On Tuesday night, ABC started things off with Last Man Standing which was up two tenths in viewers and even in the demo. This show is doing quite well in its timeslot and it shows that there is definitely an audience for traditional, old-fashioned sitcoms. At 8:30pm, Man Up! was up four tenths in viewers and two tenths in the demo. While not officially cancelled, Man Up! will wrap after 13 episodes to make room for Work It! so it is essentially cancelled. At 9pm, the finale of the fall edition of Dancing with the Stars was up 4.5 million viewers and 1.4 demo points. It was a good showing but down a big 4.8 million viewers and 1.2 demo points from last fall's finale. ABC will certainly be trying to get a more buzzworthy cast for the spring edition. 

Elsewhere, CBS hit season lows across the board perhaps due to Dancing with the Stars and The X-Factor. At 8pm, NCIS was down 1.5 million viewers and a half a demo point. It will likely bounce back when it airs again as it usually does. At 9pm, NCIS: Los Angeles was down 1.1 million viewers and four tenths in the demo. Finally at 10pm, Unforgettable was down a million viewers and two tenths in the demo. Yes, it was against Dancing with the Stars but this doesn't seem like it will be a Tuesday player in the long run. CBS wasn't looking for something that did about the same numbers as The Good Wife.

On troubled NBC, The Biggest Loser was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo while Parenthood was down half a million viewers and a tenth in the demo for season lows. The sad thing is that a 1.9 demo at 10pm isn't bad for NBC. Over on FOX, they aired a performance show of The X-Factor instead of the usual lineup. It was below its Wednesday average but made the night more competitive overall.
