The first episode of the NBC show at 8 p.m. drew a 2.2 rating in adults 18-49 and 8.8 million viewers. That is up approximately 30 percent in the demo and 20 percent in total viewers compared to the Dec. 18 preview. A second new episode at 9 built on the lead-in from the first, drawing a 2.4 and 8.9 million viewers.

Also on Tuesday, Fox debuted the new comedy “LA to Vegas.” The series debut drew a 1.1 and 3.8 million viewers, airing at 9 p.m. That is up approximately 38 percent compared to “The Mick’s” performance in the same time slot this fall, where it averaged a 0.8. It is also Fox’s highest-rated Tuesday comedy telecast since last January.

After “Game of Games,” “Chicago Med” (1.5, 6.9 million) hit a season high in the demo.

Prior to “LA to Vegas,” “Lethal Weapon” (1.1, 4.6 million) ticked up in both measures. “The Mick” (0.8, 2.3 million) was even at 9:30.

On ABC, “The Middle” (1.5, 6.3 million) and “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.2, 4.2 million) were up. New episodes of “Black-ish” (1.1, 4 million) and “Kevin Probably Saves the World” (0.7, 2.6 million) were even.

For CBS, “NCIS” (1.5, 13.9 million) ticked up in total viewers. “Bull” (1.2, 11 million) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (1.0, 9 million) were even.

The CW aired only repeats.

NBC won the night in the demo with a 2.0 but finished second in total viewers with 8.2 million. CBS was second in the demo with a 1.2 but first in viewers with 11.3 million.
