As has become usual, CBS easily won the night. NCIS fell a single tenth, while NCIS: LA went up two. New drama Golden Boy improved by three tenths over what Vegas drew in the same slot last week, but a 1.8 is still not going to get the show renewed on CBS. We'll see how it goes next week, but dramas rarely rise from their premiere episodes.
The season premiere of ABC's Celebrity Wife Swap went up a smidge from last year. The Taste fell two tenths however. Body Of Proof tied last week's series low, which doesn't bode well for its future. Raising Hope and The Mindy Project both tied last week's numbers for FOX, although New Girl managed to rise a tiny bit.
Another week, another horrible Tuesday for NBC. Betty White's Off Their Rockers stayed in its usual range of 1.3-1.4. Go On drew a 1.1, while The New Normal only managed a 1.0. Smash stayed flat with last week's series low of 0.9, as it continues its death march toward the cancellation axe. On the CW, Hart of Dixie rose a little, while Cult was dead even with last week's terrible 0.3 premiere demo. I hope it enjoys life in the Friday night dump bin.
