CBS gave NCIS fans a first look at its Louisiana-based-based spin-off Tuesday night. The Nielsen ratings show a small rise — up 4 percent — for part 1 of the implanted spin-off, which stars Scott Bakula leading a new crew of crime solvers. That’s good news for CBS. (It’s always disheartening when ratings go down when previewing a backdoor pilot.) The network will almost certainly look at fan reaction and next week’s numbers before deciding whether to move forward with a full series order .(Let us know what you thought and see the results of our poll.)

Also Tuesday:

— NBC’s The Voice topped the night despite dipping 8 percent to a season low. There was some slippage from NBC’s new comedies, too: About a Boy fell 5 percent and Growing Up Fisher dipped 6 percent.

— Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine ended its first-season run growing 18 percent from last week. (Here’s our take on the first season’s highs and lows.)

— ABC had mostly repeats (and hasn’t pulled Mind Games from the schedule … yet).

— Fox’s Glee was even, while New Girl was down — what’s happened to this show? A couple seasons ago, New Girl was one of TV’s better-rated comedies.

— This is interesting: A repeat of The CW’s The 100 pilot delivered a 67 percent higher 18-49 rating than the network’s original Monday block of Star-Crossed and The Tomorrow People.
