Ratings: Goldbergs, Trophy Wife Steady Without S.H.I.E.L.D.; X Factor Drops
Troy Gentile, Sean Giambrone
ABC's new comedies did just fine without Agent Coulson.
Following a repeat of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Goldbergs drew 5.4 million viewers and a 1.7 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic Tuesday, staying flat with last week, while Trophy Wife (4.3 million, 1.4) improved two tenths. Both shows were likely helped by going up against a special X Factor (4.8 million, 1.5), which plummeted 25 percent from its last new episode nearly three weeks ago, instead of Fox's usual Tuesday comedies.

NBC won the night with The Voice (11.4 million, 3.5), but it fell six tenths week-to-week. The Biggest Loser (5.9 million, 1.8) dropped 10 percent.
On CBS, NCIS (19 million, 3.0) was even and NCIS: Los Angeles (14.8 million, 2.6) climbed a tenth, but Person of Interest (11.9 million, 1.8) hit a series low against the second hour of The Voice.
