CBS won Tuesday thanks to a dominant NCIS/NCIS: New Orleans crossover which delivered season highs in key demos and total viewers for both series. How did its competition fare in comparison? Let’s find out:

FOX – The network has transformed its Tuesday night lineup. New Girl returned for a new season last night, and Brooklyn Nine Nine has moved from Sunday to Tuesday. Grandfathered /The Grinder now hold new Tuesday timeslots.
