The "Dancing With the Stars" results show was down a good amount Tuesday compared to last week's show, and "Body of Proof" also fell from its premiere (though it was up from Sunday's special airing). Both still led their hours, but that wasn't quite enough for ABC to overcome CBS for Tuesday's top spot.

CBS delivered just under 14 million viewers and an 8.8 rating/14 share in households for the night, beating out ABC's 10.8 million and 7.1/11. NBC (6.45 million, 4.1/6) came in third. FOX took fourth, albeit with just 3.2 million viewers and a 2.1/3, and The CW (715,000, 0.5/1) trailed.

None of the networks turned in much of a number in the adults 18-49 demographic, but CBS led the way with a 2.7. NBC finished second at 2.4, edging ABC's 2.3. FOX scored a 1.1 and The CW a 0.3.
