CBS’ “FBI” viewers finally got to see the Season 4 finale that was pulled at the last minute earlier this year after a school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Instead, it aired Tuesday night as Season 5’s third episode, and it seems audiences’ interests were piqued.
The episode involves the son of Jeremy Sisto’s character, Jubal, and his reluctance to provide information about a classmate with ties to a massive gun heist. It fared quite well and was by far the most-watched program of the night with a 0.6 rating among the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and 7 million total viewers at 8 p.m.
However, “FBI” was slightly edged out of the top demo ratings spot by NBC’s “The Voice,” which managed a 0.7 as viewers tuned in to see the coaches battle it out to finalize their teams during the last of the blind auditions.
Here’s how the rest of primetime broke down across the major broadcasters Tuesday:
