Tuesday’s primetime saw another season high for CBS’ NCIS (3.8/11). With its second-largest viewership ever, the police procedural pulled in 22.34 million viewers last night. That tops last week’s season-high of 21.1 million for the long-running series, though it falls short of the record 22.87 million who watched on February 1, 2011. NCIS also saw its best rating in the adults 18-49 demo since its Season 10 premiere on September 25, growing 9% from last week’s show. NCIS: LA (2.7/7), meanwhile, was down from last week’s season high; its 17.48 million viewers marked the series’ second-highest viewership of its season. It also was down 10% week-over-week in the demo. At 10 PM, Vegas (1.6/4) drew 11.05 million viewers, topping the time slot. For the night, CBS won in total viewers (16.957 million) and the demo.

NBC’s double shot of Betty White’s Off Their Rockers dipped a bit Tuesday from last week’s season debut. The 8 PM airing (1.4/4) of the senior-citizen-starring hidden camera series and the 8:30 PM  broadcast (1.8/5) were down 7% and 5%, respectively. After last week’s season low, Go On (1.7/4) was up 13% from its winter break return. The New Normal (1.3/3) was not so fortunate: The Ryan Murphy-produced series was flat with last week’s show and tied for its season low. Parenthood (1.9/5) was also even with its January 8 show but it did take the 10 PM time slot among 18-49s.

Fox’s Tuesday comedy block was back last night for its second week of new shows this year. Raising Hope (1.6/5) slipped 6% from last week. Ben And Kate (1.1/3) was also down from its January 8 show, dipping 8%. New Girl (1.9/5) was also down slightly, falling 5% from it last show a week ago. Ending the night for Fox, The Mindy Project (1.5/4) was flat with last week’s show.

ABC aired Modern Family (1.6/5) and Suburgatory (1.0/3) repeats. A new Happy Endings (1.3/3) followed, down 7% from last Tuesday’s show. Don’t Trust The B—- In Apt 23 (1.1/3) was flat with its January 8 show, the third Tuesday in a row with no movement for the comedy. In its second-to-last episode, Private Practice (1.2/3) edged up 7% from last week’s show.
