Ratings: NBC Wins Demo for 20th Straight Night

But CBS is still on top with viewers

NBC finished first in ratings in the key demo again on Tuesday, marking the 20th night in a row.

Of course, much of that streak can be credited to the network's Sochi Olympics coverage, which ended on Sunday. The run is not expected to continue tonight.

NBC finished second in viewers behind CBS last night.
