Ratings: Cougar Town Dips Slightly, Glee Finale Up, Ringer Rebounds

ABC’s Cougar Town, in its second week back, drew 4.5 million total viewers while scoring a 1.7 demo rating. That marks dips of 8 and 6 percent from its Season 3 opener.

Elsewhere, it was business as usual, with NCIS topping the night in both total viewers (holding steady at 19.6 million) and in the demo (down a tenth to a 3.8).

Over on Fox, Glee‘s winter finale (7.4 million viewers/2.9 rating) inched up a few percentage points, New Girl (6.25 mil/3.0) was relatively flat, and Raising Hope (4.85 mil/2.2) saw a tiny uptick.
