V rose in the national finals to a 5.2 /14 adults 18-49 rating/share and 14.3 million viewers. It was the first time an ABC scripted show had beat an original airing of NCIS (4.3/11) in over five years (since 10/5/04).  The numbers increased in each half hour (5.0/14 to 5.3/14) with adults 18-49 and also with viewers (14.1 million to 14.5 million).

The Forgotten dropped to a 1.9 adults 18-49 rating in the finals and was edged out in the demo by The Jay Leno Show's 2.0 rating.  The Good Wife held it's 2.7 preliminary adults 18-49 rating in the finals.

While we wait for Travis here's an update on The Biggest Loser from NBC, it inched up from a 3.4 to a 3.5..

  • From 8-10 p.m. ET, “The Biggest Loser” averaged a 3.5 rating, 9 share in adults 18-49 and 9.1 million viewers overall.  Versus its averages for November of last year, "Loser" is up 13% in 18-49 (3.5 vs. 3.1) and 1.5 million persons or 20% in total viewers (9.113 million vs. 7.583 million).  In the time period last night, "The Biggest Loser" tied for #1 among the major networks in women 18-49, despite last night's increased competition from ABC's premiere of "V."
