NCIS Bishop Nick

In the latest TV show ratings, CBS’ NCIS delivered 9.8 million total viewers and a 0.9 demo rating, ticking up and leading Tuesday in both measures.

Leading out of that, FBI (8.1 mil/0.8) enjoyed a nice bump versus its previous Tuesday tallies following Sunday’s post-NFL showcase, while FBI: Most Wanted (6.1 mil/0.6) was steady.


ABC | Leading out of To Tell the Truth (4.3 mil/0.6), black-ish (3 mil/0.6, read recap) improved on its fall Wednesday averages (2.5 mil/0.5), while mixed-ish (2.6 mil/0.6, read recap) was up a tick from its freshman finale. Big Sky (3.7 mil/0.6, read recap) was steady in the demo after a six-week break.

FOX | The Resident (3.6 mil/0.6) was steady, Prodigal Son (2.2 mil/0.4) dipped.

NBC | Zoey’s Playlist (2.3 mil/0.5) ticked up in the demo, while Nurses (1.7 mil/0.2) stayed low with no fresh This Is Us lead-in.

THE CW | Two-Sentence Horror Stories (450K/0.1) and Trickster (403K/0.1) were steady.

The Live+Same Day numbers reported in our ratings column do not reflect a show’s overall performance, given the increased use of delayed playback via DVR and streaming platforms, plus out-of-home viewing. These numbers (Nielsen fast nationals, unless denoted as finals) instead aim to simply illustrate trends or superlatives. Happy Fun Ball may suddenly accelerate to dangerous speeds.
