[via press release from NBC]

Tuesday Results:

NBC took the night among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in 18-49, winning six of six half-hours with the #1, 2 and 3 shows of the night on the Big 4, as:

· "Chicago Fire" (2.3/7 at 10:01) grew by 10% week to week to its top rating since Oct. 15.

· "The Voice" (3.3/9 at 9) jumped 10% week to week to its highest rating since Nov. 12.

· "The Biggest Loser" (2.0/6 at 8) maintained last week's rating, its highest since Nov. 5.

· "The Biggest Loser" (2.0/6 in 18-49, 6.7 viewers overall from 8-9 p.m.) matched last week's 18-49 rating, the show's highest since Nov. 5, and grew 2% in total viewers (6.719 million vs. 6.614 million) to deliver the show's biggest overall audience since that same Nov. 5 telecast. Last night's "Biggest Loser" grew or held steady from half-hour to half-hour in every key measure, including a gain of 16% in adults 18-49 (to a 2.2 rating from a 1.9).

· "The Biggest Loser" won its time period among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-49, adults 18-34, adults 25-54 and all key adult-female demos.

· "The Voice" (3.3/9 in 18-49, 11.9 million viewers overall from 9-10:01 p.m. ET) is the #1 show of the night on the Big 4 networks in adults 18-49 and other key measures and is #1 among those nets in the time period in every key category. Half-hour to half-hour, "The Voice" grew in every key measure.

· Week to week, "The Voice" is up 10% in 18-49 rating (to a 3.3 from a 3.0), to its highest Tuesday result since Nov. 12, and up 15% in total viewers (11.890 million vs. 10.345 million), to its top Tuesday total-viewer result since Oct. 22.

· "Chicago Fire" (2.3/7 in 18-49, 8.2 million viewers overall from 10:01-11 p.m. ET) earned its highest 18-49 rating since Oct. 15 and biggest overall audience since Oct. 1. In the time slot, "Chicago Fire" is #1 among ABC, CBS and NBC in adults 18-49 and every other key demographic.

· "Chicago Fire" generated week-to-week gains in 18-49 for a second week in a row, up versus one week ago by 10% (with a 2.3 rating vs. a 2.1) and up versus two weeks ago by 21% (2.3 vs. 1.9). In total viewers, "Chicago Fire" is up week to week by 19% or 1.3 million persons (8.245 million vs. 6.909 million)..

· For the night, NBC is #1 among the Big 4 in every key demo (including a tie for #1 with Fox in men 18-34). NBC dominated those networks in adults 18-49 with a nightlong margin of 86% (2.6 vs. a 1.4 for #2 CBS).

On the Other Networks Tuesday Night:

· CBS (2.5/7) won the night thanks to the first pre-Thanksgiving flight of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" (3.0/9 at 8 p.m.), up 3% from the comparable year-ago 2.9 on Dec. 4, 2012 and last night's #1 show of the night. CBS didn't otherwise win any time periods last night, but was competitive with "NCIS: LA" (a second-place 2.4/6 at 9) and "Person of Interest" (2.1/6, tied with "Chicago Fire" for #2 at 10:01).

· ABC (2.4/7) is currently edging NBC for #2 thanks to the Tuesday finale of "Dancing With the Stars" (a second-place 2.4/7 from 9-11:01 p.m.), though it's a record low for a "Dancing" finale, down 20% from the year-ago 3.0 on Nov. 27, 2012 and down 11% from the 2.7 for the finale of the spring cycle on May 21. At 8, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." (a second-place 2.5/7) generated a second-straight week-to-week gain, in this case probably owing in part to CBS's switch from competition from "NCIS" to "Rudolph." The "S.H.I.E.L.D." track since its Sept. 24 debut is: 4.7, 3.3, 2.9, 2.8, 2.7, 2.5, 2.2, 2.4, 2.5).

· Fox's comedy lineup (1.5/4) ranked #4 for the night, up a tenth versus its 1.4 for the prior two Tuesdays.

· At 8:30, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (1.5/4 in 18-49, 3.7 million viewers overall) matched last week's 18-49 rating and grew 11% in total viewers (3.713 million vs. 3.360 million) to a three-week high (best since Nov. 5, 3.835 million). Last night's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" built on its 18-49 lead-in by 25% (1.5 vs. a 1.2 at 8 for "Dads"), the best build on lead-in so far this season for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." In adults 18-34, last night's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" built on its lead-in by 56% (1.5 vs. 0.9).

· At 9:30, "The Mindy Project" (1.4/4 in 18-49, 2.6 million viewers overall) jumped week to week by 17% in 18-49 rating (to a 1.4 from a 1.2) and 10% in total viewers (2.647 million vs. 2.403 million). Last night's "Mindy" retained 74% of its lead-in from "The New Girl" in adults 18-49, up from last week's 71%. In the highly competitive half-hour. "Mindy" ranked #2 among ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox in adults 18-34 and women 18-34.

· The CW continues to do well with its rookie "The Originals" (a fifth-place 1.1/3), which wasn't bothered by last week's preemption and came back to match its series high and out-perform veteran schedule mate "Supernatural" (a fifth-place 1.0/3 at 9).

In Late-Night Metered Markets Tuesday night:

· In Nielsen's 56 metered markets, household results were: "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," 2.5/7 with an encore telecast; CBS's "Late Show with David Letterman," 2.2/6 with an encore; and ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 2.0/6.

· From 12:35-1:35 a.m. ET, "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" (1.3/5 in metered-market households with an encore) beat CBS's first-run "Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" (1.2/4). In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, "Late Night" (0.5/3 in 18-49 with an encore) topped "Late Late Show" (0.2/2).

· At 1:35 a.m., "Last Call with Carson Daly" averaged a 0.8/4 in metered-market households with an encore and a 0.3/3 in adults 18-49 in the 25 markets with local people meters.
