NCIS scored an across-the-board ratings win Tuesday night, leading in both adults 18-49 and total viewers.

The veteran CBS drama even tied for the lead among adults 18-34 on the broadcast networks, along with The Voice and Masterchef Junior. It was the only network show to break a 1.0 in the 18-49 demographic, finishing with a 1.1 (even with last week), and its 11.57 million viewers led the field by a wide margin.

Following NCIS, FBI clocked in at 0.8 among adults 18-49, off slightly week to week, and NCIS: New Orleans ticked up to 0.7.

ABC comedies American Housewife (0.9, 4.25 million viewers) and The Kids Are Alright (0.7, 3.25 million) both hit two-month highs in viewers and improved in adults 18-49. Black-ish (0.7), Bless This Mess (0.7) and ABC News' 1969 (0.4) were all even with last week.

At NBC, The Voice (0.9) matched last week's series low. The Village, however, improved to 0.7 in the 18-49 demo after two weeks at 0.6. New Amsterdam was steady at 0.8.

The season premiere of The 100 drew a 0.3 in adults 18-49 on The CW, in line with its 2017-18 average, following a 0.5 for The Flash. Masterchef Junior held at 0.7 for Fox, and Mental Samurai rose a little to 0.6.
