FOX won the demos, but in a rather embarrassing circumstance, CBS drew more total viewers. Why is losing to the most watched broadcast network an embarrassment for FOX? The Eye's line-up' was 100% re-runs.
A practically unopposed American Idol crashed and burned, dropping two tenths to a 3.0. The brand new Idol broadcast actually lost in both demos and total viewers to a Big Bang Theory re-run. Ouch. Glee fell three tenths to a 2.1, and was also vanquished by a BBT encore. ABC's Wife Swap continues to hover around a 1.5 demo.
Community rose a tenth to a 1.3 demo, but is still most likely a goner. Parks & Rec rose 13% to a 1.7. A second new P&R also drew a 1.7, which is a major increase from 1.1 that the Go On finale posted last week in the same slot. Hannibal dropped 18% to a 1.4 in week three, but is still a virtual lock to get renewed by NBC.
The Vampire Diaries dipped by around 20% for the CW, but remains one of the highest rated programs on the network. Beauty & The Beast matched its last new episode.
