New shows hit lows on Tuesday night
CBS's 'Vegas' slides to a 1.4 rating in adults 18-49
November 14, 2012
Absence apparently did not make the heart grow fonder for a number of Tuesday night shows, which were preempted last week for coverage of the presidential election.
ABC’s already-canceled “Private Practice,” CBS’s new show “Vegas” and “Ben and Kate,” one of Fox’s new comedies, saw especially notable slides.
“Practice” fell to a series-low 1.1 adults 18-49 rating at 10 p.m., according to Nielsen, placing fourth in the 10 p.m. timeslot.
It was down 21 percent from its most recent original outing three weeks ago.
“Vegas,” which has already received a full-season order, was down 6 percent from its previous outing to a 1.6, tying its series low.
And “Kate” also hit a new low with a 1.1, off 21 percent from its previous outing.
A few shows did see improvements, most notably Fox’s new “The Mindy Project,” up 13 percent to a 1.7, and the CW’s second-year drama “Hart of Dixie,” which had its most-watched episode (1.68 million total viewers) since last December.
ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars Results” (1.9) and NBC’s “The New Normal” (1.8) also grew slightly.
In the 9 p.m. comedy battle, NBC’s “Go On” finished slightly ahead of Fox’s “New Girl” with a 2.3 to the latter’s 2.2.
ABC’s sitcoms are struggling. “Happy Endings” managed a 1.4 at 9 p.m., while lead-out “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” fell to a series-low 1.1.
NBC finished first for the night among 18-49s with a 2.6 average overnight rating and a 7 share, followed closely by CBS at 2.5/7. Fox was third at 1.7/4, Univision fourth at 1.6/4, ABC fifth at 1.4/4, Telemundo sixth at 0.6/2 and CW seventh at 0.5/1.
As a reminder, all ratings are based on live-plus-same-day DVR playback, which includes shows replayed before 3 a.m. the night before. Seven-day DVR data won't be available for several weeks. Forty-six percent of Nielsen households have DVRs.
At 8 p.m. NBC led with a 3.8 for "The Voice," followed by CBS with a 3.0 for "NCIS." ABC was third with a 1.9 for "Dancing with the Stars," Univision fourth with a 1.7 for "Por Ella Soy Eva," Fox fifth with a 1.4 for "Raising Hope" (1.6) and "Kate" (1.1), CW sixth with a 0.7 for "Hart of Dixie" and Telemundo seventh with a 0.5 for "Rosa Diamante."
CBS took the lead at 9 p.m. with a 2.8 for "NCIS: Los Angeles," while NBC slipped to second with a 2.0 for "Go" (2.3) and "Normal" (1.8). Fox was third with a 1.9 for "Girl" (2.2) and "Mindy" (1.7), Univision fourth with a 1.8 for "Amores Verdaderos," ABC fifth with a 1.2 for "Endings" (1.4) and "Trust" (1.1), Telemundo sixth with a 0.5 for "Corazon Valiente" and CW seventh with a 0.4 for "Emily Owens, M.D."
At 10 p.m. NBC regained the lead with a 1.8 for "Parenthood," with CBS second with a 1.6 for "Vegas." Univision was third with a 1.3 for "Amor Bravio," ABC fourth with a 1.1 for "Practice" and Telemundo fifth with a 0.6 for "Pablo Escobar: El Patron del Mal" (0.8) and "El Rostro de la Venganza" (0.5).
CBS led the night among households with a 9.2 average overnight rating and a 14 share. ABC was second at 4.4/7, NBC third at 4.2/7, Fox fourth at 2.1/3, Univision fifth at 2.0/3, CW sixth at 1.0/1 and Telemundo seventh at 0.7/1.
