Ratings: NCIS Tops Night, Parenthood Rises

NCIS dominated the Tuesday tallies this week, delivering 19.2 million total viewers and a 3.8 demo rating (up 6 percent week-to-week). NCIS: LA led out of that with 15.35 million viewers (a veritable tie with DWTS) and a time slot-winning 3.3. The Good Wife — almost kinda-sorta (but not) guest-starring Chris Noth! — then capped CBS’ night with an audience of 10.9 mil and a 2.0 rating, on par with its previous performance.

Elsewhere this Tuesday:

* NBC’s Parenthood (5.1 million/2.0) made a case for popping that pesky renewal bubble once and for all by registering gains of 8 and 5 percent, respectively.

* The Dancing With the Stars results show matched its week-ago numbers, with 15.46 million viewers and a 3.0 rating.
