A dimming lead-in from 'The Voice' brings down the freshman NBC comedy.

NBC and CBS shared a demo victory Tuesday night. The Voice still topped among individual programs, though its 1.6 rating among adults 18-49 ranks as a season low.

After The Voice, back-to-back episodes of Great News were diminished from last week's premiere night. The first episode fell to a 0.8 adults rating and the second episode dipped to a concerning 0.6 adults rating. The NBC lineup rebounded with a steady 1.2 rating among adults 18-49.

NCIS posted its most narrow No. 2 status to The Voice in, well, potentially ever. The CBS drama averaged a steady 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 at 8 p.m. It was followed by steady episodes of Bull and NCIS: New Orleans, each of which averaged a 1.2 rating in the demo.

With the exception of a dipping episode of The Middle (1.1 adults), the ABC block of American Housewife (1.2 adults), Fresh Off the Boat (1.0 adults), Imaginary Mary (0.7 adults) and Agents of SHIELD (0.7 adults) all held steady.

On Fox, already renewed The Mick wrapped its first season down to a 0.7 rating among adults 18-49, though it was a 10th of a point better than lead-in Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Prison Break leveled off with another 0.9 rating among adults 18-49.

The Flash (1.0 adults) and iZombie (0.3 adults) were unmoved.
