TV Ratings: 'CSI' Rises in Tuesday Outing
CBS led Tuesday night, despite the fact that it devoted the bulk of the evening to repeats — save for a special CSI, which pulled a 1.6 rating among adults 18-49. That marked a season high for the aging procedural, which last pulled a 1.3 in the demo in its regular Sunday slot.

MasterChef also netted a 1.6 rating in the key demo on Fox, slipping two-tenths of a point from last week's episode. Agent Carter, back from a week off, also dropped by two-tenths in the demo and netted just a 1.3 rating with adults under 50.
Parks and Recreation, with another batch of back-to-back episodes, averaged a 1.4 and 1.3 rating with adults 18-49. Those were both in line with last week's episodes. Also steady, but significantly lower, were Mary Me (0.7 adults) and About a Boy (0.8 adults). (NBC's second hour of original comedies matched Fox's 9 p.m. showing with repeats of New Girl and The Mindy Project.)
The Flash (1.3 adults) and Supernatural (0.8 adults) both held on the CW.
