TV Ratings: CBS Dramas Climb, 'The Voice' Drops


8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 23 (CBS)

CBS nabbed a Tuesday victory over NBC last night, with all three of its dramas up from their showings a week ago. The trio were each up by three-tenths of a point, with NCIS and its 2.6 rating among adults 18-49 leading the pack. NCIS: New Orleans (2.3 adults) and Person of Interest (1.6 adults) followed suit.

Though The Voice was off from last week, by four-tenths of a point, it did tie NCIS for top demo performer of the night with a 2.6 rating. Even fatigued, The Voice still lifted Marry Me (1.6 adults) and About a Boy (1.3 adults) — both of which dropped in their last outing two weeks ago without the lead-in. Chicago Fire (2.0 adults) lost only two-tenths of a point from last week's hyped crossover kickoff.

MasterChef Junior (1.5 adults) lost three-tenths of a point on Fox ahead of steady episodes of New Girl (1.3 adults) and The Mindy Project (1.1 adults).

And ABC likely isn't too concerned with its decision to ditch a Selfie burn-off for repeats of Shark Tank. The average 1.1 rating during the 8 p.m. hour was better than the network had pulled in weeks with the comedy. Agents of SHIELD (1.6 adults) and Forever (1.0 adults) were both steady.

As for The CW, The Flash (1.3 adults) and Supernatural (1.0 adults) held steady in the demo — while the latter posted its most-watched episode (3.6 million viewers) since January.
