Tuesday Final Nationals: ‘Crowded’ Preview on NBC Attracts Decent Sampling

After a one-week absence from the top, CBS returned with all-original programming on this Tuesday night — including the 300th episode of “NCIS” — as it regained the Tuesday lead in total viewers with a prime time average of 10.99 million.

NBC was tops in adults 18-49 (2.3 rating/8 share), adults 18-34 (1.4/6) and adults 25-54 (3.2/9).

The 2-episode series preview of new NBC family sitcom “Crowded” had respectable ratings, easily winning the 10-11 p.m. hour on all of TV among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54. The adults 18-49 ratings of “Crowded” nearly matched the adults 18-49 rating of CBS and ABC combined in each half hour: at 10 p.m. (1.7 vs. 1.2+0.6) and at 10:30 p.m. (1.4 vs. 1.0+0.5).

“Crowded”, starring Patrick Warburton, Carrie Preston, Miranda Cosgrove and Stacy Keach, moves to its regular Sunday night and 9:30 p.m. time starting March 20.
