The new programming across Tuesday night — Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, This Is Us, and The Resident and Prodigal Son premieres (compared with previous season’s averages) — were all down. (CBS aired reruns of its procedurals.) But despite the drop, This Is Us still topped the night both in the key demo (0.9 rating among adults 18-49) and viewers (5.3 million).

Also slipping: ABC’s Wonderful World of Disney airing of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which followed January 5’s The Lion King.
