The two-hour fall season-finale of Dancing With the Stars led ABC to Tuesday overnight victory, with a three percent advantage over second-place CBS. But NBC is still the network to beat thanks to The Voice, while Fox and The CW were sorely lacking.
Two-hours of Dancing With the Stars scored an 11.5 rating/18 share from 9-11 p.m., peaking in the 10:30 p.m. half-hour with a 12.0/20. And, comparably, that was an increase of a hefty 135 percent from an encore of 8:30 p.m. holiday special Shrek the Halls (#3: 4.9/ 7). But one year earlier, the fall season finale of Dancing With the Stars concluded with a heftier 13.2/21 on Tuesday 11/22/11.
Earlier in the evening on ABC was a repeat of annual holiday special How the Grinch Stole Christmas at a respectable 5.1/ 8 (#3) at 8 p.m.
On CBS, the one-two punch of NCIS (#1: 12.1/19) and spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles (#2: 9.0/14) remains a force to reckon with from 8-10 p.m. But freshman drama Vegas at 10 p.m. continues to lose steam, with a series-low 6.1/10 in the overnights at 10 p.m. Comparably, retention for Vegas out of the 9:30 p.m. portion of NCIS: Los Angeles (8.9/14) was disappointing at 69 percent. And the older skew for the Dennis Quaid/Michael Chiklis 1960s set crime solver is a concern.
Over at NBC, rock-solid The Voice remained just that at a second-place 7.6/12 in the 8 p.m. hour. Comparably, that built from the first half of year-ago occupant The Biggest Loser (4.7/ 7 on 11/29/11) by 62 percent. And it will, no doubt, lead the evening among adults 18-49. But freshman sitcom Go On, with Matthew Perry, dipped to a distant third at 9 p.m., with a 4.0/ 6 (48 percent below the 8:30 p.m. portion of The Voice – 7.8/12). And The New Normal at 9:30 p.m. (which like Go On was renewed for the full season), sunk to a series-low 2.8/ 4 at 9:30 p.m. Comparably, that was 30 percent below Go On.
At 10 p.m., Parenthood on NBC perked up a bit to a 3.4/ 6 (#3) in the overnights. But, compared to one year earlier (4.0/ 7 on 11/29/11), that was down by 15 percent.
Elsewhere, two-hours of live action comedies on Fox -- Raising Hope (#4: 2.8/ 4), Ben & Kate (#4: 2.1/ 3), New Girl (#4: 3.2/ 5) and The Mindy Project (#4: 2.1/ 3) -- were down, on average, by an extensive 51 percent from the year-ago combination of Glee, New Girl and Raising Hope. Sophomore New Girl, in particular, dipped by 40 percent (versus a 5.3/ 8 on 11/29/11). And The CW capped off the evening with sophomore Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.2/ 2), which was equal to year-ago occupant 90210, and recent entry Emily Owens, M.D. (#5: series low 0.9/ 1), which dropped by 36 percent from failed year-ago occupant Ringer (1.4/ 2 on 11/29/11). Tick, tock…the cancellation clock is ticking on Emily Owens, M.D.
