Ratings: Hope Rises, DWTS and New Girl Dip, Voice Tops Tuesday Demos

The Voice‘s first results show of the season led all of Tuesday programs in the coveted 18-49 demo, scoring a 3.2 rating.

That said, in total viewers NBC’s singing competition placed third in the 9 o’clock hour — behind Dancing With the Stars (the night’s most-watched program, at 15.4 mil) and an NCIS: LA repeat — while both its audience and demo delivery were down 22 percent from Monday’s sing-off.

* Fox’s Raising Hope (3.92 mil/1.6) inched up 3 and 7 percent, while New Girl (4.6 mil/2.3), leading out of a Hope rerun, was down 8 and 12 percent, hitting a new demo low. Breaking In (2.7 mil/1.3) dipped a tenth in the demo.

* Ringer, with just over a million viewers and a 0.4 rating, was down 9 percent and a tenth.

* The conclusion of Body of Proof‘s “viral” two-parter dominated the 10 o’clock hour with 10.7 million total viewers (up 11 percent) and a 2.0 rating (flat), opposite an Unforgettable repeat and NBC’s Fashion Star (steady at 5.1 mil/1.5)

    New Girl is not having a good 2nd have of the season rating wise…

  2. Boiler says:

    Combo of the voice(yuk) and stupid move Fox did on Glee hurting New Girl. Hopefully will bounce back when Glee is back

  3. Alejandra says:

    Body of Proof was FANTASTIC.

    • I completely agree! Hoping for a season 3 of Body of Proof! :)

      • smidnite says:

        Me too; but alas I’m not part of the desired demo.

        • geraghtyvl says:

          I love Body of Proof also, but I think it’s heading fot the chopping block. Which is a shame.

          • ChrisGa says:

            Yeah, sad to say but every industry analysis I’ve seen with regards to renewal, cancellations, etc. has Body of Proof as not even on the bubble but flat out dead after this season. A shame really, as I don’t think there’s any actress working in television who deserves to headline a series more than Dana Delany. She’s just one of those actresses that manages to elevate anything she touches.

  4. Magali says:

    Sad for New Girl. The show keeps getting better and better yet the ratings been droping fast.

  5. Davy says:

    I am going to miss Ringer when its cancelled :(

  6. bad kevin says:

    Hope ABC renews Body of Proof for a Season Three even though next week is the finale. As for CBS, my money’s on Unforgettable to get canceled soon but the network is going to have a tough time to pick up a slew of new shows that could possibly make room for their prime time schedule in the Fall when the upfronts begins in May.

    • smidnite says:

      I’d like to see BoP renewed as well.

      I wouldn’t mind seeing Unforgettable renewed over the CSI shows…

      • Sloan says:

        I agree. Let’s lay all the CSIs to rest. I think they should just do one big case and have all the CSI folk rush to one city, then bomb it. Permanently end the franchise. It’s time.

  7. Martim says:

    Breaking In will probably get canceled :( but I think it’s awesome how the ratings hang on week after week with New Girl always going down…It’s sad since last week it finally got funny but it’s hard in this business to have a chance…

  8. Anna says:

    Am I crazy or was there supposed to be a new Cougar Town last night? I was so beyond disappointed when I tuned in at 8:30 and DWTS was on my tv screen. Isn’t that DWTS demo rating about where Cougar Town is? 1.8? Seriously did someone at cougar Town kill an ABC execs puppy or something? Why do they keep getting the shaft? :(

  9. Toms1€ says:

    New Girl deserves even worse ratings. It’s not funny at all.

  10. Diane says:

    So … DWTS is still the most watched tv show, dips and all (pun intended.)

  11. mandy says:

    Comedy is always a matter of taste, and some episodes are better than others, but I think Raising Hope and New Girl are two of the funnest shows on TV. Add Modern Family, The Middle, and TBBT and you have my top 5, in no particular order. I just wish more people would watch RH and NG.

  12. Scott says:

    I was really glad when Breaking In was renewed, but it’s not the same show at all. Every scene without the horribly annoying Megan Mullally character seems emmy-worthy compared to every scene she’s in. I don’t know who thought she’d actually improve things, but they were dead wrong.

  13. aaron says:

    This is why Body of Proof should be a keeper. This story was great and although they don’t get that big of a demo number it does get an audience, over 10 million people watched it!

  14. localboy99 says:

    Totally agree, Scott!

    I loved season 1 of Breaking In but it doesn’t feel like the same show. :(

    • Martim says:

      Agree too, but if we keep watching they might might might get a season 3 (which would be awesome) and then they could have Michael Rosenbaum and Odette back full time and have time to think of a good season not like this one they just didn’t had time and the result…:S it’s not brilliant…

  15. Pati D says:

    It would suck if Ringer gets canceled. I really want to see how Bridget and Siobhan’s story ends.

  16. ABC please please please give Body of Proof a season 3 it gets wonderful ratings but low demo this season but I dont know why because last season it had amazing demos so maybe its unforgetable thats taking all the demo but I have a feeling CBS will chop it so maybe next year BOP will get it all back just hang on to it and see how it does next week. It does great with DWTS along it and The River was just a bad lead in for it when it was on. Maybe move it to Thursday before Grey’s or Sundays it could be the time slot that just dosent have good demo for it. Dana Delany really deserves to have a show and this show fits her so please listen to your fans.

  17. I dont understand how ringers ratings are so low this show is brilliant, ive said before it gives me chills therefore it must be good. I kind of dont thing the cw is the right network for it, if CBS had taken it and put it with say the good wife this would be hit.
