Leroy Jethro Gibbs leads the ‘NCIS’ crew to another victory on Tuesday.


It was an all rerun Tuesday for CBS. And no matter what the others through at it, The Tiffany Network had the answer in ‘NCIS’; NCIS: LA’ & ‘Person Of Interest’ even if they were all reruns. At 8P, ‘NCIS’ reran the sordid episode of a marine being killed by US construction workers and it finished with 13.94 million viewers. They draw 14 million and they did it with an old rerun. At 9P, ‘NCIS:LA’ finished an old arc with the terrifically evil Christopher Lambert playing Callen’s nemesis and it drew 10.36 million viewers. At 10P, ‘Person Of Interest’ reran the cold episode out on Long Island during a storm featuring all of the old players. Problem is that when you kill off a main character, they probably should stay killed for a couple of months before rerunning her back into the story line. It drew 7.33 million viewers and still won their time slot.

Note: When it comes to Billion Dollar Programs, you have to have programs that draw consistently over the 10+ million original viewing episodes. CBS has two such programs, even in reruns, on Tuesday. No other network came close on this day.

NBC finished second as at 8P, ‘The Biggest Loser’ in its two hour run pulled in 6.63 million viewers to finish a distant second in their time slot. At 10P, ‘Chicago Fire’ had 7.03 million viewers, again to finish second in their time slot with an original episode against a rerun which finished above them.

FOX at 8P had ‘Dads’ which drew 3.89 million viewers good for the #3 position in its time slot followed by ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ which had 4.55 million viewers. At 9P, ‘New Girl’ finished with 3.73 million viewers while at 930P, ‘The Mindy Project’ drew 3.03 million viewers.

ABC began at 8P with ‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’ and pulled in 3.67 million viewers with a rerun. At 9P, ‘The Goldbergs’ brought in 4.73 million to finish second. At 930P, ‘Trophy Wife’ had 3.48 million viewers while at 10P, the now cancelled ‘Killer Women’ pulled in 3.59 million viewers.

The CW at 8P, ‘The Originals’ pulled in 2.35 million viewers while at 9P, ‘Supernatural’ drew 2.7 million viewers.

For the record, CBS finished with 10.545 million viewers and a 6.0 ratings and a 10 share of available audience. NBC drew 6.762 million viewers and finished with a 4.6 rating and 7 share. FOX finished with 3.798 million viewers and a 2.7/4 while ABC drew 3.791 million viewers and had a 2.8 rating and 4 share. Univision drew 3.191 million viewers. The CW drew 2.526 million viewer and had a 1.6 rating and 2 share. Telemundo finished with a 0.8/1.

Bill Cosby Is Coming Back to NBC.

Bill Cosby Is Coming Back to NBC.


NBC has made a deal with Bill Cosby to develop a new family comedy. Cosby, of course, turned NBC into a Thursday night powerhouse back in the 1980s with his comedy The Cosby Show. Now, however, Thursdays are the weakest night n the network’s schedule. He will team up with Tom Werner, who produced ‘The Cosby Show’ and is now one of the owners of the Boston Red Sox. For anyone who ever watched ‘The Cosby Show’ this will be a ‘can’t miss’ opportunity for rediscovery. NBC needs it.

Syfy’s new reality series ‘Opposite Worlds’ became the channel’s most watched reality premiere in six months among Adults 18-49, averaging 645,000 viewers in that key demographic. The series, hosted by Luke Tipple (Capture), delivered one million total viewers during its telecast Tuesday evening at 10P.

We welcome new visitors from the U.S. the UK, Canada, Brazil, Ireland, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany, Turkey, Russian Federation, China and Japan.
