ABC’s “Killer Women” was not resuscitated last night, as the series’ second episode dropped, tying the lowest original Tuesday telecast of the season across the so-called “Big 4” networks.

“Killer Women” earned a 0.7 — a 22 percent drop from last week’s 0.9-rated premiere, which was the second lowest-rated premiere of the fall, only behind the same network’s “Assets,” which was the lowest-rated scripted debut in Big 4 network history. “Assets” was subsequently canceled.

CBS was tops in both the key demo ratings and in viewers on Tuesday night. The network was first in ratings with a 2.5 rating/7 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and first in total viewers with an average of 15.9 million, according to preliminary numbers. At 8 p.m., “NCIS” earned a 3.0/9 and 19.5 million viewers — making it the highest-rated and most-watched show of the night. “NCIS: Los Angeles” at 9 received a 2.4/6 and 15.9 million viewers. “Person of Interest” at 10 got a 2.0/6 and 12.3 million viewers.
