A yuletide episode of "Glee" was off slightly from its performance last week, and while it still carried FOX to a win among adults 18-49 Tuesday night, CBS' lineup of reruns scored the biggest overall audience.

Elsewhere, "No Ordinary Family" ticked up a little in its second airing at 9 o'clock and The CW had its best Tuesday of the season so far.

CBS led the way Tuesday with 9.7 million viewers and a 6.2 rating/10 share among households in primetime. FOX (8.3 million, 4.8/8) came in third, a little ahead of NBC (7.8 million, 4.7/8). The CW drew 2 million viewers and a 1.2/2.

FOX's 3.3 rating in the adults 18-49 demographic was even with last week's performance and led the night. NBC took second in the demo with a 2.7, followed by ABC at 2.0. CBS averaged 1.7 and The CW 0.9.
