CBS was as usual the runaway leader among total viewers in Tuesday's ratings, and it also scored a narrow win among adults 18-49 as "NCIS" and the rest of its lineup were fairly steady with last week. "The Voice" was off from a week ago, but it still managed to score the night's best 18-49 rating.

Elsewhere Tuesday, "Agents of SHIELD" ticked up for ABC, and the network's David Blaine special scored ratings way above its fall average from 9:30 to 11 p.m. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" was up slightly for FOX, but "Supernatural" dipped a little on The CW.

CBS drew 15.45 million viewers and a 9.7 rating/15 share in households for the night, way ahead of No. 2 NBC (8.3 million, 5.3/8). ABC (6.9 million, 4.3/7) came in third. FOX was fourth with 3.1 million viewers and a 2.0/3, and The CW (1.4 million, 0.9/1) trailed.

CBS also led the 18-49 demographic with a 2.5 rating. ABC and NBC tied for second at 2.3. FOX scored a 1.4 and The CW a 0.6.
