ABC’s live episode of “The Conners,” in which the characters reacted to the New Hampshire primary as the results came in, boosted the comedy to its highest total viewership since the season 1 finale.

Tuesday night’s episode scored a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49 and 6.3 million total viewers, a 19% bump on last episode. Later on in the night, the Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson-produced drama “For Life” debuted to a 0.7 rating and around 3.2 million total viewers, which represents a pretty average debut as far as new dramas this season are concerned.

“Bless This Mess” benefited from its’ larger “Conners” lead-in, ticking up to a 0.7 rating and 3.6 million viewers. Both “Black-ish” and its prequel series “Mixed-ish” came in at a 0.6 and drew 2.5 million viewers.

Meanwhile “This Is Us” topped the night ratings-wise with a 1.4 and 6.4 million total viewers, almost exactly the same figures it put up last episode. “New Amsterdam” followed it up with a 0.6 and 4.5 million viewers, which represents a series low in both metrics. “Ellen’s Game of Games” kicked off the night for NBC with a 0.9 and 4.5 million viewers.

CBS was the most watched network overall on the night, thanks to “NCIS” which ticked down a touch from last episode to a 1.0 rating and 11.6 million viewers. “FBI” came in at a 0.8 and 8.9 million viewers, while its “Most Wanted” spinoff posted a 0.6 and drew 6.1 million pairs of eyeballs.

Over on the CW, “The Flash” slowed down to a season low 0.3 rating and 1.1 million viewers, while “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” scored a 0.2 and around 750,000 viewers.
