That was true nationally and locally.
"NCIS" averaged 20.8 million viewers, its biggest audience this season, according to updated ratings. The premiere of Holloway's "Intelligence" followed with 16.5 million viewers, the most-watched start for a new series this season. Holloway plays an operative with incredible powers, thanks to a supercomputer microchip in his brain. CBS has dubbed the show "The Six Billion Dollar Man." A third CBS series, "Person of Interest," drew 12.1 million.
CBS won the night in total viewers and the 18-to-49 age group. The prime-time averages in total viewers: CBS with 16.5 million, NBC with 5.9 million, ABC with 5.1 million, Fox with 3.2 million and The CW with 900,000 for reruns.
Rounding out the top five were two ABC series: "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" with 128,200 viewers and "The Goldbergs" with 104,900.
But those ABC series were tops with the 18-to-49 age group locally. Rounding out that top five, in order, were the three CBS series: "NCIS," "Intelligence" and "Person of Interest."
Other programs of note: ABC's "Killer Women" ranked No. 10 with 60,100 viewers. It was right ahead of the season premiere of FX's "Justified" with 57,900. "Justified" was the biggest show in cable for the night in Central Florida.
Back to national ratings: NBC's best was "Chicago Fire" with 6.9 million viewers, followed by "The Biggest Loser" with 5.5 million. ABC's best was "Agents of SHIELD" with 6.6 million, followed by "The Goldbergs" with 5.3 million. "Killer Women" debuted to 4 million. Fox's best was "Dads" with 3.6 million.
