TV Ratings: Tuesday win for CBS repeats
ABC, NBC, FOX and The CW all had original programming on Tuesday night, but none of that was a match for CBS' procedural repeats.
Among adults 18-49, NBC and CBS tied with a 1.6 rating. FOX was third with a 1.3 rating in the key demographic, followed by the 0.7 rating for ABC and the 0.4 rating for The CW.
Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 9.18 million viewers to go with a 6.2 rating/11 share, nearly doubling up the 3.4/6 for second place NBC. FOX was third with a 2.8/5, with ABC's 1.6/3 and the 0.8/1 for The CW bringing up the rear.
In the 8 p.m. hour, CBS' "NCIS" had a 6.9/13, far ahead of the 3.0/6 for NBC's "I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!," though it should be noted that NBC's reality trainwreck actually won the hour in the 18-49 demographic with a 1.7 rating. FOX's "House" took third, beating the 2.0/4 for two episodes of "According to Jim" on ABC. The CW's "90210" trailed.
"The Mentalist" gave CBS the 9 p.m. with with a 6.7/11. FOX's "Mental" and NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" tied for second with a 3.0/5 and also tied for second in the 18-49 demographic. ABC's "Scrubs" and "Better Off Ted" only barely beat the 0.9/1 for The CW's new "Hitched or Ditched."
CBS' "48 Hours Mystery" won the 10 p.m. hour with a 5.1/9. NBC's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" was a solid second overall and nipped CBS in the 18-49 demo. On ABC, the series finale of "Cupid" had a dismal 1.5/3 for third.
