Tuesday Final Nationals: CBS Reigns Overall

[socialpoll id=”2333993″]

The reliable highly-viewed duo of long-running “NCIS” and spinoff “NCIS: New Orleans” made CBS the overall leader on Tuesday night, earning top honors in all key figures: among total viewers (12.25 million), adults 18-49 (1.8 rating/6 share), adults 25-54 (2.7/8), and adults 18-34 (1.0/4).

The network’s weak spot on the night, however, was freshman drama “Limitless” which dipped to a season-low in total audience and matched a season-low in adults 18-49, according to live+same day data.
