Tuesday night had the return of Parks and Recreation for its final season on NBC. While it didn't set the world on fire, it was above most ratings last year and was one of the better comedy performances on NBC for the whole season. It's only airing for six more weeks so it may be able to go out on a decent night. The 9pm hour was much rougher, especially Marry Me at 9pm. It was up a tenth in viewers but down a tenth in the demo. Dead show walking now. About a Boy actually built from last week and the lead-in. It was up a tenth in viewers and the demo. Chicago Fire is getting screwed with these sitcom lead-ins. It was down a tenth in viewers and the demo for its worst performance since December 12, 2012. I can't imagine NBC is going to be OK with this kind of lead-in damage for one of their flagship shows, but we'll see. On CBS, it was another good week for NCIS, which was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. As usual, the veteran drama is being quite impressive in January. It wasn't quite as good a week for NCIS: New Orleans, which was just renewed for a second season. It easily won the 9pm hour, but it was down 1.3 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. Person of Interest closed things out up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

Over on ABC, a special Shark Tank airing was a better 8pm option than much of what ABC has aired here this season. It didn't help week two of Marvel's Agent Carter, though. That show fell 1.8 million viewers and four tenths in the demo from its two hour series premiere last week. It has already tied Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. low in the demo and it's probably not done dropping, so that's not a great sign. At 10pm, Forever was down a tenth in viewers and the demo, tying a series low. Finally on FOX, Masterchef Junior had another good week after its renewal announcement last week. It was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's third edition premiere. At 9pm, New Girl was down three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Hard to believe this show as losing to Marry Me in the demo at one point. The Mindy Project closed things out up two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: NCIS (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Marry Me (NBC)
