Americans didn’t tune in to root on Lindsey Vonn in nearly the same numbers they showed up for Shaun White last week — but NBC still easily iced out any broadcast competition on Tuesday, including “Bachelor Winter Games.”

NBC was first in ratings with a 3.9 rating/15 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 16.8 million, according to preliminary numbers. It was all Pyeongchang Olympics competition in primetime.

ABC was second in ratings with a 0.7/3 and third in viewers with 2.7 million. The two-hour “Bachelor Winter Games” at 8 p.m. had a 0.9/3 and 3.2 million viewers. At 10, “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” settled for a 0.4/2 and 1.5 million viewers.

CBS and Fox tied for third in ratings, both with a 0.6/2. CBS was second in total viewers with 5.9 million, Fox was fourth with 2.1 million. Both aired all repeats.

Univision and Telemundo tied for fifth in ratings, both with a 0.5/2. Univision was fifth in total viewers with 1.5 million, Telemundo was sixth with 1.3 million.

The CW was seventh in ratings with a 0.2/1 and in viewers with 929,000, running reruns.
