CBS, Univision top tame Tuesday

'NCIS' repeat leads night; 'Kennedy Center' tumbles

Auds flock to CBS drama ”NCIS” even in repeat, as Tuesday’s encore was easily the night’s No. 1 program in key demos and total viewers. The net’s annual airing of the ”Kennedy Center Honors” drew typically lackluster numbers and was down sharply vs. last year.

According to preliminary national estimates from Nielsen, CBS opened well with ”NCIS” (2.1 rating/6 share in adults 18-49, 12.5 million viewers overall), but ”The Kennedy Center Honors” settled for a 1.1/3 in the demo and 8.4 million viewers overall. This matches the show’s lowest 18-49 result to date and was down 27% from last year’s 1.5.

CBS won the night in 18-49 (tied with Univision), 25-54 and total viewers.

Univision earned a share of firstin 18-49 behind a two-hour episode of ”Una Familia Con Suerte (A Fortunate Family)” (1.7/5 in 18-49, 3.8 million viewers overall). In the 10 o’clock hour, ”Aqui y Ahora” did a 1.0/3 in 18-49 and 2.4 million viewers overall.

Elsewhere, ABC did OK with repeats of comedies ”Last Man Standing” (1.5/4 in 18-49, 6.1 million viewers overall at 8 p.m. and 1.5/4 in 18-49, 5.7 million viewers overall at 8:30), ”The Middle” (1.4/4 in 18-49, 4.7 million viewers overall) and ”Suburgatory” (1.2/3 in 18-49, 4.1 million viewers overall), followed by an encore of crime drama ”Body of Proof” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 5.1 million viewers overall).

ABC’s comedies certainly repeated better than Fox’s, as ”Glee” (0.7/2 in 18-49, 2.2 million viewers overall), ”New Girl” (1.0/3 in 18-49, 2.8 million viewers overall) and ”Raising Hope” (0.9/2 in 18-49, 2.7 million viewers overall) put up puny numbers. NBC similarly struggled on the night with repeats of the special ”The Biggest Loser: Where Are They Now?” (0.9/3 in 18-49, 3.0 million viewers overall) and drama ”Parenthood” (0.7/2 in 18-49, 2.0 million viewers overall).

Preliminary 18-49 averages for the night: CBS and Univision, 1.4/4; ABC, 1.3/4; NBC and Fox, 0.8/2; CW, 0.3/1.

In total viewers: CBS, 9.7 million; ABC, 5.1 million; Univision, 3.4 million; NBC, 2.7 million; Fox, 2.5 million; CW, 0.9 million.
