The biggest new hit of the fall season continued to assert itself Tuesday night.

Moving up to 8 p.m., the third episode of NBC’s This Is Us greatly improved upon its lead-in from The Voice to dominate the hour in both both key ratings measurements. It drew 349,013 D-FW viewers and 115,456 in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-old demographic.

CBS’ 7 p.m. episode of NCIS as usual led all programming in total viewers with 428,995 before the network’s new Bull fell to a second place finish with 290,844. The Voice topped the 7 p.m. hour in 18-49-year-olds (70,556).

ABC’s 7:30 p.m. premiere of American Housewife ran third in that half-hour slot in total viewers (152,693), but moved up to second place with 18-to-49-year-olds by inching past the concluding half-hour of NCIS.

The 9 p.m. hour went to CBS’ NCIS: New Orleans in both total viewers (283,573) and 18-to-49-year-olds (57,728), with NBC’s competing Chicago Fire just a sliver behind in the latter measurement.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby numbers.

Again capitalizing on an advantageous CBS lead-in program, CBS11 won for the third straight weekday at 10 p.m. in total viewers. NBC5 ran first with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 swept the 6 a.m. competitions. At 6 p.m., NBC5 and TEGNA8 tied for the most total viewers, with the Peacock winning outright among 25-to-54-year-olds.

Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the top spot in total viewers at 5 p.m., but NBC5 again was alone in first with 25-to-54-year-olds.
