Ratings: Private Practice, Glee Rebound, Cougar Town Inches Up, L.A. Complex DOA

It appears Private Practice fans finally got the memo about the show’s new timeslot.

In its second Tuesday outing, the Grey’s spinoff drew 8.3 million viewers and a 2.2 demo rating — a 29 percent jump over last week. Even more impressive, it stands as PPP‘s most-watched telecast in 18 months.

With CBS in encore mode, several shows saw bumps.

Glee‘s Whitney Houston tribute attracted 6.9 million sets up eyeballs and a 2.7 in the demo, up from last week’s all-time low of 6.2 mil/2.4. Strangely, lead-out New Girl actually slipped a tenth in the demo (to 2.6) while remaining steady in total viewers (5.2 mil).

Elsewhere on the night…

* Cougar Town posted week-to-week increases of 11 percent in viewers (5 mil) and 7 percent in the demo (1.5).

* The CW’s new soap L.A. Complex opened (and closed?) with an anemic 600K viewers and a 0.3 rating.
