Last night saw NBC win the demos, while CBS had more total viewers.
The Voice saw a unusually large drop from last week, although it was still the highest rated program of the night as usual. Go On and The New Normal dropped insignificant amounts, as did Parenthood. All in all, a pretty good, but not great night for the Peacock.
Raising Hope matched last week, while Ben & Kate went up a bit. New Girl also matched its last new episode. The X-Factor came in really low when compared to its usual numbers, but to be fair, it was reduced to an hour, and aired at the odd time of 9:30.
Dancing With The Stars made decent gains. Happy Endings premiered to mixed numbers, as it bested last season's finale, but debuted way, way down from what last year's premiere did. Don't Trust The B In Apt. 23 also dropped huge from last year's premiere. Private Practice tied a series low. ABC can't be happy with those numbers at all.
CBS also had a bad demo night, despite winning total viewers. NCIS hit a season demo low, while its Los Angeles variant hit a new fall demo low. Vegas also dropped big, setting a new demo low for the inconsistently rated series. The CW's fall bleeding continued, as Hart Of Dixie sunk back down near the demo gutter, and Emily Owens M.D. came in even lower than its awful premiere numbers. Last week they could use the debate as an excuse for failure, but this week saw much weaker competition.
