TV ratings: 'Rudolph,' 'Victoria's Secret' score for CBS Tuesday
A wholesome Christmas special and a bunch of models in lingerie carried CBS to a big ratings win Tuesday. Both "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show" improved on their ratings from last year, with the "VS" show rising by more than a full point among adults 18-49.
Elsewhere, "Glee," "New Girl" and "Raising Hope" were all up a bit from their last airings two weeks ago, and NBC's lineup and The CW's "90210" improved as well.
CBS scored 12.1 million viewers and a 7.1 rating/11 share in households Tuesday night, leading its closest competitor by more than 4 million viewers. ABC (7.5 million, 4.8/7) finished second, a little ahead of FOX (7.15 million, 4.2/6). NBC was fourth with 6.6 million viewers and a 4.3/7. The CW (1.6 million, 1.0/1) was off the pace.
The Eye also ruled the adults 18-49 demographic with a 3.8 rating, beating out FOX's 3.1. NBC came in third in the demo with a 2.3, followed by ABC, 1.7, and The CW, 0.7.
