"The Voice" was still Tuesday's top show, but the NBC smash dipped to season lows, helping CBS win the night among young viewers in addition to its normal overall domination.
CBS wasn't having such a great night either as both "NCIS" and "NCIS: Los Angeles" hit or matched season lows. In fact, which it comes to shows rising week-to-week, you're looking at ABC's "Body of Proof" and not much else.
Among adults 18-49, CBS averaged a 2.2 rating for Tuesday night, edging out NBC's 2.1 rating in the key demographic. ABC and FOX both posted a 1.5 rating in the key demo, while The CW had a 0.4 key demo rating.
