Tuesday Final Nationals: CBS Tops Night Despite ‘Kennedy Center Honors’ Dipping to All-Time Adults 18-49 Low

CBS was Tuesday’s top network with the night’s lone TV program to draw more than 10 million total viewers — a rerun of “NCIS” — and the “38th Annual Kennedy Center Honors”.

The Kennedy Center Honors tied its Dec. 29, 2013 telecast for the event’s all-time low among adults 18-49 and drew its fourth lowest total audience since at least 2002. Only the editions from 2002 (7.2 million), 2007 (6.22 million) and 2013 (7.18 million) drew fewer within the time frame.
