Tuesday night had CBS on top with its drama lineup. At 8pm, NCIS was down 1.1 million viewers but even in the demo. Hitting a 3 demo is not very common for any shows any more so this continues to be very impressive. At 9pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo with its last airing in December. It was also pretty much right on par with the numbers the series premiere of Intelligence got in this slot. However, I'm sure Los Angeles would fall apart Intelligence style if it were moved to Mondays and honestly that might be a move CBS should think about next season. At 10pm, Person of Interest was up four tenths in viewers and even in the demo. On NBC, The Biggest Loser was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo while Chicago Fire was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo. It's a little lower this week but it's still being a standalone show, which is good.

On ABC, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. started off the night down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. At 9pm, The Goldbergs was down four tenths in viewers and up a tenth in the demo. It rose to its best demo since the third week of the season, way back on October 8. Back then, it was following a 2.9 demo while it is now following a 2.2 demo. It's still low but there is some buzz growing for this show. Why oh why won't ABC move this show to Wednesdays? At 9:30pm, Trophy Wife was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo. Finally at 10pm, week two of Killer Women was predictably disastrous as it was down half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. It is in instant cancellation territory with a 0.7 demo. It's tough to say what ABC will do - Lucky 7 was cancelled after falling to a 0.7 demo in week two while The Assets was cancelled after falling to a 0.6. However, Betrayal has dropped to a 0.7 and ABC has kept it on the air. With only eight episodes to air, I think ABC may not want to cancel two shows in a row this quickly after The Assets. Unless it goes even lower this week, ABC may just see it through.

Finally, FOX had a second straight Tuesday where nothing topped a 1.6 demo. At 8pm, Dads was down four tenths in viewers and a rough three tenths in the demo. This show had a surprising showing last week but it came falling back. At 8:30pm, Golden Globe winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine was up a tenth in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. While it didn't get any sort of Globes bounce, it was the most watched show in the block. At 9pm, New Girl was even with last week but these numbers are still so troubling for a show that was a new bright spot in FOX's lineup two years ago. It does still get decent DVR gains and skews young but the path is not good for this show. At 9:30pm, The Mindy Project was down a tenth in viewers and two tenths in the demo for a series low at a rough 1.1 demo.
