Smash hit another low note Tuesday.

Two weeks after its feeble premiere, the musical drama drew 3.3 million viewers and a 0.9 in the adults 18-to-49 demographic, plummeting 25 percent to a series low. Lead-ins Go On (3.3 million, 1.1) and The New Normal (3.5 million, 1.0) also dropped.

TV's most heartbreaking deaths

It was mostly bad news all around, unless you were CBS, which coasted to another win led by NCIS (20.9 million, 3.5). ABC's revamped Body of Proof (6.7 million, 1.2) returned 45 percent lower and shed more than half of lead-in The Bachelor's rating (8.1 million, 2.6).

The CW's Cult (941,000, 0.3) also had an anemic premiere, well below timeslot predecessor Emily Owens, M.D.'s debut (1.7 million, 0.5).

Fox's comedy lineup was also down across the board.
