CBS survived a season-low performance by “NCIS” in the key 18-49 demo to win Tuesday night overall in a tight three-way ratings battle with NBC and ABC, TVbytheNumbers.com reported.

CBS averaged a 2.7 rating in adults 18-49 for the night, edging NBC (2.4 average) and ABC (2.3) and well ahead of Univision (1.5) and Fox (1.1). In total viewers, CBS’s average of 14.0 million was enough to beat ABC (10.8 million), NBC (6.4 million), Univision (4.1 million) and Fox (3.2 million).

At 8 p.m. "NCIS" collected a season-low 3.6 average rating in the 18-49 demographic, while NBC’s first hour of "The Biggest Loser" had a 2.4 in the same demo. ABC’s "No Ordinary Family" trailed with a 1.5 in the 18-49 demo.

At 9 p.m. ABC’s "Dancing With the Stars" results show earned a 3.1 in the 18-49 demographic, just ahead of hour two of "The Biggest Loser" with a 3.0 in the same demo.

The 10 p.m. hour was led by ABC’s "Body of Proof" with 2.4 average, followed by CBS’s "The Good Wife" with a 2.0 and NBC’s "Parenthood" with a 1.9, all in the 18-49 demo.
