Paced by the midseason resumption of This Is Us, NBC rolled with advertiser-prized 18-to-49-year-olds Tuesday night while also scoring well in the total viewers Nielsens.

Us led all programming with 162,271 viewers in the key 18-to-49 demographic while the Peacock’s Ellen’s Game of Games and Chicago Med also won their time slots with respective counts of 106,100 and 68,653 viewers.

CBS’ NCIS as usual topped all prime-time attractions in total viewers with 363,227 in the 7 p.m. hour. This Is Us won at 8 p.m. with 299,128 viewers before CBS’ NCIS: New Orleans and Chicago Med tied for first at 9 p.m. with 220,785 viewers each.

Save for black-ish, ABC’s lineup ran last all night among the Big Four broadcast networks in both ratings measurements. Its biggest scorer, a 7 p.m. episode of The Middle, had 142,442 total viewers and 46,809 in the 18-to-49 realm. black-ish ran third at 8 p.m. with 18-to-49-year-olds, outpointing the first half hour of CBS’ Bull.

Episode 2 of Fox’s LA to Vegas ran third at 8 p.m. in total viewers and second among 18-to-49ers. It drew more viewers in both barometers than any show on ABC and did better among 18-to-49-year-olds than any show on CBS. So Fox has to be pretty pleased after the airborne comedy got mostly negative reviews.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

TEGNA8 swept the 10 p.m. competitions in total viewers and 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 continued its long run of prosperity at 6 a.m. with twin wins and also ran first at 5 and 6 p.m. with 25-to-54-year-olds.

NBC5 won in total viewers at 5 p.m. and TEGNA8 was tops in that measurement at 6 p.m.
