ABC had a solid Tuesday night but the 8pm hour continues to be a problem as Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution dropped seven tenths in viewers and a rough four tenths in the demo from its season premiere last week. This show just won't cut it on a night other than Friday and ABC is pulling it for a week next week for a Dancing with the Stars recap show, which is never a good sign. At 9pm, the results edition of Dancing with the Stars was up three tenths in viewers and down a tenth in the demo. At 10pm, Body of Proof has definitely stabilized as it was up three tenths in viewers and down just a tenth in the demo. A renewal seems a sure bet at this point which is not good news for the other freshman dramas.

CBS was in repeats on Tuesday night but still delivered solid numbers. A special repeat of NCIS: Los Angeles at 10pm delivered a better demo number than a first run episode of The Good Wife last week. NBC had mixed results. The Biggest Loser started things off and was down eight tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo for season lows. This should be building as the finale nears but it seems to be going in the wrong direction. At 10pm though, the season finale of Parenthood was up 1.1 million viewers and four tenths in the demo, delivering its best numbers since the second episode of the season last September. This happened despite a weaker lead-in and probably all but assures a third season for this critically acclaimed drama.

FOX was all new for the first time in several weeks. At 8pm, Glee returned to season lows as it was down 1.4 million viewers and four tenths in the demo from its last new airing. This isn't too surprising given the troubles 8pm shows have had lately and the fact that it had been in repeats for a month. Still, this show got over 13 million viewers and a 5.9 in the demo earlier this season so it may have peaked at this point. At 9pm, Raising Hope was down four tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from its last new airing, hitting series lows but posting better retention this week. At 9:30pm, Traffic Light was up nine tenths in viewers and four tenths in the demo from last week, when it followed a repeat. It's still a dead show walking at this point.
