With “This Is Us” on hiatus, Tuesday night saw a three-way tie for first place in the broadcast TV ratings charts.
“The Voice” on NBC, “NCIS” on CBS and “The Conners” on ABC all scored a 1.1 rating among adults 18-49. That figure represents a stronger showing from “NCIS” and “The Conners,” as both shows ticked up from last week. “The Voice,” on the other hand, dropped from a 1.3 last time around.
