It was a typical overnight Tuesday victory for CBS with a first-place finish in each of the six half-hours care of NCIS (10.9 rating/17 share); NCIS: Los Angeles (9.9/16), which is benefiting opposite comedies on ABC, NBC and Fox; and recent entry Vegas (6.8/12). Vegas is similar to year-ago overnight levels for Unforgettable (which scored a 7.3/12 on 11/15/11). But the notably older skew for Vegas (a 1.7 rating/4 share among adults 18-49, according to the Live Plus Same Day data, in its most recent telecast, October 30) may not bode well for a second season renewal.
The live Dancing With the Stars Results Show on ABC finished a comfortable second in the overnights from 8-9 p.m., with a 9.1/14. And that, comparably, was 32 percent above competing The Voice on NBC (6.9/11). But The Voice will, of course, win the hour among adults 18-49 and it could lift the network to first overall for the evening in the demo.
The blatant observation in the 9 p.m. hour is too many sitcoms, with ABC, NBC and Fox vying for the same audience. NBC’s combination of Go On (#2: 4.1/ 6) and The New Normal (#2: 3.2/ 5) had the advantage, with retention for Go On out of the 8:30 p.m. portion of The Voice (7.0/11) at 59 percent. And Go On was on par with the year-ago overnights for former time period occupant The Biggest Loser. ABC was next care of Happy Endings (#3: 3.6/ 5) and Don’t Trust the B____ in Apartment 23 (#3: 2.9/ 5). But retention for Happy Endings out of the 8:30 p.m. portion of Dancing With the Stars (9.4/14) was an eyesore at just 38 percent. And the results among adults 18-49 are expected to be lacking for both alphabet net half-hours.
On Fox, New Girl (#4: 3.3/ 5) and recent entry The Mindy Project (#4: 2.2/ 4) were the lowest rated in the overnights. And New Girl is down by 34 percent from the year-ago evening (versus a 5.0/ 8 on 11/15/11). But the Zoey Dechanel half-hour did build from lackluster lead-in Ben and Kate (#4: 1.9/ 3 at 8:30 p.m.) by 74 percent. And the race to the finish line among adults 18-49 could fall in favor on New Girl. In a nutshell:
9:00 p.m. Overnights
Go On (NBC): 4.1/ 6, Happy Endings (ABC): 3.6/ 6, New Girl (Fox): 3.3/ 5
9:30 p.m. Overnights
The New Normal (NBC): 3.2/ 5, Don’t Trust the B____ in Apartment 23 (ABC): 2.9/ 5, The Mindy Project (Fox): 2.2/ 4
The moral of the story: Too many competing comedies in the 9 p.m. hour do not bode well for ABC, NBC and Fox. One of the three pairs needs to go.
Earlier in the evening on Fox was Raising Hope at a fourth-place 2.6/ 4, which dropped by 51 percent from the first half of former year-ago time period occupant Glee (5.3/ 8 on 11/15/11).
At 10 p.m., demo friendly Parenthood on NBC finished second behind Vegas on CBS in the overnights, with a 3.5/ 6. Third was soon-to-conclude Private Practice on ABC at a 3.1/ 5, which dropped from year-ago occupant Body of Proof (7.2/12 on 11/15/11) by a hefty 57 percent.
The CW capped off this second Tuesday in November with its low-rated combination of sophomore Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.2/ 2) and episode four of Emily Owens, M.D. (#5: 1.1/ 2), which dipped by 21 percent from failed year-ago occupant Ringer (1.4/ 2 on 11/15/11).
