NBC was the number one network in adults 18-49, but CBS won with total viewers.

On NBC, The Voice earned a 4.1, down half a ratings point from last week's 4.6 adults 18-49 rating. Go On earned a 2.5, down a tenth from the 2.6 its last original earned. The New Normal earned a 1.8, down  from the 2.0 its last original earned Parenthood earned a 1.9, down a tenth from its last original's 2.0 18-49 rating.

On FOX, Raising Hope was even with last week's 1.7 among adults 18-49. Ben And Kate garnered a 1.4, up two tenths from last week's 1.2 adults 18-49 rating  New Girl was even with 2.7 its last original earned. The X Factor earned a 2.4 adults 18-49 rating. However, it should be noted that last night's X Factor aired out of pattern and was reduced to an hour, so these low ratings are not entirely unexpected.

On ABC, Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars earned a 2.2 up from last week's 2.0 adults 18-49 rating. The premiere of Happy Endings earned a 1.9, up from from its 1.7 season two finale rating but way down from last year's 3.1 adults 18-49 rating. The premiere of Don't Trust The B in Apt 23 earned a 1.7, way down from last season's 2.9 premiere rating and 2.4 finale rating. Your predictions for both of these were too optimistic Private Practice earned a 1.4, down from its last original's 1.6 18-49 rating and is tied for a series low.

On CBS, NCIS earned a 3.2, down two tenths from its last original's 3.4 and is a season low, NCIS: Los Angeles earned a 2.7, down three tenths from its last 3.0 rating and is a fall low. Vegas earned a 1.5, down half a ratings point from its last original's 2.0 rating and is a series low.

On the CW, Hart Of Dixie scored a0.5, down a tenth from last week's 0.6 adults 18-49 rating. Emily Owens M.D. earned a 0.3, down two tenths from last week's 0.5 adults 18-49 premiere rating.

You can see TV ratings from other recent Overnight ratings reports here.

Definitions:

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.

For more information see Numbers 101 and Numbers 102.

    Lol at Vegas that full season renewel was smart huh. Emily Owens did awful.

  • Alan

    I’m liking Emily Owens M.D. but i know it’s getting cancelled :(

  • taylor

    cancel the neighbors, move suburgatory back to 830 and put happy endings back at 930 on wednesday

    thx

  • Z

    Might as well witch Nikita and Emily Owens then.

  • RyanCanada

    i dont expect much for The Xfactor, as its mostly already aired one, they was posted online so…. id say 6 million

  • mula

    the voice is starting to slip. that’s another significant drop from last week

    @ TV Host: yesterday’s x factor was basically a recap but you’re right, the Voice has beaten it consistently this year regardless but i think the Voice will slip up a bit more during the live shows, whereas the x factor will go up in #s

  • Cyrax86

    ABC is a complete flop on Tuesdays now. That 2 hour comedy block is definitely not happening.

  • Steph

    @silvit lol NCIS isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

  • PHIL

    At the end of this season it will not be a happy ending for HE.

  • RyanCanada

    i agree with @Taylor, bring HE back to wednesday plus last nights episode was hilarious lol

  • Tyson

    Sure, ABC can move the comedies away from the other two comedy blocks but why do you want to move them opposite The Voice and NCIS?

  • Michael

    “The New Normal” loses the comedy, when Ellen Barkin isn’t featured in the episode. She’s comedy GOLD!

  • omabin

    @SweetD,

    Thank you! I have been arguing for that for ages.

  • rob60990

    “stupid old people, dancing is killing HE and APT23″

    The last half hour of DWTS pulled a 2.4. Try a different excuse. Happy Endings is a FLOP.

  • Dan

    Vegas will probably be cancelled in May and wont get the Unforgettable treatment. Disappointing for Happy Endings and Apartment 23 but the series have 23 and 19 episodes respectively so I expect both comedies to remain in their slots through March at least.

  • RyanCanada

    plus HE aired in canada sun or monday, because it was online monday

  • manda

    Go Parenthood! Didnt deserve to only get 15 episodes!

    Looks like everyone gave up on PP, both viewers and ABC/Shonda.

  • DenverDean

    @OMABIN CSI – is still higher than H50. That would be interesting if CSI ends up being top rated 10 p.m.

    NCIS always loses a few viewers/demo when pitted against DWTS.

  • omabin

    @Tyson,

    New Girl pulled the exact same number the night it premired both at 8 and at 9. And the voice was stronger then. So why shouldn’t happy endings do better at 8? As strong as the voice is, i still believe the cross audience with the other comedies, especially new girl is much higher. They should at least try it imo.

    Also, it would be a win-win since the old skewing 10 pm show (either PP or BoP) will be helped by DWTS, which does not help the comedies at all.

  • Oliver

    @PHIL

    At the end of this season it will not be a happy ending for HE.

    Happy Endings will be renewed, even if it ends up on cable. Never bet against Sony and Syndication.
