Last Updated: April 1, 2015 @ 12:39 PM

CBS finished first in total viewers and tied with NBC atop the advertiser-sought 18-49 demographic on Tuesday night, but that doesn’t mean the evening was a success.

Part 1 of the TV movie “The Dovekeepers” didn’t fly, getting a mere 1.0 rating in the key demo. The Roma Downey-Mark Burnett project had 9 million total viewers.

Fox’s “Weird Loners” had an unpopular premiere itself, receiving just a 0.7 rating and 1.9 million total viewers.

CBS and NBC tied for first in ratings, both with a 1.4 rating/4 share in main demo. CBS was first in total viewers with 11.4 million, NBC was second with 5.6 million.

For CBS, “NCIS” at 8 p.m. earned a 2.1/7 and 16.3 million viewers — both highs on the night. “The Dovekeepers” followed at 9 p.m.

For NBC, “The Voice” at 8 had a 1.9/7 and 8.4 million viewers. That is down and soft for sure, but last night’s episode was simply a clip show. At 9, “Undateable” got a 1.4/4 and 5.1 million viewers. “One Big Happy” at 9:30 received a 1.2/3 and 4 million viewers. A rerun followed.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.2/4 and in viewers with 4.3 million. “Fresh Off the Boat” at 8 got a 1.3/5 and 4.8 million viewers. “Repeat After Me” at 8:30 had a 0.9/3 and 3.4 million viewers. “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD” at 9 received a 1.4/4 and 4.2 million viewers. “Forever” at 10 posted a 1.0/3 and 4.5 million viewers.

For Fox, “Hell’s Kitchen” at 8 got a 1.2/4 and 3.4 million viewers. “New Girl” at 9 had a 1.0/3 — down 23 percent from its last original — and 2.3 million viewers. “Weird Loners” followed.

For CW, “The Flash” at 8 received a 1.2/4 and 3.5 million viewers. At 9, “iZombie” posted a 0.7/2 and 1.9 million viewers.
