Once againAll eyes were on the Pearsons, who took first place in Tuesday's primetime ratings. Most Wanted (9.5 mil/1.0) in turn was up 48 and 25 percent to easily hit season highs. It also was the most watched episode since that Season 4 starter.
Tuesday night's episode scored a 1.7 rating among adults 18-49, its highest mark since October 2019, and 7.9 million total viewers, matching the premiere for a season high. But the still-good Nielsen numbers put up by the tearjerker's Season 4 closer - an episode that rose from last week's "This Is Us" and matched the show's best rating since its season premiere in September - didn't stick around for the series debut of new NBC drama "Council of Dads". Earlier within the night time, "Ellen's Sport of Video games" shot as much as a season excessive 1.Four score and 6.three million viewers, beating the earlier watermark by a formidable 700,000 complete viewers.
CBS was the night's most watched network led by NCIS and its Federal Bureau of Investigation franchise crossover.
The 13.08 million viewers for CBS' NCIS is the best outing for the show since February 2019; the show tied a season high in the 18-49 demo at 1.3. At 8 p.m., "The Resident" received a 0.8/4 and 4.4 million viewers. CBS finished second with 1.1 (and held a commanding lead in total viewers).
ABC was fourth in ratings with a 0.7/3 and in viewers with 3.5 million.
ABC's The Conners (1.1 in adults 18-9, 6.4 million viewers) dipped slightly versus a week ago but was ahead of its season averages. The remainder of the Disney-owned community's lineup was even week-to-week, with "Bless This Mess" coming in at a 0.7 and 4.1 million viewers, adopted by "Blended-ish" and "Black-ish" each at a 0.6. "For Life" rounded off the night also at a 0.6.
Univision was fifth in ratings with a 0.5/3 and in viewers with 1.8 million.
Telemundo was sixth in ratings with a 0.4/2 and in viewers with 1.2 million. The network aired only reruns.
