December 12, 2012
NBC’s “Take It All” grew slightly in its second outing last night as the network won the evening with the night’s top show, “The Voice.”
“Take” averaged a 2.3 adults 18-49 rating at 9 p.m., according to Nielsen overnights, up 5 percent from Monday’s premiere in the same timeslot.
“Take” is airing at 9 all this week as part of a special holiday stunt.
The game show owed its solid second-place finish in its timeslot to “Voice,” which averaged a 3.5 at 8 p.m.
Meanwhile, CBS’s “Vegas” continued to struggle at 10 p.m., drawing just a 1.5, down 6 percent from its most recent original two weeks ago. NBC’s “Parenthood” won the timeslot with a 2.0, equaling its best rating since Nov. 29, 2011.
ABC’s holiday special “Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town” averaged a 1.7 at 8 p.m., down from a 2.3 last year, when it aired on a Thursday. It was easily the night’s No. 1 show in kids 2-11, averaging a 2.7.
At 9:30 on ABC, “Don’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23” inched closer to cancellation with a mere 1.0, sliding 17 percent from last week.
On Fox, the 8 p.m. comedy “Raising Hope” saw the biggest gains of any show on the night, up 21 percent from the previous week to a 1.7.
NBC finished first for the night among 18-49s with a 2.6 average overnight rating and a 7 share. CBS was second at 2.3/6, Univision third at 1.6/4, Fox fourth at 1.5/4, ABC fifth at 1.3/4, 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.

ABC was third with a 1.7 for "Santa," Univision fourth with a 1.6 for "Por Ella Soy Eva," and Fox fifth with a 1.3 for "Hope" (1.7) and a rerun of "Ben and Kate" (0.8).
