‘This Is Us’ Family Meeting Episode Secures Tuesday’s Primetime Ratings

·4-min read

While NBC’s “This Is Us” secured the highest ratings for Tuesday primetime, CBS was back with new episodes of “FBI” this week and the procedural drama franchise led the network to be the top-rated and most-watched Tuesday.

During primetime, CBS averaged a 0.52 rating in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 6.1 million total viewers.

The original “FBI” secured the highest rating of the three, with a .59 demo rating and 7.2 million total viewers at 8 p.m. It was also the one that had the most eyeballs.

But as we mentioned previously, “FBI” wasn’t the highest-rated individual show of the night. “This Is Us” took that title in the 9 p.m. hour with its “family meeting” episode. As the series nears its end, the third-to-last episode drew a 0.81 demo rating and 4.8 million total viewers on Tuesday.

Over on The CW, audiences were graced with back-to-back episodes of “Naomi,” instead of the usual “Superman & Lois” that airs in the first hour of primetime. The episodes averaged a 0.06 demo rating and an average of 432,000 total viewers.
