NCIS: LA and the highly entertaining second half of its crossover with Hawaii Five-0 on Tuesday night said aloha to a 25 percent bump in the demo, making it the night’s only program to register a ratings increase. Drawing 15 million total viewers while netting a 3.0 rating, the CBS drama was also up 17 percent in audience.
Every single other show was , best case, flat in the demo or, more commonly, down to series or season lows. Scary.
Seriously. Going hour by hour….
8 pm | NCIS was the night’s most watched program, of course, with 17.25 million total viewers (down 5 percent), while holding steady at a 3.0 demo rating (bested only by The Voice). The Biggest Loser finale (7.1 mil/2.1) added a few viewers but dipped a tenth in the demo for its lowest rated closer ever. Last Man Standing (6.5 mil/1.4) and Cougar Town (5 mil/1.3) each dropped 12 percent in the demo to hit new lows. Glee (6 mil/2/4) was down 14 and 11 percent, returning to a series-low demo. 90210 (1.2 mil/0.6) gained some eyeballs but was flat in the demo.
9 pm | The Voice‘s penultimate results show (8.9 mil/3.1) led the night in the demo yet dipped 9 percent. Trailing NCIS: LA, Dancing With the Stars (13.4 mil/2.3) slipped a few percentage points week-to-week to tie a series low. New Girl dropped 15 and 19 percent to 4.4 mil and a 2.1. The CW’s L.A. Complex dropped to 574,000 viewers but held steady at its (faintest of praise alert!) 0.3 demo rating.
10 pm | Unforgettable (10.6 mil/1.8) led in total viewers, up 12 percent, and was steady at series-low demo, while Private Practice (down 5 percent to 7.6 mil/2.1) scored the demo win. Fashion Star (4.2 mil/1.5) shed 8 percent in audience and was at a series low demo.
What were you watching on Tuesday… if anything?!
