The broadcast networks hit a lull in the week of Feb. 13-19. No show got over a 3.0 rating among adults 18-49 on the day it aired, and only five managed even a 2.0. “The Big Bang Theory” (2.8) finished first in the demographic, with “This Is Us” second at 2.4.

“NCIS” was the viewership leader at 15.29 million, followed by “Big Bang” at 13.51 million.

The overall network numbers were down as well, with ABC’s 1.2 leading the 18-49 race and CBS’ 7.55 million viewers tops in that category.

Here are the network standings for the week of Feb. 13-19 and the season to date.
