-Ratings Breakdown:
It was another slam-dunk overnight Tuesday victory for CBS with its combination of NCIS (11.9 rating/19 share – No. 1 for the evening), spin-off NCIS: Los Angeles (10.1/16) and recent entry Unforgettable (7.3/12). But compared to year-ago Tuesday 10 p.m. occupant The Good Wife (8.6/14 on 12/14/10), Unforgettable dipped by 15 percent. Overall, CBS dropped by nine percent on the evening.

In season-finale news, a 9-11 p.m. edition of The Biggest Loser on NBC was above average at a 5.3/ 9 in the overnights. And that should be enough to win the 10 p.m. hour among adults 18-49. But compared to the year-ago fall season-ender (6.9/11 on 12/14/10), tired The Biggest Loser declined by a noticeable 23 percent. Here is the half-hour breakdown:

The Biggest Loser (NBC)
9:00 p.m.: 4.9/ 8 (#2)
9:30 p.m.: 5.3/ 8 (#2)
10:00 p.m.: 5.5/ 9 (#2)
10:30 p.m.: 5.5/10 (#2)

Earlier in the evening on NBC was 8 p.m. special, William & Kate: Inside the Royal Marriage, at a not so royal 4.0/ 6 (#4) at 8 p.m. One year earlier, game show Minute to Win It averaged a 4.4/ 7 on 12/14/10.

On Fox, deteriorating Glee, which no longer has a lock in the 8 p.m. hour among adults 18-49, finished a distant second in the overnights with a 5.4/ 9. New Girl at 9 p.m. was below average at a third-place 4.8/ 7 in the overnights at 9 p.m., followed by sophomore Raising Hope at a 3.7/ 6 at 9:30 p.m. Regardless, New Girl is still the show to beat in the 9 p.m. half-hour in the demo.

Over at ABC, Tim Allen sitcom Last Man Standing dipped to a series-low 4.8/ 8 at 8 p.m. (#3). A repeat of Last Man Standing, which replaced canceled Man Up!, followed with a 3.7/ 6 (#4) at 8:30 p.m. Next were encore telecasts of sitcoms The Middle (#4: 3.4/ 5) and Suburgatory (#4: 2.9/ 4) from 9-10 p.m., followed by a repeat of Body of Proof at a third-place 3.7/ 6 at 10 p.m.

As a reminder, Work It, which focuses on two recently unemployed car salesman (Ben Koldyke and Amaury Nolasco) who dress as women by day to work as pharmaceutical reps, debuts on ABC
at 8:30 p.m. ET/PT out of Lasting Man Standing on Tuesday, January 3. It leads into Celebrity Wife Swap at 9 p.m., which also opens on Jan. 3.

The CW closed this second Tuesday in December with encore episodes of 90210 (#5: 0.6/ 1) and Ringer (#5: 0.5/ 1).
