CBS topped a slow Tuesday with a pair of procedural reruns and a “CSI” special, which earned its best numbers of the season last night at 10 p.m.  That said, the episode was down a touch from the most-recent “Person of Interest,” the show that regularly populates that timeslot.

The self-proclaimed (but accurate) “America’s Most-Watched Network” was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/5 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and first in viewers with an average of 11.6 million, according to preliminary numbers. Following reruns, “CSI” received a night-high 1.6/5 (tying with “NCIS” and “NCIS: New Orleans” repeats, as well as a Fox original) and had 10.3 million viewers. The “NCIS” rerun at 8 p.m. had the most viewers of the night, with 12.8 million viewers.

Fox was second in ratings with a 1.2/4 and third in viewers with 3.5 million. At 8, “MasterChef Junior” received a 1.6/5 — tying the aforementioned primetime high — and had 5 million viewers. Reruns followed.

ABC was third in ratings with a 1.1/3 and second in viewers with 4.4 million. Sandwiched in-between repeats, “Marvel’s Agent Carter” dipped to a 1.3/4 and 4.6 million viewers.

NBC and CW tied for fourth in ratings, both with a 1.0/3. NBC was fourth in viewers with 3.099 million, CW was fifth with 3.061 million.

For NBC, “Parks and Recreation” at 8 had a 1.4/4 and 3.5 million viewers. A second episode at 8:30 got a 1.3/4 and 2.9 million viewers. “Marry Me” at 9 received a 0.7/2 and 2.3 million viewers. “About a Boy” at 9:30 dipped to a 0.8/2 — tying a low — and 2.8 million viewers.

For CW, “The Flash” at 8 received a 1.3/4 and 4 million viewers. “Supernatural” at 9 had a 0.8/2 and 2.1 million viewers.

Univision was sixth in ratings with a 0.9/3 and in total viewers with 2.3 million.
