TV ratings: 'New Girl' rises, 'The Taste' tumbles and CBS dominates another TuesdayAdd to Favorites | NCIS: Los Angeles
CBS once again ran away from the field in Tuesday's ratings race, as the "NCIS" duo and "Vegas" swept all three hours in viewers and adults 18-49.
Elsewhere, "New Girl" scored its best 18-49 rating in some time for FOX. "Go On" and "The New Normal" dipped some more for NBC, and "The Taste" took a hit for ABC in its second week. ABC's prime-time rebroadcast of "Jimmy Kimmel Live's" Matt Damon episode drew modest numbers.
CBS averaged 16.7 million viewers and a 10.4 rating/16 share in households in primetime, beating the combined total of the other four networks. NBC (4.6 million, 3.1/5) was the best of the rest. FOX (3.75 million, 2.2/3) came in third, beating out ABC (3.6 million, 2.4/4). The CW drew 1.3 million viewers and a 0.9/1.
CBS also led the adults 18-49 demographic (albeit by not as big a margin) with a 2.9 rating. FOX took second with a 1.8, and ABC and NBC tied for third at 1.3. The CW scored a 0.5.
