Notes: For the second straight week, CBS won both the 18-49 demo and total viewer races.
The Big Bang Theory dropped a tiny amount, but still crushed everyone else in both the demos and total viewers. Lead out Two and a Half Men rose a decent amount from last week. Person Of Interest also experienced a decent rise. Elementary dropped 16% from last week's series premiere, but most shows do dip after the first episode.
Last Resort dropped 18% from its already really bad week one numbers. Pity, as it's received almost completely positive reviews. Grey's Anatomy dropped 16%, while Scandal came in even with last week. Over on FOX, The X-Factor came in just below last week's totals, while Glee rose a small amount.
The final season premiere of 30 Rock sank like a stone, coming in 28% lower than last fall's debut, and even below the numbers Community pulled down in the same slot last year. Up All Night and The Office were even with last week, although last week's numbers weren't good for either. On the oither hand, Parks & Recreation went up a solid 19%. Most likely generated by political debate fever, Rock Center saw its demos rise by an impressive 38% from last week's show.
