Fox returned to its regularly scheduled programming after a few weeks off for baseball and its entire lineup was down.
Glee (7.4 million total viewers, 2.9 rating in adults 18-49 demographic), featuring the first appearance of The Glee Project co-winner Damian McGinty, posted a 19 percent decline from its last original four weeks ago, with the hourlong topped by CBS’ NCIS in its time slot. The episode was also the lowest-rated for the series. New Girl (7.5 million, 3.5) saw a 19-percent dip and Raising Hope (5.5 million, 2.5) sank 14 percent. Even so, the former won its 9 p.m. half-hour among adults 18-49 and the younger 18-34 demos. Fox notes that its programming almost always posts declines after baseball and expects its lineup to return to “normal” in a few weeks.

CBS’ dramas also saw a dip across the board, though the network still came out on top in viewership (15.4 million) and the 18-49 demo (3.2) for primetime. NCIS (19.4 million, 3.9) and NCIS: LA (15.6 million, 3.4) were both down 5 and 8 percent, respectively, while rookie procedural Unforgettable (11.3 million, 2.3) dipped 8 percent to hit its lowest-rated telecast so far. Notably, NCIS topped Glee at 8 p.m. to win the hour in coveted 18-49 demo, while NCIS: LA and Unforgettable also won their respective time periods.
ABC’s man comedies Last Man Standing (9.3 million, 2.6) and Man Up! (6.4 million, 1.8) both posted their lowest-rated telecasts so far in their young seasons, down 10 percent. Dancing With the Stars (15.2 million, 2.8), meanwhile, rose 8 percent for its latest elimination episode, which saw David Arquette getting the boot. That boosted Body of Proof (10.1 million, 2.0) 11 percent at 10 p.m.
NBC saw double-digit growth for The Biggest Loser (6.4 million, 2.2), which hit a season high in viewership, and Parenthood (5.3 million, 2.2), which has vastly improved on its ratings performance compared to last season.
The CW’s 90210 (1.5 million, 0.7) grew 6 percent in total viewers compared to its last original episode on Oct. 18. Ringer (1.8 million, 0.8) held steady in total viewers and 18-49, but improved 14 percent in the younger 18-34 category to post a 0.8.
