CBS topped the Tuesday overnight charts, finishing first in each of the six half-hours despite airing repeats of NCIS (7.6 rating/12 share -- #1 for the evening), spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles (7.2/.11) and older-skewing freshman entry Vegas (4.4/ 8).
In series-premiere news, ABC cooking competition The Taste, featuring Chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef and author Ludo Lefebvre and restaurateur Brian Malarkey scored a respectable (albeit non-spectacular) 4.5/ 7 in the overnights from 8-10 p.m. The positive news at first glance is the consistency. The Taste fluctuated by one three-tenths of an overnight rating point in each of the four half-hours (4.7/ 7 – 4.6/ 7 – 4.5/ 7 – 4.4/ 7). And The Taste was a notable improvement over the overnight averages for regularly scheduled 9-10 p.m. sitcoms Happy Endings and the just removed Don’t Trust the B____ in Apt. 23 (but not Dancing With the Stars, of course, in the Tuesday 8 p.m. hour). Let’s see happens next week when The Taste airs in its regularly scheduled one-hour format from 8-9 p.m. opposite an original installment of NCIS on CBS.
The Taste led into the series-finale of Private Practice, which exited with an uneventful second-place 4.2/ 7 in the overnights at 10 p.m.
In season-finale news, Parenthood on NBC, which did not receive a full episode order this season, concluded with a typical 3.9/ 7 at 10 p.m. Comparably, that built from lead-in The New Normal (#3: 2.8/ 4) by an impressive 39 percent. And it should have no trouble winning the time period among adults 18-49.
Earlier in the evening on NBC were two episodes of Betty White’s Off Their Rockers (8 p.m.: #3, 4.0/ 8; 8:30 p.m.: #3, 4.1/ 6) and freshman comedy Go On (#3t, 3.2/ 5), which is certainly not benefiting minus the recent support from former (and returning) lead-in The Voice. Yes, folks, lead-in still does matter.
Elsewhere, Fox’s sitcom combination of Raising Hope (#4: 3.0/ 5), Ben and Kate (#4: 2.0/ 3), fading New Girl (#3t, 3.2/ 5) and The Mindy Project (#4: 2.3/ 4) continues to non-impress. And The CW closed the night with sophomore Hart of Dixie (#5: 1.4/ 2), which is not strong enough to anchor the evening, and canceled Emily Owens, M.D. (#5: 1.2/ 2), which officially ends its 13-episode run on February 5.
