Senior Television Writer


Fast National ratings for Tuesday, November 11, 2014.

A two-hour “The Voice” led NBC to an easy Tuesday win among young adults, boosting “Chicago Fire” and hurting “Agents of SHIELD” in the process, while CBS won the night among total viewers thanks to the “NCIS” franchise. Meanwhile, the 200th episode of “Supernatural” bought the CW drama its biggest audience since the season premiere.

For the night, NBC averaged 2.7 rating among adults 18-49, and 10.53 million viewers overall. CBS did a 1.9 demo rating and 13.77 million viewers, followed by FOX (1.5, 3.75 million), ABC (1.1, 3.85 million) and the CW (1.1, 2.8 million).

8 p.m. — “The Voice” (2.9, 11.14 million) won the hour in the demo, while “NCIS” (2.3, 17.41 million) was the hour's most-watched show. “Masterchef Junior” (1.8, 4.81 million) held steady from last week's premiere in the demo, though it was down a few hundred thousand viewers. The CW was in fourth place with “The Flash” (1.4, 3.4 million), followed by ABC's dead show walking “Selfie” (0.9, 2.37 million) and a “Modern Family” repeat (0.9, 2.89 million).

9 p.m. — Same basic split as the 8 o'clock hour: “The Voice” (3.0, 11.34 million) tops in the demo, and “NCIS: New Orleans” (2.0, 14.88 million) the most-watched. With tougher competition from NBC, “Marvel's Agents of SHIELD” (1.5, 4.27 million) was down over its most recent episode, but still finished ahead of FOX's “New Girl”/”The Mindy Project” bloc (1.2, 2.7 million), and the 200th episode of “Supernatural” was up on the CW (0.9, 2.19 million).

10 p.m. — With “The Voice” as a lead-in rather than “About a Boy,” “Chicago Fire” easily won the hour in the demo (2.2, 9.09 million), and nudged ahead of CBS' “Person of Interest” (1.3, 9.03 million) among total viewers. ABC's “Forever,” which just got a full-season order, was in third (1.0, 4.21 million).
