After a week off for the mid-term elections for most shows, it was up and down for ratings across the night on Tuesday. Fox and CBS tied in the important adults 18-49 ratings on the night, while CBS lead in the press release friendly average viewership.

On Fox, vs. the last night of originals on 10/26, Glee was down 8% to a season low 4.5 adults 18-49 rating. While at 9pm Raising Hope was up a tenth to a 2.6 rating. Running Wilde was off for two weeks (and soon will be off forever), but was up 18% to a still anemic 1.3 rating vs. 10/19.

At CBS, NCIS's 3.9 adults 18-49 rating was down 5% vs. 10/26. NCIS:LA fell a tenth to a 3.3 adults 18-49 rating. The Good Wife's 2.2 rating was down 8%.

ABC's No Ordinary Family rose 10% vs. 10/26 to a 2.2 adults 18-49 rating (even with 2.2 it's on the bubble, at best). The Dancing with the Stars results show (which aired at 8pm last week), rose 6% vs. last week to a 3.4 rating. Detroit 1-8-7 slipped a tenth to a 1.8 rating (enjoy the show while you can, it's not coming back next season).

NBC's Biggest Loser held steady vs. last week at a season low 2.4 adults 18-49 rating, while Parenthood's 2.1 rating was up a tenth from 10/26 (a bit further from the cancellation bear than The Event at this point)

Compared with last week, the CW's One Tree Hill 1.6 rating for the CW target women 18-34 demo was down a tenth, and Life Unexpected's 1.2 women 18-34 rating was up a tenth (it's game over for the show, enjoy its 13 episodes this season)

In the 25 markets with Local People Meters, adult 18-49 results were: “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” 0.9/4; "Late Show," 0.8/4; "Nightline," 1.0/4; and "Jimmy Kimmel Live," 0.5/3.

NOTE: All national ratings are "live plus same day" from Nielsen Media Research unless otherwise indicated.

Fast Affiliate Ratings: These first national ratings, including demographics, are available at approximately 11 AM (ET) the day after telecast, and are released to subscribing customers daily. These data, from the National People Meter sample, are strictly time-period information, based on the normal broadcast network feed, and include all programming on the affiliated stations, sometimes including network programming, sometimes not. The figures may include stations that did not air the entire network feed, as well as local news breaks or cutaways for local coverage or other programming. Fast Affiliate ratings are not as useful for live programs and are likely to differ significantly from the final results, because the data reflect normal broadcast feed patterns. For example, with a World Series game, Fast Affiliate Ratings would include whatever aired from 8-11PM on affiliates in the Pacific Time Zone, following the live football game, but not game coverage that begins at 5PM PT. The same would be true of Presidential debates as well as live award shows and breaking news reports.

Rating: Estimated percentage of the universe of TV households (or other specified group) tuned to a program in the average minute. Ratings are expressed as a percent.

Share (of Audience): The percent of households (or persons) using television who are tuned to a specific program, station or network in a specific area at a specific time. (See also, Rating, which represents tuning or viewing as a percent of the entire population being measured.)

Time Shifted Viewing – Program ratings for national sources are produced in three streams of data – Live, Live+Same Day (Live+SD) and Live+7 Day. Time shifted figures account for incremental viewing that takes place with DVRs. Live+Same Day (Live+SD) include viewing during the same broadcast day as the original telecast, with a cut-off of 3:00AM local time when meters transmit daily viewing to Nielsen for processing. Live+7 Day ratings include incremental viewing that takes place during the 7 days following a telecast.
