TV ratings: 'Glee' up a little, 'Cougar Town' off slightly Tuesday; CBS coasts to victory
The last episode of "Glee" until April drew slightly better ratings than last week, but the numbers overall didn't bounce back much from last Tuesday's down night. CBS once again scored a big victory in viewers, although FOX made it a tight race in the adults 18-49 demographic.
Elsewhere, "Cougar Town" fell just a little bit from its premiere last week, and "New Girl" and "Unforgettable" dipped as well. "Parenthood" and "Body of Proof," however, improved some.
CBS won the total-viewer race by a huge margin, drawing 15.3 million people and a 9.7 rating/15 share in households. That was more than double the audience for second-place FOX (6.5 million, 3.9/6). NBC (6.1 million, 3.8/6) came in third, beating out ABC's 5.8 million viewers and 3.7/6. The CW scored 1.2 million viewers and a 0.8/1.
CBS earned a 2.9 rating among adults 18-49, barely beating FOX (2.8) for the top spot. NBC came in third with a 2.1, followed by ABC, 1.7, and The CW, 0.5.
