On Monday night, NBC was all new starting with the series premiere of Who's Still Standing? which is airing all week as a holiday special. It debuted to pretty low numbers but not disastrous considering the type of show and time of year. If it holds at these numbers on Tuesday night, NBC will probably be ok with it but we probably won't see it beyond this week unless NBC really needs a filler. At 9pm, week two of the revived Fear Factor was down a big 2.1 million viewers and a full demo point from last week at 9pm. Though the drop is steep, the overall number is good. If it can stay close to these levels, it will be a real solid filler for NBC until The Voice arrives.

FOX aired the season finale of Terra Nova which was up three tenths in viewers and a tenth in the demo. The show was underwhelming but not terrible in the ratings which makes for an interesting decision for FOX and I could honestly see things go either way. Because of the production schedule, it looks like FOX will be making its decision in January. Elsewhere on ABC, holiday specials, repeats, and You Deserve It were all low. Deserve was up a tenth in viewers and even in the demo. CBS was all in repeats but posted decent numbers. It's worth noting that 2 Broke Girls was easily the best demo among the repeats.
