The 100th episode of “Glee” Tuesday night spurred a ratings uptick for the show, although it still finished fourth in its hour. The night’s top shows remained the same, with “NCIS” leading the viewer race and “The Voice” on top of the 18-49 demographic.

ABC’s “The Goldbergs” and “Trophy Wife” were both up a bit from last week, as were “About a Boy” and “Growing Up Fisher” on NBC. “NCIS: LA” and “Person of Interest” also rose slightly for CBS.

CBS drew just under 14 million viewers and an 8.7 rating/14 share in households for the night, finishing well ahead of second-place NBC (9.1 million, 5.8/9). The other three networks were fighting for scraps, with ABC (3.3 million, 2.1/3) beating out FOX (2.4 million, 1.6/3) and The CW (1.8 million, 1.1/2).

NBC earned a 2.5 rating among adults 18-49, topping CBS’ 2.1. ABC’s 1.1 was good enough for third. FOX scored a 1.0 and The CW a 0.7.
