-Ratings Breakdown:
NBC ruled in the Tuesday household overnights, as usual, with its line-up of “NCIS” (#1 for the night: 8.4/14), “Bull” (#2: 6.8/11) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (#1: 6.2/11). Comparably, “NCIS: New Orleans” outdelivered the competition combined — the season (or series) finale of “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Brothers” on NBC (#2: 2.9/ 5) and “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” on ABC (#3: 1/9/ 4). But NBC is still the network to beat in adults 18-49 (and all the key demo groups) on Tuesday.

“The Voice” opened the evening with a solid 6.4/10 in the household overnights at 8 p.m., leading into a dominant 7.1/11 for “This Is Us” at 9 p.m., which year-to-year increased by 13 percent. When Justin Hartley as Kevin submits a performance to review to the Emmy voters from this season, last night’s episode was definitiely it.

On ABC, the final season of “The Middle” is the only Tuesday sitcom still resonating, with a third-place 4.0/ 7 in the 8 p.m. half-hour. Question for ABC: Why not reconsider and grant this underrated gem a 10th season? Next was “Fresh Off the Boat” at a 2.7/ 4 (#3t) at 8:30 p.m., which slide by 32 percent. And that led into “black-ish” (#3: 2.9/ 5) and struggling freshman “The Mayor” (#3: 1.9/ 3) from 9-10 p.m. Despite its ongoing lackluster showing, ABC has ordered three additional scripts for “The Mayor.”

Elsewhere, Fox was at typical Tuesday overnight levels care of “Lethal Weapon” (#4: 2.8/ 4 from 8-9 p.m.) and 9-10 p.m. comedies “The Mick” (#4: 2.8/ 5) and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” (#3t: 2.7/ 4). And The CW featured “The Flash” (#5: 1.9/ 3 at 8 p.m.), which remains the network’s most-watched show, and “D.C.’s Legends of Tomorrow” (#5: 1.2/ 2 at 9 p.m.).
