CBS’ veteran NCIS continued to show those younger programs who’s boss.

NCIS delivered 22.3 million viewers — the second biggest audience in the show’s 10-season history — along with a hearty and time-period-winning 3.8 rating. The drama was also up 9 percent from last week’s hour.

Unfortunately, the NCIS performance was a lonely bright spot in last night’s numbers. Most shows were flat or down with last week. Even NCIS: La dipped 10 percent despite having a stronger lead-in this week.

The most wince-inducing number: Fox’s New Girl — 3.6 million viewers and a 1.9 rating. That’s dipping 5 percent and sinking below a 2.0 rating to a series low. »
