Apr 13 2011 12:13 pm ET
CBS took the top spot Tuesday night with both NCIS series taking the 1- and 2-spots. The Dancing with the Stars results slipped again, as did The BIggest Loser's New Zealand field trip. The late hour dramas all had a good Tuesday this week.
CBS won the night thanks to solid performances by its drama slate. NCIS was the top show of the evening, scoring a 3.8 (flat) and 19.2 million viewers. NCIS: Los Angeles was the number two show with a 3.3 rating (-0.2, two weeks). The Good Wife held steady at 2.0.
NBC managed to eke out a second place finish Tuesday night. The Biggest Loser slipped to 2.6 (-0.2) while Parenthood rose to a 2.0 (+0.1) and an audience of over 5 million.
ABC had to settle for third place. The premiere of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution scored a 1.5, which is on par with how that timeslot has performed all season. Sugar Ray Leonard's departure from Dancing with the Stars was the number three show of the night, scoring a 3.0 (-0.2) and 15.46 million viewers. Body of Proof didn't have any problems with a weakened lead-in, as it rose to a 2.5 (+0.1) for its third week out.
Univision took fourth place for the evening. The CW and Fox were in repeats, except for the latter network's Traffic Light which scored a 0.9 (+0.1).
