Notes: In a repeat of last Tuesday, CBS won both the key 18-49 demo and total viewer races.
NCIS dropped 12%, and NCIS: LA dropped 9%, but both easily crushed the competition in both demos and total viewers. Vegas dropped even further from its premiere episode's already mediocre demos, but still did well in total viewership. Raising Hope's season premiere dropped a staggering 45% in the demos from last fall's debut. The bad news continued for FOX, with Ben & Kate dropping 24%, and The Mindy Project dropping 21%. The ever reliable ratings winner New Girl did manage to come in even with last week though.
The Voice dropped 31% from last week, but to be fair, it was a "best-of" clip show. Go On and the New Normal both dropped, but NBC seems happy with the numbers so far, judging by the fact that both just got their "back nine" picked up. Parenthood dropped yet again, and I'll be very surprised if the show lives to see another season.
Over on the alphabet network, Dancing With The Stars came in dead even with last week, while Private Practice dropped its already low premiere numbers. The CW's first scripted premiere of the fall, Hart Of Dixie, improved slightly when compared to last season's finale, but dropped slightly when compared to the series premiere last fall. In other words, its a wash, and fans shouldn't worry.
