CBS, as almost always, swept Tuesday’s ratings this week, with NCIS besting all comers in both total viewers and in the coveted 18-49 demo. Fox, meanwhile, started the evening out on the down side, but saw its fortunes rise as its line-up unspooled.
Let’s take a look, hour-by-hour:
8 pm | With just under 20 million total viewers and a 4.0 demo rating, NCIS was down just a half of a half of a hair from last week. ABC’s sitcombo of Last Man Standing (9 mil/2.6) and Man Up (6.3 mil/1.7) was flat, while Glee (7.1 mil/2.9) drew a few extra eyeballs but dipped 6 percent in the demo to a season low.
The Biggest Loser, averaging 6.2 mil and a 2.0, shed 16 percent of its demo numbers. 90210 (1.64 mil/0.7) was up 6 percent in viewers to hit a season high, but down 12 percent in the demo.
9 pm | NCIS: LA (15.02 mil/3.3) eked out a win in total viewers over the Dancing With the Stars results show (14.96 mil/2.8), as both shows held steady week-to-week. Fox’s New Girl was flat at 6.9 mil/3.5, while the Six Million Dollar Man helped lift Raising Hope a few percentage points, to 6.9 million total viewers and a 2.2 rating. Ringer (1.85 mil/0.7) saw an uptick in audience (drawing its biggest crowd since Sept. 27) while holding steady in the demo.
10 pm | CBS’ Unforgettable, guest-starring series consultant Marilu Henner, drew 11.2 million viewers while scoring a 2.4 rating, on par with its previous outing. Body of Proof (9.84 mil/2.1) saw an 11-percent spike in the demo, while Parenthood (5 mil/1.9) dipped a bit to a season low.
