It was a night of upticks for ABC’s Tuesday comedies, starting with “The Conners” at 8 p.m., which rose a tenth from a 1.3 to a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49, tying for the night’s win in the demo. “The Kids Are Alright” (0.9) and “Splitting Up Together” (0.7) ticked up a tenth week-to-week as well, while “The Rookie” (0.7) and “Black-ish” (0.8) matched their previous episodes.
On CBS, “NCIS” also managed to inch up from a 1.2 to a 1.3, as “FBI” continued to hold steady with another 1.0. The same could not be said for “NCIS: New Orleans” (0.8), which is currently down a tenth from its 0.9 final last Tuesday.
NBC’s “The Voice” held onto a 1.4, and tied with “The Conners” for the no. 1 spot of the night. The network’s night was rounded out by the “Darci Lynne: My Hometown Christmas” (0.8) holiday special and a new episode of “Hollywood Game Night” (0.5). Neither managed to match the network’s 2-hour “A Saturday Night Live Christmas” (1.0) special from a week ago.
A Tuesday night edition of “Supergirl” concluded the CW’s “Elseworlds” superhero crossover with a 0.7, marking a new season high for “Supergirl.”This was, however, in line with how “The Flash” has been performing in the Tuesday time slot so far this season. “Black Lightning” followed it by ticking up a tenth to a 0.4, tying its season high.
Meanwhile, FOX took the night off with “The Gifted” (0.4) and “Lethal Weapon” (0.3) repeats.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.
Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings are available at approximately 11 a.m. ET the day after telecast. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns.
Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time.
Time Shifted Viewing: Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live +Same-Day and Live +7 Day. Time-shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+SD includes viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3 a.m. local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live +7 ratings include viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
