ringer full cast cw TV ratings: 'Ringer' has decent start Tuesday; 'America's Got Talent' leads the nightFast National ratings for Tuesday, Sept. 13, 2011

The premiere of “Ringer” put up pretty good numbers in CW terms and gave the network its best Tuesday performance in a couple years. But it doesn’t appear headed for breakout status. “America’s Got Talent” was the night’s top show, and the season premiere of “Parenthood” was pretty well in line with its performance last season.

CBS’ rerun lineup led the night in total viewers, averaging 8.9 million and a 5.8 rating/9 share in households. NBC (8.2 million, 5.1/8) came in second, a little ahead of ABC (7.65 million, 5.2/8). FOX (2.3 million, 1.5/2) finished a distant fourth and just held off The CW (2.2 million, 1.4/2) in total viewers.

NBC topped the adults 18-49 demographic with a 2.4 rating. ABC, 1.7, edged CBS, 1.6, for second place. The CW drew a 1.0, narrowly beating FOX’s 0.9.
