The finale of ABC’s “Jeopardy! Greatest of All Time” was by far Tuesday’s highest-rated show — but didn’t give ABC enough of a boost to overtake NBC as the highest-rated network in primetime, according to Nielsen. To be fair, “GOAT” was competing with the return of “This Is Us,” which has been on winter hiatus since November.

Meanwhile, The CW came in close behind Fox and Spanish-language broadcast network Univision in the key demo rankings, airing the continuation of its “Arrowverse” crossover, “Crisis on Infinite Earths,” which included the first episode of Season 5 of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.”

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.1 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and third in total viewers with an average of 5.3 million, according to preliminary numbers. At 8 p.m., “Ellen’s Game of Games” scored a 1.0/5 and 4.2 million viewers. At 9, “This Is Us” put up a 1.4/7 and 6.6 million viewers. “New Amsterdam” at 10 put up a 0.8/4 and 5 million viewers.

ABC was second in ratings with a 1.0/5 and in viewers with 6.2 million. At 8, “Jeopardy! Greatest of All Time” earned a 1.9/9 and 13.5 million viewers. At 9, “Mixed-ish” received a 0.7/3 and 3.7 million viewers. At 9:30, “Black-ish” got a 0.5/3 and 1.7 million viewers. At 10, “Emergence” settled for a 0.3/2 and 2.1 million viewers.

CBS was third in ratings with a 0.9/4 and first in viewers with 8.3 million. At 8, “NCIS” put up a 1.0/5 and 10 million viewers. At 9, “FBI” took a 0.8/4 and 8.6 million viewers. At 10, “FBI: Most Wanted” had a 0.8/4 and 6.5 million viewers.

Univision and Fox tied for fourth in ratings, each with a 0.6/3. Fox was fourth in viewers with 3 million. Univision was fifth with 1.7 million.

For Fox, “The Resident” at 8 opened the night with a 0.7/3 and 3.9 million viewers. At 9, “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back” closed things out with a 0.6/3 and 2.1 million viewers.

The CW was sixth in ratings with a 0.5/2 and in viewers with 1.4 million. At 8, the “Arrow” half of “Crisis on Infinite Earths” put up a 0.5/3 and 1.4 million viewers. “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” continued the story with its premiere at 9, which had a 0.5/2 and 1.4 million viewers.

Telemundo was seventh ratings with a 0.3/2 and in viewers with 892,000.
