto on Tuesday nights on CBS.
