'NCIS' posts its largest audience ever for CBS
Tuesday night's episode -- the first new one since Dec. 14 -- averaged 21.9 million total viewers, the show's largest audience ever, according to the Nielsen Co.
True, that audience skews old. In viewers age 18 to 49, "NCIS" delivered a 4.5 rating/12 share -- still strong, but not as powerful as the total-viewer figure would lead one to expect.
On Tuesday's episode, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and his investigators looked into the suspicious death of a Marine on a dinner boat cruise.
