ncis jan 15 ratings TV ratings: 'NCIS' has another huge night TuesdayFast National ratings for Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013

“NCIS” delivered its second-biggest audience ever Tuesday night, drawing more than 22 million viewers and scoring the night’s best adults 18-49 rating as well.

CBS scored an across-the-board win for the night, but there were little bits of good news for ABC and NBC too. “Private Practice” ticked up a bit from last week for ABC, while “Go On” rebounded some after a season low last week for NBC. “Parenthood” also repeated as the 18-49 leader at 10 p.m.

CBS completely dominated the night in viewers, drawing just under 17 million people and a 10.6 rating/16 share in households. In a very distant second — some 12 million viewers behind — was NBC with 4.8 million viewers and a 3.1/5. ABC (3.7 million, 2.5/4) came in third, followed by FOX (3.1 million, 1.8/3). The CW trailed with 1.2 million viewers and a 0.8/1.

CBS also won the adults 18-49 crown, albeit by a much smaller margin. It scored a 2.7 rating in the demographic, a point better than second-place NBC’s 1.7. FOX took third with a 1.5. ABC averaged 1.2 in the demographic and The CW a 0.4.
