Primetime Ratings, Tuesday, 1/29/13

New Girl

Unlike last week's tie, CBS soundly trounced everyone else in both demos and totals. NCIS dropped two tenths, but still did great. NCIS: LA more than made up for the drop, rising four tenths. Vegas also rose a healthy three tenths. All in all, a great night for the "Eye".

Conversely, ABC had a dreadful outing. First up, The Taste dropped half a ratings point from last week's premiere. Ouch. The cancellation of Apt. 23 in favor of two Happy Endings episodes did nothing, as the ratings are just as bad for two episodes of HE as they were for HE and "the B". It literally made no difference at all. I wouldn't be surprised to see "Endings" get yanked soon too.

Over on FOX, the decision to pull Ben & Kate was a good one, as the new Raising Hope double shot easily bested what B&K was doing in the same slot. A better lead-in also helped New Girl post its best numbers in weeks. The Mindy Project also rode the wave, rising two tenths.

Two episodes of Betty White's Off Their Rockers did even worse than usual for NBC. I love Betty White, but I think its time to send this show to a retirement home. Go On and The New Normal continued the Peacock's march to the gallows, both hitting series lows for the second straight week. Both comedies were once seen as sure bets for a second season, but have since crashed back to Earth. The CW had an okay night, with Hart Of Dixie dropping a single tenth, and Emily Owens MD matching last Tuesday.
