This Tuesday’s tallies offered few surprises, as heated competition from the baseball playoffs (Go, Yanks!) made a dent in the Big 5, and NCIS and New Girl once again repeated as audience and demo leaders, respectively.
Superlative-wise, the night’s biggest gainer was Body of Proof, which with 10.22 million viewers and a 2.1 demo rating enjoyed increases of 11 and 17 percent from a week ago. Raising Hope (6.5 mil/2.9) also drew more eyeballs, while holding steady in the demo.
The biggest loser meanwhile didn’t just air on NBC: After indicating last week that its numbers perhaps had leveled, The CW’s Ringer (1.5 mil/0.6) dropped 25 and 33 percent (!). But surely peeps will tune in next week to see what [spoiler] has to say about [spoiler] being [spoiler]!
Turning to time period-by-time period….
8 pm | NCIS was on par with last week, delivering 18.9 million total viewers and a time slot-winning 4.1 demo rating. Glee followed with 8.3 mil/3.5, dipping just a few percentage points. The Biggest Loser averaged 5.6 mil/2.0 over its two-hour run, dropping 13 percent in the demo. 90210 did Ringer no favors by leading off the night with 1.32 million viewers and a 0.6 rating, down 16 and 25 percent in its own right.
9 pm | Dancing With the Stars‘ results show (14.8 mil/2.8) pulled off a rare win in total audience, gaining 3 percent week-to-week to edge out NCIS: Los Angeles (14.65 mil/3.4), which dipped 10 percent in viewers. New Girl (8.62 mil/4.3), TBL and Ringer rounded out the time slot.
10 pm | CBS’ Unforgettable (11.35 million viewers/2.4 rating) slipped only a bit in its third week but topped the hour in both measures, besting Body of Proof. Parenthood (5 mil/2.0) was down 10 percent.
