CBS Dominates Tuesday In The U.S. ITV #1 In The UK. Seven On Top In Australia.

Today, traditional TV still accounts for the lion’s share of video viewing, but online and mobile are where the growth is. From fourth quarter 2012 to fourth-quarter 2013, the hours consumers spent watching online video grew 30%. When managed together, TV/digital/mobile hold the potential to drive real impact for advertisers—enabling them to maximize the customers they reach and/or reinforce key messaging across screens. After all, ‘It’s all about screens’.

CBS was #1 as 'NCIS', the world's most watched drama, was the top program again on Tuesday.

CBS was #1 as ‘NCIS’, the world’s most watched drama, was the top program again on Tuesday.


The Tiffany Network laid down the law on Tuesday. And with it, victory as usual. At 8P, with a powerful episode having the NCIS team investigating the cause of a hit and run accident that resulted in the death of a Petty Officer, Gibbs searched for a way to clear a Navy Hospital Corpsman, who has served two medical tours in Afghanistan, after she was indicted for illegally providing medical aid to the victims of the crash, even though the surviving victims swear by her life-saving techniques. It as usual drew 17.89 million viewers and an 11.0/17. It was Must See TV ON DEMAND episode. At 9P, ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ dealt with a harrowing bit of cyber espionage. With 16.68 million viewers and a 10.0/15, the men and women of the New Orleans unit used every bit of their investigative powers to get through the maze of roadblocks and twists and turns after a sailor is murdered in the Mardi Gras storage area. It was Must See TV ON DEMAND. At 10P, ‘Person Of Interest’ was an episode that leads to an end shocker to be continued next week as a member of the team is about to be exposed. The entire episode was a vast improvement over the beginning of the season as 9.68 million viewers tuned in with a 6.1/10. Black Rock finished ahead of NBC by 76%.


The Peacock Network really didn’t have the muscle to challenge CBS. At 8P, ‘The Voice’ began the evening with 10.50 million viewers and a 7.1/11. But at 9P, ‘Marry Me’ dropped badly with only 5.32 million viewers and a 3.6/5. At 930P, ‘About a Boy’ really didn’t have a chance as the momentum of the drop from ‘Marry Me’ continued as it finished with 4.30 million viewers and a 2.9/5. At 10P, ‘Chicago Fire’ built from 66% from ‘About a Boy’ and finished with 7.70 million viewers and a 4.8/8.


The Alphabet Network could not hold it together on Tuesday. At 8P, a rerun of ‘Shark Tank’ stepped in for canceled sitcoms ‘Selfie’ and ‘Manhattan Love Story’ and finished in third-place with 4.50 million viewers and a 3.3/5. Next at 9P was relocated ‘Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD’ as it finished in third-place with 4.54 million viewers and a 3.1/5. And that led, at 10P, into a third place finish for ‘Forever’ which had a fantastic episode for those who love jazz and pulled in 4.41 million viewers and a 3.2/5. This was one of the best episodes in the new series run. It was Must See TV ON DEMAND. And to understand, you have to know what ‘6AM’ means to the world of jazz. Fantastic!


The Animal Network of Broadcast challenged ABC briefly but it wasn’t enough because the back-end fell off the wagon. At 8P, ‘MasterChef Junior’ challenged ‘Shark Tank’ with 4.18 million viewers and a 3.2/5, which was a huge improvement over the short-lived ‘Utopia’. At 9P, ‘New Girl’ died with 2.80 million viewers and a 2.3/4. Then at 930P, ‘The Mindy Project’ was DOA with 2.37 million viewers and a 2.0/3. It does not look good for the Murdoch Minions as both of the comedies should be axed.

The CW

The Little Network That Couldn’t almost did. At 8P, ‘The Flash’ continues to amaze. It pulled in 3.58 million viewers and a 2.6/4. At 9P, ‘Supernatural’ followed with 2.63 million viewers and a 1.6/2, which was one-tenth of a rating point (or 7%) from one week earlier and beat FOX in the last half hour in this time slot. With just a little bit more, LNTC could beat FOX.
