Ratings: 'NCIS,' 'NCIS: Los Angeles' stay strong Tuesday

Posted on

CBS ruled on Tuesday night with the season’s second episodes of NCIS (which retained its entire premiere audience), spinoff NCIS: Los Angeles (which dropped only a million viewers), and new drama The Good Wife (which lost only 300,000). For ABC, the Dancing With the Stars results show dropped 3 million viewers from last week’s Wednesday-night elimination episode, which could have contributed to The Forgotten‘s dip as well: The 10 p.m. Christian Slater procedural lost 2 million viewers from its debut last Tuesday. Meanwhile, Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance continued to perform below its usual summer standard against competition from Dancing and NCIS at 9 p.m.

Here’s a breakdown of Tuesday’s numbers. Check out our recaps of six shows, below the table.
