“The Code” should’ve stayed behind “NCIS.” On Monday, in its actual time-period premiere following “Man With a Plan,” the CBS drama shed 46% of last Tuesday’s series debut viewers.

NBC won primetime last night with the Cross Battles round of “The Voice.” ABC and Fox tied for second-place among adults 18-49, though CBS split up those two networks in terms of total viewers.

“The Code” skipped last Monday for two reasons: First, that “NCIS” boost. Second, CBS aired the NCAA National Championship seven nights ago.

NBC was first in ratings with a 1.1 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 6.4 million, according to preliminary numbers. “The Voice” from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. averaged a 1.3 rating/6 and 7.6 million viewers. “The Enemy Within” at 10 received a 0.6/3 and 4 million viewers.

ABC and Fox tied for second in ratings, both with a 0.9/4. ABC was second in total viewers with 5.7 million, Fox was fourth with 5.1 million viewers.

For ABC, “American Idol” from 8-10 had a 1.2/5 and 7.1 million viewers. At 10, “The Fix” got a 0.5/2 and 3.1 million viewers.

For Fox, “The Resident” at 8 had a 0.7/3 and 4.5 million viewers. At 9, “9-1-1” got a 1.1/5 and 5.7 million viewers.

CBS was fourth in ratings with a 0.7/3 and third in viewers with 5.5 million. “The Neighborhood” at 8 had a 1.0/5 and 5.7 million viewers. At 8:30 “Man With a Plan” got a 0.8/4 and 5 million viewers. “The Code” at 9 managed a 0.6/2 and 4.4 million viewers. At 10, “Bull” received a 0.6/3 and 6.6 million viewers.
