Last night saw CBS win in every category, on the back of a quite odd triple feature.
At 8pm, the network aired its annual broadcast of the Rankin-Bass Christmas classic Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, which drew the usual audience. Then we got an NCIS re-run at 9pm. The odd part comes in with the 2012 edition of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show at 10pm, which predictably had the best demos of the night. I'm not sure what executive thought programming half-naked women after a children's special and a procedural was a good idea, but bizarrely, it seems to have worked out.
On NBC, The Voice dropped four tenths, but the rest of the line-up stood firm, with Go On, The New Normal, and Parenthood all coming in right in line with last week. On ABC, a special Tuesday edition of Shark Tank dropped to a 1.7, while comedies Happy Endings and Don't Trust The B actually rose for the first time in weeks. Still, they only posted a 1.3 and a 1.2 respectively, so neither is out of the woods yet. Private Practice had a 1.2 demo as well.
FOX's comedy block continues its slow drowning, with Raising Hope, Ben & Kate, New Girl, and The Mindy Project all dropping notably from last week. I'd be surprised if anything other than New Girl survived the season. As for the CW, Hart Of Dixie and the now canceled Emily Owens both climbed a tiny amount to an 0.6 and an 0.4.
