On Tuesday night, NBC had good news for its new freshman drama This is Us. First up though, The Voice had a great second Tuesday, dropping just two tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last Tuesday. Then at 10pm, week two of This is Us was down 1.3 million viewers but just two tenths in the demo with a very solid 2.6 demo. It has earned its full season that was announced yesterday. NBC probably wishes they didn't have to preempt it next week for the Vice Presidential Debate, but it will get to return still following The Voice, but at the higher viewed 9pm hour so it should continue to do well. On ABC, another results edition of Dancing with the Stars was pretty low with a 1.3 demo. I know these bloated results editions were added because of the debate next week but they're not worth it for ABC. The new comedy lineup begins in two weeks after next week's debate. At 10pm, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo, tying a series low in the demo.

On CBS, NCIS was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's season premiere. The show tragically had their showrunner die in his sleep last night so there will be some upheaval with the CBS stalwart. At 9pm, week two of Bull took a typical week two drop, dropping two million viewers and three tenths in the demo. It would have been better if it could have stayed in the 2s but we'll have to see where it stabilizes. Next time it airs, it will face the ABC comedy lineup and This is Us instead of The Voice. There was good news at 10pm where NCIS: New Orleans was down three tenths in viewers but up a tenth in the demo. So far, this looks like a pretty good 10pm performer. Finally, it was an ugly second week for FOX Tuesday. Brooklyn Nine-Nine held up the best, dropping a tenth in viewers and the demo. New Girl was down three tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo and Scream Queens completely fell off the map, dropping half a million viewers and three tenths in the demo to a horrible 0.7 demo. There's got to be a point where the other values of this show for FOX don't make up for the terrible same day ratings.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: NCIS: New Orleans (CBS)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Scream Queens (FOX)
