NBC’s game show “Who’s Still Standing?” improved a little in its second night on the air and helped the network snag the top spot among adults 18-49 Tuesday night. As the networks went into rerun mode for the holidays, though, it was a pretty quiet evening.

ABC (4.7 million, 3.0/5) came in third, and FOX (3 million, 1.9/3) took fourth. The CW was a non-factor with 714,000 viewers and a 0.4/1.
