Tuesday was another strong one for The Flash. The CW's top series was slightly improved, week-to-week, for an average 1.4 rating among adults 18-49.

That was enough to tie it to lead the 8 p.m. hour across all of broadcast TV, a title it shared with a repeat of the ever-dependable NCIS on CBS.

NBC led the night with a block of steady original outings for Hollywood Game Night (1.2 adults), Chicago Med (1.6 adults) and Chicago Fire (1.8 adults). CBS followed its NCIS encore with repeats of NCIS: New Orleans (1.2 adults) and Limitless (0.8 adults).

The Fox comedy block of New Girl (1.2 adults), Grandfathered (0.9 adults), Brooklyn Nine-Nine (1.0 adults) and The Grinder (0.7 adults) held steady — as did ABC's Agent Carter (0.9 adults). ABC also saw the return of What Would You Do?, which averaged a 0.7 rating in the key demo.
