ncis 200th ratings TV ratings: 'The River' starts modestly for ABC, 'NCIS' 200th scores for CBS TuesdayFast National ratings for Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2012

The 200th episode of “NCIS” delivered big numbers for CBS Tuesday night, leading the network to an across-the-board ratings win in primetime. “The River,” meanwhile, didn’t make a very big splash for ABC with its two-hour premiere.

Elsewhere, “Glee” came down some after last week’s Michael Jackson-fueled bump, and “Ringer” fell in its second week back on The CW.

CBS ran away with the total-viewer title for the night, drawing 16.2 million people and a 10.1 rating/16 share in households. That was more than double the total for second-place ABC (7.6 million, 4.7/7). FOX took third with 6.75 million viewers and a 4.1/6, topping NBC’s 5.8 million and 3.7/6. The CW (1.25 million, 0.8/1) was well off the pace.

The adults 18-49 battle was a lot closer, but CBS still came out on top, scoring a 3.1 rating to edge out FOX’s 3.0. ABC took third with a 2.4, followed by NBC, 2.0, and The CW, 0.6.
