Follow HitFix: Follow @hitfix
NBC got yet another strong performance from "The Voice" and then watched the new reality dud "Ready For Love" squander nearly all of its lead-in. NBC still narrowly won Tuesday among young viewers, though a season low "NCIS" let CBS romp overall.
Meanwhile, ABC probably needs to stop referring to the plummeting "Splash" as a hit, CBS' "Golden Boy" got an encouraging bump and FOX's comedies were flat.
Among adults 18-49, NBC averaged a 2.4 rating on Tuesday night, edging out CBS' 2.2 rating in the key demographic. FOX's 1.8 rating and the 1.5 rating for ABC followed, while The CW did a 0.4 rating in the key demo.
Overall, though, CBS averaged an estimated 12.83 million viewers and an 8.1 rating/13 share, far ahead of ABC's 5.8/9 and 8.68 million viewers for Tuesday primetime. NBC was third with 6.88 million viewers and a 4.4/7, topping FOX's 2.5/4 and 3.96 million viewers. The CW averaged 956,000 viewers and a 0.7/1.
[Univision averaged 3.88 million viewers and a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 for Tuesday night.]
8 p.m. - "NCIS" won the 8 p.m. hour overall for CBS with 16.67 million viewers and finished second with a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49, both well below season averages. NBC's "The Voice" slipped only a hair from last week, averaging 12.95 million viewers and a 4.2 key demo rating. ABC's "Splash" dropped once again with 5.17 million viewers for third and a 1.2 key demo rating for fourth. Even FOX's "Hell's Kitchen" was down with 4.395 million viewers and a 1.8 key demo rating. The CW's "Hart of Dixie" returned after a brief layoff with 1.24 million viewers and a 0.6 key demo rating.
9 p.m. - "NCIS: Los Angeles" averaged 13.94 million viewers and a 2.6 rating among adults 18-49, winning the 9 p.m. hour for CBS. ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" results show was second with 11.815 million viewers and a 1.9 key demo rating. For the hour, NBC's "Ready For Love" averaged 4.55 and a 1.8 key demo rating. ["Ready For Love" did 5.37 million and a 2.1 key demo in its first half-hour and then dropped to 3.72 million and a 1.6 key demo and continued to lose viewers through each half-hour segment.] FOX was fourth overall and tied for third in the key demo with "New Girl" (4.23 million and a 2.2 key demo) and "The Mindy Project" (2.82 million and a 1.5 key demo). The CW's "Top Model" repeat averaged 673,000 viewers and a 0.3 key demo rating.
10 p.m. - ABC's "Body of Proof" was up week-to-week in viewers with 9.06 million to win the 10 p.m. hour, but slipped to second with a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49. CBS' "Golden Boy" averaged 7.89 million viewers and a 1.5 key demo rating, both up from last week. And, in its second hour, "Ready For Love" was down to 3.15 million viewers and a 1.3 key demo rating.
