The runaway freshman hit of the new season continued to pay it forward Tuesday night.

NBC’s 8 p.m. episode of This Is Us ranked as prime-time’s most watched show among advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds (109,041) and ranked second in total D-FW viewers (261,720) behind the usual Tuesday night champ, CBS’ 7 p.m. hour of NCIS (334,471).

The Peacock won at 7 p.m. among 18-to-49-year-olds with The Voice while CBS ran first at 9 p.m. in total viewers with NCIS: New Orleans. ABC snuck into the winners’s circle by edging NBC’s Chicago Fire in the 18-to-49 realm at 9 p.m. with David Blaine: Beyond Magic.

Over on TNT, the premiere of Good Behavior, starring Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery, had just 29,084 total viewers in the 8 p.m. hour. But more than half of them -- 16,036 -- were 18-to-49-year-olds. A 9 p.m. repeat of Good Behavior had respective totals of 21,813 and 6,414 viewers.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results for the 14th weekday of the November “sweeps,” which end on the day before Thanksgiving.

CBS11 drew the most total viewers at 10 p.m. while TEGNA8 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming). This was TEGNA8’s first outright 10 p.m. win in either measurement since the sweeps started on Thursday, Oct. 27th. On Tuesday, Nov. 1st, TEGNA8 and NBC5 tied for the 10 p.m. lead among 25-to-54-year-olds in a downsized three-way race. Fox’s Game 7 World Series overrun rubbed out Fox4’s 10 p.m. edition on that night.

Fox4 had twin wins at 6 a.m. and NBC5 enjoyed 5 and 6 p.m. wins in both ratings measurements.
