man up ratings 320 TV ratings: 'Last Man Standing' solid, 'Man Up' so so; 'NCIS' and 'X Factor' leadFast national ratings for Tuesday, Oct. 18, 2011

Week two of “Last Man Standing” held up reasonably well for ABC Tuesday night. The premiere of “Man Up” did a decent job of retaining its lead-in audience but still didn’t quite live up to the strong debuts of some other comedies this season.

“NCIS,” as usual, scored the night’s biggest overall audience, and a Tuesday edition of “The X Factor” gave FOX a win among adults 18-49. Elsewhere, the “Dancing With the Stars” results took a big tumble, and “Ringer” was up a little bit from last week on The CW.

CBS averaged 15.4 million viewers and a 9.6 rating/15 share in households for the night. ABC (10.7 million, 6.9/11) finished second, a little bit ahead of FOX (10.15 million, 5.9/9). NBC was fourth with 5.1 million viewers and a 3.3/5, while The CW drew 1.6 million viewers and a 1.1/2.

FOX led the adults 18-49 demographic with a 3.8 rating, beating CBS’ 3.2. ABC came in third with a 2.4. NBC scored a 1.9 in the demo and The CW a 0.8.
