tv ratings tuesday april 1 ncis new orleans TV ratings: 'NCIS' New Orleans spinoff conclusion tops a lackluster TuesdayFast National ratings for Tuesday, April 1, 2014

It was not a great night for ratings in general Tuesday, as every show was down from its previous new episode.

The conclusion to the “NCIS” two-part episode that introduced the New Orleans-based spinoff did well for CBS, earning the top spot of the night, though it was down half a million viewers from last week.

Elsewhere, “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” returned from a two-week hiatus down slightly, while “The Mindy Project” returned from a two-month hiatus down over a million viewers. The NBC lineup was also down slightly across the board.

CBS came out on top in total viewers, earning an average of 14.5 million viewers and a 9.2 rating/15 share in households. NBC was second with 7.6 million and a 4.9/8, followed by ABC (3.8 million, 2.4/4), FOX (2.2 million, 1.5/2) and The CW (815,000, 0.6/1).

In the adults 18-49 demographic, CBS also won with a 2.2, but NBC closed the gap here, earning a 2.0, followed by ABC (1.3), FOX (0.9) and The CW (0.3).
