Notes: In a change from the last week or so, Tuesday night saw CBS emerge victorious in both the key 18-49 demo and in total viewers.
It was an especially bad night for NBC, with The Voice and Go On both dropping a considerable amount from last week. The New Normal also dropped even further from its mediocre numbers so far. Parenthood managed to stay dead even with last week, but last week's numbers weren't very good to begin with.
On FOX, New Girl took a huge dive from last year's series premiere numbers, but that isn't shocking when you consider that they were abnormally high. A second new episode matched the first's totals. The series premiere of Ben & Kate did okay, but it will definitely need to improve and soon. The same can be said for The Mindy Project, which opened higher than B&K, but still wasn't impressive.
Over on the "eye", NCIS' premiere dropped a negligible amount in the demos from last year, but easily won the total viewer crown as usual. NCIS: Los Angeles also dipped a small amount, but it's nothing to really worry about. Unfortunately for Vegas, its numbers skewed very old, losing a huge amount of its lead-in's 18-49 viewers. That isn't a good sign at all. On ABC, Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars dropped a noticeable amount from Monday's premiere, and went down even further when you compare it to week two of last season. The (most likely final) season premiere of Private Practice tanked, dropping almost a full ratings point from last year.
