Over on CBS, Big Bang Theory brought in 15.6 million and 4.6, up slightly from last week, while Scorpion (11.5 million, 2.4) went down a tick. NCIS: LA closed out the night with 9.1 million, 1.6, tying last week.

NBC saw little gains for The Voice and The Blacklist. Kicking off the night, The Voice drew 13 million and 3.9, followed by The Blacklist with 9.8 million and 2.8.
