We know that Fox is well behind last season's ratings, and ABC losses are almost as bad. CBS just slipped behind last year's averages, while NBC and the CW are just slightly ahead.

But what about the ratings trends for individual shows?

Glee leads all shows in both adults 18-49 ratings points gained (2.0), and percentage increase (53%) followed by Dancing with the Stars, Modern Family and Castle.

On the loser side of the equation, CSI:NY, Lie To Me and House trail the pack.

Of course, lots of these shows have changed timeslots which can have a major impact on their ratings. Last year's similar post didn't include timeslot changers or unscripted shows, but I decided to pile everybody into this year's list. Enjoy!

Why didn't I include the actual ratings themselves? Sadly, Nielsen frowns on lists longer than 25 items with their ratings in them. Percentages and absolute changes, not so much!
