With Glee on a spring break, the Eye came away with twofold bragging rights this Tuesday, as its 1-2-3 punch of dramas won their respective time slots in not just total audience but also in the coveted 18-49 demo.
NCIS kicked off CBS’ winning night with an audience of 19.1 million total viewers and a 3.8 demo rating, on par with its previous fresh outing versus stronger competition. NCIS: LA led out of that with 16.5 million viewers and a 3.2, registering a gain in viewers and matching its previous demos.
The Good Wife then closed the night with an audience of 11.62 mil, up 3 percent from its last outing, which faced considerably stronger competition — a fresh Parenthood and 20/20‘s well-watched Charlie Sheen special, costarring TVLine. TGW‘s 2.1 demo rating, though, was down a bit.
Elsewhere this Tuesday:
* Another beneficiary of Glee playing hooky, ABC bubble show No Ordinary Family enjoyed a 23 percent surge in both viewers (5.3 million) and in the demo (still, a distant fourth-place 1.5). Too little, too late? (REMINDER: Season 1’s penultimate episode airs Saturday at 10/9c.)
* Averaging 8.2 million viewers and a 2.7, The Biggest Loser showed little week-to-week movement.
* ABC’s Best In Film thingamajig averaged 7.1 million viewers and a 1.7 rating.
