On Tuesday night, NCIS went below a 2.0 demo for the first time ever, but just barely. It fell nine tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. So after staying at 2.0 or above since its debut in 2003, it has finally dipped into the 1s. Still, this is an incredibly powerful show in its 13th season. At 9pm, NCIS: New Orleans was down 1.2 million viewers and two tenths in the demo. At 10pm, Limitless was down half a million viewers and even in the demo. On NBC, The Voice had a very weak night as it fell a million viewers and half a demo point for its worst performance ever in a regular timeslot. This show is fading hard down the stretch this spring. But it didn't hurt the Chicago twins. Chicago Med was up a million viewers and a tenth in the demo while Chicago Fire had an even better night as it rose half a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. That's right, it was just a tenth behind The Voice in the demo!

On ABC, The Real O'Neals went below 1.0 for the first time as all of ABC's new shows have that dubious distinction. It was down seven tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. The Real O'Neals has been having some positive weeks but this certainly won't help its chances. At 9pm, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was down a tenth in viewers and the demo. Beyond the Tank was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo at 10pm. Finally on FOX, New Girl aired for an hour and was down eight tenths in viewers and three tenths in the demo to a series low. Having both The Voice and NCIS back in the hour surely didn't help. At 9pm, the season finale of Brooklyn Nine-Nine actually built on the New Girl lead-in. It was down a tenth in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. At 9:30pm, The Grinder was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: Chicago Fire (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: The Voice (NBC)
