CBS’ The Amazing Race (8.8 mil/2.2) tied Once for the 8 o’clock demo win while slipping 5 percent and two tenths. The Good Wife was steady with 9 mil/1.5 and The Mentalist (9.8 mil/1.6) added a handful of viewers while dipping a tenth in the demo.
NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice (5.46 mil/1.8) ticked up 8 percent in total audience but was flat in the demo.
Of Fox’s animated fare, the 7:30 Cleveland Show (2.84 mil/1.2) fell well below the week-ago American Dad; The Simpsons (4.84 mil/2.1) dipped a tenth; the 8:30 Cleveland Show (4 mil/1.8) was flat week-to-week; Family Guy (4.9 mil/2.3) dropped 15 percent in the demo yet still led all network programming; and Bob’s Burgers (3.52 mil/1.6) was down 9 percent and two tenths.
