"The Voice" fell to its lowest adults 18-49 rating of the season Tuesday night, but it still held onto its spot atop the demographic rankings. "NCIS" was, per usual, the night's most-watched show, and "NCIS: Los Angeles" was about even with its numbers from a week ago. "Person of Interest," however, took a hit against an expanded "Voice."

Elsewhere Tuesday, "The Goldbergs" held steady and "Trophy Wife" was up a little for ABC despite not having an original "Agents of SHIELD" as a lead-in. "The Originals" and "Supernatural" were steady for The CW. "The X Factor," which was airing outside of its normal schedule, dropped.

CBS was a runaway winner in total viewers Tuesday night, averaging 15.2 million and a 9.6 rating/15 share in households. NBC (9.6 million, 6.0/9) came in second, well ahead of third-place FOX (4.8 million, 3.1/5). ABC took fourth with 4.1 million viewers and a 2.6/4, and The CW (2.1 million, 1.4/2) trailed.

NBC led the 18-49 demo with a 3.0 rating, half a point better than CBS' 2.5. FOX came in third with a 1.5, followed by ABC, 1.2, and The CW, 1.0.
