CBS won the first full Tuesday of 2013 with an overall 2.7
rating/7 share with adults 18-49, according to Nielsen overnight numbers. NCIS
returned up 6% from three weeks ago to a 3.5 and also drew a season-high 20.8
million total viewers. NCIS: Los Angeles and Vegas were both even
with their last originals with a 3.0 and 1.6, respectively. NCIS: LA
drew a season-high 17.8 million total viewers as well.

NBC's comedies struggled without the benefit of a strong

1.5 and The New Normal was down 24% to a 1.3. Parenthood also
fell a tenth to a 1.9. The premiere of Betty White's Off Their Rockers
drew a 1.5 at 8 p.m. and a 1.8 at 8:30 p.m. (the show's official premiere last
spring drew a 1.8). NBC was still able to grab second however, with an overall

Fox's comedy block returned mostly even from their last
episodes in early December. Raising Hope, New Girl and The
Mindy Project
were all flat at 1.7, 2.0 and 1.5, respectively. Ben and
returned up 9% to a 1.2. Fox finished in third place with a 1.6/4.

 episodes, earning a 0.3 rating with 18-49s, down a tenth
from last week.
