“This Is Us” scored more impressive ratings for NBC Tuesday night, coming within a tenth of a point of matching its season high in adults 18-49 and setting a new high in viewers. It drew a 2.7 rating in the 18-49 demo and 10.56 million viewers, the latter topping the season premiere by almost half a million people.

“The Flash” also had a ratings spike for The CW as the network’s four-part superhero crossover kicked into high gear. It scored a season-high 1.5, up 0.4 vs. last week, and topped 4 million viewers for the first time since Season 1. “No Tomorrow” ticked up to 0.4.

CBS’ annual airing of “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” scored solid ratings per usual — its 2.3 rating, second-best of the night, is on par with last year’s preliminary number (it rose to 2.4 in the finals). “The Voice” (1.9) and “Chicago Fire” (1.7) rose week to week for NBC.

ABC’s “The Middle” (1.6) and “American Housewife” (1.4) were even with last week, while “Fresh Off the Boat” (1.2) and “The Real O’Neals” (1.0) were off a tenth from their last episodes. “Agents of SHIELD” returned from a four-week break to a 0.8, even with its last episode.

At FOX, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” rose by a tenth to 1.0, while “New Girl” and “Scream Queens” were even with last week.

: 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.
