-Ratings Breakdown:
CBS led this final Tuesday in the household overnights care of its solid combination of “NCIS” (#1 for the night: 8.0 rating/13 share at 8 p.m.), “Bull” (#1t: 6.9/11 at 9 p.m.) and “NCIS: New Orleans” (#1: 5.4/10 at 10 p.m.). “If it ain’t broke, you don’t need to fix it,” so chances are this Tuesday line-up will remain intact on the Eye net next season. But NBC is the network to beat in for the night adults 18-49 (and all the key young adult demo groups) care of its pairing of “The Voice” (#2: 7.0/11), “This Is Us” (#1t: 6.9/11) and “Chicago Med” (#2: 4.8/ 9). Comparably, this was the highest-rated Tuesday telecast of “The Voice” since Oct. 10, 2017, and it bested the prior cycle’s finale (6.7 household rating on Dec. 19) by 4 percent.

Elsewhere, Fox finished in the distant No. 3 spot care of “Lethal Weapon” (#4: 3.0/ 5 at 8 p.m.) and 9-10 p.m. sitcoms “L.A. to Vegas” (#4: 1.7/ 3) and sophomore “The Mick” (#4: 1.4/ 2), which just do not resonate in the household overnights. ABC, which will get a Tuesday boost once the revival of “Roseanne” arrives on March 27, had nothing unusual to report with its line-up of “The Middle” (#3: 3.6/ 6), “Fresh Off the Boat” (#4: 2.2/ 4), repeats of “black-ish” (#3: 1.8/ 3) and “Modern Family” (#4: 1.4/ 2), and struggling freshman entry “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” (#3: 1.5/ 3). And retention for recent CW entry “Black Lightning” (#5: 1.3/ 2 at 9 p.m.), which is a shoo-in to return next season, was a solid 81 percent out of “The Flash” (#5: 1.6/ 3 at 8 p.m.).
