ABC started Tuesday night slow but had a solid night from 9-11pm. The season (and likely series) finale of No Ordinary Family started things off and was up three tenths in viewers and even in the demo from the last Tuesday airing. The viewer total is the best since January but it's just too low overall to come back. At 9pm, the Dancing with the Stars results show was down a big 2.8 million viewers and 1.1 in the demo. Last week's results edition was unusually high so this drop isn't too surprising. Finally at 10pm, the second week (and third episode) of Body of Proof was down a big 2.7 million viewers and seven tenths in the demo, but the retention was very comparable. If it can level off anywhere close to these numbers, ABC will be thrilled given the state of their drama department.

CBS was new to start and end the night. At 8pm, NCIS was up seven tenths in viewers but down a tenth in the demo, tying a season low in that category. A repeat of NCIS: Los Angeles did very well for a repeat and with some decent competition on ABC and FOX. The Good Wife closed out the night and was up six tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week's lows despite having a repeat lead-in. Last week, there were likely many samplers of Body of Proof who may have come back to CBS this week plus The Good Wife doesn't have the same audience as the NCIS shows.

NBC started things off with The Biggest Loser, which was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo from last week. It may start to grow as the finale nears, like last fall. At 10pm, Parenthood was down a tenth in viewers and even in the demo, finishing in third in both categories for a three-headed drama race. This on-the-bubble show will likely get a renewal but should air at an earlier hour. FOX was very low with repeats across the board including a ridiculously tiny number for a Traffic Light rerun.
