Tuesday night brought a mixed bag for NBC. First up at 8pm, The Voice was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo, holding up much better week to week than Monday's edition. At 9pm, the phenom This is Us celebrated its penultimate episode by rising 1.8 million viewers and a stunning half a demo point to a new series high. It also hit a 3.0 in January, but that was fudged a bit by unusual scheduling that night with President Obama's Farewell Address. This is an outright, legitimate series high and it begs the question, how high can it go for the season finale next week? But the great news at 9pm did not extend to 10pm where another episode of Chicago Justice did not get the sampling it should have. It was even below Sunday night's episode and got only a 1.3 demo out of the huge lead-in. I believe Chicago Fire would have done significantly better here. Maybe NBC has now overdone it with the Chicago shows. We'll see how Justice holds up in its regular slot this Sunday.

On ABC, The Middle was down two tenths in viewers and even in the demo while American Housewife was even. Fresh Off the Boat and The Real O'Neals went back to their regular 9pm hour after airing at 8pm last week. Both shows were down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is taking a break for the month of March. In its place, cheap newsmagazine People Icons is airing and it was even down from Marvel's usual weak numbers. Of course it's just filler so it's not really a big deal. On CBS, NCIS was down seven tenths in viewers and even in the demo, tying its series low from two weeks ago. At 9pm, Bull was down three tenths in viewers and even in the demo for its fifth straight 1.3 demo. At 10pm, NCIS: New Orleans was down half a million viewers and even in the demo. Finally, it was a rough night for the CW. The Flash was down four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo to tie a series low while DC's Legends of Tomorrow was down a tenth in viewers and the demo for an outright series low.

WINNER OF THE NIGHT: This is Us (NBC)
LOSER OF THE NIGHT: Chicago Justice (NBC)
