originals dec 3 13 ratings TV ratings: 'The Voice' and NBC lead Tuesday, 'Originals' hits a series highFast National ratings for Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013

A smattering of reruns on the broadcast networks Tuesday night was good news for some of shows airing original episodes. “The Voice” and “Chicago Fire” both improved on their ratings for last week for NBC, and The CW had its most-watched Tuesday in more than five years.

“The Originals” scored a series high in viewers, and “Supernatural” had its biggest audience since its season premiere. “Supernatural” also led FOX’s “New Girl” rerun and a new “Mindy Project” in viewers and tied among adults 18-49. “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” however, was up a little for FOX. “The Goldbergs” dipped without an original “Agents of SHIELD” as a lead-in. And despite being a repeat, “NCIS” still had the night’s biggest total audience.

CBS’ all-rerun lineup led the night in viewers with 10.1 million, along with a 6.6 rating/11 share in households. NBC (8.95 million, 5.6/9) came in second. There was a big dropoff from there to third-place ABC (3.6 million, 2.4/4). FOX (2.85 million, 1.8/3) beat out The CW (2.45 million, 1.5/2) for fourth.

NBC led the 18-49 demographic with a 2.6 rating, more than a point better than CBS’ 1.4. FOX took third with a 1.3, and ABC and The CW tied for fourth at 1.1.
