While many network shows are competing for fewer and fewer viewers, some shows still managed to do the sort of ratings most cable and network programming can only dream of. A prime example of this is NCIS, a show that has been airing on CBS since 2003, and just last night managed to pull in its second highest audience, ever.

Yes, you read that correctly. In Season 10, NCIS is still crushing in the ratings, and Tuesday’s episode earned a healthy 3.8 rating in the 18-49 demographic, as well as 22.3 million total viewers. Interestingly, if you were to combine the numbers for all the other shows airing during the timeslot on NBC, ABC, and Fox, the other network’s shows, including a repeat of Modern Family, two episodes of Off Their Rockers, and Raising Hope, among others would just beat the numbersNCIS pulled in. And that’s how you crush with the might of Thor’s hammer.

EW has a full list of last night’s numbers available, if you want to do the math, or just take a look at Tuesday’s ratings. As the outlet notes, New Girl, while not offering the most dismal ratings last night (that honor goes to the already-cancelled CW program, Emily Owens, M.D.), New Girl dropped yet again, reaching an under 2.0 rating, and hitting a series low. Maybe it was just a fluke and people were simply out and enjoying the winter weather last night. Either way, we will keep you posted.
