Ratings: ‘This Is Us’ Return Tops Tuesday in Key Demo, but ‘Zoey’s’ and ‘Nurses’ Drag NBC Down

CBS finishes first on Tuesday with “NCIS,” “FBI” and “FBI: Most Wanted” originals

“This Is Us” returned Tuesday from an unplanned hiatus due to another coronavirus production shutdown. And while the drama finished first in demo ratings, lead-in “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist” and lead-out “Nurses” let NBC down in terms of primetime averages. CBS, which returned procedurals “NCIS,” “FBI” and “FBI: Most Wanted” from rerun-land, topped primetime outright.

CBS was first in ratings with a 0.8 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 7.5 million, according to preliminary numbers. “NCIS” at 8 p.m. posted a 0.9/6 and 9.5 million viewers. At 9, “FBI” put up a 0.8/5 and 7.6 million viewers. “FBI: Most Wanted” at 10 received a 0.6/4 and 5.5 million viewers.
